7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 24, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

We enjoyed the ship and we had fun but the ports of Belize and Honduras were horrible. We have seen these ports in pictures that other cruise lines use and these are not on the best part of these islands. Norwegian takes you to bad areas not pretty at all. The food on the ship was not that great and neither was most of the entertainment. We had fun but we were disappointed. We had heard that Norwegian was better than Carnival but we thought Carnival was much better.
