Overall Rating:

3 out of 5
Sail Date: August 01, 2013
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 4 years ago

The ship is clean and well organized. Entertainment is good. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious. Ports are well planned. But like all ships designed to carry more than 2000 people\, it's crazy crowded. The dining buffet during meal times is a the most crowded and noisy place. The food is acceptable\, but a lot like a Golden Corral steakhouse during rush hour. Cruising to Alaska is the only way to do Alaska. You can get a feel for Alaska without constantly packing and unpacking your bags between hotels and destinations.

Pros: Rooms are clean\, spacious bathrooms\, friendly\, attentive stewards

Cons: The Garden Buffet is like a cattle drive. Crowded. Crazy. Food is acceptable. It's like you're at \"Golden Corral\" during rush hour\, only 10 times worse.

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!
