A pleasant surprise

Sail Date: February 01, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

First cruise on NCL and was pleasantly surprised. Ship was welcoming and easy to navigate.

Pros: Easy access to Tsar's Palace dining room

Cons: Too many designated smoking areas

Recommends Norwegian Jewel? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was clean; some areas needed minor repairs due to normal wear and tear; one area of hallway had an odor that was being worked on.
Food and Dining
Food quality was average to good. We ate early in Tsar's Palace and had a window seat every night.
Cabin / Stateroom
Inside room included a drop-down bunk for a third passenger. This impeded getting into and out of bed. Bathroom configuration with toilet on angle made it difficult for tall and/or large-sized person to sit comfortably without knees hitting wall. However\, shower\, sink and countertop were adequate. Room lighting was very poor.
Service and Staff
Staff were very friendly and responsive.
Only went to 2 theater shows. Music around ship was enjoyable.
