Review Summary

We had a fabulous time on the Norwegian Jewel Cruise.  Family time is always a highlight and there is plenty of family time on a cruise.  We loved our stateroom porter, Paul.  He was attentive and funny. The flexible dining is nice, since you eat so much it is great that you are not tied down to a certain time each night for dinner.  We enjoyed swimming and snorkeling with the stingrays in Cozumel, and cave tubing in Belize.  It would have been a lot better had it not rained on the trip, but weather is not guaranteed on any trip.  The best part of the trip was the entertainment and things to do on the ship.  The shows were family friendly and fun.  There was a lot of entertainment offered each day - all day!  The boys loved the kids club and made some friends that they are still in contact with.

The only downfall of the trip (besides rain) was the long trip from the airport to the Bay Harbor Terminal.  We also missed chocolates on our bed each night!  We would recommend this trip to family and friends.  We made lots of great memories!

Ship Tip

For example: If no tables at the garden cafe, walk to the Aft of deck 12 and take your food into Cucina. Was empty for the most part!

Outside of the shopping area is pretty messy with all the people wanting to "help" you shop. We have been to Honduras before and had a similar experience, we had hoped that would have changed
