NCL Jewel

Sail Date: August 15, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony



NCL Jewel was fantastic.  The entertainment was the best compared to other lines.  We received the Ultimate Dining Package as a upgrade.  There were 5 specialty restaurants.  Cagney's and La Bistro were the best.  NCL does sell this package and its well worth it.

The only minor negative is that the ship stayed to long in Skaway and not long enough in Victoria.

I recommend that you purchase off shore excursions through Cruise Brothers.  They offer the same tours and a much reduced rate.

Ship pricing to high for excursions.

They need to have more classes i.e. ice sculpture . Too many activities at the same time. I wanted to see and participate but they were the same time as the main show.
