NCL Jewel Trip Sept 2015

Sail Date: September 12, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

First the Good: Food served was fantastic both in variety, flavor and preparation.  Ship's staff were very friendly and attentive to travelers needs. Ship condition observed by visiting most of the decks showed that the crew was "on the job" around the clock.  Now, the not so good.  Dining area in the Garden Cafe is lacking the table space for pleasant dining without crowding, movement to and from and through the narrow area is difficult.  Staterooms could be better arranged to allow passage to the bed by the installed table/cabinet.  TV mounting could be improved so not in way of movement thru cabin.  Overall experience of this cruise compared to last year's cruise on NCL Pearl shows great improvement in area of food served and condition of ship. 




Cabin / Stateroom
Comment above concerning obstructing furniture to bed area and placement of TV are two areas that could improve. To use bathroom area is a challenge at times especially in commode area (small space). Cleanliness was great and extra service given by our steward made this trip special.
