Norwegian Jewel
7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 08, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 10514
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Good basic cruise, great weather, etc.  Room steward was excellent.  The ship staff from officers to cleaning people were all pleasant and welcoming.  The entertainment by ship's performers and a couple from Russia were outstanding - some of the very best we have experienced on a ship. Food was generally very good - fairly typical cruising fare.  Our first meal in Tzar's restaurant was cold and inedible, but the rest of the meals there were great.  Ate in two of the specialty restaurants and they were excellent.  We are platinum or diamond with five cruise lines, and have concluded that "bang for the buck" NCL is probably the best.  We will concentrate on NCL for future cruises.

It was fine. Just a little tighter than on other ships

Ship Tip

DO NOT do the free cruise drawing! It was scheduled for 3:30 p.m. They (cruise staff) continued to sell tickets and bingo cards until after 4:00 then announced that the drawing would not occur until after the first two games of bingo - which were dragged by assistant cruise director. Drawing at 5

Really did not spend any time there
