7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)

Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 11082
Traveled As: Couple

We appreciated the streamlined embarking procedures and wondered how the disembarking ones could be improved.  Far too much time in line trying to get through, including a long hurry-up-and-wait time on the ship's deck before being allowed to proceed down the Z-way.

We had the dining package which worked out nicely since we didn't have to pay any extra charges at the now-ala carte restaurants.  However, I can't see how this change is going to net  NCL any additional monies.  The excellent Italian restaurant was empty. 

Really appreciated the no-smoking policy!

Yes, we are in our 70s, but would have appreciated more rock music opportunities.
