Review summary

I took my parents for their 55th anniversary. It was our first cruise. Freestyle really worked for us as they like to wear comfortable clothes and shoes without worrying about formal dress codes. We really enjoyed the acrobatic show by Rinat and Elena. We had to get up early for The Land's End excursion at Cabo. It was nice, but the boat ride was rough. The bus tour at Puerto Vallarta was physically challenged for my parents as it involved a lot of walking on steps and slope. The topless bus tour at Mazatlan was nice for people who cannot walk a lot.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We enjoyed Garden Cafe buffet very much. A lot of choices of meat, vegetables, and fruit, so we enjoyed buffet for every meal every day. Thank NCL Jewel for providing hot milk at breakfast buffet because my elderly parents only drink hot milk.


5 out of 5
Be in the theater about 20-25minutes prior to show time if you want to pick a good seat. Great shows, and don't miss the show by Rinat and Elena. Their performance was amazing.

There is a coffee maker in the cabin! The balcony is great!

Ship tip

The sun decks are the most popular place, so may need to be there to get a seat around 11 am
