Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review to North America
The food and service was great and the ports of call, San Francisco and Victoria BC, were really fun. I LOVED the spa package and found it very relaxing to get away whenever I needed a break from the festivities. Even though this was a "full" cruise, it didn't seem crowded and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. I really liked the Yoga class that was offered most mornings and the Cardio Dance Class. I didn't mind paying for the Yoga class and would have happily paid for the Cardio Dance class had it been a full hour - I wasn't that fond of having it at The Fyzz Lounge as it seemed a little awkward. Tsars was such a lovely place to dine I would have had every meal there, but we did try the specialty dining as well; Cagney's for steak one night (yum!) and LeBistro, which had a great menu and a really cozy vibe. The Jewel is one of the older ships and it seemed a bit dated at times, but I found the size quite charming and easy to navigate with plenty of variety for everyone in our group of 4.

Get the spa package for when the crowds start to wear on you - it is a great deal and there are separate sex and unisex areas, so you will always have a "decompress" space. Tsars for lunch and breakfast - even on a full ship, there was always a quiet place to eat.
