A great time and a great way to visit Alaska by luchtm

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This was a great way to see Alaska. I had taken the trip before on NCL, but wanted to take friends who've never been on a cruise before... The verdict is still out. The cruise life is not for everyone, but NCL does it in a great way. The ship offers lots of amenities and activities for everyone. The staff and crew were very attentive and helpful. It's not easy trying to please everyone, but they handle it well... The ports of call were wonderful. Really liked Icy Strait Point (Hoonah) because we were the only ship there that day. Made for a less hectic visit. Really enjoyed spending time in Hoonah and the walk to the village.

60th Birthday Celebration!! by sheliaamos1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

A childhood friend and I were celebrating 1958 (the year of our birth). This was her first cruise and it will be hard to top. The views and excursions were excellent, and the meals on the ships restaurants were superb. I would advise the drink and specialty dining packages. And take plenty of electronics to capture the breathtaking views.

Very nice cruise by horbacz51

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Booked a cabin for 4 people and got a room with only 3 beds. Went to Guest Services to see if a change could be made and they said that the ship was fully booked and no change could be made. They decided to put a cot in the room which left no room on either side of the beds to get out and had to get off at the end of the bed.

Good ship, wonderful itinerary by dlee17

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship was good. Staff were courteous, food was good, ship's condition was good. The entertainment was ok. The final show, cirque bijou, was pretty good. Other than that, a lot of people just walked out during the show. Itinerary was very good. That's what made us take this cruise. Tokyo to seattle via alaska. Japanese ports were pretty good. Alaska was very good. We did not enjoy Russia.

Another Unique Experience by shazamdroid

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We chose this itinerary to experience a repositioning cruise. For that reason, I found the entire cruise enjoyable because we had several sea days in which to relax. Can't say that I would do this again because Petropavlovsk and Hoonah were big disappointments. The Japan ports were the best!

Asia Adventure by Niles1339

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The ports were great, some of the excursions were too rushed with too many stops. The food wasn't very good on the ship. The Haven area is tiny--and over-priced for what you get--I would not recommend the Haven on the Jewel.

Disappointing Cruise by FirstCruiseinAu

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Overall I will not be going on the Norwegian Jewel again. While the standard for food may be lower in Australia, I don’t think cold food and food that was cooked hours ago is acceptable to be served anywhere, whether it’s the buffet or main dining rooms.

French Polynesia by rtofny

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Had a great time. Met a lot of nice people. Made new friends. Don't like the little cutbacks. Like a chocolates on the pillow and chocoholics night. I didn't mind the tips have gone up. The kitchen and housekeeping staff are well worth it. My biggest complaint was the visa that I was unaware of. In the end I purchased two next S. Wasn't going to do it based in my last experience. But this cruise was so much better than the one I took.l in May. I like carnivals internet policy. It's $5 a day for social media. It's a great idea when you need to contact family.

Nice but not great by trees4two

Verified Review

The glaciers were the best part. I wouldn't advise anyone to cruise this area this late in the season. Too rainy and the ports were mainly small and poor.

Best Alaskan Cruise. by jstolt256

Verified Review

This is a definite must for cruising if you don't mind cooler temps and love nature. The landscape and ports were stunning. A helicopter ride to the glaciers is a must.

Hottest Alaskan Cruise by maureengallaghe

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Dave, the cruise director was personable, fun and really made you feel at home. The staff always said hello and asked if they could help. My steward went out of his way to compliment me and ask about my day. Everything flowed nicely. There was something going on all the time, shows, music, games, and non-stop food options. I was traveling by myself, but never felt alone. Looking forward to going on my next cruise.

Worst vacation ever by kalieske

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Overall this trip was a HUGE disappointment. Norwegian sucked and we will NEVER cruise with them again. And Cheap Cruises was also incredibly disappointing. We called many times after our initial booking - they were horrible about getting back to us. Won't be using them ever again either.

Great locations, had fun in the ports, room was clean and staff was very friendly. Food was ok, drinks were decent. Overall, i had a fun time but a 5 days cruise would have been good enough for me.

Nice ship. Captain very personable. by mmdiggs

Nice sized ship. Great ports. This itinerary gives you less tie in each port but brings you back to Seattle. I though it was perfect. Would love a bit more time in the Glacier Bay.

Just okay, watch the fees and the cost for drinks. Both are outrageous. Not a horrible experience, but not a great one wither. First time, last time NCL cruiser.

Wonderful itinerary, awful ship by mllatko

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ports of call were great, and highly recommended. But you should absolutely go see them on a different ship from a different cruise line. The NCL Jewel features below average entertainment, terrible staff, even worse food, on a beat-up, dirty ship.

Fantastic Alaska Cruise on the Norwegian Jewel! by samboothbass

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The only reason we took points off is because many things felt very nickel-and-dimey. Lots and lots of fees. We're not sure we would book Norwegian again. I am also upset that I did not realize that I could have gotten a discount as a Caesars Platinum member....
