An Awesome Alaskan Cruise! by DebfromPgh

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

This cruise was a great way to experience Alaska! Each port had something different to offer and Vancouver is a "must see" city at the beginning of your trip. We took our 2 young adults with us and definitely enjoyed this as a family vacation. The ship was clean & beautiful and had lots to offer in the way of activities & entertainment. The staff was wonderful! The only downfall is that the cruise line needs to include a lounge with current music to appeal to those who want that. Too many oldies for the younger cruisers and for those who like Top 40 music.

Nice cruise by dsvend85

Alaskan Cruise out of Vancouver and ended in Seward. I would recommend the train to take you to the airport in Seward you really get to see a lot. The towns we visited were very commercialized from the cruise ships which was disappointing ( if you have been on any cruises you know what I mean diamonds international and tanzanite international to name a few) but the excursions were good. I expected more seafood than what we received but the food was good.

Alaska is magnificent scenery. On the ship you go to places you would not be able to see any other way.

Alaska was amazing! We would cruise on Norwegian again, but hopefully would receive better food and service.

Good Value by dlsalse

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ever went really well on the ship. Anytime there was entertainment it was way too loud. We couldn’t find a quite bar to go to unless outside and it was too cold. Service was great though. All staff was very friendly. We did all our tours independently and worked out great.

Cruising Alsaka a Must DO. But do it WELL. by nicktaluja

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

The overall places in Alaska are beautiful, although we could have skipped some ports like Skagway [for sure we didnt do the dog sledding at $300 per person which could have been fun]. It should be on every person's bucket list; however if you decide to do it budget an extra $1000 per person and do it right. And better to do it without kids; we took ours with kids hearing other traveler reviews, but its hit or miss.

A Bucket List Cruise to Alaska by spert

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The scenery in Alaska is magnificent. Although the Jewel doesn't have all the bell and whistles that the newer mega-ships have, it has everything needed for a fun cruise. The crew was very friendly and helpful.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
