Norwegian Jewel

April 2015 - Norwegian Jewel to Caribbean - Western

Great Cruise on the Jewel

Had a great time with the family. We had a balcony stateroom. The size was what I expected. It's hard with three people in the room, would be small for four people sharing one room. Even with all of the hand sanitizer on board and the constant washing of hands, we still got sick on the boat. The ships doctor treated us and we lost a day of our cruise, luckily it was an at sea day.

We went to the ports of Banana Coast, Cozumel and Belize. Had beautiful weather. The ship is an older ship and smaller in compared to the mega ships but that didn't bother us at all. The pool area on at sea days is very crowded, get there to get your chairs early.

We didn't use the kids club but enjoyed the nightly shows. The specialty dining is a must. Belize didn't offer as much entertainment as I would have liked. We went to the monkey tour in Belize as an excursion that we purchased off the boat. Same with Cozumel, book off the ship, for better prices. When you arrive in Cozumel and Belize there are plenty of "safe" people offering tour options right at the docking area. In Honduras I would suggest booking an excursion from the ship.

Tendering to small boats was a bit of a challenge, I would suggest getting up and going before the tickets are handed out. Otherwise, you will wait to get off the ship at the port. Overall a nice cruise.

texasgiles's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - The xrail off road cars are lots of fun but you WILL get dirty. Wear a poncho and a bandana to cover your face. Our kids loved it but mom took a pass that day.
Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - The drink staff at showtime were seriously understaffed in manpower. Order your drink somewhere else and walk it into the theatre to avoid waiting for a server. Also, go to the shows early for the best seats, it fills up fast!
