Not One of the Better Cruises We have Been On!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The population was extremely old! I know that this is not Norwegians fault but my God, all the scooters, walkers, and canes became a safety hazard for everyone else. Way too many passengers for the size of ship, it seemed.
Another area that we found truly amazing was that the tv in our room was older, tube type, 11 inch screen, with only four or five stations; only two were movies and they replayed over and over!
The Jewel looks beat up! It looked tired! I found myself constantly comparing this ship and its services to Royal Caribbean, which we are avid cruisers. There is no comparison at More all! Our travel agent did tell us that but we thought possibly it would be nice to try another line. We will never, ever, book another cruise with Norwegian again! If not for the entertainment I would rate this entire cruise a two star! Less
Cabin review: B29114 Family Balcony
Very small balcony room! TV was antiquated, a small 11 inch tube type on the shelf. Flat screen TVs are so inexpensive now, and the Jewel still has this awful tv in service. Edges of carpet around room was not vacuumed, center of floor was clean but no effort taken for cleaning edges!Read All Family Balcony (B2) Reviews >>
