BEST PART WAS NEW ORLEANS!: Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by Pokerbee
Overall Member Rating
BEST PART WAS NEW ORLEANS!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
Big disappointment was the food. Dining room was horrible. Warm salads, cold soups.
Best dinner was the specialty teppanyaki, well worth the $25 fee. You can get anything you want on the menu, combined.... they don't tell you that, but we learned from someone ordering from our table! So order up and enjoy all the filet, seafood you want!
Shows were by standard....just a cruise show. Guess I'm spoiled with having been on the Oasis/Allure and seeing broadway shows, etc.
Casino was very smoking. Wish they could learn how to upscale there ventilation system in that part of ship.
Spa was awesome. We both bought the week pkg. to enjoy the sauna/steam, hot tubs, and reclining tiled lounge chairs..... so worth the $119 for the whole week. They only sell a certain amount, so this area is not over crowded, well worth heading to spa upon boarding to insure we got this package.
Overall it was fun, as my sister and I just made the best of it, but I will not be cruising NCL again, as there are better cruise companies in my opinion. Less
Cabin was very roomy for 1 person. Had queen bed. Pushed up against the wall, which made more room in cabin. Plenty of storage, drawers, open shelf area.
Port and Shore Excursions
Great tour! Clean brewery, it felt like it wasn't in Belize it was so clean. Bus ride to it took 30 mins. approx. Included 5 tastings of their beer, and 4 frosted mugs of your favorite beer!! (Hiccup)
I stayed on ship.... don't care for this port, but my sister shopped and loved it! Go figure!
Shopped and drank!! Always a fun port! Jewelry purchases are the best here!!
