Princess price for slightly better than Carnival experience: Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by piazzapick
Overall Member Rating
Princess price for slightly better than Carnival experience
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
The "do it yourself" More disembarkation process was super easy. That was the best in our four cruises. The spa was nice and the unlimited use was a highlight, but that cost us $300 ($149pp). It was free on Princess. The entertainment was good. The show band was outstanding. We also enjoyed the dance lessons. Daniko was a great teacher.
We also needed more time in each port. By the time you got off the boat you had to worry about getting back on in time. This was the bumpiest ride of our four cruises. My wife and I both lost a night each to sickness. Bottom line we will probably not cruise with NCL again in favor of Royal Caribbean, Princess, Holland, and Celebrity. Especially if the prices are similar.

Cabin review: 11xxx
Cabin was the usual small inside stateroom. 11th deck forward. Very quiet. Not near an elevator. Easy to get to the gym, spa, buffet, and one of the lounges.
