Ship Facts: Norwegian Jewel Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jewel Deck Plans
Great trip with friends thru Panama Canal

Originally I was worried about the number of sea days debut b/c we were with friends we spent the afternoon playing cards on those days.

The steward we had was excellent in taking care of our cabin.

The gym could use a few more recumbent bikes-- the exercise room stayed empty most of the time but the tread mills, elliptical machines and bikes stayed very busy.

The food was the best. We ate at both the freestyle dining rooms -- Azure and Tsar's for dinner

And the Cafe on deck 12 for breakfast and lunch. The choices were amazing and there were plenty of serving stations so there were virtually no lines.

We were greeted regularly by the officers as they moved through the dining room.

Our excursions were as advertised and went well. They were worth the money. One was cancelled in Puerto Vallarta b/c of lack of participation but there was room on another which turned out to be a lot of fun.

We rode the camels in Cabo San Lucas and our guide was a scream. I loved it.

The only issue we had was the shuttle to the airport. We had to wait an hour after disembarking for a bus-- there were several which filled up fast. We were told that there weren't enough buses available that day. Don't know if it was NCL or the bus company that messed up but next time we will take a taxi. The shuttle for 2 people was $30. No idea what a taxi would cost but there would be no wait.

OVERALL, we had a wonderful trip. The passage thru the Panama Canal was exceptional.
