Norwegian Jewel - Eastern Caribbean
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
I found it curious how the bar staff prepared a drink, all the alcohol was carefully poured into a shot glass with a line around it, never during the week did I see bartender pour anything but exactly one shot. If you ordered a glass More of wine it was first poured into a measuring device before being poured into your glass, obviously they wanted to make sure the staff did not pour any more than one glass.
The officers on the ship were aloof and in some cases downright rude. Never, in one week did anyone of the offer a good morning or a hello. I went to the service desk three days into our cruise to inquire why everyday I had to have my key card re-programmed. When the staff member could not offer an explanation or even an apology I asked to speak to the officer in charge of this area. When this officer showed up he also offered no explanation either and seemed rather put out that he was forced to take the time to speak with a guest. I have had better service at a Super Eight.
We definitely saw a number of passengers who were struggling with being sea sick. I would recommend taking some precautions. We used the patch and found that it worked well for us.
I don't wish to sound to negative. We enjoyed our week on the Jewel. If you are scheduled to cruise on the Jewel, you should have a pleasant time. If you are shopping for a cruise you may want to try another ship and a different line Less
Repeat ship, different cruise.
Fantastic cruise but they coul...
