Overall Member Rating
Norwegian Jewel - Trans-Atlantic
The sea was extremely calm - almost like glass the entire trip. The were a few small whitecaps in the Mediterranean but very smooth. The temperatures was about 65-75 but breezy. It wasn't like Caribbean cruise temperatures. But they kept the pool temperatures at 82 More and 88 degrees. Being at sea for a week before the first port-of-call was one of the best parts of the trip.
The nightly entertainment was awesome. The big NCl shows were incredible. Entertainment in the lounges was very good, too.
Our ports of call were Funchal, Madeira; Rome; Naples/Pompeii; Crete; Athens. crete was our least favorite but they were all so great.
There was a laundry room on the ship (deck 9) that's free (except for detergent). Once people realized it was there it was extremely crowded.
The average age of passenger was about 70. We're in our mid-40's. But surprisingly, the "seniors" really weren't grouchy and complainers.
We would recommend a trans-atlantic cruise to anyone who has the time. Less

Fun with limits
Cruising the Panama Canal was ...
