Olga didn't change our vacation!: Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by growinassets

Olga didn't change our vacation!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
The Freestyle Cruising is not for everyone, but the Norwegian Jewel was designed with this type of cruising in mind. We did an NCL Freestyle cruise three years ago and were not really impressed as the dining room had long lines and the service was really below par (for any dining experience). This time was much different. We experienced practically NO WAITING at any of the restaurants. The service was very good with some exceptional servers that we actually got to know (and requested to be served by at later dining times). The food quality wasn't outstanding, but we are not going to complain because it was about what we expected. Being able to have flexibility with your schedule from day to day is a real advantage. While one port might have you back to the ship late, you don't need to rush to get showered and to the dining room by your schedule dining time or settle for the buffet. Freestyle does make sense and is a definite advantage when the ship is designed for this like the Norwegian Jewel. Less
