20 CRUISES AND STILL LOVING IT-Best value for traveling
Destination: Baltic Sea
Norwegian Jewel was very good. Beauiful ship but miss the big beautiful atiums of other lines. Dining-Good alternative dining, though we never pay for extra dining. We prefer to travel more often and economize. Loved the Blue Lagoon (never crowded), especially while leaving a port. Comfort food great there. Dining room good but SLOW service. Waiters terribly rushed. Not enough staff. Started eating at buffet to hurry it along to get somewhere else . Crepes there terrific
Entertainment-Some old and tired, some very good,. Violins show and Cirque show terrific. No fun piano bar like RCCL and HOLLAND. Boring guitar player in lounges. Bored looking audience, but nowhere else to go. Piano player very accomplished, but sometimes frantic jazz type style hard to listen to very long.
Cabins-Adequate but bad lighting. Could not read well without portable light. Bedding and mattress wonderful.
Enrichment-Destination speaker excellent but not enough other good More enrichment. Acupuncture speaker a joke. Just selling with little authority of subject. Heard many complaints of nothing to do on sea days. Many things geared to selling to passenger's. Needs more arts, crafts, computer or hands on stuff.
Embarkation: Excellent on and off.
Shore Excursions-Expensive like all ships. Didn't take any Less

Window cabin was roomy enough with enough closet space for all of our stuff. Mid ship near elevator-very handy. One big complaint-lighting is terrible. Could not read anywhere without portable light. BEDDING TERRIFIC.
