Ship Facts: Norwegian Jewel Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Jewel Deck Plans
Canada New England/A pleasant surprise
We have sailed twice on Holland America, about 8 on Royal Caribbean, and this is our second and last Norwegian cruise. We found the food just not quite up to snuff-not a big deal, but for us Mid-Westerner's, too much East Indian food on the buffet. Steaks were tough and lacked taste. Soft serve ice cream was a gritty ice cream. Never a cookie to be found, one of our friend's asked for some with coffee, and they suddenly appeared-the same three every day. The desserts tended to be molded or cubed Jello-every day, or a bread pudding with sauce. Perhaps that's where ships are cutting costs, and also their breads. More variety of rolls and breads at the Buffet, but the same two breads in the dining room every evening. We had a wonderful tour for Cruise critic's with Captain, and it was superb! The waiter's and the room attendants were a 10, we couldn't find employees of the ship more polite.

The good thing about this cruise are the ports of call,Newport, Halifax, Quebec City, Corner Brook, NL,Canada, Sydney NS. Each one has great history, and tours to help you enjoy something in each city, or quaint town. Leaving out of New York was a plus, as we had never been there, and three couples took two bus tours and walked all over-so much to see, safe, well lit, and very friendly, helpful people-it was a wonderful 24 hours there. Next time we will stay an extra day or two. We still love cruising, easy to unpack, and return to your ship each evening, with good entertainment, relaxation,
