Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by jayhawk72: Nice cruise no colors
Overall Member Rating
Nice cruise no colors
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
This was our 9th cruise, 4th on NCL. Cruising out of New York gave some time to sight see prior to the cruise. The Jewel was a very nice ship. Embarkation and debarkation went without any problems.
The ship was very clean and our stateroom was quite adequate with more storage the we needed. Rommel, our room steward, was the best we have ever had. The entertainment was second only to the Epic. Big Ken kept things moving and light. Big Ken, the CD, also sang very well. Captain Lars was a joy, great sense of humor. We enjoyed exercising and were a little disappointed that so many treadmills were out of order. Hope this is corrected in the future. We had great service throughout the ship, but the Tsars restaurant staff was great. All in all the food was only fair at best, but still we had plenty of choices. We ate at Cagney's and my steak was great.
The ports was nice but not very exciting. The fall foliage was all still green. Portland and Halifax were More very nice. Sidney had nothing much but a nice pub and Canadian beer. I must say this was a nice ship and I would be glad to sail on it again. Oops my wife eats veg and was disappointed that the meals were mostly pasta and not more creative Less

Cabin review: OB5584 Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window
We had an ocean view on deck 5. It was alright for our needs. The desk is a little to close to the bed and I had to get around it when going to bed. Would like to see more fitted sheets as the ones they use do not stay in place. The storage was good, more than we needed. The bathroom was small but heck it is a cruise ship. All in all we were satisfied.Read All Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window (OB) Reviews >>
