Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by mistertoaster: Love the Haven
Overall Member Rating
Love the Haven
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
We cruised on the Jewel during Spring break. We booked the owner's suite, and loved the many amenities that accompany that suite. In particular, we spent a lot of ship time in the Haven. No more fighting for lounge chairs on the pool deck, or getting up early to save a seat near the pool. Both the indoor pool deck in the Haven and the outdoor sun deck are excellent. That alone was worth the price of the owner's suite (which was very reasonable on this cruise at $4500 for a family of four). Additionally, we had an excellent butler and an excellent concierge. We had priority in embarking and disembarking. We also had priority disembarking at each ports. We never felt like we had to fight crowds. Everything was taken care of by the Jewel staff.
Entertainment on the Jewel is excellent. The husband and wife acrobats were amazing. A must see show. The magician/comedian was very funny and very good at his craft. The Cirque de Bijou show was also entertaining.
We dined at More Mama's, Chin Chin and Le Bistro for dinner. All these meals were worth the cover charge. Tsar's Palace was also very good for a no cover charge restaurant. As part of the suite package, we had access to Cagney's for breakfast and lunch. We took advantage of this option almost every day. Overall, the both the food and the atmosphere at all the restaurants were excellent. Less
