The Cabin was comfortable and well appointed. The morning of the first day at sea, the sink faucet water was coming out grey/black and grainy. We called housekeeping and they did something to drain it out of the faucet. I asked our steward for us to be furnished with some bottled water for the day. They said I would have to pay for it or call housekeeping for a pitcher of water. I used the Ice Bucket water. We were able to get good TV Coverage of the main Networks for News and Sports or went to the Bars for a Larger TV Viewing.

Great crew, pretty poor food By: thecatservant
Barely room for 3 people, but it was adequate. The beds were certainly not the most comfortable I've ever slept on. But the room was kept very clean and our steward was wonderful!

Not on the boat to watch TV, but the TV programs were limited. Older cabins, very very tired. It felt like an old casino in most of the public spaces.

Cabin 11042
Feb 2016
Our cabin was in a perfect mid-ship location on the 11th deck. There is plenty of room to put away your things. The balcony has two chairs and a small table. Unfortunately, people smoke on their balconies and that was a real disadvantage for us.

Cabin 11032

Nice, clean and good sized but too noisy for our liking. The pool deck on deck 12 is host to loud music and late parties, and I know that is to be expected. The ping pong table right above did not help. If you want a good night sleep you should choose a different room.

Cabin 11042
Oct 2015
We stayed in room 11042 (mini-suite), on the Starboard side of the ship. The staff split the bed for us after we arrived. This room was a lifesaver. The Garden Café on Deck 13 was often too busy to even get a table at, and we ate at least three meals in the stateroom, using the desk, coffee table, and sofa to accommodate food trays. Our stateroom attendant was very friendly, accommodating, but we always felt that our room was being taken care of last. I’m not sure if NCL gives priority to previous guests, if there’s a “tip culture” we’re not aware of that happens on the first day, or exactly why we were always the last served—and it could be as simple as a sick colleague that he was filling in for—but it was strange. He did do an excellent job.

Large inside area and balcony, bathroom larger than most and looked recently remodeled, lots of closet and storage, very comfortable bedding, CLEAN room, excellent sound-proofing--never hear noise from rooms next door or in the hall.

Cabin 11128
May 2015
We opted for a mini suite guarantee, and I'll admit I was not thrilled we were assigned this cabin at the aft of the ship, as I am very prone to motion sickness. However, the room was awesome. Quiet location. I never once experienced motion sickness. Only once during the entire cruise did I hear anything from the buffet above, and that was around 5 pm one evening. It sounded like they were vacuuming and moving a few chairs around upstairs. It was intrusive and it only lasted a couple minutes. The hubby loved the easy access to the buffet!

The cabin was actually a strong point.

Just Misses By: leisure cruzer
Surprise, a cabin with a bathroom that is not designed to encourage multi-tasking (using all three fixtures at the same time) although getting into the bathtub/shower does require a bit of a high step. The spaciousness also applies to the rest of the cabin and to the balcony that has a modest extension due to location. Unlike most cabins, you can actually spread out here (if there are only two of you). Location is a bit out of the way which is both a plus and a minus. The location means there is not as much hallway noise and getting to the buffet and Tsar's Palace dining room was easy but, the theater and other venues required a bit of a walk (that can also be seen as a positive in that you are exercising away the pounds from the buffet and main restaurant.). Taken on a whole, this is not a bad option.

Cabin 11510
Mar 2015
Bathroom was great. Toilet had a sliding door to close off from the bathroom area, good storage at the sink area, and a tub/shower with a trifold sliding glass door. Plenty of towels (and good towels!) there and replenished continuously through the week. Loads of storage and a big closet with plenty of hangars.suitcases fit under the bed or in the closet to keep out of the way. Bed was ok-a little too soft for my taste. Requested the bed to be split, and was done later that day. Heavy curtain and then a couch/desk area with more starage. The cabinet above the desk included a good sized safe. Flat screen TV on the shelf swiveled for couch and bed viewing. Some great movies were shown over the coursse of the week. Provided a good diversion when needing some rest time. Good size balcony with 3 chairs. We noticed a plastic cup half full with water and cigarette butts on the balcony left over from the previous cruise.Mentioned it to the steward and it was removed immediately.We were below the spa (11510) and was so quiet. Never heard anything, from any direction.

Cabin 11604
Feb 2015
We had more than enough room for the 2 of us. The closet was mostly empty except for a few of my dresses. You could easily fit 4 people and their belongings. The bathroom was handy with the separate sliding door for the toilet. 11604 is almost centrally located. Once you figure out which elevator you need to go to, it's just a few more steps from aft than forward. The ship did rock quite a bit and the neighbor's door kept opening and shutting but not latching with every motion.

The room was next to the stairs which concerned us, but it wasn't as issue at all. The walls are very think, we could hear normal conversation next door.

I would choose this cabin again if I went on the Jewel again. It is the last mini suite before the aft cabins so the balcony was bigger than any of the other mini suite balconies. Probably the cabin on the other side is the same. We were port side. Would be great to have for a warm weather cruise. Liked the larger bathroom even though for seniors it was an ordeal getting in and out of the tub to shower (the sides are very high). The cabin was one of the largest we've had on any of our cruises.

Deck 11, room 11090. Great room, balcony. Bed for me was so comfy, kids couch that opened to bed, very hard, but they never complained? There is also a thick, curtain you can pull to separate the rooms, it's great. Mimi suite is perfect for couple or family of 4. Wendell our steward was beyond exceptional! He was so happy and always went out of his way for us.

We had a mini-suite. The room was done in cherry wood. Nice closet/drawer space. Bathroom was spacious, Balcony was great,Television looked loke it was from the 1970's. They need a dvd player in the room, as the T.V. channels are not many. We used our laptop for dvd viewing. All other cruise lines have dvd players in the mini-suites. Fridge in room was great. Cabin was made up twice per day. Very quiet area except for the bed shook like a small earthquake at around 5:00 a,m every morning for a few hours. It would shake every 1 to 2 minutes for about 3 seconds at a time.
