You've read the mixed reviews good and bad so here's mine. Whatever issues the Jade had, yes they were admittedly real according to the staff, those issues are long gone. This is a great cruise, well done by a hard working crew. Do ... Read more

The Sky is a good short trip for anyone. Our embarkation port was Miami. Embarkation was short and sweet. When we boarded we were able to leave our carry on luggage in a safe place with an attendant while we ate lunch. The food ... Read more

My wife and I just recently returned from a Panama cruise that started in Miami and ended in LA on the Jewel. We where both pleasantly surprised at how well the ship has been maintained. The exterior white surfaces show little signs of ... Read more

The Norwegian Jewel is a wonderful ship. Lots of great meeting places including the Martini bar, the Fizz lounge and the Atrium Java bar. The entertainment was excellent especially loved the show band and Randon. I did not enjoy the Garden ... Read more

This is the second time that we have had aggravation before we started the cruise. We feel that NCL cheated us because of their pricing policy. Even though we are “gold” Latitude members, it means absolutely nothing. NCL should ... Read more

Being a cruise addict for many years I looked forward to trying this 'highly acclaimed' ship. The reality was somewhat different. Embarkation was smooth and efficient, but as the ship filled up the crush of people became oppressive. Poor ... Read more

The food and the entertainment were the best! The Norwegian in house band was the best we have seen. Even the lunch BBQ around the pool was very good. On the negative, people were saving chairs and sun beds with towels, so there was no ... Read more

We boarded the spirit on 2-6-16 for a 3 week vacation. We had originally been on the Spirit in 2010 in an inside cabin which was very very small, so this time we booked a family balcony. Our first week (11008) was booked after we had ... Read more

Ship is big but disarray in their framework and format. The smell of cigarette smoke is everywhere and NCL did not bother checking this out. Unlike the smaller ship, their shows are to be booked in advance which defeats the purpose of a ... Read more
