Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

Capt. George
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

The Jewel was just refurbished in 2018 and is still very new looking. At 2350 capacity she is my size. The seating in the common areas was clean and comfortable. I had a ocean view with 2 persons and it was OK. Beds were new and we had enough space. Entertainment is always a mystery to me. They only play for 45 min and sometimes at really odd times. We ate mostly in the main dinning room and the ...

A Jewel this was not!

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Cruise number 14 for us. Panama Canal passage on the list of " must do ". The price seemed very reasonable, although with Norweigan the extras add up like one of those $29 airfares that actually costs $229 when you pay for all the necessary extas. We had put in a "bid" for an upgrade that works like an auction over about a week period. Day before cruise received an email stating that our bid ...

Interesting experience

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

Bucket Listed
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We arrived early into Panama City airport, and the transport started with an impromptu tour of Panama City and a pit stop for breakfast as we couldn't arrive in Colon before 11. The ride to Colon was purely functional, and we didn't view much that was photo worthy. Embarkation felt like sort of a mess in Colon, and it was a relief to finally get on the ship. My bucket list included full ...

Our bucket list cruise through the Panama Canal

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

My wife and I finally were able to complete our long awaited Panama Canal cruise which had been postponed twice due to covid. We typically cruise NCL (me - Sapphire, wife - Platinum) and love the Jewel class ships. After staying two nights in the Panama Hilton (wonderful!) on the NCL pre-cruise package we were off to meet the ship in Colon. We opted out of NCL's transportation as my wife ...

Excellent service, great itinerary

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We chose this cruise because we could do the Panama Canal in 8 days, rather than 10 or 14 days. The Jewel is a nice ship, a little dated, but the service on the ship was far better than expected. Our room was always clean. Cindy and Ronald in the Palace dining room went above and beyond to provide excellent service. The entertainment was outstanding with comedy magic and Stephanie Pope and ...

Fun and Exciting Cruise--Memories of a Lifetime. Fantastic Itinerary.

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Thanks to everyone that wrote a review of the Norwegian Jewel because we read them all along with all the other Norwegian reviews before deciding to take this cruise. This was our first cruise since covid. We had an absolutely fantastic time—it was an exciting, fast paced, well managed action-packed cruise that went to some exciting ports celebrating my birthday. Aruba, Bonaire, and Caraco ...

What a disappointment

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Panorama II

10+ Cruises • Age 20s

My husband and I expected this cruise to be a delightful way to visit Panama and Costa Rica national parks and beaches. It was not!! The ship is tired and needs a lot of rust removal.The engines ran nonstop and the sails were never raised even briefly for pictures. The crew was mostly friendly and eager to please, but the captain was totally uninterested in the trip and would not even say ...

Good quality, few guests, ever-shady practices from NCL

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

Insane-level service by bar waitresses; surprisingly good but limited entertainment (nothing going on in the day); average food, even in the pay restaurants, but no bad meals; some of the worst shore excursions I've ever been on; one of the easiest embarkations ever and the easiest debark in more than 10 cruises (I literally walked off the ship, no line, and was on the street in San Diego in ...

Disappointing, Embarrassing

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Silver Wind

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We've cruised with Silversea about a dozen times. Unfortunately, this one is at the bottom of the ranking list. We convinced another couple to join us. For three days after reporting it, they endured a fire alarm that went off several times a day and water leaking through a ceiling light fixture. I finally intervened and helped get them moved to another suite. I made it very clear Silversea ...

Review for a Caribbean - Southern Cruise on Vision of the Seas

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We had a terrific time on this Latin American cultural immersion cruise. There was Latin music to dance to every night. I don't speak Spanish, but all of the Royal Caribbean staff spoke English and we thoroughly enjoyed the Latin American influenced food. The entertainment was excellent, and we loved the acrobatic aerial show in the Centrum. The food in the main dining room was outstanding, and we ...
