I had never imagined that I would have such an awesome experience on a cruise. I think what made it so amazing overall was having my partner to share the experience with. We met so many friendly people, both staff and other people on the cruise. The staff deserves the highest praise as they were always so friendly and so helpful. The food was good in the restaurants. We didn't do any of the ...

From the ease of the check-in process to disembarking today, all went smoothly and with efficiency. I booked this cruise March 2014 and the sail became our second cruise; our first on Norwegian for us and veteran floating friends sailing with us - so we had no latitude perks to begin this voyage. The officers and crew were wonderful, visible -very approachable and always asking if everything was ...

I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. All of the crew members were very helpful. Our room steward, Eddie, was wonderful and worked around our schedule to make sure the room was taken care of. The servers in the restaurants were very attentive and professional. The only issue I had was in Teppanyaki. They gave our dessert to us late, then within a few minutes of getting it, a server told us we needed to ...

We had a wonderful time cruising to Cozumel, Belize City & Roatan last week. We experienced the perfect balance of eating, drinking, & entertainment on-board the NCL Jewel. We especially enjoyed "free-styling"! The NCL staff was so friendly & helpful. We felt like we'd made new friends. We'd see them at the restaurants, shops, casino & even the hallways & they'd greet us with big ...

Very Average Ship

This was our first cruise on Norwegian. The room was very small compared to other ships I've been on. This was not a luxury-appointed ship - very basic. The ship store was very, very small with very little in it. The entertainment was average, at best. This particular cruise had a Nickelodean theme and therefore I think it was more family-oriented. Food was average. There was more than the ...

First Time Cruiser- Great Overall Experience

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This Cruise was a celebration of my wife's battle of overcoming Cancer. We left Kansas City the night before and arrived in Houston almost two hours late due to air delays. We stayed at the LaQuinta on NASA Parkway, and basically just slept, ate breakfast and left. The taxi ride to the hotel and cruise terminal was fine, and the driver was great about telling us bits of information. Upon arrival ...

After 8 cruises, our first cruise with the Norwegian Cruise Line was on the Jewel out of Houston on April 11. Where do I begin? The first thing we noticed was how happy and friendly the employees were. One mid afternoon we were in the Garden Buffet grabbing a bite when we noticed an officer and a fairly large group of workers came out with a cake and sang Happy Birthday to a gentleman working in ...

The jewel isn't the newest, fanciest ship, but I don't care... I love it :) I felt like it was the perfect size- not too big, not too small. It was older, but it was extremely clean and well-maintained. We cruise once or twice a year but this was our first time on NCL (previously we've been on Carnival, Princess, and Royal Caribbean). We quickly became huge fans, and I even put down a deposit on ...

A great time was hadn by all. Negatives were few, terrible tea and coffee. Entertainment was best ever. Shore tours were very entertaining and enjoyable. Internet access fees are a joke. Too many money makers (selling pull tabs) at every occasion. Crew were not consistent in cashing these tickets. Cashier left a bad taste becauseofher rudeness. I have another cruise already booked and paid, but I ...
