Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by jennycap
- Sail Date: March 2012
- Destination: Bahamas
- Cabin Type: Family Balcony
Would suggest to anyone THINKING about traveling with a baby younger than 2 1/2: WAIT - it is not worth it - they cannot "do" anything and you are dealing with bottles, diapers, etc. You could not have paid me to take my daughter any younger..she was 2 1/2 and had a great time - they gave us a crib and she slept like a champ, ate everything and loved the pools, hot tub, etc.
ONE SUGGESTION for Norwegian - give us a place to just go and hang out with the kids - if our 2 1/2 yr old did not want to go to the Kids Club - then what??!? We had nowhere to JUST GO - I wish there was like a FAMILY ROOM, with tvs, couches, games, (not supervised, snacks, etc just somewhere to go and chill out...
Loved the Norwegian crew - loved our first cruise experience and will definitely do it again!!

Great Stirrup CayLOVED this day - I know they are doing construction but we were on the first tender over - got great chairs byt the water's edge and had a wonderful day. DO NOT RENT snorkel equipment not worth it - you have so many other things to do and we dropped $80 (my husband and daughter's equipment and water slide passes) Just buy the water slide passes - she was on it all day! GREAT GREAT DAY on GREAT STIRRUP CAY!!View All 827 Great Stirrup Cay Cruise Port Reviews

Beach Breakliked the excursion - a little overpriced for the encounter - you were in a pool in a line and the dolphin came up to you for a photo op. We could not do the swim one as our youngest was only 2 but I would suggest spending the extra money and doing the full swim with the dolphins...View All 145 Beach Break Reviews
