This was our first Norwegian cruise and I must say it was great! From the beginning to the end it was nothing short of wonderful!

We have been celebrating our 25th Anniv. all year long since April of 2013. We have been on 6 cruises during this time......two Disney and 4 Carnival.....and we agree that our cruise on the Norwegian Jewel was by far in a category of its own.....which in our opinion is Great!

The food was sooooo delicious! Mr. Messiah and his crew do a fantastic job! The service was very good and the wait time was just like any other restaurant that you order food from with table service. The buffets were the best ....no complaints here! The crew members there were all willing to please you in anyway to make you satisfied.

The captain would walk around and talk with the guests and take pictures it made us feel special. That's probably why the crew members were always so friendly and helpful because their boss was always being the example. Everyone was so helpful in so many ways it would take a long list to describe.

Thank you Romeo for making us feel special on our first cruise with Norwegian. And inviting us to the captains party!!!!! He is the guy to see if you are wanting to get $100.00 on board credit if you are planning to take a 6 or more night cruise within the next four years, you can put $250.00 down and receive the $100.00 on board credit to spent on your present cruise. I thought this was fantastic because we plan on taking another Norwegian Cruise before the four years is up. Another great incentive from Norwegian....Thank You ...Thank you!!!

The room steward was great! He always made sure I had an extra towel and ice in the bucket and our room was always so clean. The whole ship was clean, we didn't see a rust stain of any kind anywhere on the ship. The whole place is spotless!!!!

The port of calls were amazing .....and the excursion prices where reasonable...we even got to the ports earlier then the time we were supposed to and we got to disembark early and easy...that was wonderful!!!!

In Cozumel we went to Passion Island all inclusive for $70.00 each includes boat ride to and from port, loved it beautiful beach great food and drinks!!!!

In Belize.we went to Bacab Jungle Park Pool and lunch....$54.99 each .....it was a wonderful fun day there in the sun !!

Roatan was great......we booked our beach excursion through Island Marketing Ltd....West Bay Beach...Banarama Beach....$66.00 for two of us, includes transportation to and from port, a lounge chair , a drink and entrance fee, ask for Ms. Karen she is a great tour guide and will help you get set up on beach.....this beach is sooooooo beautiful!!!!!! crystal clear water and the sand is so smooth under your feet in water....No Rocks or Shells!!!!

In Costa Maya......they have a beautiful huge swimming pool to use free with swim up bar to buy drinks .......but we had booked an excursion to Tequila Beach, $64.00 for two of us, includes all drinks and food and lounge chair, umbrella but the cab was $3.00 a piece for each way.......the water was clear but there was rocks and shells at bottom........Not my favorite! Next time we will stay at port and enjoy the pool for Free!

I would recommend this cruise to anyone who needs a break from the real world and take a trip into paradise for the best vacation you need to have! Try this cruise and you will not regret it and if you do you are probably hard to please to begin with!

Cabin Review

This cabin was perfect for us. We had a lot of storage for clothes, etc. The bed was sooooo comfortable!!!!!! The whole room was clean and spotless. The bathroom was a good size and the shower had slider doors...a plus!!!!....The blow dryer was the best we have ever had aboard a ship.....There was a flat screen TV and they played up to date movies....the room steward was fantastic ...always had ice in bucket and extra towels when needed...and the towel animals were great!!!!!
