We enjoyed our time on the Jewel. We enjoyed the freedom of Norwegian's freestyle dining. We mostly ate lunches and breakfasts in the Garden Cafe, and dinners in Tsar's Palace. The food was consistently high-quality and diverse; as a fan of Asian food, I especially appreciated the Cafe's rotation of Asian dishes. We thought about trying Azura, but the decor in there looked lackluster compared to Tsar's. We did have a special anniversary dinner in Moderno, but were somewhat disappointed by the service. I had to order wine four times from four different servers before the wine actually showed up.
When we cruise, we like to relax and read and play card games, and the Jewel is a comfortable place to do that. We also like to take in some music in the evenings, but were somewhat disappointed by the entertainment selection on the boat. Musical tributes included Elton John, Elvis Presley, The Carpenters, Dolly Parton, James Taylor... y'know, I'm 35, and there *have* been a few good musical acts that have come about since I was born! The most impressive entertainment was the Russian acrobatic team featured on the main stage, who provided two breathtaking shows.
