  3. Norwegian Jewel
We cruise on the Norwegian Jewel January 17th - January 24th, visiting Cozumel, Belize and Roatan. We are experienced cruisers; this was our 10th cruise, but our first on Norwegian, in the past we've cruised with Carnival and Princess. This cruise blew our expectations away, probably one of the best cruises we've ever had. The crew was FANTASTIC, so friendly and welcoming, engaging with the passengers, they made us feel like part of the party. The excitement was infectious. The entertainment was also top-notch; especially David Naster the comedian, he was so funny at many times we couldn't breathe we were laughing so hard. The food in the main dining rooms was fantastic, our favorite was Tsar's Palace. We tried the Tepanaki and the Brazilian restaurants and they were also great. There were so many things to do we found ourselves running from one activitiy to another. We cruised with our 10 year old and also our parents. Great for a family trip. Our favorite stops were Cozumel and Roatan - do the monkey encounter there, well worth the money.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Porthole Window
Cabin OF 4550
Great room, very spacious. Being on the 4th floor mid-ship turned out to be great; we were close to everything especially getting on and off the ship. Very smooth as well, hardly felt the ship move.
