We just got off of the Norwegian Jewel two days ago.This was the first cruise for my wife and I. Before we headed out, we wondered how it would compare to the land-based vacations we have taken in the past...Here is what we thought:

About us:

To give you a little perspective, we are a couple in our early to mid 40s. We have three children, but none of them accompanied us on this cruise (for the first time in 20 years). We have vacationed in about every way possible on land...everything from rustic cabins in the woods, road trips to Disney (from Illinois) on a budget, to the Ritz Carlton in Jamaica..and everything in between.

Cabin Review

Penthouse with Large Balcony

Cabin SF

The suite was very clean and quiet (Aft of ship). With little to no foot traffic or outside noise. The bed is COMFORTABLE!! It would have been nice to have some more square footage, but it was ample for two of us. We could have had three people in the cabin, but it would have been a little tight.
