We had a wonderful time cruising to Cozumel, Belize City & Roatan last week. We experienced the perfect balance of eating, drinking, & entertainment on-board the NCL Jewel. We especially enjoyed "free-styling"! The NCL staff was so friendly & helpful. We felt like we'd made new friends. We'd see them at the restaurants, shops, casino & even the hallways & they'd greet us with big smiles/hellos & some would even be singing! The entertainment was outstanding. We made it to several nightly events in the theatre & at the bars...some took us back in time to "our good ole days" of soul music & a tribute to The Beatles!!! We've been on numerous cruises & felt this one was definitely THE BEST!!! We hope to be back next year!!! Thank you for a wonderful "week at sea"!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Belize City
    We were tendered into Belize City & again, went into the various shops & looked around. We didn't plan an excursion at Belize but next time we definitely will. We'd love to see more of the area on an organized excursion through NCL.

  • Cozumel
    We walked around the shops & went to Senor Frogs for lunch. We hadn't planned an excursion there but will next time. We'd enjoy going to a white sandy beach next time.

  • Glass Bottom Boat
    We enjoyed this excursion very much. It was far better than we expected...it's not really a "glass-bottom" but windows on the side, which made it easy to sit & look out at the fish, vegetation, etc. A marine biologist narrated throughout as to what we were seeing, explained vegetation life & the effect from hurricanes on ocean life & answered any/all questions. We would definitely do this excursion again.
    Our guide on the bus was friendly, kind & knowledgeable about Roatan too & was able to answer many questions we all had!
