  3. Norwegian Jewel
We just returned on December 13 from a week cruise on NCL Jewel. We had a fantastic time. We truly enjoyed the ship. We opted for an ocean view (have done a veranda on four other cruises), and that was probably the only thing we would change. We did miss having our own veranda to relax on and enjoy the views. We also bought the Ultimate Dining package as well as the drink package and that was all an added bonus. We only went to two shows in the theater, and more enjoyed other onboard entertainment in the Atrium area. We did love the Beatles Tribute in the Spinnaker Lounge. Everyone in the room was signing along. We were also delighted with the Christmas Caroling on that Friday evening, and again everyone joined in the singing. Our waiter in Tzar's main dining room was fantastic. His name was Samir, from India. Our stateroom was kept clean and serviced by a gentleman named Clement, who did a fantastic job. The NCL staff were all friendly and most helpful. We did have rough seas on the last day, but it did not keep us from enjoying the amenities of the ship, except for the pool. Embarkation and disembarking were all very smooth. All in all, a wonderful memorable trip.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Picture Window
Cabin OC 8624
We did not have a sofa in the Oceanview room, which was a bit disappointing. Otherwise, all was fine.
