The Norwegian Jewel has a great crew that works hard to meet the cruisers needs. The service and food for our Ultimate Dinning Package was amazing. The varied entertainment was interesting and added to an outstanding cruise experience. The ports were much more more interesting and less commercialized and added to the adventure and my excitement about the vacation. The stops in El Salvador and Honduras were enlightening and genuinely fun because of the low keyed atmosphere and nature of the port. The Captain kept us on an early morning schedule so we could tour during the cooler part of the day and enjoy sunrise before starting each amazing day. Our cabin was clean and well maintained with excellent service from our steward. The embarkation was very smooth but there was some problems with the debarkation that was not likely within the control of the cruise line. I highly recommend the Panama Canal experience on the Norwegian Jewel.
