Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by davies

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2016
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Inside

We flew into Miami and had no trouble getting through passport control not like last time. We then had a night in an airport hotel and the next morning had transfers to the port. It took about an hour to get on the ship and our cabin was ready deck 5 and an inside, the cabin was small but fine for our needs.We then had 2 days at sea before arriving at Cartagena but not long in port so we got a taxi to the walled city and found it interesting then 2 more days at sea On the sea days we had no trouble getting beds and we ate in the buffet and found it hard to get a seat some days.All the staff were friendly and helpful and kept the tables clean.They gave out fruit on sticks most days and on the day we went through the Panama Canal they gave out ice lollies a nice idea.We found the food in the main restaurants were not always hot but not a bad selection of food.The entertainment was very good with a good choice.Our other ports were Puntarenas Cortino Puerto Quetzal Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas In cabo we had to be back on board at 1 30 pm would have liked longer in this port.All told a good cruise with friendly staff

Cabin IF 5549

Small but fine for our needs

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Puerto Quetzal (Antigua)

Just walk round the port you need to do ship tours as not available at the port

Cabo San Lucas

Not long in this port we walked to the town nor far away seemed to be lots of boat trips available.
