  3. Norwegian Jewel
We live just a 20 minute drive from the los angeles pier and it was a convenient itinerary for us to book this one week cruise. We have sailed on the norwegian jade from houston to barcelona and the cruise critic group made that cruise the most fun all week long with gatherings and gaming with lcr dice games. We did have the beverage and dining package for this cruise. This cruise critic group on the jewel barely said hello as i entered the room a bit late so i sat for a while an listened to other conversations then left the room. We were invited to the silver level reception and were served stale water crackers and a square of cheese on a pick while we listened to the sales pitch from the staff after a brief introduction of the officers. The cabins were comfortable and room stewards were courteous. The daily activities during the sea days were quite uninteresting and elementary. At least a destination or educational lecture could have been offered during the sea days. We do not gamble so the casino is not an attraction for us. Another reviewer commented on azamara cruise line, we are very fond of the azamara cruise onboard service, destination lectures and personal amenities, especially the gratis bottles of water and towels, when one wants to go ashore or for a tour. This cruise line also offers courtesy roundtrip bus or shuttle service into the towns and cities all during the port calls. Additionally all house wine bar drinks and soft drinks are at no charge to passengers. You get what you pay for and azamara shines!!

In Summary - The Cruise was just OK -

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MX
The Cabin was comfortable and well appointed. The morning of the first day at sea, the sink faucet water was coming out grey/black and grainy. We called housekeeping and they did something to drain it out of the faucet. I asked our steward for us to be furnished with some bottled water for the day. They said I would have to pay for it or call housekeeping for a pitcher of water. I used the Ice Bucket water.

We were able to get good TV Coverage of the main Networks for News and Sports or went to the Bars for a Larger TV Viewing.
