Chose this cruise because San Pedro is within easy driving distance so don't have a needless flight. Also, the UBP (beverage package) was a perk, probably what sealed the deal. Otherwise we could have taken another line or Holland American out of San Diego like we did last year.
Loved the Jewel. Not too big or crowded. Easy on and easy off. User friendly.
Not the best food in history but plenty of choices (Hey, this is NCL, not Oceana).
