Ship information

Norwegian Jewel April, 23 Mexican Riviera

Activities

We had the best time went to many shows while they are not Broadway they were a close second for being on ship

we loved the late night games

The CD group were so great at bringing out the best in people

Service

No problem with any service on board, while I have to see if you are a tipper they might bring that drink a little sooner

Port & shore excursions

we did not do any excursions just wandered

Getting off the boat is on the 4 th deck so a breeze to disembark

Travel to embarkation port

whole other issue airline travel has gone down hill

Cabin

I picked a 4th deck cabin #4554

and it was great, the ship is old and so it shows wear and tear

but this is ok... feels like home ;)

Dining

we loved Modernos, and Cagneys

we ate in all the dining areas and we happy with all

Prime rib night in the buffet was the best

Entertainment

Fantastic

Disembarkation

off the boat in 45 minutes
