Background information

This was my first cruise and spent hours reading and agonizing my choice

I booked then found web site after web site reviews.

I will say one thing don't go on a review alone as you can be on the same ship as another and have a completely different time

Ship information

Norwegian Jewel April, 23 Mexican Riviera


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


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


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 ;)


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




off the boat in 45 minutes


I loved my firth cruise and can't wait to go again my husband not so much the movement rocked him but sea band next time might help :)

Met wonderful and happy cruisers
