This is our server in the formal dining room, she was awesome.

This was our third cruise, We have been choosing different cruise lines to compare whiich is best for us. The Royal Carib and Princess were first. We rated this vacation as 5/5. We liked the ship, the food, the people, the room, the bathroom, the balcony, and the entertainment. The buffet was always delicious and the formal dinners were fantastic. No reservations were ever needed. We boarded in Long Beach and this process was very efficient. We enjoy ships that cater to less than 2300 guests. It is easier to get around the mid size ships. The sea and weather were all perfect. We would do this trip again. We highly recommend the NCL Jewel.

1- Mediterranean summer 2015 on the Royal Carib Vision of the Seas- 12 days

2- Vancouver Reposition 2016 on the Princess Ruby - 5 days

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BB

The bed was very comfortable, the balcony is good sized, the bathroom is the best when compared to our previous ships. The shower is big enough for 2 people. We were served chocolates every night for the bed turn down.

Port Reviews

Los Angeles

Embarkation in Long Beach was enjoyable and efficient.

Puerto Vallarta

We walked off the ship and explored on our own. Lots of walking and a fast taxi ride.

Mazatlan

We walked off the ship and walked the city, found a great friendly driver in a white golf cart to drive us in a city tour, he was awesome!

Cabo San Lucas

We took a tender to the boat marina and walked all day. Took my first ride in a bike rickshaw for fun.
