The Jewel is a nice ship - little older but nice -- but so far I love all of NCL -- -this is our 5th time to Alaska - took long time friends and some family members that have never been on a cruise. The staff was INCREDIBLE!!!! Everyone on that ship was incredible !!! The food was ok -- wasn't the best but wasn't the worse -- I have never had really bad food on any cruise I have taken. The Entertainment was ok as well -- I felt that could improve at the Stardust shows for sure. All the game shows were just as awesome as they always are. Enjoyed ourselves. Loved Alaska yet again! We went to Cagneys -- we tried to do Teppenyaki but it was just too booked up for the week - we looooove that restaurant. Cagneys was awesome -- but it has changed over the years with the pricing - it's now it's pay as you go (what you eat - has a price for each menu item) instead of a flat fee to eat - wish that would not have changed - but as usual it was delicious.
I can't remember the cabin # but we were on deck 9 --- it was just fine - never had any issues in it at all.
We have been on this excursion a few years ago -- unfortunately we could not reach the Glacier this time due to so much ice - which was soooo unusual for July and even the Captain of the tour said the same thing - he was not sure if something had happened within a few days for so much ice to be out in the water - so we just did more of a siteseeing tour -- saw lots of whales and got close and personal to humpbacks which was really cool. But this exclusion is a must and the glacier is awesome .View All undefined undefined Reviews
