  3. Norwegian Jewel
This is the third review i've been asked to do for this cruise which we booked as a 40 nighter but the cruise was back to back to back so this review is for the first 18 days Sydney to Singapore which was poor. The cruises improved over time so the Singapore to Hong Long leg was better and the Hong Kong to Yokohama better still. This first part of the cruise was ruined by poor port choices, inept tendering, lack of thought through transport links, poor teamwork between NCL functions on board, an incompetent hotel director and underperforming shore excursions team. The Jewel is a good ship with nice facilities in need of a refurb. Our cabin was good, most of the crew we engaged with excellent, dining was good in the main, entertainment adequate at times, good or better on occasion. Quizzes were good. Most of the entertainment staff were engaging.

First part of the 40 nighter was poor!
