We’ve done several NCL cruises..Gem, Jade and Jewel. I love the crew. They are very nice, cheerful and helpful. Favorite times include the amazing entertainment, the outer deck delicious barbecues, the fabulous experiences in the specialty restaurants and those cute, fun towel animals. I could go on and on but the crew deserves the credit. They are the best of the best at sea.

Our family had three cabins..two balconies and one interior. They were always clean and well stocked. The food was good...many great choices for even fussy eaters like two of our grandchildren. The Garden Cafe had different themes different nights and many delicious choices.

Our favorite night was at the French-specialty restaurant. There were 10 of us and we celebrated our two daughters birthdays. Everyone enjoyed their food..some had filets, some lamb, some seafood. And then the desserts... birthday cakes for both girls, fondue,cream brûlée to name a few. Wow!
