  3. Norwegian Jewel
We originally choose Norwegian because it was less expensive. The cruise was fantastic. It was like a floating luxury hotel. The food was fabulous and available almost 24/7. We ate in the Garden Cafe most of the time. The service was superb and the selection was amazing. We enjoyed the great shows in the Stardust Theater and other games,etc. throughout the ship. There were gymnasts that could outperform any other gymnast. The comedians were fun. The musicians were excellent. You could stay busy or just relax or a combination that suits your style. The scenery was superb. The staff on the ship were very friendly and always willing to assist. We have absolutely no complaints about our cruise with Norwegian. Prior to the cruise my husband was hesitant about a cruise as he thought he would not find activities he enjoyed. Now he is already talking about taking another cruise. Our adult children, their spouses and our 2 grandchildren were also on the cruise. Splash Academy was enjoyed by the grandchildren and gave the adults time to enjoy activities that would not be interesting for children. Splash Academy put on a show the last day with the children as the performers. This showed how well they worked with the children. All the children were prepared for their parts and were special to watch.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BD 8022
The cabin was small but quite adequate. Our Stateroom Steward was friendly and did a great job. We enjoyed the quite balcony where we could enjoy the view without a crowd.
