Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by patzlotnik
- Sail Date: September 2018
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
We went to work out at the Fitness Center four times during our cruise. The equipment was only fair. The treadmills were average. The cross trainers were not constructed to be able to use the arm bars and had a poor design. Several pieces of the equipment were out of order. There was no interaction with the staff in the fitness center. The view from the fitness center was wonderful and there were always plenty of clean towels.
Loved shopping on board at the duty free shop. Staff was helpful and made us feel valued.
We enjoyed nightly entertainment in Stardust Theater. Performances were excellent and wait staff was superb. Fun to enjoy the show and have a drink at the same time. Loved the variety of shows.
Getting on the ship to embark was long and tiring after a full day of travel. There was a fair amount of disorganization about directions, lines and where to go. Needs to be more organized and much speedier.
Shore excursions were good except for one which was cancelled the week before we left on the cruise. It was the Rain Forest Island Adventure and we were disappointed as that was the one we were looking forward to the most. Refund was prompt at least.

Duck TourDuck Tour was fun and gave you an interesting tour of the city and port area. Kaitlyn was a great guide and Bruce was a fun captain. We felt safe and explored the town both on land and sea.View All 113 Duck Tour Reviews
