  3. Norwegian Jewel
My wife and I chose this cruise firstly because of the itinerary. We had always wanted to visit Alaska, and with Russia and Japan as well, we booked this cruise. Except for the 6 days at sea from Alaska to Russia, we were happy with this cruise. It was more than we expected and this was our first cruise with Norwegian, we were happy with the ship and the staff. The shows were all very good and a couple of them were excellent. The Cirque Bijou was a highlight show plus a couple of others that were really great and professional. The service at the dining rooms was very good, and the only complaint we had was with the quality of the beef in the dining rooms. We did have one dinner in the Le Bistro and that was the best meal we had eaten for a very long time. We both had the filet steak which was done to absolute perfection.

Lovely ship with nice crew and excellent shows

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window
Cabin OB 5047
The cabin was clean and bright. The washroom is a bit small but adequate. The only complaint I have is with the third bed in the cabin. We had a queen bed setup and had trouble getting in and out of the bed because of the third bed attached. to the wall on one side.The other small complaint is that is was difficult looking out the picture window as it was very marked from the weather.
