  3. Norwegian Jewel
Cruise special was offered in the Sunday paper offering flights from Sydney to Singapore, over night accommodation and cruise. Norwegian cruise line also offered a choice of drinks package, fine dining, wifi or fine dining for free. Cruises that are value for money are important for us as we are retired. The Norwegian Jewel was scheduled to be fully refurbished in Singapore the two weeks prior to our sailing date. This included stripping out all areas of the ship. From some of the photos that staff showed us this was a huge task but this resulted in all the bars, dining and all public area were completely new including furniture. Some work was done in cabins but as we have not travelled on this ship before we did not know the extent of the work. One addition we did like was the addition of USB ports in each cabin. The other area of the cabin we liked was the full size shower cubicle. As Australians we had been to most ports on this cruise but Komodo Island was a very interesting port. We would be happy to travel on this ship again.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Oceanview Picture Window
Cabin OB 5106
Cabin is towards the rear of the ship and there was some engine noise although it did not disturb our sleep. Bathroom area one of the best of ships we have travelled.
Deck 5 Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins
