Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by Joshgrobanfan

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Traveling with a disabled person, was concerned that it would be a nightmare but was very happy with the attention given that made sure our trip was comfortable. Every issue and concern was resolved immediately. Embarkation and disembarkation was easy. Sydney was an absolutely beautiful pier. The food and service at Cagneys was delightful. Selection of food was varied and very good in all other restaurants. Felt the taste of the food of the Chinese restaurant Chin Chin did not live up to my exceptional experience in the Norwegian Gem. Not sure if they modify the food taste and spices based on where in the world is sailing from. The tours were all good to excellent. My cabin Stewart was one on the best I ever had and I have been on dozens of cruises. The disability officer on board was exceptional. We were lucky and had exceptionally smooth voyage with minimal rough seas. The entertainment was varied and unquie. The cirque Bijou was mesmerizing and worth the trip. One on the better shows I have seen. The other shows were good as well. Had great lounge singers. Fell in love with Carrie who played guitar and sang songs in some of the lounges. Had small glitches in the 13 days aboard but every one was resolved to my satisfaction. Pleased with the customer service orientation.

Cabin Review

Cabin BB 10638

Reasonable balcony for size and layout and price. Could use more shelf space. But I say that on every cruise. LOL.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Beautiful view but don’t bother getting off the ship unless you are a walker. View this as visiting a really backwoods experience.

City Tour

Perfect Level 1 tour for someone with limited mobility which is what we’re looking for.
