  3. Norwegian Jewel
Our cabins were kept spotless and we always enjoyed the placement of our kids stuffed animals. Whenever we had a question, our stuffed animal wrangler/room steward, was more than willing to stop what he was doing to explain things to us. This was our first cruise to ever take. We had our 5.5 year old & 7 month old. Our oldest loved splash academy and our youngest enjoyed being able to drum his hands on any surface he could touch. The food was not our favorite though. It didn’t leave a lot of options some days. It seems like they mainly focused on food from the Asian or Indian cultures. We are a lot of cheeseburgers. Also, the fancier restaurants didn’t have very good descriptions for the types of meals. It we always knew that if we didn’t like a meal there, we could go to the garden cafe to get a burger. I was really hoping they would have some simpler desserts. A lot of them had jellies or “goo” on them, especially the cakes. My oldest d that they had chocolate chip cookies or peanut butter cookies. Overall, we did enjoy our trip and would love to take another in the future with our boys. We would just hope that the food options improve.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IB 9557
Mohammad did a wonderful job of keeping our room spotless. I swear every time we threw something away and left the room, when we came back the trash would be empty. He also kept my boys entertained with the towel animals and the placement of their stuffed animals
