Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Inside

First time on Jewel, this was cruise 60 for me. Been to New Zealand many times. Embarkation and disembarkation was long and delayed due to port authorities and health checks for the Coronavirus. Not fault of Norwegian, There was an outbreak of gastro which made the bistro and main dining room difficult as everything was handled and served by staff. Everything was disinfected over and over.

The condition of the Ship was fantastic, well maintained and no issues as everything worked and the cabin was comfortable.

The crew were fantastic and very much enjoyed their contact, friendly and helpful.

Cabin Review


Clean and well maintained had a good bathroom with a glass door shower.
