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.
Clean and well maintained had a good bathroom with a glass door shower.
Embarkation was slow and difficult, New Zealand biggest city, spent the night there before cruise.
Great town to look around
Went for a local train trip for and hour turn
Beautiful town very scenic. Good shopping.
enjoyed this town.
Had a look around and a bus ride from the port to the town.
Fantastic experience the sip managed to get in and we had a great look around.
