We had a wonderful cruise on the Norwegian Jewel - especially considering the lousy time we had on HAL in January.

The Jewel sparkled! I love how they paint their ships, very colourful and welcoming, as were the staff. The food was good, but not exceptional. Our cabin was nice and we enjoyed many afternoons on our balcony with a glass of wine. The ship was clean and well organized, however we were not impressed with how people save lounge chairs by the pool and no one does anything about that. SO many times, chairs were saved and no one would be there for hours. One woman had 2 chairs saved in the sun by the pool and 2 in the shade. Her husband never came, so she had 4 lounge chairs saved all day and only eve occupied 1. People...that is SO rude - but the cruise staff should do as they say they will and clear the chairs if no one shows up for over a hour. Overall the staff were excellent, attentive and very nice. We loved sitting outside at the back of the ship for our meals and didn't visit the main dining rooms very often for that reason. We loved listinging to Angel play his guitar and sing out on the back deck each evening - he was an excellent entertainer. Disembarkation was fast, easy and well organized. Best yet!

Overall it was a very pleasant cruise...we'd definitly sail with NCL again!
