Excellent cruise: Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by mustang6

Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The food was awesome, much better then other cruise lines. We preferred Azura dinning room over TSARS. The seafood dishes and steak dishes were much better, as well as the wait staff. On More the last night we went to Cagney's Steak house for the extra $25pp. We were blown away. The oysters and shrimp cocktail were huge! The filet mignon was to die for. You must try this one. The only complaint that we had was that shrimp cocktail was not available in the regular dinning rooms. Also, we are not big drinkers, so the $50 unlimited soda card is a deal.
We absolutely loved the Stirrup Cay trip. He went up to the pool at 7:30 to get the 1st tender tickets off the boat. You want to do that in order get a lounge chair. We also brought our own snorkel sets from home. We saved $70 in rentals!
In Nassau, we did the Sailfish sail and snorkel. Book online before your cruise and you save a couple of bucks. That was good, except the water was cold! Next time I will bring a wet suit. The staff could have been nicer they were very unfriendly. Therefore, they did not get tips.
The only negative comment I would have is our balcony room. It was very small for even just the 2 of us. For the amount of money we spent, I felt that it should have been slightly larger. Overall a 9 out of 10! Less
