Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by phleb21
- Sail Date: February 2012
- Destination: Bahamas
- Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony
Overall, Wonderful cruise. Lots of things to do. NCL's private island was very nice. We got thier early. One of the first 3 tenders to the island. Lots of construction. Shows were excellent!! Get there a little early for the best seats. We were a little disappointed in the White Hot Party. Started out OK with the music selection, then went to the "new wave" type of music. Not really my style. Angeltini drink was good.
I would sail with NCL again. Jewel was very clean. I might pack lighter and carry my own bags off the ship. Nice to be able to decide when YOU want to get off the ship. You do have to be out of your cabin by 9am.

Great Stirrup CayThier Island was beatiful. White sand beaches. Staff from ship on the island. No charge to go. Get up early for a tender ticket, chairs go fast. Water was perfect. Could not get any food until about 11am. We were there from 9:15. Also they didn't have any ice tea available. We did enjoy the day. BRING SUNBLOCK.. I used SPF 50 and still burned. Loved the island and would do it again.View All 827 Great Stirrup Cay Cruise Port Reviews

Beach BreakWe had originally decided to do the Atlantis beach tour. Changed our minds on the ship and thought just go and see what it was like. Got a taxi from the port to Atlantis Hotel. $4.00 US dollars per person. The only thing you can do is walk around the casino and some of the shops. "If you want to see the property at all. (even just walking around it will cost you $40.00 per person) Spent a couple of hours there and went back to the ship.View All 145 Beach Break Reviews
