Loved the Norwegian Jewel!

This was our first cruise and we had a blast. Too many kids for us due to Spring break, but we found our quiet places. The food was excellent, the staff was attentive, and the shows were amazing. All in all, ...

Liked Carnival better

First-time cruiser

A great time

Choose this cruise for the ports of call. Houston was not the best port and I believe they are no longer going to use it. We came in early due to the weather. Embarkation went smoothly as did disembarkation. ...

We got a brochure that had an excellent price and a time frame we liked. We also liked that we could fly to Houston non-stop. The tips were paid by Carnival so that was another selling point for us. We also have ...
