I wanted to see the Panama Canal and surrounding countries. This was my retirement present. This was a great price, and the idea of a 14 day cruise sounded wonderful. It did not disappoint. Getting to see the panama Canal was absolutely awesome, plus we got visit Columbia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas. It was so amazing. The staff was beyond exceptional and service ...

SImply a great cruise - The ship was fantastic, the crew incredibly attentive and polite, the food delicious, and the entertainment top notch. Loved all restaurants except Cagney's atmosphere did not do the food, or the other Cagney's on other NCL ships credit (we were seated by the kitchen, it was loud and not intimate at all). We loved Tsars main dining (the best comp dining we have had on a ...

We had an amazing experience. The staff were incredible. Never saw a grumpy face. Every day on board we were made to feel very special. The specialty restaurants provide a quality meal. I am 74 and the just had the best Lamp Chops at Moderno's that I have had in my entire life. 14 days sounds like a long time, but with all of the activities and ports of call, it was never boring. The entertainment ...

I have wanted to sail the full Panama Canal cruise for years. Now that we are retired, my husband and I could do it! We flew to Miami two days before departure, so we could have some fun in Miami. We cruised the Bay of Biscayne-a great time-and got to see all of the boats and yachts in the harbor for the Presidents' Day holiday weekend. We got to the port early for embarkation, but were held up ...

We chose this cruise because it was Her turn to choose! It has been on Rachel's bucket list for awhile now. Mine too, a win win I call it! This was our first time on Norwegian and It was not a disappointment. I enjoyed the choice of food in the garden cafe, specialty restaurants, and the other dining options as well. Our cabin was # 4573 inside, no problems at all. The ships decor was a pleasant ...

My Husband has always been a Panama Canal Buff. So when I saw this cruise I gave it to him for our 38th wedding anniversary. Actually we spent our 39th for this cruise. Everything was great from our cabin steward Priscilla to the waiters at the restaurants to the entertainment director Ian, The shows were top rate, the food was excellent, there were many open dining restaurants, we at a Tsars ...

We chose this cruise because of The Panama Canal complete journey. I was apprehensive about the idea of 'free style cruising' however. Having been on a Celebrity cruise in November I also hoped it would compete well. The embarkation was efficient in Miami. The balcony cabin on deck 9 was just as expected. The only draw back was the small toilet within the bathroom, with a strange sliding ...

This was a really terrific cruise. Spent a few extra days in Miami prior to sailing and went into every port of call. The crew and staff were fantastic. Food was great minus a few small problems. Entertainment was great and we enjoyed talking to fellow cruisers. Saw whales, sea turtles and crocodiles from the ship and was fascinated by the Panama Canal history and how it works. Enjoyed the ...

Our 20+ cruises with NCL have had always had great crews. On our most recent Jewel cruise last month (Miami-Los Angeles via the Panama Canal) left us with the impression that NCL had conspired to hand-pick "the best of the best" for the Jewel. We felt like the staff in the main dining room, the specialty restaurants, the excursion desk, the photo shop...everywhere, were attentive, polite, ...

This is our 2nd time on the Jewel! We enjoyed it so much in 2015 for Alaska. We booked the same suite for the Panama Canal! Priority embarkation went smoothly and very fast! We stayed in 10004 Haven Owners Suite with Large Balcony H3. The cabin was stocked with the items I requested from the Concierge Desk prior to boarding. The room was very spacious and comfortable. I loved that we had 2 ...
