Age 40s

Norwegian Jewel 11/29/2009 - 12/06/2009 Embarkation: Since we drove in the night before we arrived at the Port of Miami at around 10:00 am. We were about the 10th passengers on the line for check-in and passing through security was very easy and smooth. Once through security, it was on to the check-in counter to receive our keys and then to the "staging area" where you wait to board. One ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

Embarkation: This was our 6th cruise (1 with Princess, 4 with Carnival and 1st with NCL). We had read all the reviews and we selected a Penthouse suite to make comparisons with the other cruise lines. We read all about the NCL "Suite Life" and were so excited about experiencing it. We landed at the Miami airport around 12:45 PM and joined our friends in the baggage claim area. The four ...

First Time Cruiser

To make a long story short, this trip was by far the worst cruise we have every experienced. The service was horrible, not one staff member was friendly, smiled, or seemed to enjoy their job. The food and food service was worse than waiting in line at a fast food restaurant. It seemed we waited for ever for our beverages, and forget asking for them to leave the bread basket, against the policy. ...

Review for Norwegian Jewel to Caribbean - Southern

First Time Cruiser

I guess I would have to start off by saying, I am a frequent cruiser and wanted to experience the "freestyle" Norwegian experience, but what a mistake that was. My husband and I booked the Jewel for our honeymoon, and as soon as we walked onto the ship we noticed the differences in the cruiseline from other cruiselines we have been on. The dining experience was absolutely horrible. ...

I had cruised with NCL 2 times prior , on the SEA out of Houston , fabulous experiences, great service, so when I referred my friend for his 40th birthday a cruise on the Jewel I knew it would be great... was I shocked and so disappointed. To begin with, the birthday room package i had paid weeks for in advance never was up in the stateroom until I tracked down the steward and asked him to please ...
