Greetings! Okay, so here's my review of the 2 week NCL Jewel Repositioning Cruise, departing April 11th from Miami and returning April 24th in NYC. Please note - in regards to my review: 1) I am 30 years old 2) I was traveling with my partner, and my parents (sep rooms) 3) I am always gracious to have "a hot meal", regardless of culinary expertise 4) I stay out late (past midnight) Here's ...

Though I had a great time, this is the most disappointing cruise I have been on. Positive random thought: The cabin was very nice. The shower was the largest I have seen on a cruise line. The Circus Bijou show was the nicest show I have seen on a cruise ship Dinning: The first six nights of this cruise it seemed the dining and cooking staff was swamped. We waited twenty minutes for them to ...

This was our eleventh cruise on various cruise lines but our first repositioning cruise. We had taken two previous NCL cruises and liked the "Freestyle" concept. The Jewel left Miami and after six ports and 13 nights was ending up in NYC which appealed to us greatly as my husband had never seen the NYC and this way we could kill two birds with one stone.We were travelling with another couple. We ...

This was my first time cruising with NCL; have only cruised with Royal Carribean in the past and was hesitant about trying a new one since Royal was top of the line experience. Pros: Stateroom: We had 2 inside rooms since I am a single mom with 3 children and this was more cost effective than a suite. The cabin was very clean. Food: There was a decent variety. Overall the food was mediocre to ...

For first time cruisers my husband and I did intensive research about cruise lines/ships and destinations. We were wavering between the Caribbean and Mexican Riviera. When we found this "repo" cruise and saw the price the choice was easy. Then of course we (meaning I) logged onto Cruise Critic to read all about past cruises and see if there were comments on this cruise. We joined Roll Call and ...

We had a wonderful cruise on the Norwegian Jewel - especially considering the lousy time we had on HAL in January. The Jewel sparkled! I love how they paint their ships, very colourful and welcoming, as were the staff. The food was good, but not exceptional. Our cabin was nice and we enjoyed many afternoons on our balcony with a glass of wine. The ship was clean and well organized, however we ...

This was our 6th cruise on NCL and absolutely the best. We flew out of Newark to Miami the day before the cruise with no problems. Stayed at La Quinta East along with a bunch of other CC'ers. The hotel was fine, nothing fancy, but fine, breakfast included. We rented a car and drove over to Haulover Beach on Sunny Isles for a few hours and then went for dinner in South Beach. A great way to start ...

We were treated royally from the first moment we arrived at the dock onward. Embarkation was seamless and easy. Our suite was absolutely wonderful, and our steward & butler were fantastic. The food was terrific for the most part -- we ate at the French and Italian speciality restaurants, which were excellent. The only negative was the weather, which NCL had no control over. I wasn't ...

Embarkation in Miami was a breeze. We arrived, sat down in the lounge, and were finally escorted to the atrium onboard to meet our concierge. Total time, ten minutes. Very nice and a definite thumbs up. Iris the asst. concierge was in the atrium and once again escorted us to our cabin. Shortly after our butler, Amit, arrived to explain how everything in the room worked. Our experience with the ...

Flights from Glasgow to London and then London to Miami were with British Airways. Can't praise them highly enough. The luggage was sent off in Glasgow and we did not see it again until Miami. Husband is disabled and assistance was provided at Heathrow which was most welcome. Flights were good with attentive cabin crew and good food and drinks. On arrival in Miami we were transferred by ...
