FOOD & DINING Not a thing to complain about, especially from a guy who dislikes cooking. I personally prefer healthier options and trust that they had a ton of them. We also dined at 3 specialty restaurants per our tradition and ... Read more

We chose this ship because of previous Norwegian cruise line experience and that it was leaving out of Seattle. However, we felt the Jewel fell short in the dining experience. The food at the Buffet and the dessert area were disappointing. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it went to Cuba. In retrospect we should have chosen a cruise that was in Cuba longer and gone to more ports. The disembarkation was late by 2 hours and very disorganized. The front desk did not have many ... Read more
