Review for Norwegian Jewel to Baltic Sea

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We are a professional couple from Naples, Florida, USA - no kids. We flew into Heathrow, and took the train down to Dover. We stayed at the Churchill (great location, lackluster hotel), and took a taxi to the ship. Off to the various ports, liked them all. Weather was perfect. We particularly liked Stockholm. The only tours we took were in St Petersburg (because of the visa ...

Norwegian Jewel was very good. Beauiful ship but miss the big beautiful atiums of other lines. Dining-Good alternative dining, though we never pay for extra dining. We prefer to travel more often and economize. Loved the Blue Lagoon (never crowded), especially while leaving a port. Comfort food great there. Dining room good but SLOW service. Waiters terribly rushed. Not enough staff. Started ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was my 7th cruise (Princess in '02, Celebrity in '04 & '06, NCL in '07, and RCCL twice in 2008). I traveled with my wife and three children (5, 4, and 2). With us were my parents (60s), my sister and her children (10 & 9), and my aunt. We stayed in London at Le Meridien Piccadilly Circus for 2 nights pre-cruise. We used the underground to get from Heathrow to PC. That was really easy but ...

I am 16. I pretty much organised this cruise, mum paid and brother (14) came for the ride Embarkation at Dover was easy. The check in queue moved quickly, and there was a short wait to board, but the process was all very efficient. During the day, the pool had quite loud music playing, whether it was live or not. The music was usually played over and over again. The pools were good, as was the ...

Hi, I just came back from the Baltic cruise on the NCL Jewel. It was just perfect, we had a lovely time and already miss it. Embarkation was fast were on the ship in less then 1 hour. Days at sea were great lots of things to do if you want to or just relax as we did. Ports were all nice, the only thing that I think should be changed is the 2 days in St' Perersburg. One day in enough ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

My wife and I recently returned from a Baltic Capitol cruise on the Norwegian Jewel. A jewel it was not. The line touts its freestyle cruising, but it is anything but free. They nickle and dime you to death, e.g. $10 to exchange currency, $10 to $25 cover charge per person for the opportunity to eat at an alternative restaurant rather than at the dining rooms which serve bland, tasteless meals ...

This is my 10th cruise, but my first cruise with Norwegian (I have previously cruised with Princess, Holland America, and Royal Caribbean). Overall my friend and I greatly enjoyed ourselves (we are both in our twenties), but they were things that we would definitely recommend that the ship consider improving: 1. There is a $10 fee to exchange money - ouch! I would recommend going to an atm in ...

We are 2 professional couples in our 50's just returned from a superb cruise, our 5th together and our second with NCL. Our overriding thoughts, on reading some previous reviews, are " What do some people expect?". The staff and crew of this ship could try no harder to make your holiday perfect. We have travelled the world, expect high standards and NCL hit the mark! Embarkation: No problems, ...

NCL Jewel and the Baltic - what's not to love

The what's not to love part stared even before we got to our embarkation check in station, but more on that later. We always travel to foreign ports (we're from the U.S.)several days early and this was no exception. Arrived in Dover 3 days before our cruise and stayed at the Ramada Dover because of decent reviews and their web site suggested it was only a 15 - 20 minute walk to town center. ...
