Great Cruise except....

The food was great and most of the entertainment was excellent. I would highly recommend this ship but be prepared for some frustration. Embarkation in Vancouver, BC, we arrived at the time our tickets specified. The lines were horrible! First we stood for over an hour in US Border lines. After that we were taken to a large room and seated for 45 minutes and offered water and restrooms. Then off ...

I chose this cruise because of our Fantastic previous cruise with the Norwegian Pearl going to Alaska, and we wanted another memorable, amazing experience. It comes down to this: I am a gambler. My primary reason for cruising is gambling and drinking. I only play roulette. 1. On my last cruise, one of the two roulette tables was broken 2. I only gambled on the first day. I lost ...

My first time on a cruise was with another brand name. I was worried that I might be somewhat bored but that was not the real issue. The main thing was the environment. Norwegian's Jewel, on the other hand, was quite nice everywhere. It was modern, well lit and overall just fun from a design perspective. There were enough activities and yet there was also a delightful amount of "me time". ...

After 8 cruises, our first cruise with the Norwegian Cruise Line was on the Jewel out of Houston on April 11. Where do I begin? The first thing we noticed was how happy and friendly the employees were. One mid afternoon we were in the Garden Buffet grabbing a bite when we noticed an officer and a fairly large group of workers came out with a cake and sang Happy Birthday to a gentleman working in ...

The embarcation was quick, efficient, and professional. We did not have our correct documents but with more effort on agents part that was not a problem. The inside cabin was sufficient for our needs. We were midship and felt no movement whatsoever when at sea. We were in cabin 10607 and our cabin steward, Mr. Adonis Canada, HP#4827, was absolutely the very best cabin steward we have ever had. ...

We had a wonderful time cruising to Cozumel, Belize City & Roatan last week. We experienced the perfect balance of eating, drinking, & entertainment on-board the NCL Jewel. We especially enjoyed "free-styling"! The NCL staff was so friendly & helpful. We felt like we'd made new friends. We'd see them at the restaurants, shops, casino & even the hallways & they'd greet us with big ...

This is the 2nd time on NCL Jewel which was booked the very last minute. Since the last time has to say she went thru refurbishment and looks a LOT better. NCL took out the Chocolate Night and the lobster night but did have a sea food night on the last day. Cabin was clean and even when we did not wanted it cleaned, Sam cleaned it anyways. Food was ok. Menu hardly changed from November ...

First Time Cruiser- Great Overall Experience

Review for Norwegian Jewel to Caribbean - Western

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This Cruise was a celebration of my wife's battle of overcoming Cancer. We left Kansas City the night before and arrived in Houston almost two hours late due to air delays. We stayed at the LaQuinta on NASA Parkway, and basically just slept, ate breakfast and left. The taxi ride to the hotel and cruise terminal was fine, and the driver was great about telling us bits of information. Upon arrival ...

Very Average Ship

This was our first cruise on Norwegian. The room was very small compared to other ships I've been on. This was not a luxury-appointed ship - very basic. The ship store was very, very small with very little in it. The entertainment was average, at best. This particular cruise had a Nickelodean theme and therefore I think it was more family-oriented. Food was average. There was more than the ...

From the ease of the check-in process to disembarking today, all went smoothly and with efficiency. I booked this cruise March 2014 and the sail became our second cruise; our first on Norwegian for us and veteran floating friends sailing with us - so we had no latitude perks to begin this voyage. The officers and crew were wonderful, visible -very approachable and always asking if everything was ...
