FABULOUS!

I was on the NCL Dawn in October, and felt it was lacking in the 'FUN' dept. This was probably because it was a cold weather Canada cruise, but I was hoping the Jewel experience would be different. We were not ...

Good cool fun on Jewel

This cruise is designed for NY/NJ area residents who don't want to fly. Probably 3/4 of the ship were locals. As Chicago area residents we always have to fly somewhere to catch a cruise, so usually go south and ...

First I must confess that our experience on this trip was made much better by our gradual change from being inside cabin cruisers to the Suite Life. So, take my review with a grain of salt knowing that the Suite ...

Think Twice Before Booking an Owners Suite

We probably would have enjoyed the cruise more if we had not had not booked room 10004 (Owners Suite with the large balcony) from the beginning. We felt isolated from the Haven amenities and did not feel we received ...
