Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review
The first thing I will say about
this boat is BOOK NOW! The entire experience from start to finish was
incredible. The ship is beautiful and tasteful and IMMACULATELY CLEAN!
The entire process from start to finish was well organized taking about 30 minutes from when the cab dropped me off to me stepping into my stateroom. I was in Stateroom #10043 (inside cabin). I am 6'1", 240 lbs and my partner is 5'11" 200 lbs and we never felt crowded. The bathroom is the highlight of the room. A shower I had no problem fitting into and amazing water pressure.
Okay- did mostly shopping and siteseeing. If I go again - it is to the beach
My only shore excursion - STINGRAY SWIMMING. Okay - fun but would have rather spent the day on own at the beach.
Shopping. If you are doing this itinerary wait for St Thomas for the bulk of your shopping but dont forget the beach- BEAUTIFUL!
Stirrup Cay - Bahamas
Didnt go because of rough weather. NCL passed on a credit to our onboard account as a courtesy.
The buffet restaurant seems to serve everything at one point or another as the other restaurants.
Tangos - decent Mexican with AMAZING SERVICE!
Cagney's - good steak and GREAT SERVICE!
Mama's - just OK Italian
Tsar' Palace- only went for breakfast but make sure you make a visit. Beautiful breakfast.
Garden Cafe: Never had a problem finding a seat and always clean. Dont miss the cookies at around 11 every night!
Would often grab a quick bite at lunchtime on the deck. Regular fare- burgers, hot dogs etc
Purchased soda card for $40.25 and myself and partner shared it ( not sure is allowed but they just glances at a sticker on your onboard account card and give you a soda at any bar or restaurant)
Do not miss CIRQUE BIJOU! That's all I can say.
Loved this ship so much that am booking for the Cruise out of Barcelona that goes all through Italy.
BOOK NOW- you will love it!!
