pazz - We are booked on the Jewel for Oct 09 on her repositioning from NYC to Miami via both Eastern and Western Caribbean. We have been on her sister ships the Dawn and the Gem in the recent past as well as on the Dawn next week. The Jewel is similar to both of them and,like them, is highly regarded by her past passengers.
I/We are sure that you and those with you will enjoy her-this class of ships seem to handle NCL "Freestyle" cruising with more panache than their slightly older sisters.
Welcome to cruise-chat-visit us often to share ideas and good times-we're a grand group of shipmates here and we look forward to sharing with you our experiences and knowledge-we learn from each other!
