  3. Norwegian Jewel
The cruise on the Norwegian Jewel wasn't bad, but I have had better cruise experiences on other cruise line's ships. Second time cruising with Norwegian and have found that their food is mediocre in every venue, the walls are paper thin so we had the pleasure of a crying baby next door every day and every night, and perception-wise, the cleanliness of the ship was not what it should have been - smudges on most surfaces, even on the first day of the cruise. Wi-Fi on the ship was spotty at best. The transitions from breakfast to lunch to dinner was incredibly clumsy and not well orchestrated. The value packages offered by Norwegian was well worth the price, so kudos to them for marketing their cruises in that way. If I every cruise with Norwegian again, I will definitely focus on their newer ships with the hope that they get the food situation improved to compete with other cruise lines.

Glad we went, but not up to par
