Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by Cruisin Patty
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Penthouse with Large Balcony
We had dinner in Cagney's, LeBistro and Teppanyaki and it is hard to choose which would be the best. All three are excellent! I did notice that the "show" that Teppanyaki usually does while preparing the meal was non existent. Not sure why they cut that out but the food was great! We also visited the buffet once and O'Shehan's once. No complaints at either. Dinner in the main dining room was also very nice. All the food was good as always.
Entertainment was good but not great. I thought Rock You Tonight was the best show we saw. The 45 minutes just flew by and we wanted more! Velvet was okay but didn't seem to have a good flow to it. The comedian, Carl Strong, was very funny and we enjoyed him. Le Cirque Bijou was incredible. My only problem was trying to keep up with all the acts, there were several going on at the same time.
Icy Strait Point was a great port that we had not visited on our previous cruise. Our excursion, Whales & Wildlife, was great and I highly recommend it. We saw bears, eagles, whales and sea lions. In Skagway, we visited a Musher's Camp and actually had a ride in a sled. We got to hold puppies too.
Bottom line, this was a great cruise! If you have the time, I encourage you to do the land tour before the cruise. We did the Authentic Alaska and it was incredible!
