Norwegian Jewel Cruise Review by Haitwun
- Sail Date: July 2019
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Inside
I really appreciated the Guppies playroom. My daughter and I were there at least 4 hours a day on Sea days. They have interactive programs and tons of toys to keep my daughter entertained.
A few tips regarding the Jewel:
-Teppanyaki is the most popular option on board. You must book a reservation 3 months before your sailing date.
-Grab a seat for shows 30 minutes before showtime. Evening entertainment is very popular.
-Book a shore excursion with less people. I went dog sledding in the afternoon instead of the morning, which was the less popular time slot. Everybody in my group got lots of cuddle time with their own puppy!
-Juice is only served in the mornings. The rest of the day, their beverage stations serve flavored water. Fill a container in the morning and store in your mini fridge
Vancouver cruise terminal is horribly inefficient. Long lines and grumpy workers ruined our embarkation day.
Our cabin filled with cigarette smoke on the 5th day. The staff did their best to remove the smell but I wish they could have thrown all the smokers overboard instead.
