We just returned from an Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on the Norwegian Jewel and loved it. Our flight from Boston was smooth and there were no hitches as far as luggage was concerned.
Embarkation was fairly easy and we were on the ship by 1 P.M. We had the opportunity to get an upgrade to a Penthouse which we took. We were in the stern section so there were no strong breezes when we opened the sliding glass doors. Our cabin was quite nice and included a coffee and tea maker which took a little practice in using.
After lunch in the garden cafe we explored the ship. It is quite spacious and ia really spotless. As latitudes members we had invitations to Captains cocktail parties and other get togethers with cruise critic members.
