Never Again

Review for Norwegian Jewel to Mediterranean

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

having sailed with NCL before on a Hawaii cruise I was keen to do a back to back Med cruise with them. I have cruised around 20 times with Princess, P and O, Holland America, Saga, Thompson, My Cruises etc. and I have never been so dissatisfied. The food was awful and though the menus sound good in the restaurant it arrives late and cold and incorrectly served. I.E. all breakfast choices served ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

We chose the NCL Mediterranean Cruise because we like to get the most for our money. We traveled during the shoulder season when it is a little cooler, and the prices are cheaper. The up-side is you have fewer tourists, and you are able to "negotiate" with the vendors because they have fewer people shopping at one time. On shore excursions, we used private tours in Greece and Turkey and Viator ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

My goal this time around is to keep this short and sweet — or at least shorter than most of my previous reviews. :) I don't believe reviews that are all glowing or all scathing, so you'll find a mix here. The bottom line is that anything that momentarily annoyed me or compared unfavorably to past cruises did not affect my overall appreciation of this cruise at all. This was a wonderful trip, the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Norwegian Jewel, Feb 21-28 2009. My ninth cruise, third with NCL. It took something like 15-20 minutes from the time we took our luggage out of the car at the Miami Cruise Terminal until we got to our stateroom. That was the fastest screening, registration and embarkation I've ever seen! We had an interior stateroom, impeccably clean, but I was a little bit disappointed by the furniture. The ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We are a professional couple from Naples, Florida, USA - no kids. We flew into Heathrow, and took the train down to Dover. We stayed at the Churchill (great location, lackluster hotel), and took a taxi to the ship. Off to the various ports, liked them all. Weather was perfect. We particularly liked Stockholm. The only tours we took were in St Petersburg (because of the visa ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

I am 16. I pretty much organised this cruise, mum paid and brother (14) came for the ride Embarkation at Dover was easy. The check in queue moved quickly, and there was a short wait to board, but the process was all very efficient. During the day, the pool had quite loud music playing, whether it was live or not. The music was usually played over and over again. The pools were good, as was the ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

My wife and I recently returned from a Baltic Capitol cruise on the Norwegian Jewel. A jewel it was not. The line touts its freestyle cruising, but it is anything but free. They nickle and dime you to death, e.g. $10 to exchange currency, $10 to $25 cover charge per person for the opportunity to eat at an alternative restaurant rather than at the dining rooms which serve bland, tasteless meals ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This is my 10th cruise, but my first cruise with Norwegian (I have previously cruised with Princess, Holland America, and Royal Caribbean). Overall my friend and I greatly enjoyed ourselves (we are both in our twenties), but they were things that we would definitely recommend that the ship consider improving: 1. There is a $10 fee to exchange money - ouch! I would recommend going to an atm in ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We are 2 professional couples in our 50's just returned from a superb cruise, our 5th together and our second with NCL. Our overriding thoughts, on reading some previous reviews, are " What do some people expect?". The staff and crew of this ship could try no harder to make your holiday perfect. We have travelled the world, expect high standards and NCL hit the mark! Embarkation: No problems, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was my 7th cruise (Princess in '02, Celebrity in '04 & '06, NCL in '07, and RCCL twice in 2008). I traveled with my wife and three children (5, 4, and 2). With us were my parents (60s), my sister and her children (10 & 9), and my aunt. We stayed in London at Le Meridien Piccadilly Circus for 2 nights pre-cruise. We used the underground to get from Heathrow to PC. That was really easy but ...
