Review for Norwegian Jewel to U.S.A.

My husband and I took our first cruise in about 20 years on the Pacific Coastal Cruise, 9/ 20-25/2014). Since we were from the Los Angeles Area, and the cruise disembarked in Los Angeles, it was almost embarrassing at first to answer the question "Where are you sailing to?" But we learned right away not to say Los Angeles, but that it was a Pacific Coastal Cruise. Embarkation was a breeze, in that ...

We cruised on the NCL Jewel from Vancouver to Los Angeles with stops in Astoria, Oregon and San Francisco and it was a TERRIFIC experience from beginning to end! We chose NCL because we had sailed with them before and because of the itinerary. Our cabin was just as expected- we had a mini-suite and really enjoyed the private balcony. Our Cabin Steward, Barrington was excellent! He anticipated our ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

The cruise was a blast! I've never gone on a cruise before, so I figured this was a great way to get my feet wet. The Norwegian Jewel had just been renovated earlier this year, and I was looking forward to the cruise. The cruise was from Vancouver, British Columbia to Los Angeles, CA with stops in Astoria, OR and San Francisco, CA. The entire cruise was marked with excellent weather. I traveled to ...

Have just returned from our trip.  Joined ship and was greeted by a waiter with a tray of cocktails. Very nice until we realised that we had to pay for them. We thought it was a welcome on board free drink instead another ruse to get some money out of us. What a welcome!!!! The pool area was shabby and tacky and the cabins were rather small even with a balcony. The dining was of a high standard ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We are experienced cruisers, having sailed with Carnival, Celebrity, Princess and Regent Seven Seas. We booked this with friends. They chose the cruise and we joined them. Embarkation was smooth and fast. We arrived at the port at 11:40 and we were on the ship at 12:15. Cabins were available at 1:30. We had a mini suite, which was comfortable and spacious. Only complaint about the room: the ...

I was on the 6 day reposition cruise from Vanvouver to Los Angeles, celebrating my 10-year anniversary with my wife. A friend's family also joined us. Booked about 6 months before sailing and paid 1100 for two for an inside cabin. One week prior sailing the pricing has gone down to $800 for two, so I called Costco travel. No you will not get a refund for the difference (unless you got a "lowest ...

This was my first time to cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines and my last. I only cruised with them because my other cruise for the west coast got canceled. (Thank you Celebrity for not taking a chance on leaving cruisers stranded on a ship with problems). I booked a two bedroom family suite in "The Haven". Our suite was called the "Passion Flower Suite." The livind/dining room was spacious, but ...

Boarded at Balyntine Pier in Vancouver - wonderful and what an improvement over Canada Place. From the taxi dropping us off to boarding the ship 15 miutes. Our first impression, happy and festive. Lots of music everywhere. Our cabin was a mini-suite 11514, great room and the drape that separated the bed and sofa was great. New flat screen tv. two chairs a nice touch. Bed and linen very nice. Hated ...

Just completed the repositioning cruise from Vancouver to L.A. with my Wife and Daughter (age 20). We have been on three previous cruises, all with Carnival, but liked the itinerary and thought we should give Norwegian a try. Not because we were disappointed with Carnival, on the contrary we were very pleased with those cruises, just though we should try another to have something to compare to. We ...

Six of us departed Olympia at 5 a.m. to drive to Seattle, parked our car at Pier 66 (where our ship would return), took a cab to the Amtrak King Street Station, and enjoyed a 4 hours stress-free trip to Vancouver, B.C. We spent the night in Vancouver, enjoyed the free buffet breakfast in our hotel, and taxied to the Canada Place cruise terminal at approximately 11:30 am. We were able to check in, ...
