  1. https://www.focusdailynews.com/alaska-on-the-ncl-jewel/ Here is what we wrote ... Kristin did a video of the room 15500 but I'm not sure where to find it ... maybe on her facebook or you tube?
  2. You will love it. Best Cabin we ever had ... and a great steward and butler ... of course they are now furloughed but we have kept in touch as faceook friends. Hope you get them as well but entire crew was wonderul. And you have not only your own hottub, but also two more one floor down in the Haven area along with a steam room and kids pool. You can order breakfast and lunch while in the sitting area by the pool as well ... It's a great experience and it was never crowded. ENJOY!!!!!!

  5. Ugh!!! Praying for the wonderful crew that we loved so much ... The Jewel is now stranded ... https://kitchener.ctvnews.ca/norwegian-jewel-passengers-stranded-as-ship-turned-away-at-ports-1.4854544
  6. Has NCL communicated with you on the cancellation? We know nothing yet although we completely anticipate either them cancelling on us or us needing to cancel on them. Very disappointed but since we both are in a high risk category for this damnable virus we currently see no choice if there is no miracle ... although when it is all straight again we want to rebook as soon as we can. Same cabin, of course. We were SO HAPPY with the DOS! Best Wishes for Good Luck for you!! Looking forward to hearing what offers NCL gives you ...
  7. We forgot to mention, behind the sauna around a corner there is a large steam room. You regulate the heat yourself with a control outside the door. Be careful where you sit the first time because you don't want to be exactly where the steam comes out from under the seats - it will burn your ankles. Fortunately, not severely, but just the same, why get a "hot steamy surprise!" We found that we spent a lot of time in the courtyard because of the drinks, meals delivered to us there, hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms and showers.
  8. If you have the alcohol package you don't even need the liquor. Our butler (absolutely wonderful service from both butler and steward - hope you get the same ones!) bubble wrapped the liquor for us and everything. The wine we gave to other folks on the ship. Kristin's points above and video are perfect. You will love the cabin and the cruise. Enjoy!!
  9. Something we wish we'd known if you're in the Haven you can eat lunch & breakfast in Moderno OR the courtyard. There were days we enjoyed the courtyard, it was quiet and the perfect spot. On the first day even if the rooms aren't ready you can go up and drop off your carry-on luggage. Then find a spot on the observation lounge in courtyard and relax with a drink. If you don't want to use the bottles of alcohol that come with the room because you have the drink package, request bubble wrap and they'll wrap them for you. Request binoculars, great for spotting from your balcony.
  10. Do you know if they use good liquor or just the cheap stuff in their drinks?

  12. We had towel animals every night ... and no problems with anything in August trip. Everything in Fridge was from NCL ... Didn't notice what brand of water, although we were left new bottles every day and had no problems with air, doors, light switches or anything in 15500. Liked it so much we have reserved it again for two future cruises!
  13. Two bathrooms ... one full bath including shower and commode right when you enter room and another linked to the master suite complete with tub, shower double sink and commode etc. Then, outside of the master suite on the balcony is the hot tub. You can get to the balcony from the master bath and from the master bedroom.
  14. The garden villa is on the other side of the hot tub ... it is one floor down ... we can see down but they can't see into our balcony ... the large picture windows that we can see out one "could" in theory see in but since they are way below our suite them seeing in is very difficult.
