  1. We just booked a cruise on Norwegian Jewel, Suite 15500. It is apparently a relatively new cabin since NCL doesn't even have a floor plan posted for it. Has anyone been in it yet who can give us any insights?
  2. We have been planning our 40th anniversary cruise for so long now. We are planning to go April 15 on the 14 day cruise on the Jewel to Tahiti and Hawaii. A few months ago I heard a lot of talk about this cruise being canceled. But I haven't heard anything about that for a while. Has anyone else heard anything from Norwegian about this cruise being canceled? And I know that no one knows the future for sure but what do you think the chances that we will be cruising again by mid April?
  3. I just went to check on the availability of my 1st November cruise on Epic on the NCL website and found that both Epic and Jewel are missing from the list for both November and December
  4. The Norwegian Jewel showed up in Long Beach, California today. She is currently anchored in the harbor.
  5. Just received from NCL an email like this for each cruise we booked in Jan/Feb 2021, including the Feb 27, 2021 Sydney to Tahiti: "As a result of changes to the redeployment of our fleet, all Norwegian Jewel sailings from September 25, 2020 through February 27, 2021 have been cancelled. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.Please be advised that a full refund will be automatically returned to the form of payment provided at the time of booking. As we are sure you share our disappointment, we have issued a future cruise credit, worth 10% of the price paid for your previously scheduled cruise. This credit can be used for up to one year from today's date and can be applied towards any of our currently published sailings between January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2022. The future cruise credit will be available on June 15, 2020." Maybe first Jewel sailing will be Mar 18 2021, Tahiti to Honolulu, as that's not cancelled (yet). Rob
  6. We are considering the Norwegian jewel 14 day Tahiti and Hawaii cruise next April as our 40th anniversary trip of a lifetime. Sure hoping the pandemic is done by then! We have been on a few Norwegian ships but not the jewel. Maybe some of you can answer one or more of our questions? We are looking at the aft penthouse suite with the extended balcony. We would also consider the foreward facing suites with a larger balconies but we are worried about the wind. Any experiences anyone can share? We really love a quiet private adults only sundeck that has decent shade. If you have a penthouse suite are you able to use the Haven area or not? If not is there another good place for adults only? Even for an extra fee? We also love The spa and a thermal suite. How is the spa and thermal suite on the Jewel? And if anyone has done this specific itinerary do you have any tips or favorite experiences? We are also hoping to stay for a few days before hand in an overwater bungalow in Moorea.
  7. According to the NCL web site the S4 cabins on the jewel sleep up to six people. It is a two bedroom cabin but the specific sleeping arrangements are not listed. I am going to go out on a limb and assume the master bed sleeps two. What is in the 2nd bedroom (bed for two, single bed and pull down bed, double bed pull down bed?), and how many does the pull out sofa sleep?
  8. They don't mention the ships names but I assuming since these 3 do Alaska? https://www.sfgate.com/news/bayarea/article/Three-Cruise-Ships-Without-Passengers-Will-Dock-15258260.php
  9. Are there any tricks I am missing to finding the biggest Balconies on the ships? I haven't really found a single place yet to find this information. I am looking at a Balcony (B category) room on the Jewel, and it says balconies can range from "38-54 feet". Well, I would sure rather have 54 feet than 38!!! I use this site sometimes but it is often hit or miss (in this case, miss) on specifics. https://*****/CruiseShips/BestCabins.aspx?ShipName=Norwegian+Jewel I don't feel like the stateroom maps on the official site are drawn to scale enough to really tell a difference. Anyhow, my specific question right now is for Jewel, but I have always wondered generally too.....thanks in advance!
  10. This is a recent acount from the Jewel. Last cruise ship on the ocean?
  11. Just sitting here reading the story of “no place to go”. If you held an American passport in hand and jumped off the Jewel in the port in Hawaii .... and lived....what would they do with you? Put you back on the ship? Arrest you? .....which would be fine at that point with me.....As an American what could they force you to do since there is no confirmed cases. Hmmm.....
  12. Off of Kahala @ 9:20 AM. Taken from my house.
  13. Hello Everyone, Looking at booking on Jewel next year in the haven. Have done Haven on Epic and Escape in the past, but looking at Jewel it is obviously a lot smaller. From reading on here, it seems like they offer breakfast/lunch in one of the restaurants daily, but I assume dinner is in the main dining room? Does the haven itself have its own bar? Outside sun deck bar? I know it doesn’t have a lounge, but would be nice to drink and relax in the haven without having to wander out. Any other overall haven experiences/info on the Jewel is appreciated. thanks in advance!
  14. Does anyone know what the current price is of the Thermal spa pass on the Jewel? Right now, its saying too early to book for my cruise. Thanks!
  15. There are obviously more restaurants, bars, and various other venues on the larger ships. My question is how crowded is a Jewel Class compared to the mega ships? Does a fully booked Jewel Class feel just as crowded as a fully booked mega ship? I have been on the Escape, Getaway, Breakaway, Epic, and the Joy. I enjoyed all my cruises but finding that I only do such things as the ropes course, water slides about once a cruise or sometimes not at all. Some ships seemed very crowded and some did not. Even on the crowded ships the wait times for bar service or meal service were acceptable. All in all price and itinerary are always the key factor of any decision but their are some neat looking cruises in 2021 on the Jewel Class that I am considering. What do people think who have been on both? Thanks for reading my post.
  16. Hi. Just realizing our beverage package does not include bottled or cartoned water. What would the Jewel have to fill up bottles to carry around As well are we allowed to take our full reusable water bottles off the ship? gracelyn
  17. Hi, just wondering if their is a special activity for the sail away? Like BBQ music etc looking to decide if I want to book an alacarte or be out on deck for sail away. also is there a seafood night? gracelyn
  18. Here is a short video of Deck 13 on the Jewel.
  19. Daily Mail A woman is being tested for the deadly coronavirus after attempting to board a cruise ship in Sydney. Paramedics were called to the international passenger terminal at Circular Quay shortly before 7.30am on Friday as the ship, the Norwegian Jewel, docked. The vessel arrived in Sydney after a 10-day tour of New Zealand. It is scheduled to make its way to Melbourne on Saturday. It is understood the a woman in her 50s was taken to hospital as she appeared to be suffering respiratory illness. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8002211/Cruise-ship-placed-lockdown-Sydney-Harbour-passenger-tested-coronavirus.html
  20. We are considering an Alaskan cruise on the Jewel but I am hesitant. We are used to the big ships, having cruises on Breakway, Oasis, Allure and Harmony. We have 2 kids who will be 16 and 11 when we sail. I am wondering if there is enough on the ship to keep them busy. Also, considering the Haven and wondering if the cost is worth it. We have done the Haven on the breakaway so know it is nice. But in your opinion, is it worth it for a Alaskan cruise? Thanks!
  21. We are hoping to sail to South Pacific in fall 2021. Does anyone know if the Norwegian Jewel will do that itinerary again in 2021 and if so when it will be available to book? Also we are only interested in Aft suites with large balconies. I can't see anywhere how to know which Aft suites have arrest balconies. The stated sizes range wildly from 54 feet to more than 150 feet. And are the Aft suite balconies deep enough to have lounge chairs face the water. We don't like shallow balconies. Finally, how do those of you who have sailed the Jewel like it? We have been on the Getaway and the Spirit.
  22. Hello all - we are on the Jewel so here are the pictures .... It’s our first time on the Jewel so I would appreciate anyone posting the before dry dock pictures ... Chin Chin New Ultra Bliss lounge (ex- Fyzz)
  23. Does anyone know if the Jewel has any obstructed view (specifically lifeboats) balcony cabins?
  24. Sailing out of Seward this September on Jewel. According to NCL they depart port at 9:00 PM. Can anyone tell me generally what time boarding begins? I know we'll be assigned a time by NCL, but I'm just interested in when it begins so I can make my travel arrangements to the port. Thanks.
  25. Anyone stayed in the "Haven Area" on the Jewel or other Class Ships of the same. Know there is not a bar or restaurant in this area. But wondering about Butler drink, meal service. We would have the drink pkg. which I know does not cover room service delivery in non haven cabins, , except is that included in these premium priced cabins? Would enjoy breakfast served with a bloody Mary, ,lol. we are aging and thinking about a splurge. Have seen this area before, the courtyard area, but would appreciate any comments about the specialties included. Have a SN Suite now, but considering an upgrade, since I have "heard" the SN category suites may not be given much except larger suite, starting in Sept.
