  1. Currently on the Jewel and safe to say there is something of a norovirus outbreak right now. Seems to be all most people are talking about, a number of repeated announcements about sanitation practices. My wife was struck down yesterday and now in quarantine. Hard to get a read read on the numbers but suspect it’s a reasonable amount. Crew trying to get it under control, if it gets worse I suspect they will move to more stringent measures. Medical staff nothing short of fantastic I must say, support has been first rate.

  3. Hi everyone. So today is the day that I set off on my Christmas cruise voyage. After 380 days I am finally packed (no, honestly, it didn’t take me that long to pack.....) and ready for friends to pick me up and drive me to the airport. Sydney here I come! Staying in Darling Harbour tonight before embarking on the Norwegian Jewel tomorrow. Normally this time of year I am baking Christmas cookies and wrapping presents and so it’s a bit strange to be “running away to sea almost” and leaving family behind . Also leaving behind the final rush at work and crazy people on the roads, all frazzled and wanting to be places yeaterday! I am looking forward to experiencing Christmas on a ship. . Lots of relaxing on the balcony with many pretty coloured cocktails. I will try to take photos (photography is not my friend and I sometimes get teased for the photos of the inside of my handbag or the surprise videos I have taken instead)...so I apologise now for any “out of focus shots” (see above, many pretty coloured cocktails) which may appear. If there is anything anyone would like to know or see from the ship please let me know! Cheers Julie

    NCL Jewel Class Suites

    I was looking at cruises on the Jade out of Tampa in 2020/2021 and noticed in the category section of an aft facing penthouse NOTE: BUTLER SERVICE ONLY LISTED FOR HAVENS Am I correct in assuming that they have removed butler service from all "non-haven" categories in other ships? When did this occur? Do you still get the other amenities such as concierge, private dinning at Cagney's?

    Jewel 2018 drydock updates?

    I see that the Norwegian Jewel goes into drydock this fall before heading to Australia. I haven't found info on what might be changing. Are there any details out there?
  6. Mrs Gut is in packing mode. wants to know about stuff provided in the bathrooms. cotton buds, and balls. Shower caps, tissues, shampoo, conditioner, soap bar or liquid. also sewing kits?
  7. I thought I would start a thread for any updates to the mechanical issues on the Jewel. I see that after drydock they have had problems making full speed and have been forced to make changes to itineraries. If anyone is on the Jewel or has any information as to the problem or when it might be fixed, please post here. The most current itinerary changes are here:
  8. One advantage of a family trip on Carnival was with assigned seating we knew our 16 person family group would always be together at dinner. however it sounds like with freestyle dining it will be harder to sit together at dinner and/or does the Jewell even have tables for 16 or say two 8 person tables together.

    Mid ships 11102 or 11602 Jewel

    Hello, These are the only mid ship mini suites available on our selected cruise. We do not like inter-connecting cabins. They are the last two cabins in the mid ships category before the category changes out of mid ships. Anyone stayed in either of these two cabins - and what is directly above ? Thanks for any advice.
  10. Does the Deluxe Owner's Suite on the Jade have a hot tub on it's deck? I know the Pearl does, and it's on the floor plan, but all the videos I've seen has no hot tub.
  11. 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)
  12. I've heard the min bids have been recently adjusted, and apologies, my search didn't find anything from less than a year ago. Or I found minisuite min bids, but not if you're already in a suite. Looking for current bid ranges from SF and SC categories to H4 on Jewel class. Thanks if you know or can provide a link to a post.
  13. This is a request to anyone on any of the Norwegian Jewel sailings from Sydney to New Zealand. As this is only her second season based in Sydney, there's not much info on the boards. I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping for pics and information on the ship and the ports. Things like menus, dailies, tips and observations, procedures for tenders, how soon you can get off at ports, taking water off in New Zealand, just about everything you might have had questions about yourself before sailing. As we won't be there until February, I won't be able to contribute much, but will attempt to add something useful if I can. Thanks in advance, happy cruising :)
  14. WE are thinking of going on the Jewel from Vancouver to LA next year and were wondering if there is an excursion from the ship to the air port. Sorry search sucks at the moment so not sure if this has been asked before.
  15. Has anyone got any pictures yet of the Jewel or at least some info of what got done and how it looks. Thanks
  16. From the looks of the Jewel's deck plan this cabin seems larger than regular insides could this be true or are my eyes playing games with me? Anyone stayed in the cabin can confirm my judgement? Thanks in advance Happy Travels! Saublesand :)

    NCL Jewel Jan 5, 2019 cruise

    has anyone other than the 6 of us signed up for this cruises? I do not see a roll call or any discussions. We are doing a BTB .. So will be staying on for the January 18 cruise. Thanks Dina (cousins at sea)
  18. It’s only a short cruise (7 nights) so we aren’t doing specialty restaurants, I don’t think. Figure a visit to each free venue will take most of the week We have an accessible balcony booked. Have booked Mrs G a half dozen bottles of water (I know, but happy wife and all that) Any suggestions to get the most out of this cruise.
  19. Anyone else notice that they have removed the butler service from the aft and front facing penthouses on the Jewel class ships starting in late 2020? They now only have butler service in the Haven suites. If this is the way NCL is going, it’s time for us to find a new cruise line. I mean, why book a suite, especially at the elevated prices they are at now, if yiu are getting no butler or elevated service? They have also changed the room categories adding more categories to charge more for the deck 10 aft suites and more for the deck 10 middle front facing suites. Argh
  20. Does anyone have photos of an inside sideway cabin from deck 5 on the Norwegian Jade or any of her sister ships (Pearl, Gem, Jewel)?
  21. Looking to travel Jul 2019. We are looking for porthole room for family of 3. And my only options are these. How would a OG room on deck 5 (forward porthole view) compare with a OF room on deck 4 ( mid ship porthole view) as far as bumpy ride , waves and motion sickness is concerned ?
  22. Currently booked on the Jewel in an Aft Penthouse this December and having never tried the Haven, trying to figure if it’s worth upgrading to a Courtyard Penthouse or stay put. For those in the know, what are your thoughts? Am I missing anything being in a suite outside the Haven?
  23. The only Jewel class ship i sailed on is the Gem. Just curious if the casinos on all the Jewel class ships are uniform? ie: EXACTLY the same slot machines
  24. I am looking at the Pearl but there are only 3 mini suites left....11526 which looks like it is under the Fitness Center and 11124 and 11126 which looks like they are under the Buffet. Have any of you stayed in any of these 3 cabins or any others that were under the pool/buffet? I am concerned about noise. Thanks!
  25. I wanted to share a quick tour of cabin 8630 on the Norwegian Jewel, it is an aft penthouse suite with "large balcony". We really enjoyed this room and loved the wake views!
