I was fortunate enough to travel on a Norwegian Jewel shakedown 2 nighter from Dover to Jersey and back.
The ship is stunning. She looks wonderful from the outside and is designed like the transatlantic liners of yesteryear inside. She is bright and colourful, with a huge choice of where/what to eat. Her crew are second to none, extremely helpful and courteous at all times. The cabins are much roomier than expected and again beautifully decorated with bright colours and wood veneers. The 'special cabins' on deck 14 are absolutely amazing. The Garden Villa's and Horizon Suites are out of this world, along with their private pool, courtyard, sundeck and gym areas.
The restaurants are superb, food quality is excellent as is the service from all the staff. There are so many bars and restaurants to choose from, you can have somewhere new to eat and drink every night of a 10 day cruise.
I would highly recommend the ship and her crew. I wished that I didn't have to get off her on the 10th August.
