Norwegian Jewel cruises Europe, Canada and New England, and the Caribbean. She also sails Transatlantic cruise from New York to Southampton.

The Norwegian cruise built by Meyer Werft in Germany was named ‘Norwegian Jewel’ at Miami port in 2005. She was featured on Donald Trump’s show, ‘The Apprentice’ just after her launch. During the episode, the contestants were asked to make a 30-second advertisement featuring the Jewel.

Keeping up with the trend of ‘Free-Style’ dining of the Norwegian Cruises, the Jewel also inculcates this concept on board and yet provides a lot to choose from on the voyage. Some of its famous restaurants are: Le Bistro, Chin –Chin which is an Asian Restaurant, Tango’s Tapas Bar, Spin maker bar and restaurant, a Steak house, The Blue Lagoon and Mama’s Kitchen.

Entertainment includes the Stardust Theatre, Jewel Club casino, Karaoke club and a gaming centre.

People who love outdoor games and activities can opt to play basket ball, volley ball or try some golf.

For sheer luxury and privacy, the Norwegian Jewel provides spacious villas on board which feature a living room, dining room and a huge bath. The various accommodations in the luxury range are Courtyard villas, Garden villas, Owner’s suite, Romance suite and Penthouse suite.
