Before heading to Australia and New Zealand for the 2018/2019 season, Norwegian Jewel will undergo a large-scale refurbishment, ensuring that the ship arrives in local waters with upgraded menus, brand new dining experiences and new public spaces, as well as a more modern and clean design. Norwegian Jewel currently offers 16 dining options, 15 bars and lounges, as well as plenty of entertainment, the Mandara Spa and the Splash Academy Youth Centre.

Norwegian Jewel Onboard Experiences
Dining and bars
Currently Norwegian Jewel offers 16 different dining options, including seven specialty venues and eight complimentary restaurants. As part of the Norwegian Edge transformation, it’s anticipated that Norwegian Jewel will offer upgraded complimentary dining room menus and the addition of optional a la carte priced items in the main dining room. One aspect of dining aboard Norwegian Jewel that definitely won’t change is the trademark Freestyle Cruising, where guests can dine at their leisure with no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating. Norwegian Jewel also has a number of boutique bars and lounges, such as Magnum’s Champagne and Wine Bar, Shakers Martini and Cocktail Bar, and Maltings Beer and Whisky Bar.
Norwegian Jewel offers plenty of fun for everyone on board. Family-friendly activities include everything from dodgeball and zipping down the waterslide to cupcake decorating and daytime movies, while adults can enjoy exploring the art gallery, taking a dip in the pools or hot tubs, browsing through the onboard boutiques, or even settling in to the Card Room for an epic game of Scrabble.
Kids and families
If you’re after family-friendly cruising, you’ll find that Norwegian Jewel has already thought of what goes into creating an unforgettable family holiday. Splash Academy Youth Programs for kids start with Guppies for the youngest cruisers, aged 6 months to under 3 years; Turtles for little ones aged 3 to 5, Seals for kids aged 6 to 9 and Dolphins for kids aged 10 to 12. Entourage, the program for teens, includes fun things to do like music jamming, sports or even getting behind the camera and making movies. Club Underground is another venue for teens, and Norwegian Jewel offers children’s menus in the main dining rooms.
Fitness and wellbeing
Whether you want to keep it to the jogging track on deck or step your fitness regime up a notch in the Body Waves Fitness Centre, you’ll have plenty of ways to look after your mind, body and spirit aboard Norwegian Jewel. For something a little more indulgent, you can also treat yourself to some of the deluxe options at the Mandara Spa and Salon, which offers an inviting menu of signature treatments.
Shows and nightlife
Entertainment aboard your Norwegian Jewel cruise ranges from dazzling acrobatic spectaculars to laid-back Karaoke fun, and just about everything in between. The three-deck Theatre is host to lavish musical productions, there’s live music and dancing every night such as jazz, piano and salsa lessons. Norwegian Jewel also hosts themed dance parties during the trip, and Jewel Club Casino is always tempting with its Vegas-style atmosphere.
Staterooms aboard your Norwegian Jewel cruise can be divided into The Haven, Suite, Mini-Suite, Balcony, Oceanview and Inside. The Haven, as the name suggests, is the most luxurious accommodation aboard Norwegian Jewel. It is located at the top of the ship and comes with 24-hour butler service, private sundeck, and sleeps up to eight with three separate bedrooms. Interior staterooms are the most economical, with many accommodating up to four guests.
Services and accessibility
Norwegian Cruise Lines has an impressive commitment to looking after passengers with special needs, and has a dedicated team of Access Coordinators to help with any requirements and enquiries, as well as many bespoke onboard facilities. Passengers with limited mobility, hearing or vision impairments as well as disabled children can all be accommodated on board Norwegian Jewel, depending on availability. It’s essential to book well in advance if you have special need, so please talk to a Flight Centre Cruise Expert if you have any specific questions about accessibility aboard Norwegian Jewel.
