Norwegian Jewel - Inside Stateroom
Surprisingly comfortable and spacious, the Inside Stateroom is great for anyone on a tighter budget. Remember, though---there's no window and not an enormous amount of room compared to some of the other staterooms available.

Norwegian Jewel Reviews - Onboard Activities

The Norwegian Jewel cruise ship offers a wide variety of fun, exciting, and relaxing onboard activity options for guests of all ages to take advantage of while at sea. Norwegian Jewel truly offers something for everyone!Norwegian Jewel Atrium

Some people go on a cruise with Norwegian Jewel so they can do absolutely nothing except sit by the Sapphire Pool and drink a margarita. And there's nothing wrong with that at all!

Sapphire Pool

So, the people interested in barely raising a finger wouldn't be too interested in keeping their physique in shape in Norwegian Jewel's state-of-the-art Body Waves Fitness Center. And likely, the closest they'll get to the basketball/volleyball/tennis court in when they walk past it on their way to get another margarita.Basketball Court

Why practice your swing at the golf driving net? No, just enjoy the great weather and count clouds! Jogging around the track or swimming laps in the Indoor Lap Pool? Not today---instead mosey on over to one of the Norwegian Cruise Line Jewel hot tubs---there are six from which to choose!

Norwegian Jewel's Bora Bora Health Spa, however, may be right up your alley; all you need to do is lie there while an experienced masseuse sooths muscles. Afterwards, head to the Galleria for some great shopping.

Galleria Shops Kid's Library

While you're enjoying the day, the kids could be in any number of places. Playing video games in the arcade, watching a movie in the Kid's Cinema, or swimming in the Sapphire Kid's Pool. The older kids will love Club Underground, the NYC-inspired dance club for teens; the teeny ones will enjoy their time at the Splashdown Kid's Club, where arts & crafts, fun games, and even naps are all part of the routine.Kid's Cinema

So, while the kids are enjoying themselves, those of you who don't want to do much of anything can just wait for dinner in total, undeniable bliss and do!!
