  1. Norwegian Jewel new video on recent refurbishments Click on the link for you tube video. https://lm.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutu.be%2FDY21T8MCtAk%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR26Ni6cyyxkZkLOvKLpqaCOhCzGTHKioPltV42A8VO_5y4AzPhWxkHRsu4&h=AT2GTNOGs1KX0ETgA6hk9qia3GGNVcn8Yr5NFcGPz12SZFJ4BC6C4qKtsHvcXl_PBAPiSaYS3J9HSGZ0D01AXRYU0kb3tOJKIhMqNIPj6siyNa4HeO3OZ49RTNDull897Sp-mj4
  2. Thanks for the update. Hope they fix the Jewel soon so your trip isn't further interrupted. The ship sounds amazing after the refurb. Keep posting and enjoy your trip to Australia.
  3. Thanks for your comment. Just to be clear, I didn't choose the Norwegian Jewel for the waterslide but for the amazing itinery. The itinery worked for me and the slide was a bonus especially for those families traveling with young children, no matter what the slide is like. From what I can tell, there aren't a lot of outdoor activities for the children. In my opinion a ship without a slide or waterpark is gearing itself towards a different market.
  4. A seperate thread was created because it doesn't belong on this Norwegian Star thread, nor does it belong on a Roll Call thread. Thank you for your comment.
  5. Glad you had fun on it. Is the slide as bad as what some are saying on this thread?
  6. Maybe upgrade was the wrong choice of words, they should've replaced the old weatherbeaten slide (as you have described it) with a new water slide. Is it the Jewel that you and your son have been on or a sister ship?
  7. I don't know how lame the slide was, as I haven't been on it. I didn't choose the Jewel for the slide but for the itinery. The slide is for the children, there aren't a lot of outdoor activities for the children...mainly indoor only.

  9. NCL have removed the water slide from the Jewel during the recent 2018 dry dock refurb to make way for a more relaxing atmosphere by the pool. But what about the families that booked knowing their kids would enjoy the slide. Have read posts on cruise critic about other NCL ships losing the slide during a refurb and some saying that the yellow slide wasn't the best and outdated. If this was the case, why not upgrade the slide instead of taking it away! Or create a small water park. As an adult I enjoy going on the slides. Have been on a cruise without a slide and it's just not as enjoyable for the young ones as well. Very disappointed! https://www.ncl.com/au/en/travel-blog/norwegian-jewel-dry-dock-2018-ship-renovation-details
  10. They have also removed the slide during the NCL Jewel 2018 refurb. Very disappointed about this. If the yellow slide wasn't great NCL should've upgraded it!
  11. Thank you to all who replied to this thread. I decided to go with World2Cover as it included $5000 car insurance excess as we were thinking of hiring a car at one of the ports in NZ. Almost the same policy as RACV travel insurance with a couple of differences ...same underwriter. It was also a part of my Entertainment Book membership so it came at a discount too.
  12. I suppose I have never known this clause was in place. I have been on 3 cruises so far...maybe I should start reading all the fine print! It seems that insure and go is very popular. Has anyone used Holiday rescue travel insurance?
  13. I have been reading the pds statements that come with most insurance policies and was surprised to notice that they don't cover you if you have had any alcohol in your system when an incident occurs. I don't drink a lot ...maybe 3 max per night...seems a bit rough if they don't cover you after a few drinks. I can understand not providing cover if you are completely intoxicated and incapacitated. Anyone had experience in this area?
