Norwegian Jewel First Glimpse

The Norwegian Jewel cruise ship departs from Miami, FL and New York, NY. Throughout the year, she offers ocean cruises to Europe, Caribbean, and Panama Canal.

Norwegian Cruise Line's first ship in the post-Norwegian Dawn generation will be called Norwegian Jewel. The 93,000-ton, 2,400-passenger vessel will debut in August 2005.

The ship will offer garden villas, ten different restaurants, an elaborate Mandara-operated spa and a fitness center. Also intriguing is that this ship will be able to cruise at a maximum speed of 25 knots -- which gives NCL a lot of itinerary flexibility.

But Norwegian Jewel will also contain some fresh new features. Highlights include:

• A new type of cabin -- courtyard villas -- will be added; these will have a private courtyard and sundeck.

• 10 dining options range from Tango's, which will offer Latin/tapas-style cuisine to Mama's Italian Kitchen, a village-style trattoria.

Bar Central, an entirely new concept, will be a destination in its own right. The area will feature a martini bar, champagne bar, and a beer and whisky pub; all will connect but each will have its own ambience.

Family Friendly Accommodations, a large number of staterooms in most categories that can interconnect, making Norwegian Jewel ideal for families of all sizes.

• The latest in relaxation and fitness in the state-of-the-art Bora Bora Health Spa.

Splashdown Kid's Club, Sapphire Kid's Pool and Underground Teen's Club make Norwegian Jewel particularly family-friendly.

Norwegian Jewel will launch on August 10 with a limited series of European voyages before crossing the Atlantic. The ship will spend the fall based in New York sailing Canada/New England itineraries. In winter, Norwegian Jewel will offer seven-night alternating Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises from Miami.

Eastern Caribbean sailings call in San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. John's, Antigua; St. Thomas, USVI and NCL's Private Island, Great Stirrup Cay.

Western Caribbean itineraries will call at Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Georgetown, Grand Cayman and Roatan, Bay Islands.
