Jewel 2018 drydock updates?

Recommended Posts

Don't know. Get no Information on Board. Also ask about our Newseeland Cruise beginning 01.12., but got no answer. Very very bad Customer service here. Rumor said, Decision will make in Brisbane. I don't believe it

Woohoo! NCL has finally come to their senses and dumped the waterslide off the Jewel. I can't say I'm crazy about any other improvements they've done to the ship. I'll miss the Fyzz Lounge. The new Bliss Lounge doesn't look as inviting or like they did much to change it but those karaoke rooms were a hoot! Given the ship's deployment to Asia and Australia, I can't imagine why they'd remove them given the cultural love for karaoke.

 

As for the issues with the propulsion, hopefully it gets sorted soon. My cruise earlier this year to NZ on the Radiance of the Seas was cancelled after the Captain struck bottom on the prior cruise and damaged one of them. All the best to the folks on the NZ sailing.

Did the spinikar lounge get an update? 

 

Yes. I’ll post pictures when I am on proper internet. The new looks so nice.

Yes - new carpet basically -and also new bedside lights with USB port. 

 

Wait a week when we’re off ship and into hotel so I’ll be able to upload the photos.

From photos, the look of Fyzz seemed very outdated. But definitely not as weird as the Bliss Lounge on the Pearl, which my DH describes as "Voodoo Bordello plus bowling."

In addition to the carpets and USB ports, new furniture, soft furnishings such as curtains, artwork etc.

The rooms in the Fyzz were not removed.  They were removed on the Jade, not the Jewel.

4 USB charge ports in our cabin, one on each bed light, 2 under TV

 

colour scheme seems less gaudy than previous photos

Looks similar to what they did on the Gem, not so loud and busy, more mellow art and colors.

Looks like there might be two new Haven rooms on the 15th floor. Just saw it on the floor plans when booking the December 1st Australian cruise today for our honeymoon!!

We just booked one of the two suites. Has anyone seen the actual floor plans or stayed in one of them?

Got on the ship the day the contractors got off after 2 week drydock- Nov 2, 2018 in Singapore. Here are a couple photos. The cabin photos are from our Penthouse Suite aft 9170. Everything looked so shiny and new. Even the bathtub glistened.20181111_221452.thumb.jpg.e2c3db8860495739c3bfd349f91b2904.jpgIMG_8428.thumb.JPG.9313832b3e52bbdd3c222ef155f21841.JPG20181111_221747.thumb.jpg.a840ab380ca05d762b9adb1a58517b83.jpg20181109_094803.thumb.jpg.3b1454a55a5209ce6932dac599ccebd0.jpg20181109_094350.thumb.jpg.638e72982cfd8d249c24713ad5f7f328.jpg20181109_094345.thumb.jpg.5049b8a9af946120aa959dd4f21b09ce.jpgIMG_8436.thumb.JPG.3829964bf7fc4ed7975baa14b8b765d0.JPG20181105_134532.thumb.jpg.c59eb3f9b0959e86cf541f3108403451.jpg20181109_094001.thumb.jpg.c10cf97e7a0933a6b6166463f37cf307.jpgIMG_5437.thumb.JPG.5a9cecbc81224aad140ecf937ebe24ba.JPGIMG_5442.thumb.JPG.f66e40ecbaa554343b58709144680311.JPGIMG_8434.thumb.JPG.f1edd2ea5e6a523824dc4617619d7444.JPGp the sameIMG_8429.thumb.JPG.77f622894b02a379cdf6c0a02916074e.JPGIMG_8425.thumb.JPG.6e417626a93eadf6e5d2dea898251c02.JPGIMG_8427.thumb.JPG.625a7240f1cf4ae29ed33d46cd6ed0fa.JPGIMG_8426.thumb.JPG.6c060f457d171b095543d8dfbb99a946.JPGIMG_8424.thumb.JPG.af8f2c85f80759fd0c40bf88affec6d1.JPG
