Norwegian Jewel is NCL's first of
four Jewel-class ships. She was followed in 2006 by Norwegian Jade (originally Pride
of Hawaii) and Norwegian Pearl, and then in 2007 by Norwegian Gem. Each ship
has unique amenities, but has a similar exterior and interior design.
Norwegian Jewel was preceded at NCL
by two Libra-class ships; Norwegian Star, which entered service in 2001, and Norwegian
Dawn, which entered service in 2002. Although the Libra-class ships have a
similar exterior appearance to the Jewel class, there are significant interior
and amenity differences that merit their different class designation.
Norwegian Jewel sails from Seattle,
Washington and Los Angeles, California.
