The Garden Cafe

With so many bars and lounges to discover, finding your favourite may take a few days. Pop some bubbly and toast to the good life inside Magnum’s Champagne & Wine Bar. Kick back with a cocktail then dance it out at Spinnaker Lounge. Or work on perfecting your tan as you relax poolside at Topsiders Bar. Whether you are looking to meet up with friends or make new ones, there is always an opportunity to mix it up.

When it comes to the entertainment on Norwegian Jewel, there is never a dull moment. Enjoy a magical evening watching a magician and comedy show. Get mesmerized by awe-inspiring acrobatics or groove to the music of the psychedelic 70’s during the Band on the Run performance. With Norwegian, it is show time all the time.
