Norwegian Jewel Main Dining Rooms

Norwegian Cruise Line created Freestyle Dining -- a flexible approach to dining in the restaurant of your choice, at the time that is convenient for you. The main dining rooms, The Azura and The Tsar's Palace, are the largest restaurants on the Norwegian Jewel. You can almost always show up without a reservation and be seated right away.

The Azura:

NCL_dining_SummerPalaceFamilyThe Azura restaurant on the Norwegian Jewel is located mid ship on Deck 6. The Azura is the Norwegian Jewel's smaller main dining room, and is appointed in blue, purple, and deep yellow hues.

The Tsar's Palace:

Norwegian Jewel's Tsar's Palace restaurant transports you to 19th century Russia. Burgundy hues with green and gold accents, and clusters of faux Faberge eggs complete the décor. The Tsar's Palace dining room on the Norwegian Jewel is located aft on Deck 6.

Guest Reviews of the Norwegian Jewel's Main Dining Rooms

  • Both main dining rooms on Norwegian Jewel have recently received good to excellent reviews for food quality.
  • The Azura's more contemporary look, in comparison to the opulence of Tsar's Palace, has been a little disappointing for some. However, keep in mind that both restaurants serve the same menu -- this is simply a matter of preference in decor.
