Jewel of the Seas

March 2015 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Jewel of the Seas

Jewel of the Seas Review

Although the destination islands and day excursions were very enjoyable and the main reason we'd booked this ship, the ship itself had fewer amenities than what we'd previously experienced with other cruise lines.   There was no chapel for weekend church services, the inclusive dining options were minimal, noon meal at the Windjammer was sparse with meat selections, one of the pool tables would not self-level (thus we were unable to play) and the miniature golf course was in need of repair (torn and very wrinkled turf).  On a positive note, the staff were top-notch and very jovial and attentive, assuring that all on board had a wonderful experience.   Evening entertainment as also top-notch as well as all planned activities throughout the day - nice variety for all ages!!

The ship was clean and nicely decorated...good experience overall.

bk2020cruiser's Tips

St. George's, Grenada - LOVED the island tour of all the wonderful fruit trees and history/information of spices and their food and medicinal uses.
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I. - 1/2 day land tour of the island's history and rum distillary - somewhat disappointing due to driver and assistant (conflict of personalities and inappropriate humor/remarks)
Castries, St. Lucia - full day of drive-through active volcano, tour of the island and snorkeling/sailing - almost MISSED THE SHIP, though!
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - took the 1/2 day sail/snorkeling to St. John's Island (not the best for snorkeling) and browsed around St. Thomas afterwards
San Juan, Puerto Rico - spent two days each weekend to tour around San Juan and area. Old Town, forts, rain forest
