Jewel of the Seas

September 2016 - Jewel of the Seas to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Western Mediterranean in 8 days

We liked cabin location on deck 7; liked having the balcony with great views.  The solarium was very relaxing; really enjoyed my massage in the spa.  We agree our favorite evening was the one we spent at the "Chef's Table".  We met some wonderful people on board; both other cruisers as well as Royal Caribbean employees.  

An area that could be improved; based on other cruises I have taken, this one seemed to have a large number photo ops, but not much time or thought was taken or given to the quality of the shots.  

Quality of food at the Windjammer Cafe was not the best that I have experienced on previous cruises or vacations.

The shows, entertainment options and drink package were all satisfactory.

btcalendine's Tips

Valencia, Spain - The bike tour we was excellent; the guide spoke excellent English and did a fabulous job showing us the city sites.
Barcelona, Spain - Barcelona History and Desserts Walking Tour was great fun; really enjoyed; would highly recommend. The Picasso walking, although interesting was too long and we were not able to stay for the museum tour.
Naples, Italy - Amalfi Coast tour was fantastic; small group, excellent guide; awesome lunch with a fantastic view overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
Ajaccio, Corsica - Difficult to find a shore excursion. If you go to the open air market, be sure to buy while you are there because they close early afternoon.
