October 2015 - Jewel of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern
We enjoyed our adventure on this beautiful ship. I was nervous about the number of passengers ( 2,500 ) but it never seemed crowded except at the wonderful Halloween party! The bars and restaurants were good, and there was wonderful music everywhere. Getting on and off was well orchestrated , except the lines for and ordeal of customs when re-entering, and the ship can't fix that.
The pools were warm and clean and there were lots of activities. Food was good, but the dining room was usually closed for lunch and I hate buffets. Entertainment was very good. On the down side, it is clear that the line has cut back . No robes in the balcony rooms. No chocolates in the evening at turndown, no tea in the afternoon, and no baked Alaska the last night. I will probably choose another line next time. Celebrity's service is better as is the food. For the $, however, this was a very good value.
