December 2015 - Jewel of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern
We had a great experience on the Jewel of the Seas. This itinerary put us in a different port nearly every day. The islands were beautiful. Each one had its own charm. Port days were a little short, but we had plenty of time to get a flavor of each island. There was a delay docking in Barbados, but the Captain extended our stay to give us more time there.
The service on the Jewel of the Seas was exceptional. We were spoiled by the good care we received from our waiter, Sucorro. The staff accommodated my wife's need to eat gluten free. They all understood what is required to prepare gluten free meals.
The embarkation was the best we have experienced of any cruise line. There were no long lines to check-in. Our cabin was ready and our luggage delivered quickly after we boarded. The cab dropped us off at the terminal at noon and by 2 p.m. we were settled in our cabin and exploring the ship.
