Cruise to Bermuda on Jewell of the Seas

Sail Date: October 26, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is subtle and classy in every way. Starting with the Centrum with it 's two, 3-4 story thin colored waterfalls on the walls, glass elevators to see the ocean as your riding up/down, the Safari Lounge with it's mahogony woodwork, chess & backgammon tables, pool tables that are self-leveling (very interesting to watch during rough seas - the balls stayed completely level while the table moved up, down & sideways!), perfect tropical setting, adult only, Solarium with heated pool, piped in bird & cricket sounds, retractable mirrored roof, Pit Stop sports bar with numerous televisions and constant sports games/shows, fun casino - I won $1,100 the first night at sea and we heard of a lot of others winning throughout the 5 day trip!

Pros: beautiful decor throughout, windows/views everywhere!

Cons: awning under our cabin balcony-cut out our view of straight down to the ocean

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship is sparkling clean, nice open public areas, wonderful glass windows everywhere!
The entertainment was ok but we have seen better on other RC cruises. We felt that maybe since this was a charterd ship cruise, that the better entertainment was put off until the regular cruises. We were disappointed there was not a Shore talk on the excursions for Bermuda.
Food and Dining
Windjammer buffet always had numerous selections for lunch & dinner. Can order room service on cabin tv or by calling.
Cabin / Stateroom
Balcony stateroom was nice. We had enough room in the closets to hang our clothes plus keep our luggage in the bottom.
Service and Staff
Friendly and attentive staff.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
A must see are the South Shore beaches. Stunning blue & torquoise waters, soft, pink spotted beaches. Buy a bus/ferry pass to get around the island. Hamilton has a lot of shopping areas. Clocktower Mall in the Dockyard. Snorkle Park also in the back area of the Dockyard with outdoor bar and small beach area.
Don't Miss: Fort Hamilton and it's tropical garden moat
