8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 18, 2006
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago

The Overall impressions of the ship were OK. The ship does not have the amenities the larger ships do.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Overall food was average. At times, the food was lukewarm and sometimes even cold. Breakfast in the dining room was horrible. The wait staff couldn't get it together. Additionally, our order was not fulfilled on three different occasions. Coffee re-fills couldn't be had and wait staff were nowhere to be found.

Service and Staff

After my facial and massage, the staff person tried very hard to sell me many dollars in products. After I told them I'd think about it, this person dismissed me and was rude.

Cabin / Stateroom

Stateroom was fine. Everything was clean, but the room was drabby.

We've been there before and decided it wasn't worth getting off the ship.

Better than last time. The people on the island weren't so aggressive.

Was better than last time, but if I never went back to the Bahamas, I wouldn't be sad.
