8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 22, 2008
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 10 years ago

overall good cruise and a nice ship, dinning rooms over crowded and not enough deck chairs to lay on or lay with your family by pool. Casino is not smoke free, though it did offer some non smoking nights. Showes and room attendants where wonderful. Rock climbing always fun. My teens loved it, however my 11 year old had very little to do, did not care for their explorer program for kids her age.

Service and Staff

some where exceptional and the dinningroom needs work.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
very clean convient layout, needs larger public areas, lobbies and dinning room. Waiters are trying to handle too many tables so you do not get first rate service.

Cabin / Stateroom

Nothing is there, if you had a snorkoling tour it might have been ok, it is very underdeveloped with pushy people all around.
Don't Miss: skip this island

We prefered the docks by the city that you could stroll through the streets, the new port is strip malls all in one parking lot, not very island like.
