A nice cruise of New England

Sail Date: September 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Good cruise. A lot of a la carte upcharges. Shore excursions were professional and a real treat. Most people were very pleasant. We were however left feeling a little short. We got a little frustrated with everyone telling us they usually do 12 day cruises making you feel lesser for not doing a longer cruise.

Pros: Shore excursions were great!

Cons: Food was weak unless you paid extra for a specialty restaurant.

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Very nice smooth ship. Elevators seemed to have a strange programming lack of response. Smoke areas seem to be heavy with smoke.
Food and Dining
The buffets and small cafes were institutional type food. Chops Grille was fantastic for a fee.
Cabin / Stateroom
Beautiful spacious suite.
Service and Staff
The guest relations staff was top notch. With a few stellar exceptions, most staff lacked the level of service I would expect on a grand ship.
The entertainment lacked any significant headliners.
