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.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The buffets and small cafes were institutional type food. Chops Grille was fantastic for a fee.


3 out of 5
The entertainment lacked any significant headliners.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
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.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very nice smooth ship. Elevators seemed to have a strange programming lack of response. Smoke areas seem to be heavy with smoke.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Beautiful spacious suite.

Pros: Shore excursions were great!

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

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
