Good Value

Sail Date: October 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Lots of granite/marble as decor; lots of places to drink - good drink prices; dinner was good but the buffet lunch was average to above average; service was spotty as some cared and some did not. Everything was "plus 15% gratuity." Take the cruise and it will become a running joke with you, too. The lack of entertainment - and its timing - was astounding, the one area in which the cruise takes a hit. However, nothing is perfect and $700 for a 5 day cruise is fair and the cruise was ABSOLUTELY worth it. But they should take away cell phones from idiot passengers who want to talk during dinner! That's why I went on a cruise - to get away from that bull%&#@!!!

Pros: Beautiful Ship

Cons: Bad Entertainment

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Good to very good, but not enough locations late at night. Good luck after 11pm...just one crappy snack bar with virtually no choices. Plan ahead and bring stuff back to your room earlier and you'll be fine.
Cabin / Stateroom
Cramped. I was surprised at how tight a balcony room was.
Not enough shows and poor times scheduled. Not a deal-breaker, though.
Ship Quality
The ship was VERY CLEAN - say what you want about the rest of the cruise, but all restrooms, common areas, casino, etc. were NEVER dirty.
Service and Staff
Mostly friendly. Those that weren't were just not as friendly. None were a problem, ever.
