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%@!!!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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.

Not enough shows and poor times scheduled. Not a deal-breaker, though.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Mostly friendly. Those that weren't were just not as friendly. None were a problem, ever.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
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.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cramped. I was surprised at how tight a balcony room was.

Pros: Beautiful Ship

Cons: Bad Entertainment

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
