New England and Canada Cruise

Sail Date: October 21, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We recently sailed on the Jewel of the Seas, the New England/Canada Cruise and it was our first cruise.
We really enjoyed the time spent on this cruise. Our friends, who are experienced Royal Caribbean cruisers, travelled with us. This was great because we were able to sit at a table for 4 each evening and they gave us helpful information about cruising.
The staff was exellant. We were thoroughly amazed at how smoothly everything went from arrival to departure. Royal Caribbean really has their act together.
The only criticism was in the air systems -- the hallways in the cabin areas carried unpleasant odors. Also, we felt that when you are paying for a cocktail, a small snack of nuts or chips should be offered and that usually works out well for the vendor as the snack makes the consumer thirsty and perhaps an additional cocktail would be sold.
Also, a night light should be standard in the bathroom areas of the cabins -- many people have to get up during the night and the rooms are very dark, so a simple night light installed in the bathroom would be very helpful to the guests.
All-in-all it was a great experience and we will cruise again.

Pros: Beautiful ship, good accommodations, good food, great staff

Cons: Odors in cabin area hallways; no snacks offered when having cocktails; no night lights in bathroom areas

Ship Quality
Everything about the quality of the ship was good except the odors as mentioned above.
Cabin / Stateroom
As mentioned above, a night light should be installed in the bathrooms.

We took the double-decker bus tour and learned a lot about Halifax from the tour guild. It was very good.
