It was a very relaxing adventure.

Sail Date: October 26, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Jewel of the Seas was very impressive. Our stateroom and balcony were very adequate. The attendant team did a wonderful job of keeping everything neet and tidy and they added a lot of humorous touches to our stay. The dining room and its staff were excellant and the meals were fantastic. The Windjammer buffet and the other snack areas were always available, too available and the food was always top notch. The night clubs were fun, we especially enjoyed the Safari Lounge and the Captians Reception. The entertainment was very good and enjoyable even with the return trip.

I will say this, our Captain was very skilled. Even with a rough return he made what could have a been a very bad experience into more of an adventure. Even with the rough seas both of us would have gotten right back on board for another cruise. This was our first cruise and we look forward to many more.

Pros: There were many things but the ship overall was beautiful.

Cons: The weather on the return.

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
The maintenace and room attendant teams did an excellent job even with tough conditions.
Food and Dining
The food was always excellant and very plentiful. If there is any downside to the food it is not its quality but its quantity.
Cabin / Stateroom
This is tough for me to rate. I am 6' 5" and 300 lbs so anything is small to me. I found the stateroom to be more than adequate to relax and sleep in, and the balcony was an added bonus. But of course, the shower was a bit of a challenge due to my height and size but I adapted to it quite easily.
Service and Staff
Both the dining room staff and room attendant team were exceptional.
Entertainment
If there is one drawback to the entertainment and activities is that there is not enough time in the day.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Save King's Wharf for your last day. Try some snorkeling at Snorkel Beach, it's the hidden jewel of King's Wharf. Get the Bus/Ferry pass right away and take a ride on the south route with all the beach stops. Horseshoe Bay is a must see, go to the far end away from the concession stand and explore the rocks and small caves. If you are into shopping and architecture then take the ferry to Hamilton. Take the time to explore many of the small parks troughout Hamilton. Then take the bus back to Kings's Wharf.
