6 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 12, 2006
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship was nice, but seemed un organized. Food was so-so, not a 5 star as expected. Portions were small & I had a bad experience with the food. The crew was unattentive, but waiters were fine. My stateroom attendant did not leave ice & towels as we asked. Solarium was nice, but everyone wanted the one small pool on the ship...too crowded. Boarding was fine & we did Express departure which was good. Not sure if I'd do another Royal Caribbean again.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Layout was good. The shops were small but it was easy to get around except for the elevators which were only on one side of the ship & never stopped when you wanted them. Took time to get up & down.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Stateroom was OK...the norm, but did seem smaller. Needed a few more drawers.

Big difference from last year. They did a great job repairing the port & shops. Everyone was nice & organized...so were the trips.
