12 Night Transatlantic Eastbound (Ft. Lauderdale To Amsterdam)
Sail Date: April 15, 2007
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Ship is very new, a big plus for us was there is a lot of public areas inside when we had bad weather (4 days of our trans-Atlantic crossing); some older ships this would have been a problem. Overall the food was very good, but they did a bad job on any Itialian food. We enjoyed all of the ports of call, especially Falmouth England.
At only one port did we need to use tenders to get ashore, the ship would NOT rent any extra tenders, so a lot of people had to wait in very long lines to get back to the ship, we waited 1-1/4 hours, some at our table wated over two hours, all of us standing in the hot sun.

This is where we had to use tenders, but the ship would NOT rent any extra.
Don't Miss: Pendennis Castle.

Hard to choose between the Normandy Beaches and Paris.

Pros: Beautiful ship, great service & people

Cons: They clearly do NOT know how to run a launch service if they cannot dock.

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
