The crossing of the Panama Canal

Sail Date: April 03, 2009

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

I liked the ship because there is elegance amd good taste in the making of it.
The cabins were nice and spacious but not about the bathrooms. The size of this room makes me wonder how somebody who is moderely overweight could use it and enjoy it. The most dissapointing aspect of the whole cruise was the food served. I have been in some other ships where the food was superb, I was expecting the same about this ship; to my big surprise it did not stand to be compare to the other cruises. The only redeeming point was the excelent service provided by the waiters and waitresses. I am trying to understand the reason for the steel band as a form of entertainment, because after being at sea for one day the music became boring and predictable. Speaking about music the person in charge of the music selection at the Vortex
had no idea of how to fufilled his job on making the dance experience enjoyable. A good point was the ambiance at the Solarium.

Pros: The ship design.and some of the human elements.

Cons: The served at the Tides and Windjamer and some of the music played at the nightclubs.

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
