Review Summary

Our 7 day New England/Canada cruise on Jewel of the Seas was wonderful! The ship is kept in excellent condition and showing very little wear. Missed some of the little amenities on other ships, but Crown and Anchor made up for it by showering us with gifts every other day.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main dining menu was always very good though the seating was too early at 5:30pm. Chops and Portofino specialty restaurants were outstanding and well worth the extra $$.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Great variety of entertainment. The "Crew Talent Show" was an enjoyable addition. Our cruise director, Clo, was wonderful.
