Fantastic Cruise!!!

Sail Date: October 09, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

Pros: Itinerary

Cons: uncomfortable theater seats

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Great ship size and in good shape.
Food and Dining
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 $$.
Service and Staff
Friendly staff. Always had a smile.
Cabin / Stateroom
Had an ocean view cabin which was narrow but adequate.
Ample storage/closet space with plenty of hangers. No flat screen TV.
Great variety of entertainment. The "Crew Talent Show" was an enjoyable addition. Our cruise director, Clo, was wonderful.
Portland, Maine
Best of Portland and Kennebunkport was an excellent excursion with a wonderful guide offered by RC.
Don't Miss: architecture and the lighthouse. Also the Bush compound
Bar Harbor, Maine
Enjoyed nature and some shopping at this port. Had to be tendered in. Purchased tour tickets at "Testa's" for 1/2 the price.
Don't Miss: Acadia National Park
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Took a 7 hr. tour "10 Best of Halifax" with an excellent guide offered by RC. Was so worth it.
Don't Miss: Peggy's Cove
Saint John, New Brunswick
Took a 1 hr. city tour with a short look at the "Reversing Falls" (missed it) offered by RC. Wouldn't recommend.
