7 Night Canada/New England (Boston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 23, 2010
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Reviewed: 7 years ago
This is the second time in six months I have traveled on The jewel of the seas. my first was transatlantic in may. The most recent was Oct. 2010. I appreciate the size of the Jewel, not too small, or too big. The jewel is well kept, clean & still shining upon the waves. The buffet is reasonable in food quality. The food selections are mostly boring, always the same foods every day & the fish is always dried out. the casino on both trips was just bad in services. The slot machines were highly unreliable without service techs to come to assist whatsoever & the waiter service was non existent. On most is almost annoyed by the drink service requests. On this ship if you want a drink one has to stop playing & go to the bar to get a beverage. the cabin & attendant was very good. The entertainment is always good on RCCL. The fun level needs improvement on this ship. I do not think I would sail on the Jewel in the future, as two times was enough for me.

Food and Dining

food is reasonable, however I expected greater quality,selections & diversity. Lesser priced cruise lines had higher selection & quality preparations & food selections.

loved the magician, comedy was boring. dancing was very entertaining. lounge musicians could only work on cruise ships. no one would pay to hear them play off ship.
