Room Type: Oceanview

Very clean, great service, great food, nice gym and athletic activities, good entertainment, very friendly, I would definitely go on this ship again; pricy internet, excursions and drinks made it just shy of perfect. Not quite the party boat so not much for singles....this cruise catered more to mature adults but is a very classy ship! Well worth it!

Pros: gym, food, service, friendliness, entertainment, excursions were all great, clean rooms, a top notch cruise

Cons: cost of excursions, drinks and internet service a bit unreasonable, not much of a party and very little singles interaction: mostly for well settled or mature couples

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

more for mature adults and couples and not much for partiers or singles
Ship Quality
This is a great ship
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Cartagena, Colombia
not enough time (1/2 day on this cruise) to really get to know this city and traffic makes it difficult to get around quickly, but Colombia is culturally rich and very friendly to Americans.
Colon, Panama
The canal is an awesome sight and the ship locks are worth seeing in action
Don't Miss: canal and locks
George Town, Grand Cayman
One of the best beaches in the world and top quality but expensive
Don't Miss: 7 Mile Beach, scuba, snorkelling
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
very friendly and lots of different options for nature at its best
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
Lots of activities but all are controlled by Royal Caribbean; not a problem since all are professionally done and safe; a bit pricy but it was one of the more entertaining stops
Don't Miss: zip line
