10 days of bliss

Sail Date: March 18, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Very impressed. Entertainment as well as activities on the ship really had something for everyone, including little ones. The ship wasn't so large that you felt exhausted just getting from one end to the other. Very new and immaculate in appearance.

Pros: a little of everything

Cons: short stays in ports

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

excellent variety available. would prefer some of the activities on ship to start a little earlier. Many were scheduled for 10:30 pm or later and we had 8am excursions to get on the next day so we passed on some we otherwise would have enjoyed attending.
Children's Programs
We didn't have children with us but we did observe the facilities available and it made us wish we had brought our granddaughter. We know she would have had a great time.
Cabin / Stateroom
they are all relatively small but very space efficient.
Service and Staff
Our dining room waiter and assistant waiter were exceptional!
Ship Quality
see above
Food and Dining
this was our 8th cruise and have cruised with 3 other cruise lines and the food and our dining experience was the very best on this cruise/ship.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
We enjoyed the Wagon Expedition in the rainforest. Our guide was excellent.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
It became quite windy the day we were there so they began to break down the cabannas and pick up your beach recliners. The majority of the guests were on the rougher part of the beach. It wasn't until we were walking back to the ship that we located the smoother, nicer area we wish we had set up at.
Don't Miss: The cruise line does set up a really nice bbq on the beach.
Colon, Panama
I thoroughly enjoyed our tour to the locks. Fastinating. The nature walk was a complete waste.
Don't Miss: Gatun Locks.
Cartagena, Colombia
