10 Night Ultimate Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 18, 2011
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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.


5 out of 5
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

5 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our dining room waiter and assistant waiter were exceptional!

We enjoyed the Wagon Expedition in the rainforest. Our guide was excellent.

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed our tour to the locks. Fastinating. The nature walk was a complete waste.
Don't Miss: Gatun Locks.
