The Jewel of the Seas is a lovely cruise ship. This was our first cruise and we were very impressed by the quality and cleanliness of this ship. We have two small children and used the Adventure Ocean Kids Club - it was great. The cabin we chose (superior room with balcony) fit our family of four very well. We were always greeted with warm, friendly smiles and felt very well taken care of. The food was fantastic! The entertainment we viewed was top notch. Our only complaint (and it is a small one) is that a lot of fun things didn't start until after 10:30 - which is hard for parents of small children to partake in. We will definitely cruise again with Royal Caribbean.
