Generally enjoyed the cruise

Sail Date: October 08, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was safe and clean, and the staff service was very good. The food in the Tides Dining room was average. On lobster night, the lobsters were TINY...and this was a New England cruise. The TV channel viewing options were poor...with more options suited for a European guest than USA guests.

Pros: Bar Harbor and Halifax

Cons: onbooard enterrainment; two sea days, poor TV viewing options

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Food in TIDES Dining was average at best. Service was good, but the quality and preparation/presentation of the food was lacking. The Windjammer Buffet and SeaView Cafe food options/presenation was consistently very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
TV viewing options were poor.
Service and Staff
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Hop On-Hop-Off tour was very good.
Saint John, New Brunswick
Bar Harbor, Maine
Acadia National Forest tour was Excellent.
Portland, Maine
The Best of Portland and Kennebuckport Tour was poor. Too much time in Portland residential areas with too little time spent in Kennebuckport.
