7 Night Canada/New England (Boston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 08, 2011
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
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.

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.
