Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Not wild about the food. It was just not that tasty and there were extra charges in dining room for filet mignon and I had never seen that before on a cruise. Windjammer was same old food, too much curry, pizza too cheesy, just not wonderful


5 out of 5
Good, but too many trivia games, what happened to jeopardy and pictionary. The "Unexpected Boys" who did a Jersey boys type musical were great. The love and marriage game was hilarious

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Lorenzo in the champagne bar was great as was Rosselino and AMal in dining room. Also loved our cabin attendant Lloyd, super efficient and so affable.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
So clean and well maintained. Lovely decor, a little of a bottleneck in some areas

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stateroom, right in front of ship with two HUGE windows and over 300 square feet...no complaints

Portland is a very charming site, but our lighthouse tour was just so, so.
Don't Miss: Hit the downtown area and the great bars....lots of breweries

Very rainy miserable day, but we enjoyed seeing the bay of fundy
Don't Miss: bay of fundy

Best port of all....we took a walk up the hill to the Citadel and spent a lot of time there...didn't have enough time to go to Maritime Museum. Peggy's Cove was nice but I think I would have spent more time in the town of Halifax
Don't Miss: Citadel
5 out of 5
The waste of time was visiting the College of the Atlantic and going to hear the lobster guy...would have liked more time iin Acadia park at the top of mountain
Don't Miss: Cadillac mountain view was great

Pros: Our stateroom

Cons: very narrow walking paths in some area such as the solarium.

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
