Pushed alcohol consumption way too much

Sail Date: December 15, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Right off the bat, we were encouraged to buy alcohol. There were too many "extras" that required more charges. I'm not a regular Bingo player but I was astonished it cost almost $50 for my daughter and I to play the basic game for 1 hour. The shore excursion to Tulum was well worth the price though and the food was good but the staff wasn't particularly attentive especially after they received their gratuities

Pros: food was good

Cons: too many extras that had to be paid for; some unattentive staff

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Service and Staff
No one went above and beyond and some were even less helpful than that, especially after the tips were doled out
Singers were great and dancers were very good . The revue show content wasn't phenomenal but was pleasing. The comedian was so so but comedy is't my first interest anyway
Ship Quality
I liked havig a large area too walk off all the calories I consumed
Food and Dining
I enjoyed the food but the service was lacking. The bar staff, where the free drinks were located, was consistently inattentive (maybe because they didn't receive tips).
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom attendant was lovely and gracious
