Recommends Jewel of the Seas? No.

Food and Dining
Food was great one day, horrible the next. Very inconsistent.
Cabin / Stateroom
I was ok with the small size of the room, but the bathroom was pathetically small and irritated me. Taking a shower was quite a task.
Service and Staff
Majority of the staff were just "ok"; there were some very rude room attendants, and guest services people. Bartender told me he was on board for 7 months and never saw it so crowded, so the staff was overwhelmed. Perhaps they should have gotten more staff on board to accommodate the amount of people on this cruise. It was over New Year's Eve.
