5 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 02, 2012
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
I liked the size of the ship, lots to do and see and it didn't feel too crowded 90% of the time. The food was excellent, room service was great- even excessive at times. We'd leave our room for an hour to grab some food and come back to find the bed made, which was nice, only we left our clothes and things scattered all over it not expecting anyone to come by. The room was pretty cramped but comfortable- the port hole was really nice to sit and just watch the sea. Some of the activities I felt were over priced- bingo was fun but it cost about $75, granted one person did win a free cruise and cash prizes were around $200 but only 4-5 of the 100+ players won anything. Photographers on board were nice, lots of great photos but they wanted $20 each for a 5x7, no thanks.

Pretty small for two people but there was good closet and drawer space- You sure need it!

Pros: Crew was great, loved the shore excursions!

Cons: 5 Nights is not enough!
