Just the right size ship for a first cruise. Easy to learn your way around and see it all. All of the staff was great. Plenty of activities for the time on board.

Food and Dining

Plenty of options for dining- casual to formal. Food was plentiful and taste was great. Portions allowed your to taste many different things.

There was always something to do or watch. The shows were as good as Broadway shows.

We did not have an opportunity to use this service, but we did tour the facilities and were impressed.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All staff was working hard to please. On our first morning we asked our stateroom attendant for some ice. After that our room was never without fresh ice.I really appreciated that.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had chosen an inside stateroom for our first cruise. Although is it was small., it met all our needs. We really did not spend a lot of time in our room.

Pros: Relaxed atmosphere

Cons: We had an inside room

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
