After going on 3 cruises with a competitor, I must admit that I enjoy the competitor more. Although comparing the two cruise lines point by point on specific items would result in similar ratings, there was an undiscernable "something" that made me enjoy the other line more. In addfiton, it was a little more costly to go on this cruise than with the other line and I don't feel it was worth the price difference.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food selection and quality was somewhat better than the other cruise line I've experienced.


3 out of 5
Lots of activities but difficult to figure out the "where and when".

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Lower ranking staff seemed to try really hard to please, but higher ranking staff were a bit "stiff".

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
It was a beautiful ship but no more beautiful than any other. On one occasion I was given an obviously dirty fork and at another meal, I requested a cup of coffee and the cup had a lipstick mark on the rim.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5

Pros: I enjoyed the warm, sunny weather and just being on that beautiful blue water.

Cons: This cruise line has a different "feel" that I didn't like as much as the other cruise line I've used. The crew was more "stuffy" or something. The competition crew seemed to be more fun.

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
