Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Modern and well maintained. Nice size to get around to decks, restaurants and rooms.
Food and Dining
Amazing variety of food, lots of room for family of 7 to find tables together indoors or outside in the warm breeze. Fresh, healthy and deliceous choices. Formal dining room had exceptional service and food selections. Desserts were amazing!
Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice to have a balcony to enjoy sea breezes, sun rises and entries into port. Quiet place to read and have morning coffee. Plenty of space to unpack and store clothes.
Service and Staff
Very friendly and helpful staff, all questions and needs fulfilled. Most seemed to be happy and enjoyed their jobs. Multi-cultural staff gave international flair to the cruise.
Nightly shows were great with a good variety of comedy, music and dance.
Courses were a lot of fun too such as jewelry-making, towel animal folding etc.
Not many courses for men though. Would like to learn how to carve fancy fruits and vegetable sculptures used in buffet dining areas.
