New England Boston Trip

Sail Date: October 07, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

I have a very good overall impression of the ship and would gladly sail on it again. Just about the right size. I would never care to board one of the mega monstrosities they are building these days. In the past, we've used Holland-America and this ship compares favorably but for the negatives I mentioned earlier.

Pros: Great ship! Best features were the service and the dining.

Cons: The Centrum constantly had loud activities that\, because it is an open atrium\, spread upwards\, making quiet reading or conversation nearly impossible. The library was sad--few books and little space to read.

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Loved the ship's very own band. Great for listening and dancing. The other activities (games/contests and the like are just not our choice\, but we understand that many do like these things.)
