Set Your Expectations Properly & Enjoy

Sail Date: October 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Staff was friendly and attempted to be helpful, but don't expect other than ordinary dining experiences.

Pros: Decoration of the Ship -- Layout of the Cabin -- Solarium

Cons: Nickle-and-dimeing; quality of restaurant food

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship decor was warm and inviting\, and public and private areas were clean and well maintained.
Food and Dining
Average to less than average restaurant food (not really cuisine).
Cabin / Stateroom
Tiny bathroom and shower\, as expected\, but layout was good\, with sitting area inboard and beds at the outside next to the windows. Charging for in-room dining is a definate NEGATIVE\, though
Service and Staff
Pleasant and friendly throughout.
Lots to do and see\, as expected. Cruise director (Dennis Charles) and staff were fun\, but stage shows were ordinary.
