4 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 13, 2012
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

We are Emerald Crown and Anchor members(11 RCCL cruises). Service was outstanding as always. Friendly staff on all parts of ship. However, the food was atrocious. Windjammer food was the worst. I had an over easy egg and when I cut into it the white part ran out(Raw). Food was cold and selection was the same every morning.Tides dining room selection was minimal and not up to RCCL quality. I don't cruise for the food, but this was so bad I had to say something. We also sailed the Oasis and Monarch this year and food was outstanding as always. The Jewel needs to improve. The passengers were middle age to seniors and all exreemly nice-no problems or rudeness. We are loyal Crown members and will sail many more times-just not on the Jewel.
