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 truly enjoyed the layout of the ship. With seating on every floor surrounding the centrum, the entertainment on deck 4 could be heard clearly on every level. The adults only pool and whirlpool was exceptional. We spent hours there every day where it was quiet and comfortable. The show put on by the singers and dancers was one of the best production shows we have seen on any ship. However, the rest of the theater entertainment was poor. We were so embarrassed for the opening night comedian we had to leave. The "man of a 1,000 voices" was just OK. We don't do jugglers. The food in the main dining room was a little disappointing. There was no escargot which we look forward to when we cruise on RCL and many of the other main menu dishes were not appealing. Virtually everything else about the cruise was exceptional.
