We've cruised over a dozen times on four different cruise lines. Three or four with Royal Caribbean. This was our first on the Jewel of the Seas. We couldn't be happier with how everything went. great value, very clean stateroom, outstanding service everywhere and overall great attentiveness by the staff.

The ports were excellent and, again, we couldn't be happier. The ship is very clean and well kept. And the food was definitely above average. I had the best steak in years at Chops specialty restaurant. Done just perfectly. The cruise director on this ship was exceptional. He was the best of all the cruises we have taken. He really deserves kudos for all of his hard work and talent. His name is Dennis Charles.

The Windjammer was excellent all week for breakfast and lunch service. Food quality was very good and the service even better. I found a speck of something on a new fork one morning and returned for a clean one and not less than three different people came over to us to apologize and even wanted our stateroom number so they could send us something. I insisted that wasn't necessary.. But was really impressed with how seriously they took what I felt was a very minor matter.
