Too much commercialism, up-charges for everything
Jewel of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Southern
Sail Date: December 28, 2013
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 4 years ago
Quality of food was just not up to standards. Ask to pay $25/meal per person to get reasonable options. For family of 4 this was not an option for us. We paid a lot to go on trip expecting to have reasonably good food. The general feeling of commercialism around every corner was really a turn off for us. We paid a higher price to go on what we thought was a little higher quality brand. I would recommend really reading reviews and adding those extra costs to the base price before making a decision. To get to the level of service we have receive on previous cruises I would have had to add at least 50% to 80% to our base price.
