  I submit that the Jewel, as all 'Radiance Class" ships, is the best designed out there. Just the right size and kept clean and beautiful  Capt and crew top notch.  The cruise was sold out yet we never felt crowded.   The singers, dancers, and band were best I've ever seen on a cruise ship. Comedians so-so. Food was consistently very good.  Best on shore trip was purchased from, the Aruba snorkle.  Except for the shows, the on board activitties were a little weak.  Overall the cruise was best ever.

Ship Quality
They said it was due for rehab. Looked absolutely beautiful to me
Food and Dining
Good quality. Could be hotter They should nuke on way to table
Service and Staff
All top notch
Singers, dancers, and band superior
Onboard Activities
A tad weak and often disorganized.....trivia lousy material
Destinations and Excursions
Love my snorkling.......not much else in SoCarib
Cabin / Stateroom
Not very large but very efficiently set up and clean
San Juan, Puerto Rico
great idea to take the bus tour from the ship to the airport
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Lots of cab and ferry expense and time to get to StJohns for best beaches
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Didn't do any looks awfully poor
Oranjestad, Aruba
Best beaches and snorkle trip
Willemstad, Curacao
More great snorkling
