Southern Caribbean Holiday
Sail Date: July 19, 2014
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 8527
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The ship was very clean and on the small side. The cruise director, cabin attendant were awesome as were the wait staff in every restaurant. Chops and Portafino were amazing and the food in these specialty restaraunts was superb! The dining room food and the food in the Windjammer was ok. Not the variety that we have had on previous cruises. The main pool area was small and therefore got very congested during activities. The comedians were hysterical but the productions shows were a little 'out there' and I actually left during one of them. The centrum was nice and they always had music playing at night but, again, crowded with lots of people so never a seat to be had. Did take the stair a lot due to elevator congestion but that could be considered good exersice and help prohibit those cruise pounds you gain. Loved the ports we stopped in. Also enjoyed having a full day in each port. The Segway tour on Barbados was amazing and the veiws were breathtaking.

Felt a little harassed by locals at some markets. You have to be very firm with them if you are not interested in what they are selling.
