First time on a cruise and loved it.

Sail Date: January 03, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was the first cruise for my wife and I.  We really enjoyed our vacation on the Jewell.

We had great service from all of the employees and enjoyed the food at the Tides dinning room 

the Windjammer buffet.  The entertainment was good and there were plenty of things to do 

on the ship and on shore excursions.  

Overall, it was a very good experience and we would recommend the Jewell for those looking

for a nice vacation.  

Ship Quality
It is beginning to show some wear and tear. TV's need to be upgraded to flat screens. It would be good to have wi-fi on the boat at no charge.
Food and Dining
We enjoyed the food, but we are not connoisseurs by any stretch of the imagination.
Service and Staff
Our room attendant Ronnie did a nice job. The nights we dinned in the Tides, our servers were very attentive.
We enjoyed most of the shows and the entertainment around the ship.
Onboard Activities
Lots of stuff to do.
Destinations and Excursions
We used the shore excursions on each of the stops and thought they were very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was very nice considering the size. Having a balcony made the trip.


If you like to drink a lot, a beverage package may be something to consider. The cost of a beer is around $6.00, a mixed drink $7.00, and a glass of wine $7.00. FYI: gratuity's are added on for any purchases you make at the bar.
