Great Christmas cruise!

Sail Date: December 01, 2013

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was very clean\, nicely decorated\, and there was always something to do or somewhere to explore.

Pros: Ports\, food\, the ship

Cons: Main dinning room eating times

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
It was just large enough\, not too huge. With all the stops we made we still didn't have time to explore everything on the ship.
Food and Dining
Windjammer was great food. We always found good we enjoyed. The service is poor in there. I saw waiters waiting on other tables and getting them drinks and only one night did we have someone ask us if we needed anything\, yet they walked by us every meal. Main dinning room was nice\, 3 course dinning but we got given the 8:30 time which I thought was ok at first but it got to be soooo late most nights we were starving by dinner and ate in the buffet most nights. A 7:30 time would have been perfect. Dinner in there also took 1.5 hours which is long to be at a table and make conversation with people you don't know. It's ok a few nights but 7 nights would have been hard to keep up conversation.
Cabin / Stateroom
For the size of the staterooms they are layed out very well with a lot of storage. Very clean\, decor was fine. Flat screen tv. No issues with our room. Our attendant was amazing. Danielle Baptiste ... She should be recognized .
Service and Staff
Great staff\, always helpful
Loved to entertainment by the pool. Sail away party with drinks always fun! Loved that part.
