Sail Date: December 01, 2012
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship itself is beautiful\, clean\, and well-maintained. The crew\, particularly the servers in the special restaurants and in the Vortex Club\, was amazingly friendly and welcoming. We had an especially great meal at Chops on Christmas evening: Food was superb\, service was excellent\, ambiance was warm and relaxing. My wife and I have cruised several times on several different lines\, and we agree that this is the most pleasant shipboard experience we've ever had.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
In the special restaurants the food was excellent and the service very accomodating. In the main dining room\, the portions were very small\, the dishes mediocre\, and the service rushed.


3 out of 5
The entertainment aboard was \"so-so\"\, and so we spent most evening in the dance club.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
With the single exception of the young man distributing towels at the pool\, every staff member with whom we interacted was fantastic.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a small (junior) suite with a balcony on the stern of the ship\, and it was excellent.

Pros: Service\, staff\, cleanliness\, courtesy

Cons: Except for the special restaurants (Portofino and Chops)\, the food was mediocre.

Recommends Jewel of the Seas? Yes!
