Jewel of the Seas is a real jewel!

Sail Date: February 01, 2014

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Our experience onboard the Jewel of the Seas was sweet!  JOS is a smaller ship, more intimate, less crowded and allows for a very laid back experience versus the mega ships.  Depending on your appetite for things to do, if your looking to less activities and more relaxation, this ship is right up your alley.  There is still plenty of things to do but mere size reduces those activities up against the mega ships.  We sailed from San Juan, Puerto Rico to the Southern Caribbean.  The airport experience at San Juan was not a good experience on this trip.  They lost our luggage as we had planned to stay 2 nights pre cruise at the Hotel Plaza De Armas in Old San Juan.  We had to be without our luggage for 24 hours and pick it up ourselves at the airport.  But once onboard the Jewel of the Seas, all was forgotten.  The cruise experience was outstanding.  Again, we had 7 people and 4 cabins onboard this ship.  Three of the balconies opened up to one another as we were side by side.  The other cabin was not close to us.  The Jewel is a sweet cruise and I would return in a heartbeat.
