Jewel of the Seas - A Voyage to Remember

Sail Date: November 01, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

Having cruised many times in the past we found this ship and its crew to be generally excellent. We stayed in a grand suite which made our time in the cabin really sweet. We also really enjoyed the Concierge Club experience each day and having a dedicated person to take care of our every need - Mr Diego Tripaldi - a real asset. The destinations were top shelf and except for a few days of lousy weather everything else was just great. The food was on par with our expectations - lots of variety - well prepared - always plentiful. The ship was very clean, well maintained, and comfortably appointed throughout.

Diego Tripaldi the Concierge was awesome!
Food and Dining
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Just OK - do the fort tour - very cool - but not much else to see. San Juan beaches are fair - much better places on the island if you decide to stay for extra days.
Bridgetown, Barbados
Castries, St. Lucia
St. John's, Antigua
Prepare to be bombarded by cabbies - very persistent and annoying. We got lucky and picked the third barrage and the guy was fun.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Careful here with the cab driver you get - make sure he understands where YOU want to go. Always fun to do Sunset Beach and watch the plans land.
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I.
Got to do the Cruzan Rum Factory Tour - interesting and fun - with free rum drinks at the end of the tour.


A trip to the jogging track on the upper deck early in the AM was a great way to get some exercise and watch as we arrived at the various ports!
