The Jewel of the Seas is not a new ship, and its not as big as most of the newer ones,but this is good as being a small ship it is much easier to go from place to place. At this point a review of the amenities, etc would be unfair as she's going into dry-dock and, supposedly, reemerging as a shining new star.
I have to say that the service in main dining room and cafeteria was superb, as was Customer Relations and the Excursion personnel. The cabin steward was not all that good as he was seldom visible and the cleanliness of the cabin left much to be desired, since all that was done was a clean supply of towels and the bed made...As to entertainment, I can only address the evening fare. Both my companion and I are well past the teenage stage, so we found it to be poor and at times infantile. An other "issue" was the fact that St. Kits was replaced by St. Martin and no explanation given...no biggie, but it would have been nice to know.
As an overall, this was a good trip.

All I can say is that the cabins are well past their prime.
