9 Night Greek Isles (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 01, 2016
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8158
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise, it was our 2nd thru the Greek Isles and our favorite part had to be the Ruins tour in Ephesus Turkey,  even visiting the 2nd time blows your mind, and best part was that you get to get up close actually inside the building and ruins.  The only part of the cruise that was disappointing was the Windjammer café onboard,  we are long time cruisers and I have to say that the staff in the Café was the worst I have ever seen at sea on any cruise,  rude, and very unhelpful, and it wasn't only the stuff even the officers working were unpleasant.  And several times they would have conversations and argument out in public café area,  and that should never happen around guest.

lounge performs were great, but the shows on board were so low quality we never made it thru a show before getting so bored and leaving

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship was CLEAN, but figuring it had just gone thru a 30 million dollar refurbishment, there was still lot of stuff that needed fixing, rips in uplolstry, rushing pool area, railing that were marked up and peeling,

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great Cabin with full balcony view. Great cabin room attendant

Ship Tip

Book your excursions in advance before cruise if possible, but if you are onboard and need to book something or change something always do it via the TV system in the room, if you go to guest services for help they are always way understaffed and you waste a good hour or more in line .
