Christmas in the Caribbean
Jewel of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Southern
This is our 6th cruise. Choose this cruise because of the departure port, my in-laws favorite cruise line and that we would be visiting a different port each day. What I dislike most about RCL is they do not allow travel irons. Claim for safety reasons, haven’t had this issue with NCL.
Dining: Ate breakfast at the Windjammer buffet with a selection of many items for any taste, same selection every day. We had breakfast one morning in Tides dining room and the food was lukewarm. MDR for dinner each night, food was surprisingly good. A few misses like the French Onion Soup and the steak. Favorite dessert warm chocolate cake with ice cream.
Entertainment: Amicable cruise director but evening entertainment was boring, it’s a good thing we were off the ship all day and needed to wake up early to go onshore. Would have been nice to have more variety of entertainment at different hours in the evening. Other than Christmas Eve shows the most entertainment we experienced was the sea day/last day on ship.
Enjoyed each of the 6 ports visited. Embarkation & disembarkation was a breeze. Overall, the crew was great; everyone we encountered was friendly & attentive.
