Review summary

We normally take Celebrity or Princess but decided on Jewel of the seas. It was a smaller ship and we were very busy with all those ports. But it worked out well. Our only issue was my time dining. Being our 21st cruise we are used to getting the same waiter each night and asked but not able to achieve it. So disappointing that we didn't get to know our waiters
