being on the Jewel/Gem 4 times , the ships have the same basic layouts except the duty free shops are placed differently..Room was exactly what I asked for !!! Elevator 8 feet from room...6/7 floor was Theatre...12 floor was pool !!! hardly did any walking of hallways.Midship way to go..

food ..diningroom first nite cause it was easy and blah tasting..... reservations everyother nite at specialty restaurants.Go before 6 and get free bottle of wine . No Brainer !!!! Le Bistro/Orchid/Italian/Cagneys

shows were quite good. casino ( wife is a gambler ) was not acceptable / smelled of smoke !!!!

pool area : layout on Gem was very tight. not one table between any lounge chair and they sqeezed 8 chairs between every column..could not even walk to the next least on the Jewel evey so often the put little tables around..

Private island has been made so pretty , even from last September !!!! must rent the Clamshells there for the day plus this entitles you to first tender to the island..
