This was our first cruise and we were very disappointed in it.
First of all there was hardly any activities, second we never got a chance to go in the pool or the hot tubs because there was never any room for us to get in. 3rd, we never got a lounge chair. They are all taken before 7 30 AM
Shore Excursion, dont waste your time going to Great Stirrup Cay
its over crowded, you never get a lounge chair or a hammock, also if you do the snorkling you wont see anything unde water plus be VERY careful because there was way too many coral/rocks. My sister and I went in the water and just about every other step was hugh rocks our feet would get caught between them or yoou would slip on them etc.
I DO recomand The Blue Lagoon Beach Day. It was great !! we loved it.
I do want to mention however, the staff on th Jewel was very friendly , the food was good. and your room was always clean.
We are going to try an All-Inclusive next time.
Good Luck on your cruise.
