Amazing Trip

Sail Date: May 10, 2011

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

From start to finish an amazing experience.  The Jewel is a great ship,  a little bigger then the Spirit.  Was so impressed with everything.  Food was amazing, we enjoyed all of the entertainment, played the games that were offered.  The weather was great the ports a lot of fun. I got a crazy sinus infection and head cold which really sucked.  The second from last day i went and got accupunture in my face and believe it or not it worked,  and my last couple of days were very good.  All the Ports on this cruise were docked which was fantastic,  being able to come and go without having to wait for a tender was great.  This trip we had a balcony stateroom, I was so in love just having the floor to ceiling door made the room look so much bigger, although we still are not the type to spend very much time in our stateroom, it was nice to have morning coffee brought to us to enjoy on the balcony.  We ate 90% of our meals in the dinning rooms, we did eat lunch at the buffet and Blue lagoon.  And we had one Dinner at the specailty resturant Tepenyani and it was a great experince.

when using cabs in NY use the yellow cabs, the independent ones are much more expensive.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
we took the bus tour which was very informative.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
went to Magen's Bay, it was wonderful, did not enjoy the stay in town waiting for our ride back to the ship . The people were not very friendly
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
our orginal excusition was cancelled due to high waves, the replacement one was ok, but not great.
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Loved Tortola, the excurstion we took to Norman Island was first class, the crew was very friendly and very helpful.


The Main dinning room was my favorite place. we had to wait a couple of times to be seated, but it was never very long of a wait.
