There was a party of 6 of us (3 couples) that went on this cruise. 3 of 6 had never cruised before. We had interior rooms on deck 5, dead center of the ship. Nothing fancy but still nice. The bathrooms, particularly the shower, was nicer than the previous 2 cruises I was on. Before the cruise I had read reviews and got the idea that the food was going to be lacking. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE. WE never paid for any of the specialty dining and all ate until we were very content. We ate every night in one of the dining rooms, Azura or Tzar's Palace Restaurants. The staff did very well and the food was great. The shows were good to great. The le Cirque bijou show was AMAZING!!! The comedian was great too.

The ship itself was CLEAN and newly remodeled.... so it seemed.

As for the itinerary, it was ok. Belize is run down badly, mainly because I believe the people to be lazy. Roatan, Honduras is beautiful. We ate some locally cooked food...a little pricy, but local food none the less. We did an Eco-Walk with a sweet little local lady, who had a remedy for EVERYTHING... which included Viagra, Teething for babies, Leukemia cures. She was a hoot! In Cozumel we simply booked a lazy eat/drink/ beach day. It was fun and nice.

Overall we agreed that it was a great vacation. Not the greatest destinations but a great cruise. The Jewel is a jewel!
