Review summary

The Jewel is well run, the stops were very good, took several excursions and they were for the most part very good and informative. Found the Stardust theater was a bit cool at times. Maria was very helpful on getting us positioned (room wise) so we could see the most from our balcony going through the Canal. Not many kids on this trip because of the length. It was hot even in December. Weather held up nicely. All in all a great trip.
