Jewel of the Seas

April 2015 - Jewel of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Ship dated and poor food quality

The ship was extremely dated (it was as though it was stuck in the 1980's) and over priced for what was available on the vessel.  The quality of the food was marginal at best and was in very limited quantities. Same things every day with no variance in the buffets and they were frequently out of stock.  Beverage stations for the paid beverage packages were only available for a portion of the day and were not full.  Food/snacks could not be found on the ship after 10 pm unless you wanted to pay an additional fee for a specialty hamburger or were interested in a stale piece of pizza that was obviously leftover from the buffet and sitting under a warmer.  The ports of call were amazing.

tinker1's Tips

Castries, St. Lucia - The crew on the Carnival III Catamaran to the Pitons was amazing! One of the best excursions we have had to date.
St. George's, Grenada - The driver was called in last minute to take the tour and tried to make the best of it by sharing his knowledge but it was evident he had other plans.
Frederiksted, St. Croix, U.S.V.I. - Cruzan Rum Distillery, Botanical Gardens and Whim Plantation were very educational but took longer at each site than was anticipated so was very rushed by the end.
Jewel of the Seas Jewel of the Seas - There is very limited seating on the pool deck; especially on sea days and most of it is in the smoking areas on the upper deck. If you want to sit out, you need to go early and make sure someone stays by your chairs or your items will be removed if it appears you are not actively using the chair.
