A great escape from work, a wonderful ship, and a great port: Jewel of the Seas Cruise Review by Cruising Photographer

A great escape from work, a wonderful ship, and a great port
Destination: Western Caribbean
We chose the "My Time Dining" option and pre-reserved our times online a few weeks before the cruise. We booked a later dining time when leaving Tampa & Cozumel so we could watch the ship leave port and go under the Sunshine Skyway bridge. We reserved 5:45 dining time on our days at sea so More we weren't rushed to see the shows and evening activities. Each evening, when leaving the dining room, we reserved the same table and same waiter for dinner the following night. This flexibility in times was wonderful and having the same staff every night was great.
The staff of the Jewel of the Seas were outstanding. There were no problems, and we were absolutely thrilled with this cruise. Don't miss the 1970's disco party in the lobby. Dennis and the dancers were absolutely fabulous in this "show".
Upon returning home, we called Capital Parking, and they were at the port in about 15 minutes to pick us up and take us back to the car. High marks for them as well! Less
Cabin review: M8639 Interior Stateroom
We chose an inside cabin because we knew we wouldn't be in there except to sleep. The cabin was adaquate with enough room for us. It was quiet and in excellent shape.Read All Interior Stateroom (M) Reviews >>
