Ship Facts: Jewel of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Jewel of the Seas Deck Plans
Relaxing Crossing, great people
Boarding the ship in Miami proved to be comparatively simple (other than the check-in agents unable to deal with an up-grade in Crown&Anchor Status).

The Jewel is well appointed, the cabins comfortable with plenty of chances for exercise should you hike from the fore end of Deck 7 up and down the stairs to all meals, activities and music.

Since there was no seating available in either early or MyTime, I elected to have all my evening meals in the buffet area. The staff was superb in service, the Indian and Japanese Cuisine Excellent and I really appreciated the variety of cold soups over the two weeks. As a vegetarian, having food labeled clearly and a variety available made my evening meals a pleasure.

The Cruise Director's staff from Chloe on down were extremely supportive and found the 10-35 knitters/crocheters who met on sea days in the upper lounges quite fun and even supplied some needles and yarn for those who had failed to bring along enough to do. Scrapbooking and Jewelry making were oversubscribed which I think also startled the staff.

Other than the Country and Western Group who seemed to have only one set (and I do know how started the howl due to the pain of being able to set your watch by their music) the musicians were fantastic, especially the string players.

The Fitness Center is excellent and the staff knowledgeable.

Fun, yes! Will I book with RCI for cruises? Of course, have a couple already booked for this coming fall. Great ship if you want to relax, talk with people, spend time on fitness, your own interests. The library was pitiful - bring your own Nook/Kindle/iPad....
