Ship Facts: Jewel of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Jewel of the Seas Deck Plans
Feb. 16th , 2013 five day cruise.
This was our third cruise out of Tampa. Tampa is a great port to leave from. Boarding and departure went very smoothly. We carried out luggage off and were on the way to the airport at 7:50 am. Taxi ride to port was $27 and we elected to take a shuttle van back and this was $22 for two.

We would rate the food a 4 on the scale of 1 -- 5. We used the dining room most of the time for all meals. Staff was great! The best place for a snack is on Deck 12 aft. I believe Seaside Cafe. Never crowded, food there was a 5 for a quick sandwich or snack.

Shows were just OK for us, we do not like musicals, and there were two and the comedy -- 2 again, which one was a musical also. Shows could have had more variety.

The Casino was LOUSY. Old slot machines were old and outdated. There were several

times that the machines Failed to pay off on hits. When the Staff here was alerted.... They had NO clue and just mumbled something to brush you off. This problem grew as the cruised progress and was mentioned by many players. There were several machines that Never worked. Highlight, there was a $5K winner on a penny slot. Not me!

Chairs and recliners............ sometimes an issue. Not here, you just had to look around and check all of the decks, but there were plenty.

Recommend YES!
