Ship Facts: Jewel of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Jewel of the Seas Deck Plans
Jewel of the Seas- Southern Caribbean Cruise

Embarkation- Arrived at pier 1 1/2 hours prior to all aboard. Got right on the ship with no wait.

Ship- excellent condition. Beautifully appointed with interesting artwork. Bank of elevators overlooking the sea. Able to see the sea from many venues.

Cabin- Junior Suite -very roomy with walk in closet, bathtub, large balcony. Cabin attendant was wonderful. Very accommodating. Provided egg crate for mattress.

Dining- Menu in MDR was very good with many choices. Had anytime dining but made standing reservation so had same wait staff every night. Excellent personal service. Also ate in Chops. Delicious meal with 10 oz filet mignon. Worth the $30 charge.

Entertainment- Mediocre. Production shows were boring and song choice random although dancers and singers were quite talented. Elvis impersonator was not great. Another singer imitated many famous singers. Argentine tango act also just so-so.

Casino- appreciated no smoking area. Slots payouts were terrible.

Ports- cruise was port intensive.

Day at Sea- Played bingo. Saw towel folding demonstration. Played trivia. Enjoyed time on our balcony.

Disembarkation- Very efficient. Got off ship and retrieved luggage, passed through customs, and took ship sponsored airport transfer. Was in airport 45 minutes after leaving our cabin.

We had a wonderful time. I highly recommend RCCL . As I mentioned this itinerary was port intensive, Would have preferred ate least two days at sea to further enjoy the ship. Otherwise a perfect vacation.
