Ship Facts: Jewel of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Jewel of the Seas Deck Plans
Great cruise

Just got off the Jewel after a 7 day cruise starting Aug. 31st. San Juan was hot and sticky but interesting to see. I would not stay at the Best Western Condado Palms - very noisy!

Have to say this was one of the best cruises we have ever been on. We went from the hotel to eating on the ship in less than 30 minutes. We thought the food was terrific as were our waiters Angel and Jaime. Even if you didn't like the nightly specials the everyday selection was good. Best ribs on the last day of the cruise in the Windjammer.

Our room steward Eric was wonderful. Whatever was requested was done and quickly. Only complaint about the cabin is you can not open the balconies. Disappointing as we were traveling with 2 other couples and had looked forward to having drinks before dinner all together on the balcony. We had an issue with the people above us. I mentioned it to Eric and the next day the front desk was calling to rectify the problem. We were in 9228 and my only issue was we were right across from a crew access area. Very noisy as they were preparing carts and getting ready for the day.

Very port intensive cruise but the ports were great. In St. Marteen our catamaran only had 15 people! What a great time. We never came across any crew members who we felt weren't happy to be there. Disembarkation was quick and painless. Got off right when they said and 25 minutes from the ship to the airport. Would not hesitate to sail on the Jewel again!
