Ship Facts: Jewel of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Jewel of the Seas Deck Plans
Jewel of the Seas is much more than we expected!

We like to cruise on the larger ships, and were hesitant about the Jewel because it is smaller and older. However, we were very happily pleased and surprised with this ship.

We sailed out of San Juan to St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Johns Antigua, Martinique, and St. Lucia.

Among the positives of this cruise:

-The ship sails to ports that cruises out of Florida don't normally go to.

-The rooms are as nice as any on the newer and larger ships.

-Dinner in the main dining room was excellent, as was the service.

-The captain was visible at several events.

-The Seaside Cafe offers great sandwiches and food at no charge, and much better than the Windjammer food.

-We never waited in line-for anything!

-Lots of activities-rock wall, mini-golf, shuffleboard, trivia.

-Fresh crepes made to order-twice- a nice treat in the Windjammer.

-The live entertainment is excellent.

Among the things that can be improved:

-Some of the TVs are old and not so good in quality.

-The Windjammer food is somewhat that same everyday, especially breakfast, which was the same each day.

-The pizza-other ships have a pizza parlor, and the Jewel pizza lacks in quality and variety.

-Bar service-we purchased a drink package, and they seem less motivated to provide service to drink package passengers.
