Friends on the Jewel / Crown & Anchor Cruise
Let me start by saying we are late 40s and the majority of the ship was 70+. This did not stop us from having a wonderful time. We had wonderful table mates, and got to meet some of our cruise critic friends. This was a crown and anchor cruise, (Please do not book a C&A cruise for the free perks or gifts you will be disappointed.) The meet and mingle was fun, Thanks to Susie for the Gift exchange, an Tim for the cabin crawl and the crispy crunch bars. LOL Cabin We had cabin 8088, we are Diamond, we never had robes delivered, and a couple of times there were used towels put back on the rack, so I started putting them in the shower stall, so he would get the hint I wanted clean towels. I did not think the robes was a issue or I would have asked for them, so if you want them you may have to ask. other than that small issue the room was clean and fresh.
Dining I am not a big food critic, but they really need a new dessert menu this is the same one from 5 years ago. Now our More Waiter really needed some help, I think they have opened the my time dining at the top deck an moved the majority of small tables there so our waiter was trying to take care of 2 large tables about 20 people. He often mixed up our orders, would forget what you ordered, and was not the most personable, the assistant tried to make up where he was lacking. She was wonderful. This was the first time we were never offered drinks from the bar with dinner, We were given a wine menu, but we are not wine drinkers. After dinner shots were never brought by out table, only saw them on one night across the room. Made for a cheaper bar tab for me!
Entertainment, not our favorite. Marty Allen and the Motown group were very good. The RC singers need help. The guy in the schooner bar, get ready to go to sleep. The vortex dj, young kid did not know much music. Less
