Ship Facts: Jewel of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Jewel of the Seas Deck Plans
Too tired to tango
Cabin, sorry stateroom, was fine. it was large, well appointed and kept spotlessly clean. The food was fine although we have had better and the service was good and improved even more as we neared the end (I wonder why!!!)

The entertainment was excellent whether it was acts brought in from the UK or West End type shows all complete with a live bands in the theatre plus entertainment in every bar.

The only gripe was the use of the central atrium for entertainment. It is small with vitrually no seats and interfered with the desks such as customer relations.

But, why oh why do all cruise lines rip us off with drinks prices whether it be wine at dinner, soft drinks in the day or even plain old water. This always leaves me with a slightly sour taste when I know that a bottle of wine cosying $36 was one that I could have bought at my local supermarket for less than £5. I know that there has to be a mark up, but 500%! And that was after buying the drinks package.

Gothenburg - not worth getting off the ship for, just an industrial city. (2)
