On the whole and with the exception of suites, Jewel of the Seas’ cabins run on the smaller side of the industry average. Not counting single occupancy cabins and the Owner's Suites, every cabin features twin beds that can be converted into Royal Kings.

Each room also comes with a private bathroom, a dressing table area with a stool, hair dryer, closed-circuit TV, phone and safe. Electricity sockets are American. Color schemes marry ocean blue with rose gold. In terms of storage space, there's just enough; suitcases, for example, can be stored under the beds.

Bathrooms also fall on the small side; more than one elbow has been bashed in the ship's showers. True to other Royal Caribbean ships, shower gel and shampoo are included in the shower itself, but you'll want to bring your own conditioner.

There are cabins to accommodate disabled passengers in many categories.

If you’re looking to sleep in or go to bed early in the evening, the Jewel of the Seas’ best cabins are those on decks 8 and 9.

Jewel of the Seas Rooms Range from Interior to Mini-Suites

Interior: Jewel of the Seas inside cabins are 170 square feet and can sleep up to 4 guests. The exception are single-occupancy studios, where a twin bed, vanity area and private bathroom fit into 108 square feet.

Ocean-view: Most Jewel of the Seas ocean-view rooms measure 170 square feet and come with a window (apart from those on Deck 2, which have portholes). Connecting Ocean View staterooms are available for families or groups. The Ultra Spacious Ocean View Staterooms offers 265 square feet and come with two twin beds, a sitting area with a sofa bed, plus either one Pullman bed and a twin bed or tow Pullmans. These units can sleep up to 6 guests.

Balcony: Balcony rooms on Jewel of the Seas fall into two categories: Ocean View Balcony cabins are smaller, with 179 square feet of interior space and balconies measuring between 27 and 47 square feet. Spacious Ocean View cabins are larger, at 204 square feet, with balconies measuring between 41 and 172 square feet. These staterooms can sleep up to 5 guests. Balcony spaces are furnished with basic mesh-seat and mesh-back chairs and small tables.

Most of Jewel of the Seas’ Obstructed Ocean View Balcony cabins are located on Deck 8, but some have better views than others, as the elements that block the vista vary (cleaning stairs, parts of the ship’s structure…).

Jewel of the Seas Suites Offer More Space and Additional Perks

Junior Suite: These mini-suites are located on Deck 10 and feature 299 square feet of interior space and a 41-square-foot balcony. Features include two twin beds that convert to a Royal King, and a bathroom with a bathtub. There's also a sitting area with a sofa bed.
