We stayed in Harwich at the Premier Inn, very convenient for port, not so much for town. But had a good stay and good breakfast. Had lunch in town at the Pier Hotel, fish and chips! Got a taxi around 11AM, checked right in and onto ship. Windjammer for lunch ( good, but rarely eat there, too many other good choices). Cabins where ready by 1:30, luggage was already there. Had an informal meet ...

This was our very first internet based holiday and we are all pleased to say that it has turned out to be a marvelous experience. The JoS is simply a magical ship and all the stories about the effects of having large glass planes all around turned out to be very true. They do have a magical effect. All staff compliment were really nice and welcoming especially the dining room staff and the room ...

We flew to London on Monday and stayed at the Westminster Hilton Doubletree Hotel, which included a bus ride to the port in Harwich on Friday morning. The hotel was reasonably priced, and in an excellent location. The "hop on hop off" bus was only two blocks away, and Parliament, and Buckingham Palace within reasonable walking distance. We even found a launderette a few blocks away to do some ...

Ship & Room Decor feels a bit dated, but overall is OK. I did not like the water on desks, seemed hazardous for jogging and even walking. The running track deck is not runner friendly. Our room attendant was extremely friendly and personable. The room was comfortable (deck 9 closer to the aft), but it could use a more thorough cleaning (I am a cleaning freak). I saw supervisor's checking room ...

Overnight flight from Boston to Harwich - stayed in the charming Tower Hotel in Harwich the night before the cruise. Embarkation was smooth and efficient. There were more people in the "priority boarding line" than in the regular line and I laughed as I breezed right through and waited for THEM! Once on-board,I had lunch and explored the ship a bit before the "drill". Then I had the pleasure ...

DINING ~was good. We had late seating, we could not get early, and I actually enjoyed seeing the shows before dinner. Food was good, always wish for better. We ate at Chops - Fantastic and Porotfino- very good. The food choices were different than ships I have been on before, probably due to this being a transatlantic cruise. The Windjammer and Seaview Cafe were both very good. SERVICE on ...

Embarkation at Harwich, went smoothly until we were directed towards the gangway. There was a long queue with a delay of approximately 40 minutes. However, delighted with our cabin and have nothing but praise for cabin stewards Ajay and Walter and all staff onboard. Jewel is a delightful ship although in need of some revitalisation which I understand is planned for 2013. Certain parts of the ...

This was our 3rd cruise (all with RCI) and first TA. We booked it 18 months in advance because of the great itinerary - so many ports, including the Faroe Islands! First, I want to mention how helpful our very active CC roll call members were for planning private tours, sharing information, organizing activities, and such. I felt like I had 350 new friends before ever setting foot ...

We travelled with our adult children and their partners, all in their twenties an all of whom have cruised at least once. We had sailed on the larger RCI ships previously and had also done this cruise with NCL 3 years ago. We arrived at Harwich at 10.30 just as the car park opened. We had pre-booked our parking but many people had not and this slowed the process down. As Platinum members we had ...

As I previously stated we stayed in the Aft corner, room 1100 which is a junior suite. We loved the room, it was spacious, the balcony is very big, the bathroom is nice, the closet has ample space, and bed was comfortable. The TV is still the old "boob tube" tv which takes up some space. We had ample shelving space to store all of our items. Our room steward Erwin was great and took care of ...
