Jewel of the Seas totally exceeded our expectations

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
We went on a Norwegian cruise and hated it and vowed never to go on a cruise again but were talked into our recent cruise on the Jewel of the Seas and had the most amazing cruise ever. The ship is magnificent. It is extremely elegant and leaves you in awe. The room had a big round window over our bed so I could look out at the sea at night. The Centrum was amazing. The design of the different clubs were amazing. They had a pool in a solarium that was designed middle eastern and very beautiful. The pictures on the web site do not do it justice. You will be in awe with everything you see on the ship. The food was fantastic and the best part about our cruise was the staff who always went out of their way for you in every aspect.

We visited St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Tortola, Barbados and Dominica and were very happy to stay on the ship the last day as they made the whole day a huge last day celebration. The shows were awesome and very talented and the comedies were hilarious. It More totally exceeded our expectations and I can see why some people get off and get back on again and do it again immediately after. Less

Port and Shore Excursions

Jeep 4X4 Adventure

very long tour on tarred road not exciting adventure.

Shipwreck Snorkel

The 4x4 was was just a long tour of the island on tarred road. The shipwreck snorkel was great and the speedboat to the site was exciting. Not enough time on the beach.

Rainforest Tour

Hot springs were awesome and the rainforest was beautiful. However, if you are afraid of heights you have to walk over a narrow rickety bridge over a river.

Historic House

Went to the museum which was very interesting.

Very beautiful mountainous island lots of shopping and beaches can get a chair and 6 beers for $20

I didn't get off the ship on this port because I wanted to experience the ship but my sisters did and loved it. My husband dove a wreck called the Roan and had a great diving experience.
