I went on the Jewel of the Seas in 2013 and it was my first cruise. It left a profound memory in my mind. So what did I think of the Jewel?
-Embarkation: Quick and Simple. No hassles and boarded within 20 minutes of entering the main terminal.
Never really spent time in it BUT it was very small; almost claustrophobic. If you have more than 3 people, you definitely need two rooms. Bathrooms were very basic and tight. Could barely get dressed in there. Upper berths were uncomfortable. Older electronics (tv, lights...). There was a good amount of storage though.
