Best part of the Jewel was the outdoor part of the Windjammer.

Sail Date: Apr 2015

We had a Balcony and still had an older style TV which gave us problems, but other then that the room is what we have come to expect. Shows and Islands were good but when we have 5 ports in 7 days which means 2 tried cruisers. One of the best things was the top tier event which was held on the heli-pad. The ship's staff was great as always but we had some problems with main dinning room asst. waiter as he looked after the other table better then our table. Getting on and off the ship was very smooth and had no problems. The food in the Windjammer was good every day. Chop's Grill was alright but now they charge even more for steaks that us to be included for the extra fee, and there was 3 of us eating and when we order the sides one was the Asparagus and they came to the table with 6 stalks. Drinks are also pricey mixed drinks $ 10. - mudslides, grasshoppers were $14. Also we got the pop package and there was only one refill machine and it was in the Windjammer and when it was closed I could not get Coke Zero and had to settle with other diet drinks. In summary RCCL has to get in the real world on drink prices but over all the cruise was good in other ways.
