Pacific Jewel Cruise Review by bob jg
- Sail Date: December 2016
- Destination: South Pacific
The Pacific Jewel slugs you at every possible opportunity. Why they must promote and sell bottled water the way they do is mischevious, is their on board water not fit for consumption?
At many entertainment sites such as the Atrium you could not get a seat at certain times, this was exacerbated by ignorant people who earmarked seat them for others who may or may not turn up.
We did meet a number of travellers that were first time cruisers that were full of praise of the cruise and one other couple who had paid two thousand dollars less than I paid for Balcony Cabin, so they were very [understandably] happy with the value proposition.
The service in free eat restaurants [Waterfront etc] was good and food a tad better but again well below prior cruise experience.
The entertainment overall was OK with a couple of great shows, however again it was well short of other cruise experiences.
All in all we found the value of the Pacific Jewel cruise signifcantly below our expectations and prior experience. Regrettably we could not recomend Pacific Jewel, rather we would suggest to use alternatives.
