Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2017
Cabin: Mid-Ship Inside

10 friends celebrating one our friends birthday.

Some of the group have cruised before but it was our first big cruise. We really enjoyed our experience on the Jewel. The staff made us feel very special, and were so perfessional and fun to be around.

We did an excursion at every port using both private and ship excursions. We got to see so many differen and wonderful place, people, architecture, and animals and we felt safe doing so at every port, which I was concerned about before we sailed. Most ports had a little sample of the culture set up so if you didn't want to venture to for off the ship you didn't have to.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside

Cabin IE

This cabin is close to the staff disco, you could hear (and smell cigarette smoke) in the hall but not once we were in the room. What we did hear was the Azura kitchen was above us and when they were cleaning up and prepping late at night it could get noisy

Port Reviews

Cartagena (Colombia)

Didn't realize we would need to take a cab to town to catch the bus


Took tour bus to the city of Antiqua, the drive was very scenic and interesting. The city was very pretty and interesting, worth going to see.


Booked a van and driver, went to the famous Flamingo hotel, divers and the cross on the hill.
