Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2017
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: 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.

The food and entertainment on the ship was very good and plentiful, you could always find something to eat and do at most times of the day.

Our home was an inside cabin, which is what it is. It had everything we needed but we were only there to sleep.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IE 5609

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

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.
