Celebrating our 50th anniversary we cruised Jewel with a mix of people in their 70s, 40s and grandsons 10 and 15 years old. We liked the itinary and also the size of the ship. We donot like those big mega ships. Our balcony cabin was nice, but some paint was needed on the outside. We knew the bathroom is rather small. The beds were very comfortable. Food in the Windjammer and in the Diningroom was very good. Enough choices on the menu. Our servers, Michelle from the Philipines and Keyshaw from Mauritius were excellent. Always friendly, interested in our taste and often they would bring some special food from the menu for us to taste. They worked very hard, but always enjoyed their work. Overall we found the music in the atrium as well as in some bars extreme and much too loud! Conversation was impossible. A reason to sometimes escape from a bar or the atrium. We took and paid for 8 people of our family as we celebrated our 50th anniversary. We were a little disappointed that we had to pay extra for a small anniversary cake and also not even a free (glass) of wine was offered for that occasion. . That would have been a nice thank you for us by RCCL. Our airline offered us a glass of champagne with a nice congratulations card, although it was a short inter Europe flight.

Nice cruise with the family
