IS THE JEWEL A TRAINING SHIP? Several of our fellow passengers thought so...

The food was mediocre at best.

The itinerary was why we chose this cruise. I have been around long enough to know that the new, splashy ships have the least interesting itineraries, and the older tired ships have the most interesting itineraries. However, I did not expect the older ship to offer subpar food and experiences.

The salad dressings had no flavor at all, and the soups were just broth. There were no onions in the onion soup, and no potatoes in the potato soup. I ended up putting mustard on salads as opposed to just eating wet lettuce with no flavor. Most things were boring and bland and many things were watered down. The orange juice was powdered “Tang”. Is RCL trying to save money company wide, or is it just this ship? Who goes on a 17 night cruise and loses weight?

It was OK, no issues. I don't know what code in the list above was ours.
