Jewel of the Seas Cruise Review by bemwag
- Sail Date: October 2011
- Destination: Canada & New England
- Cabin Type: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony
All in all it was a wonderful trip and we had a hard time complaining about anything!!! We even won money in the casino!!!!
The ship was immaculate, the staff very friendly and the food very good! We did two tours through the ship in St. John and in Halifax which were interesting but a little on the pricey side for what you got!
The only dissapointment we felt was the entertainment shows in the evenings. They had fantastic singers and dancers but only performed two shows, the other shows were a juggler, an Elvis impersonator and a comidian. I was expecting more of a Las Vegas style Broadway show every night as I have experienced on other cruises.
I would recommend this trip and this cruise line to everyone

Bar HarborProbably one of our favorite ports because it was a very quaint little harbor town with lots of restaurants and shops. We took a tour through town up to Cadillac Mountain - very fun with beautiful views.View All 369 Bar Harbor Cruise Port Reviews

BostonSpent two days in Boston before getting on the ship. Saw the majority of the points of interest through the hop on hop off guided trolly bus which included a harbor cruise. Loved Boston!!View All 547 Boston Cruise Port Reviews

HalifaxHalifax was a nice place to visit with the bag pipers meeting the ship when we pulled up! Took the tour to Peggy's Cove - which should not be missed. Beautiful 1 1/2 drive to get there but well worth it! Tour guide was very informative - don't miss the Maritime Museum too!!!View All 637 Halifax Cruise Port Reviews

Portland (Maine)Portland was a nice town but not too much to see besides the one lighthouse.View All 271 Portland (Maine) Cruise Port Reviews

Saint John (New Brunswick)St. John was alot more of an industrial city than I was expecting. Took the 7 hour tour to Saint Martin, a small fishing village, and the caves. Make sure you have a bowl of clam chowder soup at the beach - the best you will ever have in your life!View All 323 Saint John (New Brunswick) Cruise Port Reviews
