The Jewel also has a Putt Putt course on the top deck. It is a fun course and you never get tired of it. Us big kids played it several times. The wife was determined to beat me (at best, she tied me)
The specialty restaurants are fantastic. For me, it is too much food. I find the regular dinning restaurants to be 5-Stars for my palate. But it is definitely a nice treat for that price.
The evening performances were excellent. Not sure that kids would like the shows that were on our trip, however.
We did not have a Karyoke (sp) contest (probably poor participation) and we did not have a Talent competition (which is always fun to watch). Also due to lack of participation.
Each cruise might vary from trip to trip, but the overall rating of Jewel is NUMBER 1 !!!!!!!!
