We have been on the Jewel more than 10 times. It is one of our favorite ships. Lots of glass, nice artwork, great crew. We will be on Jewel again this year for the Boston to Tampa repositioning cruise (our 7th time doing this particular cruise).
Jewel will be moving to San Juan sometime in 2013, and will be replaced on the Boston-Tampa run by a sister ship, Brilliance of the Seas.
We love that entire class of ship (Radiance). Sort of like the three bears story....not too big, not too small - just right. You will love the ship.
