We're going on the Jubilee next week (Oct 12). I know it's an old ship, but have people had good experiences on it?? We are in a Cat 12 room. How about the kid activities? I'm excited about the ports, so I wanted to take a chance on the ship. Hope I didn't make a mistake!
We sailed on the Jubilee August 28th of this year and had a wonderful time. Yes there is vibration, yes it is worse in the Funnel Restaurant, but no it's not unbearable. We never smelled any of the sewage smells that we had heard so many complaints about. The ship rocks a bit more than I've heard that the bigger ships do, but I found it incredibly relaxing and it rocked me to sleep every night!
The room steward did a great job. We hardly saw him but our room was always clean. The dining room staff was incredible. They treat you like royalty!
I don't know anything about the kids' activities personally, but I have heard good things on other boards.
I hope you have a great time. I don't think you made a mistake. I would sail on the Jubilee again without hesitation (if only I had the money!!)
