My husband and I took our first cruise on the Star to Alaska. We decided to splurge for a balcony suite. It was amazing.
We had cabin 10000 - on the very front of the boat. HUGE balcony.
The room was fabulous, but the view from our balcony was IT for us.
The Jewell is set up just like the Star. In May 2007 we are going to Greece-Egypt-Turkey and we, again, have room 10000. I would not sail unless I could have a room at the front of the boat with a big balcony. Unless I was going with girlfriends, then I'd take any room
