We will not be on your cruise, but we were on the Jewel in September. It is a beautiful ship. Everything was great. It even has 2 pool tables. Only problem the days fly by so fast. Have a wonderful cruise.

Hey Beth123, I won't be on the Jewel until Sept this year. But while it was docked here in Boston, I had a chance to have lunch and a tour aboard the ship with a local radio station. You won't be disappointed. It is absolutely beautiful. Enjoy and have a great time.

Nancy RYder,

You will not explode if you touch the refrigerator, but you will be charged if you move anything in it. It's best to have your cabin steward take everything out of it so you can use it for your stuff.

Not sure about the wine issue.....hopefully someone else can help you on that. We were on the Jewel in September and LOVED it. The most beautiful ship I've seen. Great crew too!

DO seek out the Seaview cafe and have a meal (or two or three) there. If you don't see it on their menu, ask for it. I was craving a grilled cheese sandwich and asked if they could make one and it was so yummy. Definitely worth getting past my hesitation to ask for things off the menu.

DO go to the Jakarta club, the lounge at the rear of the ship on deck 6. The whole back of it is windows overlooking the wake of the ship. I loved the giraffes at the entrance.

Can't think of any DON'Ts except don't miss any of the above.
