We did a 11 day cruise with two special needs children 6 & 9. The kids club did a wonderful job with our kids. It helped that it was a cruise through March break so not many kids on ship. They did tell us that things would have been different if more kids on board as they wouldn't have had the time for the one one care given. We found the staff and the food to be amazing. We would gladly cruise this ship again.

We only ate in the dining room twice otherwise we were in the Windrammer. All the food and service was excellent. Food was fresh with lots of choices. We ate lunch a few times in the Seaview Cafe and it was charming. We ate enjoyed chili, chicken fingers and amazing burgers.

We had ajoining staterooms with the children and it provided us with plently of space. We also had balcony rooms but found we didn't utilize it as much as expected. We were off doing mini golf, ping pong or swimming. There was lots to do. Our rooms were 7644 & 7646. We found we were right above the night club music that started at 9:00 pm. We could hear it nightly till late in the evening. It didn't seem to effect the kids but it kept me awake a few nights. We could hear it so clearly I could sing along.

The children really loved the kids club staff. They were wonderful with our special needs children. We saw one show and thought it was amazing. The quality was top notch. We spent a lot of time at the kids area and they loved the water slide and pool. The main pool was filled with sea water so it wasn't too pleasant for the children. We found older kids played in the younger kids pool because of the sea water so it was crowded at times. We played ping pong, shuffle board and mini golf many times. We did the rock wall a few times and really enjoyed it.

The comedy show was top notch. I was laughing so much I was crying.

We found the Jewel of the Seas to be a beautiful spacious ship. We would gladly return to sail again.
