The Jewel of the Seas offers its guests spectacular views, from the panoramic elevators that face the open sea to the walls of windows in the top-deck Viking Crown Lounge -- in fact, close to half of the ship’s surface is made of glass! When it’s time for dinner, passengers can choose to dine on continental cuisine in the main dining room, elegant Italian fare at Portofino or a steak dinner at Chops Grille. For a more casual dining experience, visit the Windjammer Café or take advantage of the complimentary 24-hour room service. Athletic passengers will appreciate the variety of sports amenities, including a putting green and golf simulator, state-of-the-art ShipShape fitness center and spa, and popular rock-climbing wall. In the unique Colony Club, you’ll find four themed clubs in one: The Congo Bar, The Safari Club, Zanzibar Lounge and Serengeti Card Club. Young cruisers will love Adventure Ocean, the kids-only area of the ship that includes a video arcade, art studio, teens’ pool and more.
