Hi everyone. We're on board.
Here's hump cabin 8596











It was asked if the balcony dividers open... Yes they do. Staff have to unscrew the bolts top and bottom and hinges turn the dividers

A few more






1st look as we arrived... Great driver "cabs4rome", Maurizio. 135 euro shared with Beachcruzer and DH. Waaaaaaaaay better than the train in a nice Mercedes van.




Beachcruzer mentioned it was the quickest she ever got on board. No joke maybe 10min from giving porter our luggage, checking we walked right up to a desk clerk, and walking to the gangway. Superb





WJ back deck for lunch with Oceania Riviera and an MSC ship docked with us




Time to go explore and chill Out at pool deck. Tomorrow at sea so likely mom posting folks. Next you'll hear from me is beautiful Santorini.
Ciao for now

Thanks very much for the photos, good to see the size of the balcony. We'll be 'next door' but on Brilliance (sister ship) on Tuesday.

Enjoy Jewel! We were on her in June. Say hello to Allen and Leonora at the schooner from Rick and Trish. Best drinks on board and they are great to chat with.

Hey everyone!!!!!
We've had a great two nights in Jewel. Diego CL is awesome, chops and Giovanni's excellent. The crowd and nightlife very very excellent!



And the officers provided a special D+ PN and suite guests a special sail in party, just excellent, great food, free beverages of all
Kinds. And now we're running for tender number 1... Special access with Diego from
The CL. We're in Santorini heading to Oia.
See Ya later

May I ask if you did an excursion or just did Santorini on your own? We are looking for the best way to get to Oia so we can walk the trail back.
Thank you!
