s.gifMe and my Family are booked on a 7 day Southern Caribbean out of Puerto Rico on Jan 7 with stops in St. Croix, Phillipsburg, Roseau, Bridgetown, and St George's. 
Its our first time on a RCI cruise, we've sailed with Carnival in the past but are really looking forward to this one. 
 

Has anyone sailed on the Jewel since its refurbishment? If so how did you like it?

Anyone have any recommendations for shore excursions?

Are the specialty dining options worth the extra money or are the included options enough? 

What kind of activities are there to do on the ship? 

Any tips for first time RCI cruiser?

I think dining at one for a night or two is a good idea.  The specialty dining augments the complimentary food, and in most cases offers food otherwise not available (sushi, steak, etc).

Any ship that has been refurbished is going to look like new.   As far as shore excursions look at cruise critic and trip adviser for ideas.  The specialty restaurants  are excellent and worth the money.  There are all kinds of things to do on board. Just check the cruise compass daily. In fact you can google the ships name and cruise compass and you can see what goes on day to day.   Also google the ships name and reviews.   As you are a first timer on RC WELCOME aboard.  It won"t be your last time either.  Also on board they hold seminars for what to do in each port..  These are all beautiful islands.  And last use this site and ask questions. You will get get excellent answers.   Enjoy the cruise.

We did Giovanni’s Table on night 1 and CHOPS on night 2 with the BOGO deal on Jewel.  Saved some $$ and had a couple of really good meals when we sailed on her this summer through the Greek Islands.  I have some  pictures of the ship HERE.  The only thing negative is VOOM is not so great on the ship.  Otherwise we would sail her again in a heartbeat.
