  1. Thanks so much for posting this - We're doing an almost identical itinerary on Jewel next June, essentially the same ports, in a slightly different order. Apart from Copenhagen, Stavanger is the only other of the ports we've been to before. We did the Rodne cruise (superb), and then walked around town and visited the Petroleum Museum. This review is already helping with excursion planning!
  2. I was on the pre-opening cruise out of Barcelona in March, so I've seen the gym, track and jacuzzis etc. I agree with your comments regarding the size of the gym, particularly when compared to Freedom class.
  3. The online booking system is only offering 15 minute segments in the mid afternoon, even for a full weekly pass. I presume that's just an aberration with the website and a weekly pass is valid whenever the area is open. I'm not sure whether to book it, I've gone for exorbitantly priced one-off sessions on both Jewel and Anthem, and found both underwhelming to say the least. I have no interest in the heated chairs, and to be honest, I found the steam room somewhat weak and insipid on both. IMO, the free sauna and steam rooms in the dressing rooms on Vision class ships were vastly superior! Is there a sauna in the Symphony thermal suite, and are the steam rooms actually hot?
