We choose this cruise for the amazing itinerary. The Greek Islands are so beautiful. Most of our tours were through RC and they were wonderful. The food, service and entertainment on the cruise was disappointing. The food had no taste to ... Read more

All destinations were perfect, all the cities were ''to discover'' and each had something different to provide. Embarkation was perfect but disembarkation needs improvement/clarification for early departure. Ship is great, rooms are ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of its Port-au- Calls, which I had not visited before. It was somewhat inconvenient as it sailed from San Juan, PR and we live in Miami, thus had to fly in the day before (the same day flight was leaving at 7 ... Read more

We took this TA ( our 4th TA) because of the ports and cost. We had a balcony on Deck 8 which was spacious and more storage than we expected. Our CRuiseCritic roll call was very active and we participated in many events through the cruise, ... Read more

We have completed many Transatlantics including a previous one on Jewel of the Seas. We particularly like the relaxing sea days and getting to know other passengers, so joining activities onboard is a big plus for us. Embarkation and ... Read more

I love this itinerary and the ship is similar to CC Summit. Great crew!! Ship was a little small for me with not as many activities as other ships I've sailed on. We had a great waiter and assistant waiter at our table (Basri and Alina) ... Read more

The ship was rather a disappointment. Compared to Carnival Breeze and Adventure of the Seas that we cruised on before, there was not much to do here. Entertainment was bleak, the "Production shows" in Coral theater with live ... Read more

I chose this cruise because we are avid Royal Caribbean / Celebrity cruisers. The Jewel of the Seas was the best option for a Southern Caribbean Cruise when compared with other cruise companies. Our family of 33 arrived a full day ... Read more

Went on a family cruise with 30 plus family members (mostly adults). We had a great time with no one thrown overboard or forced to walk the plank. Some improvements are needed/suggested - such as... Windjammer Buffet was OK but ... Read more

Kids sailed free on this sailing, which was a great savings and why we chose Royal Caribbean for this particular trip. Embarkation and disembarkation were both timely and organized. The dining staff were so great! We recommend ... Read more
