Lower your expectations and they might exceed them
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
My time dining has diluted the dining experience - servers don't see you every night and don't get to know you like they used to. Our waiter was so-so; our assistant waiter was great and walked over even when we weren't at his table.
Prebooked (and prepaid) couples massage - my wife's was OK, mine felt like I was getting a massage from an untrained person who had no business charging me for a massage. When I complained and wanted to enforce the 1--% satisfaction guarantee on the wall - they balked because I had prepaid and offered me a 20 percent More discount. So as not to embarrass my wife, I walked away. Mistake. RCCL will not respond to me. A word to the wise, get your massages on land for half the money or seriously lower your expectations.
The Jewel also does some lounge acts in their atrium - very loud and bothersome in cabins close to atrium. - They did do a very nice 4th of July patriotic program - a sing along with old standards - wife loved that.
Debarkation very smooth -was at SJU airport VERY early.
I guess I have to lower my expectations with RCCL - the 150 percent surcharge we paid to be in a suite was mostly for naught - all we really got was a larger room. Celebrity obviously feels better, and their suite product is not just slightly better, it is orders of magnitude better. Less
