Great Family Cruise
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
graduations of our 3 children ages 17.19 and 21. We have sailed many times and are loyal RCCL fans. The Jewel is my favorite ship-lots of windows ,easy to get around and not too big. We did my time dinning and loved it. We had the same waiter almost every night "walter" and never had to wait for a table. It really took the pressure out of having to be at dinner at a scheduled time,especially with 5 of us getting ready.
We had 2 outside rooms with a joining door that was very nice. The food was great as always and we did both Chops and Potofinos and loved them both. The ports were great although we had rain in Roatan. We went on an Island tour anyway and the island was very pretty and green. We had lunch in a local restaurant and ate the most fresh fish I have ever had. We stopped at the cameo factory on the way back to the ship and it was very interesting and I bought a beautiful cameo necklace with freshwater pearls. In Panama we did the Indian village and waterfalls which More was so interesting and very different-nice to see different culture and the waterfalls were great. In Costa Rica we did white water rafting and a zip line tour-it was a full day and very exciting. In Grand Cayman the weather was kind of rainy so we shopped and went out for lunch. The shows were good and the crew very helpful and happy.
The weather was cool the first and last day but warm and sunny the rest of the time. We loved the Seaview Cafe-it was never crowed and the food was great and fresh-love to sit outside and eat. We carried off our own luggage because we had an early flight and it was very easy and quick. We were at the airport by 8:30am.. Loved the Jewel so much we booked her for a Transatlantic Cruise in Sept-This time no kids!! Less
