Was recommended to RCL by our travel agent, was looking for 'fun, active, family friendly' trip for our first cruise. My husband is 47, myself 45, daughter 26 and son 10. We booked an inside quad stateroom (I tend to suffer from motion ... Read more

We sailed on Jewel of the Seas just this past week. We are Diamond RCCL members, (have sailed on 15+ cruises with RCCL) and DCL Platinum as well. Usually we love RCCL--we do usually go on the big boats. Oasis and Allure, but have ... Read more

I have cruised 13 times over various cruise lines. This is my second Royal Caribbean. This first time was pretty good with some issues but i thought we would try a different ship and destination. Maybe I would have a different experience ... Read more

My husband and I just returned from a two week vacation in Alaska. We flew into Anchorage, where we rented a car and began biking & hiking excursions for the first few days. We had excellent weather (65-70 degrees) and no mosquito ... Read more

After fifteen years of sailing exclusively on DCL, we finally decided to try a Royal Caribbean cruise to Alaska because of it leaving out of Seattle, and the Wonder leaves out of Vancouver. Basically, we knew it wouldn't be Disney, but ... Read more

I have cruised about 3 times before off the east coast, but nothing compares to Alaska. I plan on going back for an more extended tour soon. The Jewell needs to change their carpeting because it looks like worn out carpet from an old ... Read more

We arrived the day before departure in Vancouver and stayed at the Delta Suites. The location was great. Only $10 Canadian for the two block ride right to the dock check-in point. No line for embarkation. The Radiance of the Seas was ... Read more

I know I'm spoiled by usually sailing Freedom or Oasis class but as a LOYAL TO ROYAL cruiser I was disappointed in the condition of the ship. The emails needed paint and varnish as did most of the ship, the shower looked moldy and dirty. ... Read more

At the outset of this review I will note that this was our 28th cruise and we do not limit our selves to any one line. It is the destination and/or activity we cruise for, in this case taking out two grand daughters to ride on the WHITE ... Read more

We had cruised to Alaska 2 times. We were looking for a summer cruise and our choices were Bermuda or Alaska. We decided to do 3 days in Seattle and then take the Jewel on 7 night round trip. We mainly chose this cruise because it spent ... Read more

Overall, it was a good cruise. Alaska is very beautiful, and I'm glad we had this experience (I'm a Caribbean girl, so it was nice to come back home to the heat after a week of chill and rain, but Alaska is very striking). I love ... Read more

My husband and I planned this cruise a year in advance to spend quality time with our siblings. We wanted everything to be perfect. We booked 4 rooms on the 8th deck in the back of the ship for panoramic views on the Jewel of the Seas as ... Read more

Even before we traveled, I was starting to have mixed feelings about Royal Caribbean. The first surprise came when I tried to book an excursion and the second was an extremely unfortunate situation with an event. RC’s approach to ... Read more

In 2007, we sailed Radiance in the Caribbean, so when I saw that the ship was in Alaska for the very cruise we wanted I jumped at the chance to go on her again. We did a 4 night pre-cruise land tour from Anchorage to Denali, Talkeetna, ... Read more

The cruise allowed me to see some of the most beautiful places in Alaska. We went on great excursions ( whale watching, zip line at Icy Point). The ship is average. It is a bit dated but I thought of it more as mode of transportation more ... Read more

You get to see more on a one way cruise than on a roundtrip, with longer days in ports, and calmer seas because you are not sailing very far, so you travel slowly. Overall, RCL is our favorite of the 5 cruise lines we have tried. My ... Read more

Although I could find a bunch of tiny things to complain about, I'm not going to do that. There are always little glitches here and there, especially for first time cruisers (which we were). My husband and I sprang for two cabins for our ... Read more

We were very excited about this cruise. My husband had been on cruises years ago when single, but for myself and our daughter, this was our first cruise. I was impressed with the check in procedure and although a little time ... Read more

The ship is beautiful and has everything you need. The food was very good and we went to several of the specialty restaurants and they were fabulous! We have never done this before but were very pleased with the value. The staff is ... Read more

I have been a dedicated Loyal to Royal cruiser for over 10 years. I hope to NEVER cruise with them ever again. For starters, the entire on-line process was not user friendly. I am not some luddite and I am getting an MBA on-line. I ... Read more

The views are indescribable and 1,000 photos can't begin to capture the beauty. The vastness of it all hard to believe without seeing it. The ship is older, but beautiful and for the most part well maintained. Service was impeccable! ... Read more

Let me begin by saying that we are not seasoned cruisers, but we thought that cruising would be the best way to visit Alaska. We arrived in Seattle a few days early and stayed at Inn at the Market near Pike Street. It's a very nice ... Read more

this ship and cruise far exceeded my expectations. We stayed one night in Seattle at the Inn at the Market before leaving the next morning. The cruise terminal was not chaotic at all (we got there at 10:30) and were on board having lunch ... Read more
