With the exception of the nightly shows, we did not take part in any of the ship's activities but the activities arranged with our CC friends kept us busy. We held a cabin crawl, slot pull, luncheon and gift exchange, LCR and game days, ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers but this was our first Transatlantic. There were well over 700 Diamond Members on this cruise. They were more than willing to share their extensive cruise experiences, best ports of call and travel tips. ... Read more

Great Transatlantic cruise, nice ports of call, beautiful refurbished ship. Food in main dining room sub-par, though, and disappointing. Super, good-sized room, very clean. Calm seas, and warm temperatures, especially for November, would ... Read more

The embarkation was terrible, the port was terrible. Too much walking and winds to get to the ship. Very unorganized. The ship was an older one, but still very nice. Going into rehab soon, then coming to America. The junior suite was ... Read more

This is my sixth cruise and second this year on Royal Caribbean. The first one this year was on Allure of the Seas in a Sky Class Suite and this most recent cruise was also in a Sky Class Suite. The ship, room and room steward were ... Read more

The ports were extremely diverse sailing to Sicily, Mykonos, Santorini, Kusadasi, Athens, and the Amalfi Coast. Sicily was a modern port that we chose not to take an excursion to the older town as it seemed to focus only on shopping. ... Read more

We recently completed a seven-night Western Med cruise on Harmony, embarking in Rome on October 6. We are my 62 y.o. husband, and me, celebrating my big 6-OH on the cruise. I’d consider us well-traveled and energetic, but not ... Read more

Hi curious cruiser... We chose this cruise because of the itinerary since not many ships do Santorini and Mykonos. This was my 3rd cruise (Transatlantic Oct 2015 MSC Divina and Caribbean Feb 2016 NCL Getaway) and was on the smallest ... Read more

I chose the cruise because of the price. This was only my third cruise and my husband and I wanted to try RC to compare it to the other cruises. As far as the atmosphere and decor of the ship it far surpassed Carnival and Norwegian. The ... Read more

We just did 9 nights on the Jewel. Now let me start by saying I was getting more leery as the day came, as I have been seeing the countless bad reviews for the ship. We did not have this experience. It was my wife's first cruise and it ... Read more

This was only our second cruise so not much to compare against. We were taken back by the price of beverage package but I hear it is similar with most ships. Food was very good and service was also good. Stateroom was roomy and quite ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise, but our first one in the Mediterranean. We had also cruised on the Allure & Oasis, so we were very famalier with the large ships. We were a little concerned with some of the negative reviews, but our cruise ... Read more

We were a party of seven -- two parents/grandparents plus five young folks on a 9 day Mediterranean cruise. The Jewel of the Seas was refurbished in April, so it was in beautiful shape. Royal Caribbean put five of us in their new Two ... Read more

Let me preface this review by saying that it truly makes me sad to write such a negative review. I don't often post negative reviews (in fact, this is the only negative review I've posted about a cruise.) I'm not a person who expects ... Read more
