We selected this cruise because of the itinerary as well as we had been wanting to try a Royal Caribbean cruise. The itinerary did not disappoint. Royal Caribbean on the other hand did. We were wanting to make this cruise a little more ... 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

At 79, it was my first cruise. Promenade knocked me for a loop. Ambiance was first class. That set the tone of the trip for me. Loved everywhere I went on the ship Too much to take in even for 10 days. Did not see it all and use it all. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. There were only 2 sea days out of 10 days. We spent the night before sailing in Old San Juan because you never know how the weather will be in Wisconsin and we had flight delays in the ... Read more

Ports of call in the Caribbean. Size of ship was good and had just been refurbished. Had a Grand Suite for the first time which was wonderful and our cabin steward was great. We had so much storage space and the bathroom had double ... Read more

Truthfully I selected this ship because of the Itinerary. I knew that the ship would be much smaller than the Oasis class ships so I was nervous about sailing on her. And what I expected was exactly what we got. Not nearly as much to do ... Read more

We chose this cruise for several reasons. Firstly, we needed a vacation, due to a colder and longer than normal Vancouver (Canada) winter. Second, we wanted to try a cruise line we had never booked before and had heard good things about ... Read more

Boarding was quick and easy as we were booked into a Owners Suite #1300, so we got to bypass the big line when we arrived at 12:15 p.m. We have cruised "many" times on the Adventure and are very familiar with the ship. The new ... Read more

They are nickel and diming you to death for everything. We are Diamond Plus and received no offers for ship tours. Probably because they are selling tours now. Windjammer food and staff were not up to RCI standards and appears they have ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the price and for the ports of call. We felt it was helpful to plan and pay for tours ahead of time. It was alittle disconcerting to be asked for a tip right as we stood in line to hand over our luggage. We felt ... Read more
