We sailed out of San Juan January 24, 2016 on Jewel of the Seas. We stayed a night off of Condado Beach, which was a wonderful location with lots of shopping, beach, park and restaurants - even a Walgreens nearby. Costs of cabs varied - ... Read more

This was only our second cruise and we looked forward to going since our last cruise was sixteen years ago when we got married on the Grandeur Of The Seas. The ship is stunning in my opinion not dated or run down like some have ... Read more

Returned last weekend from a southern Caribbean sailing aboard the Adventure of the Seas. The experience earns mixed reviews from me. As for many of the public areas (Champagne bar, Schooner bar, Viking Crown Lounge), there is a definite ... Read more

Flew from Tampa, non-top to San Juan via JetBlue landing mid morning with plenty of time to get to port. Taxi system from SJU is very smooth and flat rate of $27 for our party of 4. Arrived at a very congested and confusing Pan AM port ... Read more

Overall we enjoyed this cruise a lot, however, I feel that it would not been as enjoyable if it had not been for the number of ports of call (5 in a seven day cruise with only one day at sea) therefore a lot of time was not spent on the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary --wanted to go way south to guarantee warm weather. After reading reviews, we were a little apprehensive. We were pleased to find the ship in excellent condition. Personnel were charming. Did ... Read more

This was our tenth cruise on RC. (We've also done Celebrity and Carnival one each). Just a disappointment. I tried to understand that "times have changed" and costs DO go up in this economy, but the level of service has ... Read more

It's interesting to read reviews on this Puerto Rico departing cruise. I can see why a first-time cruiser would be amazed by all this ship has to offer. What we saw however was a cruise line cutting corners all over the place. Prior to ... Read more

SUNDAY Dec 27 San Juan The line for the taxis from the airport was very slow. They hand you a sheet with prices. There was a celebration in old town so traffic was mostly stopped. Our driver was terrific. He used side roads and we could ... Read more

Of the 5 cruises I've taken, 4 have been on RCI. With each of those cruises the quality of the food has decreased and the sales noise has increased. This revenue squeeze has finally showed me I need to move on from RCI. I do appreciate ... Read more
