This should have been a fun and relaxing vacation. Perhaps if I didn't have accessibility needs, it would have been. When the booking was made, we had told them I was in a wheelchair and confirmed that accessible transportation would be ... Read more

My sister and I recently did an Alaska cruise on Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas. I was part of a group that was having a genealogy conference on board, so I got a great group rate with an upgrade to a deluxe ocean view room with a ... Read more

I am not very "wordy" so this will be short and sweet! Having been on 7-8 cruises, we were impressed by how quick we went thru boarding. From walking thru the terminal doors to being on the ship was no more than 15 minutes. We ... Read more

We have sailed on Royal Caribbean five times in the last three years and twice on a different line. Embarkation was handled poorly and this was the fault of port personnel in Seattle. I did report the incident to Royal and (just as ... Read more

We are Diamond Plus on RCCL with this being our first Alaskan cruise. Over the years we have seen RCCL management make cuts to improve their bottom line and it is time to stop as the cuts are now negatively impacting their product and ... Read more

The food was terrible. We ate at Chops and had to send our steaks back 2 times and finally just told them to keep it. It was so tough you couldn't cut it. The meat served in the Tides was not good. There was too much time at sea and ... 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

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

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

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

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
