Had a fabulous cruise with happy friendly passengers. Unlike the review I have just read we didn’t encounter any feral passengers, they didn’t over fill their plates and didn’t mix their meal and dessert onto the same plate. Now getting back to the cruise the ship was very clean, our cabin was spotless with clean bedding and nice white fluffy towels. We enjoyed the trivia but found it difficult to ...

The Jewel is smaller, which was great. Lots of brass and wood, like a ship should be. The crew are to be commended. Pleasant, helpful, a joy to deal with. Almost everyone greeted me first. Lattitudes staff remembered me and my order after the first day. Very happy with crew. 2500 customers so the only time I had to wait on anything was lunch on sea days and the Lattitudes coffee line. Sea days ...

I am currently on the Jewel of the Seas on the TA cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Southampton. We flew to Miami on the 4th April with American Airlines. This was the first time flying with them and I was very impressed with the whole experience. There was more leg room than with other airlines we had used in the past and the boarding process was much more organised. The airline crew were very ...

I chose this cruise as an early 60th birthday present for my wife (of course I could enjoy it too!). We have managed to enjoy many cruises including TransAtlantics, although my wife has had several major operations which can affect her health, so I opted to get the long flight out of the way first and then enjoy the sailing back to the UK with the hope of no issues. Firstly, living in middle ...

Many things wrong with this ship. Very outdated Ship, desperately needs a refurbish Most guests older, not a lot of kids Specialty Restaurants Giovanni's was ok, Chops was horrific I ordered a bone in rib eye so did my wife and we got, a different cut. Staff was friendly Windjammer was not same quality as the bigger boats Too many disappointments Ship should be named JUNK ...

We are a group of 11-13 who have cruised together for two years. This year we sailed Royal Carribbean's Jewel of the Seas from March 9th to March 16th. We sailed out of Puerto Rico. Half of our group stayed at the Marriott at Miramar, close to the cruise port. This hotel is old, dirty, and expensive. I would choose another location for the price. Embarkation day was the smoothest of any cruise ...

This was my first and last cruise. I am at loss for words… As a first time cruiser I had a lot of things to learn. Just suck that it came at such an expensive price! The only reason they got a 2 is because the service was good and our room was made everyday just like we like it. The food was HORRIBLE - I work in the school system and our lunch lady made gastronomic food compare to this! ...

After reading all the negative reviews I almost did not book this old ship! I am picky, really picky and I am a true "Karen". I booked he one bedroom Owner's suite cabin. This cabin was on deck 10 and near the elevator, which after pulling a hamstring days before the cruise was extremely helpful. The towels were not exactly fluffy and yes the hot water handle fell off when I turned it on, ...

Overall, we had an very good experience. The crew was outstanding- knowledgeable, efficient and had good senses of humor. Food was a little uneven in the main dining room and certainly not to pre-pandemic standards. On lobster night, my wife and I had to laugh at the smallest tails we'd ever seen. We had a three night dining package and were disappointed in Chops Grille. It was nothing ...

Booked this cruise because of the itinerary. I planned on visiting friends in both Barbados and Tobago, which I did. The only problem with the itinerary is the San Juan departure port which is cumbersome to get to. The Jewel although one of RCI's older ships was clean and well maintained and really doesn't show her age. Some aspects like the tiny pools and small windjammer buffet do harken to ...
