We wanted to try RC and an aft cabin. The Jewel had just been refurbished. It was absolutely beautiful! Easy to get around and the crew was fantastic! Love Love Love the Solarium. Salt water, adult only pool with very comfy chairs. The aft balcony 8170 was spacious with two lounge chairs and table and two reg chairs and table and still room to move around. It was just to darn hot! ...

We wanted to see our Granddaughter off before she left for Rome as she is one of the performers. Best decision ever!! The entire cruise was well worth it. Lots to do on the ship. Excellent food in the Tides dining room with great service from our head waiter, Rommel and his assistant, Coswin. All of the waiters put on fun performances. We enjoyed our experience at the new Japanese restaurant, ...

Chose this first cruise after dry dock for a short getaway and the private island and Key West R&R. The ship is a nice size. Having an aft balcony I missed aft elevators but the walk is doable and counters the food consumption. There were contractors on board but rarely seen. There were some register issues at the bars and a room service snafu, but everyone was cheerful, apologetic and worked ...

Why is it that 5 days at work drag, but 5 days aboard a ship fly by? Embarkation (vip) was a breeze, except for the confication of my rum. (oh well I tried). RCCL is EXTREMELY SECURE about alcholol. We saw them even open up packs of soda to make sure it was just cans of soda. We were on board by 11 am, eating lunch and touring the ship. This ship is awesome. My favorite place was the covered ...

I've been planning this cruise since May of last year ever since my BF and I sailed the RC to Bermuda. We were so impressed that I decided that the next cruise, I will take my kids with me to let them have the time of their lives. I knew that NCL was not going to be as glamorous as Royal but my kids wouldn't know the difference. Embarkation was quick and easy. We met up with a CC family who's ...

The first time was the last Partial Transit Panama Canal in April 2009. We live about 5 hours from the port so we drive and stay overnight at the Marriott Biscayne Bay.

Although I am not a fan of the short cruises we had a chance to go on the Jewel of the Seas for a Friday to Monday 3 night cruise. Not a regularly scheduled cruise it was a one time chance to see this ship. Since we live in Ft. Lauderdale it is an easy trip to the Port of Miami. We booked this cruise 2 weeks before sailing. We have been on several cruises with RCCL before but never sailed the ...

Will make this short and sweet. We decided to take a short cruise on RCL out of Miami. The ship was in fantastic shape and very clean. The room was similar to past staterooms we have been in. VERY smooth and quick embarkation. The buffet food was fine. The food in the MDR was average--not good, not bad. Service was good but we missed such things as being addressed by ...
