We travelled to Cyprus to pick up our cruise around the Greek Islands. The ship is one of the smaller classes but still has excellent facilities. We really enjoyed our time on the ship and it was nice that there was a limited amount of guests however having to wear a masks outside did seem a bit pointless when everyone is double jabbed and had negative tests. Highlights of the trip was the service ...

My Greek Island Cruise with no waiting in lines

DH and I had decided we would not cruise until the Pandemic was history. Then in June, along came a deal, Covid numbers were decreasing, and we booked a Greek Island Cruise for August.2021. It seemed that immediately after our booking the Covid numbers spiked to levels surpassing 2020. It seemed Greece and our departure port in Cyprus were hitting the news. So we turned off our TV and called ...

Booked as a package from the UK, so included flights and transfers which was very convenient. Testing procedure at the port very easy and efficient. Approx 500 on board and 850 crew. This resulted in some crew being a bit bothersome in "selling" services...the speciality restaurants, spa etc. Being bothered during dinner in the middle of your main course twice to try and get us to buy ...

A nice change to see experience the ship with only 25% capacity

After a wait of about 18 months, we chose this cruise as we weren't interested in a staycation and we wanted to experience a bit of warm sunshine. This ticked both boxes. The ship is looking great, crew were continually wiping down surfaces. You had to wear a mask whilst on the move bit if anyone didn't or just simply forgot ( I was guilty of that a few times ) , they gave a polite reminder and ...

Living in Cyprus we decided to try RC for the first time, from Limassol. What a wonderful surprise. We normally travel with Oceania, Regent, Seabourn but were desperate for a break away. We loved the cruise! Fantastic staff, excellent food and drinks and a reasonable cabin. No, it wasn't the same as other lines but the price wasn't either. The only downside for me was the casual dress in the ...

We couldn't wait to get back on a cruise ship and booked the Greek Islands back to back. Every staff member was beaming when we got on board and so were we! The service was unbelievable, the food excellent and the Greek Islands are a wonderful destination. The health protocol was strict but it didn't bother us to wear masks when we were wandering around the inside. We took them off when we ...

We stayed in Harwich at the Premier Inn, very convenient for port, not so much for town. But had a good stay and good breakfast. Had lunch in town at the Pier Hotel, fish and chips! Got a taxi around 11AM, checked right in and onto ship. Windjammer for lunch ( good, but rarely eat there, too many other good choices). Cabins where ready by 1:30, luggage was already there. Had an informal meet ...

Ship & Room Decor feels a bit dated, but overall is OK. I did not like the water on desks, seemed hazardous for jogging and even walking. The running track deck is not runner friendly. Our room attendant was extremely friendly and personable. The room was comfortable (deck 9 closer to the aft), but it could use a more thorough cleaning (I am a cleaning freak). I saw supervisor's checking room ...

Embarkation at Harwich, went smoothly until we were directed towards the gangway. There was a long queue with a delay of approximately 40 minutes. However, delighted with our cabin and have nothing but praise for cabin stewards Ajay and Walter and all staff onboard. Jewel is a delightful ship although in need of some revitalisation which I understand is planned for 2013. Certain parts of the ...
