I chose this ship because I love Christmas. But There is not Baby Splash Zone....I saw older babies with swim diaper in the pool and men (lifesaver) don't complain about older babies that worn swim diaper. The lifesaver allowed these children in the pool. The salesperson from Royal Caribbean could advice before you take a decision for booking. I suggested you choose some ship that offer Baby ...

I have traveled on cruises for 30 years, on med priced and high priced lines. I have been on Oceania, Regent, Crystal, Silver Seas, Celebrity .This past trip was on Royal Caribbean and they need all the help they can come up with. The two biggest issues are food and lack of cruise Director. The quality of food served from fruit to meat makes one question where is quality control. I know ...

We booked this cruise 18 month prior to celebrate big Birthday, hoping that by Dec 2021 the world would be done with covid. Unfortunately, covid is still rampant and RCI did not do much to prevent spread of infection on their ship. They should have kept the 50% capacity and enforce mask wearing and distancing, instead they cut activities and left people to fend for themselves. There were close to ...

I read a lot of reviews for the Jewel of the Seas before sailing, and on this 8-night Eastern Carribean cruise, the ship mostly met my expectations, with two exceptions. Let's go through the good, the bad, and then the unexpected. Me: 8-night Eastern Carribean cruise; third-time cruiser in my late-20s, on a family vacation. THE GOOD First, the good. As multiple reviews mention, the ...

Jewel of the Seas had such low rates we decided to work it in between our other Royal Caribbean cruises and were so glad we did! The ship was in excellent space, carpets, furnishings had a new feel to them. Service was outstanding, even the maintenance workers who do not come in contact that often with passengers were awesome and friendly. The ship had a very happy feel to it. The evening ...

Let me begin by stating that I travel solo and have done so since 2013. This was to have been my first post pandemic cruise, but was too excited to wait and sailed the end of September on Allure. I had the at home covid test from the previous cruise and called e-med to ensure that it would still be valid. Luckily it was. This cruise was going to be a bit different due to mobility issues. I ...

Really can not talk enough about the staff and crew. They were very friendly and even remembered your name. They made sure you were taken care of. If you needed anything they made sure you got it. Bartenders were friendly and professional and great to talk to. Overall the crew and staff were great. The food was not the greatest. I was really disappointed on the food. We only ate at ...

I reside in South Florida with my wife and almost 5-year-old son, who has Asperger's. We recently returned from a Thanksgiving cruise on the Jewel of the Seas. We generally cruise about 1-2 times a year. Our last cruise was an 8-night cruise to the ABC islands on the Adventure of the Seas in December 2019. I booked this cruise in December 2019 after Royal Caribbean announced that they were ...

At first I had a cruise booked on the Rhapsody of the Seas from Venice to Barcelona which got postponed, and then cancelled. I then wanted to do the Harmony but I was lead to believe Italy did not want UK residents due to high Covid levels, so eventually settled for the Jewel out of Cyprus. So we travelled by train from Nottingham to London and then on to Gatwick the day before and stayed at ...
