This was no Jewel
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Bottom line, never again on this ship and maybe never again on Royal Caribbean. They have least a bad taste in our mouth and smell in our noses. Less

Room was a typical cruise ship stateroom. Bathroom smelled like sewer gas and the water was sometimes brown coming out of the faucet
Port and Shore Excursions
Don't bother booking a cruise on the ship. Catch a cab from the many and head to Valley Church Beach. One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. The taxi driver set a time to come back and get us and he was there right on time. We rented jet skis, swam, and relaxed. Negotiate everything......
Incredible day. Just 6 of us on the boat. We swam with the turtles, snorkel ship wreck and spent hours on the beach and playing in the water. So glad we book independently because the cruise ship sponsored excursion showed up with about a 100 packed on the boat. Did I say there was six of us.
Port town was not very good but just walk down the beach, rent an umbrella for $5 and chair for $4 each. Bar is right there and the water is great.
Catamaran Day Sail
Boring. A very slow cruise to the pitons with a 20 minute swim in a cover on the way. We were packed in like sardines. Skip this one......
