We added a bit of Christmas to our cabin by bringing a small battery operat
We loved the little mouse we got in our cabin.

Just got back from the December 22 Southern Caribbean cruise aboard the Jewel of the Seas. The cruise was awesome with a perfect itinerary.

This was our second recent cruise on RCI. Our last one was on the Serenade of the Seas which is the same class as the Jewel of the Seas. While basically the same ship, the Jewel lacked the Pub which we loved on the Serenade. Other than that the ships were identical.

This cruise was over Christmas and the RCI did a great job decorating the ship for the holidays. They also had holiday themed events (singing Christmas carols in the Centrum).

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 4B

The cabin is your basic Royal Caribbean cabin. The storage is pretty good. Putting your bags under the bed really helps. The cabin was very clean but the glass on the shower had a huge white discoloration which looked pretty odd. Cabin service was very good.

Port Reviews


We roamed around the port on our own. It seemed pretty safe but the taxi and tour guides were quite pushy.
