WHAT A GEM!!!
Destination: Western Caribbean
Carly B and her sidekick Becky made sure we had lots of great activities and absolutely outstanding nightly entertainment in the main theatre (The Coral), More the productions varied from comedy to music and everything in between.
This all does not happen without exceptional leadership and the captain and his staff must work very hard to make sure everyone is happy and satisfied as there is a lot of cruise competition out there.
We highly recommend the Radiance Class of Royal Caribbean, they are an absolutely beautiful ship.
We also went on two shore excursions. In Cozumel we went on the Amazing Cozumel Race, (like the amazing race), it was a lot of fun and you get to see lots of Cozumel. The townspeople were very helpful, however we did not win, (hard to believe, ha, ha).
In Costa Maya we had a great experience on a tour by Native Choice. We did the Mayan Experience and it was nothing short of terrific. Joel, the guide, was a wealth of great information on the Mayan people. We then had lunch with a Mayan family. If you want to get a great cultural experience, this is the excursion for you. The vans they use are air conditioned and modern as it involves some travel to do this tour, but well worth it. (They do the driving.)
We have many PRECIOUS memories from our trip on the Jewel.
Thank you Royal Caribbean and Native Choice!!! Less
