"I had a hard time deciding what to do before the cruise and all of the excursions were sold out due to two Royal Caribbean, and one carnival ship in port.I will say the vendors have gone through the pandemic with no cruise travelers and they need the boost to the local economy so please consider spending some money on the island with the locals...."Read More

Caribbean Cruise on the Jewel

This trip consisted of two six night cruises back to back. The fist one did Costa Maya, Cozumel and Bimini. The second was the same except Nassau was substituted for Bimini. We had not been to Bimini so this was a treat as we have been to most ports of call in the Caribbean many times. It would be good to go there again and take a taxi into the town rather than going around to the various ...

I would rather get a root canal then travel on this ship ever again or in fact any Royal ship. I felt it was worse than Carnival. Low budget with rude families that thought they were home in the ship's lounges - barefoot! No following the dress of the evening: Formal meant hats, shorts, no collared shirts and sneakers!!! No one said a word to these people from RCL! THIS WAS THE WORSE 6 DAY ...

This was my 4th Royal Caribbean Cruise but, my first with kids. I have only cruised with Royal Caribbean and have sailed on the Sovereign of the Seas (Sovereign Class Retired), Enchantment (Vision Class), and now the Jewel of the Seas (Radiance-class). The Jewel is a Radiance-class cruise ship and holds about 2500 passengers. This was my first cruise since 2015. We traveled to Miami to board ...

Need Better Mobility Accesd at Piers

We chose this cruise because it was one of Royal's smaller ships. My husband and I are elderly and didn't feel that we would be able to navigate a mega ship. Everything on the ship was great. Our only complaint deals with transportation on the piers. Since we are both mobility challenged (not requiring wheelchairs) we found it almost impossible to navigate the piers. Royal should provide ...

We chose this cruise at the last minute as I was suddenly given a week off. We were on a balcony on the deck eight, mid-ship. Some things about the cruise were due to Oh Fortuna such as calm seas, perfect and not humid weather and aside from a two hour delay leaving Antigua due to a passenger sustaining a broken ankle, all ran smoothly. The ship is very well laid out. There are eight ...

I booked this trip whilst onboard Jewel OS in November. My hubby was working so this was a solo trip. Lovely cabin 7022 with oversized balcony - decent location. I love this ship and her sisters, perfect size and not popular with kids! The ship was spotless and in excellent shape (obviously six weeks offline were put to good use). I had a good time but there were a few differences than last ...

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 ...

Surprisingly Cute Ship and Great Holiday Experience

I thought the Jewel was a very cute ship for a shorter family cruise. It was our first cruise back into post pandemic shutdown. It was the week before Christmas and the ship was beautifully decorated. It was my family's first cruise and the ship was just the right size for them to figure out as newbies. The length of the cruise was just right, not to long or too short for new cruisers as well. We ...
