This is Geiranger Norway and my husband, myself and My Mom. 
If you can ever get to the Fjords in Norway please do. You won't regret it. 

Norway is the cleanest place I have ever been. Pristine!  It is also the most gorgeous. The fjords are so amazing and the colour is so brilliant. Flam and Olden along with Geiranger were the top three stops.

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 was between 3 and 4 stars but went with 4 because of the value you get with this ship. It isn't as big or glitzy as the other boats in the fleet but it makes due. The service was great and the staff works very hard to make your experience the best it can be. The access to the pool/bar was easy. We never had to wait or fight over pool chairs, seating at dinner/buffet. The entertainment was ...

The Jewel is definitely just that!!!! A JEWEL. We loved this ship and had a marvelous cruise. Met some terrific staff from bar service to My Time Dining service. The Diamond Lounge is a great place for spending a couple hours meeting new friends and relaxing. Aline, the liaison in the DL, is a tremendous asset to RCI and the Jewel, as is Mark who is a great server. We also fell in love with ...
