Jewel of the Seas for Families

Editor Rating
Families
4.0

As part of the 2016 upgrades, the family rooms on Jewel of the Seas were given a bit of attention, and new options were added with better views. Ocean-view and two-bedroom cabins are now options for broods. And thanks to Royal Caribbean's Adventure Ocean program, there's always something for children to do onboard, both with and without their parents.

Babysitting, for children aged 1 and above, is offered onboard Jewel of the Seas. It costs $19 an hour and takes place in the kids' club area.

Kids

Children have free reign of the Adventure Ocean and Adventure Beach on Deck 12. Together they're an indoor kids' activity space and outdoor play area with a slide and splash pool.

The Adventure Ocean activities program offers different amusements for different age groups. Children aged 3 to 5 are classed as Aquanauts and their schedule includes things like story sessions and face painting. Kids aged 6 to 8 fall into the Explorer category, and their daily line-up includes things like crazy tag and dodgeball. Children aged 9 to 11, meanwhile, are given the title of Voyagers. Their sessions are pretty similar to the Explorer sessions, although sometimes they are given extra responsibility and get to plan their own itineraries.

Also in the area is Jewel's arcade, where games like air hockey and shooter games have to be paid for.

Teens

On Royal Caribbean, teens are classed as being between 12 and 17. A range of structured activities is available for them like poolside movies and barbecues. There's also Fuel on Deck 12. This area looks like a club and has a dance floor, nonalcoholic bar and table football.
