This is our 6th cruise, 5th with Royal Caribbean. Let's discuss the ship as well as the ports we stopped at. BOSTON: If you have a chance, we suggest that you come early to Boston and explored this great city before boarding the ship. Highlights that my husband and I experienced were The Freedom Trail, Harvard, seeing beautiful architecture, going to the "Cheers" bar and wonderful dining ...

Arrived in Boston a few days early to see some sights. Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express-69 Boston St. This hotel offers a shuttle service both to/from the airport and to the cruise port for $5.00PP each leg. Used Bostontours.com to do a full day tour. They pick up at this hotel on the weekends. Took the shuttle to Black Falcon Sunday morning at 10:30 AM and is just a 10-15 minute ride. No waiting ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was the first cruise I had taken since I was a child so for all intents and purposes I did not know what to expect. Wow! I can't think of one negative thing about our 7 day cruise. The ship was extremely clean and beautiful. Dennis the cruise director did a great job, as well as Becky senior, the activities director. Staff from the bartenders to the waiters to the room attendants was ...

My other cruises were on a more casual line and only had one port vs. having 4 ports in 7 days, so this was a change for me. I also wasn't sure what to expect as this cruise had formal assigned seating at dinner.... along with formal dress dinners 2 nights. I wasn't sure that I would like having to dress for dinner or like sitting with the same people every night. OMG...what if we didn't like ...

Had a great time cruising north on the Jewel

Embarkation: Smooth as silk. We were on the ship by 12:30p. Not the most scenic port, but I'll take function over form any day. The ship: Having only been on one other cruise a year and a half ago (Allure of the Seas), we thoroughly enjoyed the Jewel. I liked all the glass and wood, and I think, at least compared to the Allure, that I prefer a smaller ship. It was a bit more ...

This was my first time doing a Canada / New England cruise. I have cruised with Royal Caribbean before. Currently a Platinum member about to become an Emerald member. I've also sailed with Carnival, Celebrity and NCL but Royal Caribbean has always been my brand of choice. I'm a solo traveler and I like it that way. Form Miami, Florida. This time around my friend Rob (everyone at Royal Caribbean ...

Embarkation was a breeze with wonderful people helping my friend in the wheel chair. I am guessing it took 45 minutes to an hour to get from the taxi to on board. Almost as good as our Disney experiances and way better than Princess. We went straight to Windjammer for lunch. The six of us had a time finding a table mainly because people were using the tables and chairs for a lounge area while ...

This is the second time we have been on Jewel of the Seas. We spent 26 days on her last year for a Baltic cruise and the Transatlantic to Boston. Our cabin steward Lloyd was excellent as well as our waiter Marsha and asst waiter Mario. Boarding in Boston is very easy. Our room was ready when we boarded the ship. So we dropped off our carry-on and went to lunch. We were traveling with ...

We just returned from our 7 night cruise on the Jewel. In general, we had a great time. I would recommend the ship and the itinerary. Some specifics: 1. First time on Royal Caribbean (RC). Overall, this was not too different from our prior cruise on the Carnival Legend. 2. We loved the nightly shows and also most of the bands that played in the smaller venues. The Suave band was very good. The ...

First, a bit about us. We are from Topeka, Kansas. This was our ninth cruise, the fifth consecutive on Royal Caribbean. The earlier recent ones were to the Baltic in 2011 on the Jewel; the Mediterranean and then Panama both on the Brilliance; and on the Oasis in 2010. This cruise seemed to us a bit off to start. Perhaps that is because our first stop, the day after departure, is a short hop. ...
