My wife and myself have just completed our second cruise with Royal Caribbean, This time on one of the smaller ships, it had good and bad points, The ship was very well run from the moment we arrived at Rome airport, RC staff took control of everything , luggage was taken and delivered to our cabin, transfers were on time and embarkation was smooth. The ship has some lovely areas lots of dark ...

Very old and run down ship. Over 30 cruises and this was the WORST ship ever.

Great deal on cruise and 4 new ports for us. Avoid this ship if you are a avid cruiser. Ship was NOT only rundown, but was VERY filthy, found a OLD plate of food under the bed, mattress was old, stateroom was dirty, no lotion in bathroom,, ran out of TISSUE with two days left in cruise, NO limes for a gin/tonic, no p-nuts for bars snacks in bar, no fresh fruit last two days,, windows were all ...

A great itinerary on a nice ship! This was our 14th cruise on the 5th different cruise line (Celebrity, Carnival, NCL and Holland America). We’ve always liked Royal and liked the southern itinerary of this cruise last year on Celebrity so we decided to book a cruise with the same itinerary. We flew in from Ottawa, Canada the day before and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites ...

Had a wonderful cruise with only a few quirks. Food was good but lacked choices, never a chair available by the pool as people saved them in spite of the rules, masking tape all over on the partition glass between our balcony and the one next door as paint had been scraped off, (good thing our friends were in that stateroom as we could see into each others balconies), One evening we were sitting ...

We chose this cruise to get points closer to being diamond. I prefer the southern Caribbean to any other area and we really like Grand Cayman. We had never been to Curacao before so the tour there was very neat. We like the tour in Bonaire and were excited to actually see them harvest the salt. Wish we could have gotten closer to the flamingos but understand that they are wild animals that are ...

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 ...

My wife and I mainly decided to cruise the Jewel because of the wonderful itinerary which included Aruba, Bonaire, nd Curacao or as many will say the ABC islands. This was a 9 day cruise. This was our 10th cruise and our 4th cruise with Royal Caribbean. We have sailed on Carnival, Royal, Princess and our last two cruises with Celebrity. We had such a wonderful cruise on the Jewel that we booked ...

About 5 years since last RC cruise, been on Princess in the interim. Last RC cruise was also on Jewel (prior to latest refurb). Ship in nice condition, good itinerary, great weather, fun to watch Super Bowl. RC has changed and not for the better. Staff numbers reduced, they work hard and have good attitudes but you can see they are stretched. Menus (buffet and dining room) are ...

Chose this cruise because of the unique itinerary. Older ship showing her age in some areas, but still quite lovely overall. We were thrilled to have a Canadian captain:) We had a wonderful large balcony right near the atrium, however the noise from the band each night was terribly loud. They had to close the fire doors to try and drown out some of the noise. Seemed to be short ...
