Good to Great Week on the Dawn

Just returned from a good to great week on the Dawn. We were a little apprehensive as we previously sailed on the much-newer Epic but the Dawn has a lot to offer. Getting on was a breeze, getting off was delayed ...

Review for Dec 27th sailing of RCI Jewel OTDLS

Embarkation was slow because their computer system went down. Debarkation was the quickest I've ever seen as long as you're good with wheeling your own bag(s) off yourself. Didn't like the way they made you sit ...

The brightest Jewel on the seas

This was my partner and I's 2nd cruise, but we were both too young on our first to really enjoy it fully. It was his first time with RCCL and my 2nd time. They haven't given me a reason to not cruise with them yet. ...
