Peaceful Relaxation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 19, 2015

For those of you who like the not so hot weather and a peaceful relaxing vacation the Alaska cruise is perfect. The Alaskan sights are amazing. I highly recommend the White Pass & Yukon Route railway tour in Skagway. You must get a room with a balcony for the perfect experience through the Tracy Arms Fjorg. If you like to gamble then since on this cruise the ship is at sea for half of the cruise the casino is open most of the time. We have taken 10-12 Royal Caribbean cruises and this was our favorite.

Royal Caribbean Set the Bar High!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 12, 2015

Wow! This cruise was our first-and it set the bar high for any expectations on future cruises.  Alaska is beautiful and we were able to have a variety of experiences on this cruise.  The scenery was beautiful every step of the way, the ports were great places to visit and the wildlife was amazing. The staff and crew went out of their way to make sure we were pampered and had a wonderful time.    We would absolutely recommend this cruise to both first-timers and experienced cruisers, and will definately be booking our next cruise with Royal Caribbean!

The cruise was very good and the food was excellent.  I didn't particular care for the rooms I would have preferred to have a balcony and they were quite smaller than on other cruises I have been on.  I didn't particular care for Orbitz (Miranda) to me there should have been more communication between our group and her.  Everytime we tried to reach her she was not available.  The ship was a little older than I expected from the pictures it looked brand new but it was not.  The inside interior was fine but to me the outside needed a paint job.  All the crew members on the ship were very nice and helpful.  The cruise itself was good, there were some areas we couldn't find so we didn't get to those.

Good way to begin a Cruising Career!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 05, 2015

There were 6 of us cruising together, ranging from 8 to 60 and we all had a blast!  The Kid Zone was great for the 8 year old, Fuel was perfect for my teen.  My husband and I are not "clubbers", so we don't like dancing, strobe lights or lounge music, so this cruise was perfect for us (we're mid-30's).  The option was there, but could be avoided as needed.  My parents loved the scenery and abundance of coffee everywhere :-).  

The food was decent, but after a week, honestly, we were all tired of the offerings, which were basically the same at the buffet every day.  For an Alaskan cruise, I would have wanted seafood of any kind.  There was none, except for a baked fish dish at dinner.  The bartenders were phenomenal. Their service, their drink preparation, their pleasant attitudes really helped to enhance the cruise experience for those of us who like to have a few cocktails.

One downfall was the location of the support bars on the windows in the enclosed areas of the ship.  Regardless of what chair you sat in, that bar was ALWAYS right at eye level, so you had to hunch over or sit straight up to see outside.   For our next cruise, I will pay the extra money for a balcony room, so we can sit and look at our leisure without having to stand or kill our backs trying to look around that dumb bar.

We didn't do any excursions, but I will say Tracy Arm Fjord is GORGEOUS!  One of the most breathtaking places I've ever been.  Overall, I would highly recommend this cruise if you are not a party person and like a quiet, more laid back experience.  From what we've been told, if you want to party the night away, go to the Caribbean on Carnival and party away!

wonderful cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 05, 2015

We have been on a few different cruises but this one was over the top.  I can't say that the cruise ship was fantastic or anything like that.  The food was good, not great and the amenities were fine.  But the scenery was over the top for sure.  The destination was what made the whole trip worth taking.  Recommend you take this trip without small children, there really isn't much for them to see and do on this type of cruise ship.  Most activities were in a colder climate and some not really very suited for smaller children.

The Solarium pool area was less crowded than the main pool on most days. The Sea View Cafe was a little hidden gym up on the 12th deck that served made to order diner food - great for a quick snack, especially when the Windjammer was closed between meals!

The Seaview Cafe has the best chili ever!!!

Before you book a certain room number, make sure you are not over a lounge area. They play music until about midnight. We didn't find the Sea View café until the 6th day of the cruise. They had the best sandwiches and snacks.
