Jewel o the Sea

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 18, 2014


The ship was very clean and on the small side. The cruise director, cabin attendant were awesome as were the wait staff in every restaurant. Chops and Portafino were amazing and the food in these specialty restaraunts was superb! The dining room food and the food in the Windjammer was ok. Not the variety that we have had on previous cruises. The main pool area was small and therefore got very congested during activities. The comedians were hysterical but the productions shows were a little 'out there' and I actually left during one of them. The centrum was nice and they always had music playing at night but, again, crowded with lots of people so never a seat to be had. Did take the stair a lot due to elevator congestion but that could be considered good exersice and help prohibit those cruise pounds you gain. Loved the ports we stopped in. Also enjoyed having a full day in each port. The Segway tour on Barbados was amazing and the veiws were breathtaking.

Staff rude food bland!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 12, 2014


If you can find another ship that meets your budget and time frame I would highly recommend you try it. The staff wasnt very friendly at all and the food in the dining main hall was aweful. We had to eat at the buffet everyday and same old food. Nothing for kids to do if you plan on bringing any. If you go to the casino good luck on getting a drink. Room was OK and the ports were OK. If you go to Cueaco be prepared to be hounded and hounded by people. Especially a guy with a monkey who just walks up to you and puts a monkey in a diaper on your head and demands $5 for each picture you take. Puerto Rico was the dirtiest port we have ever been too. Good Luck hope this helps.

Best Vacation Ever!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 05, 2014


I had an amazing time on my cruise.  This was the first one for me and my husband so needless to say we will be cruisers for life.  The customer service was great. Ricardo our room service attendant really made my day. He ensured I had everything I neeeded and always made sure to make my special towel bed animals. 

 

Hurane & Bernard were my dining servers and they just went above and beyond to provide excellent service. I never had to ask for anything once they knew my preferences (mint tea and sourdough bread were always waiting for me).  I appreciate the care and detail everyone put in place to make our trip memorable.

Coming into our 40s

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 05, 2014


We decided to celebrate coming into our 40s by going on a 7 day Caribbean Cruise and we're glad we did! Jewel of the Seas was perfect for us, we were able to take in San Juan and all of the many ports we visited. Some of our memories include: Al our room Stewart always there when we needed him for our every need. Thanks Al! Our dining rooms experiences with Farhad and Putu waiting on us hand and foot! There was always more on the table than we should have eaten, they went above and beyond, and remembered what each of us wanted! And we can't forget Noel who started our dining room experience and still checked on us throughout the week, do it, do it! Adding to our memories was the Jamaican waiter who serenaded us with his beautiful voice at dinner in the dining room and at breakfast in the Windjammer ! We throughly enjoyed the Specialty restaurants, Chopped and Portofinos and their 1st class service. We would definitely recommend this cruise.

Jewel is a true "jewel"!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 05, 2014


My husband and I just recently returned from our 5th cruise, our first with Royal Caribben aboard Jewel of the Seas, and we would highly, highly recommend the Jewel and the Southern Caribbean cruise! The boat is smaller but you would never know it!  This was the smallest boat we had ever been on but we loved the more intimate experience - there were no lines and you still felt as though you had plenty of room - it did not feel crowded.  Our balcony stateroom was immaculate and we had a wonderful room steward.  The dining room offered quality food choices and a diverse menu.  The spa was also very refreshing!  All crew members we encountered were very friendly and helpful.  All the features of the boat were great but we have to say that the port intensive itinerary was what really made the trip spectacular!  5 ports in 5 days with huge time windows at each island made for an active yet relaxing trip.  We don't prefer too many "at sea" days so this cruise was perfect for us, with only one "at sea" day on the way back.  Overall out of all 5 cruises we've been on over the past few years, this is the only one that we've both agreed we would sign up to do again tomorrow!  Highly recommended for young couples looking for active days and relaxing evenings!

need better customer experience in dining +

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 28, 2014


Everything was nice except we were disappointed in having to dress up two nights for dining as we were on vacation and that means not dressing up. We were not told Of that and didn't bring dress up cloths , shoes, etc. We went with another couple and the dining room experience was not good. The nationality of the servers were not trained in customer service. Abrupt, rushing you to eat, taking your plates away before you finished, putting cracked pepper on another tables food then putting the cracked pepper on our table for next tume they needed it. Very awkward. SSometimes you would have main waiter

Vacation 2014

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 21, 2014


My family and I enjoyed our cruise on the Jewel of the Sea. We were a bit disappointed that the entertainement was not as diverse as we'd expected. We ported out of Puerto Rico, so the entertainment was more geared towards that population. It was not bad, it was just more salsa then we expected, lol. 

 

The excursions were awsome and lived up to our expectations. The food in the Tides restuarant was amazing and the service was excellent!! The food options at the Windjammer were just ok.

 

I'm not sure if we'll cruise this ship again, maybe on another ship........

Outstanding Time Onboard

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 21, 2014


I enjoy Royal Caribbean more than many other cruise lines becuse of the level of service and detail they give to most everything they do.  Their food in the main dining room is superior to many cheaper cruise lines and their detail in cabins and amenities make it a very comfortable experience for the money.  However, that being said, the headliners in their showroom ,were only so-so on this cruise compared to other Royal Caribbean Cruises I have taken.  But, the production shows were fantastic!

Beautiful islands!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Jewel of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 14, 2014


I really enjoyed the ports of call and the snorkeling!  My granddaughter actually touched a turtle that was swimming with us.  The jungle walk in St. Kitts I'd a worthwhile experience for anyone who has not been in the rIn forest.  Not too strenuous.  The staff aboard the ship was helpful and provided good service.  I did think there were some areas on board that showed some cost cutting efforts, but not to the point that it affected our experience.

80 Tips for Jewel of the Seas

The Seaview Cafe has the best chili ever!!!

Pianist and crew of Schooner Bar out of this world!!!

Try and do as much as you can onboard as the time goes fast!

Deck 11 the Windjammer will be your best friend for buffet style food. If you are ever late for your regular meal time then you can definitely find food.

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!

Any room is a good room on this ship.

Be sure you look where you are on the ship as elevator banks will block you way to some places and you'll have to back track.

Don't book a balcony room on 10 at the Aft of the ship...the Windjammer is right above you and you will hear the furniture move around all day and night. Book one floor down on 9. :)

The Seaview cafe has great sandwiches and is opened when the windjamer is closed, located on deck 12 in the back near the basball court and children's pool. Had a cabin near the centrium which did have a little noise doing activites but nothing really to complain about

Go to the Tides restaurant for breakfast - it offers food choices that are not available in the Windjammer in a relaxed and comfortable restaurant setting. There is a small buffet area which includes cereal muesli (awesome) in addition to ordering from a menu. The seating area for the Windjammer extends to the back of the ship - be careful when it's windy - you may lose much of your meal from the wind.

The Piano bar for late night was awesome!!!!!

Don't forget to catch a show - they're fabulous!

THAT I THINK IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS YOU DID. PEOPLE DONT SEE HOW MUCH THE CREW WORKS AND WE DO. ALL THE CREW IS WONDERFUL AND HAS BEEN ON ANY OF ROYAL SHIPS. THANKS YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE WONDERFUL FEELING WE GET WHEN WE CRUISE ON ANY SHIP.

Eat as many Meals as you can in dining room.

Breakfast in on the balcony of my room was a great way to start the day!

Don't miss the adults only pool area.

no 24 HR place to eat and pools and hot tub shut down at 10PM. which is crazy.

Don't go to dining room go to windjammer cafeteria

Enjoy dining in Chops Grille and it will be memorable!

Going to dry dock later 2014 or early 2015
