Cruiser852's Past Cruises

Jewel of the Seas

November 2016 - Jewel of the Seas to Transatlantic

Transatlantic Voyage

Overall, the ship was in great condition and well run.  Captain Liz runs a tight ship.  We learned that Captain Liz is only 1 of 5 female cruise ship captains in the world.  We saw her quite often as she willingly engaged with the passengers through the cruise.   The voyage was quite smooth, however as a former Navy man, I was hoping for a little bit of rough seas so I could reminisce.  The only negative with any cruise is that once you familiarize yourself with the ship, the cruise is over.

Rhapsody of the Seas

July 2016 - Rhapsody of the Seas to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

My Venice & Geek Island Cruise

Overall, our trip was great.   It seems to cater to the more active set, but not necessarily the younger set.  We saw a lot of older brave souls taking many of the tours.  While each of the ports were really fantastic, a lot of the tours involved lots of walking and climbing which hampered those who really wouldn't be able to keep up with the group.  However, in their favor, they did a great job of describing the tours which prevented signing up for a tour that might well have been difficult to fully participate by some guest.  .

Adventure of the Seas

October 2015 - Adventure of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Our Latest Cruise Adventure

Our stateroom was very nice, but most of all, the room attendant was fantastic.  His name was Donald and I felt he was almost invisible until we needed something.  Like magic, he was there when needed and took care of whatever it was we wanted.   Personally, we prefer the early seating with a table of 6; to me, more than six makes it difficult to carry on any dinner conversation.  We were originally assigned to a table of 8, but a quick visit to the Maitre de solved the problem and we were reassigned to a table of 6.  We had great dinner companions.  

 

The ship was clean and the restrooms were clean.  On this cruise, we all had to deal with several rain showers, however after each shower, the deck crew was right out there mopping up and drying the lounge chairs.  

 

Overall, our cruise was wonderful.  Even a bad day (which we did not have) on a cruise is way better than a good day at work.  The only negatives that probably relate to me personally as as follows.  I am a short person.  I wondered who on earth decided to install urinals in the men's room at the height they were.   Smoking is allowed in the  casino, therefore we did not spend much time there.
