May 2015 - Jewel of the Seas to Alaska - Inside Passage
This was my first cruise, and the service in the restaurants and throughout the ship was first-class. Every crew member was cheerful and always greeted me. However, there were three negatives. First, the check-in process was long and torturous. It could easily discourage any traveler. Second, when it came time to disembark the ship in Victoria, it was another long and torturous process, and we stood for a minimum of 45 minutes in a narrow, cramped and stuffy corridor. Third, the price that was charged for my 11-month-old grandson was more than I paid for my fare. That is unacceptable and, for that reason alone, I would discourage anyone from using Royal Caribbean.
