April 2015 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Jewel of the Seas
After traveling on several cruises and among several different cruise lines, I was very pleased with the Royal Caribbean experience. The service was outstanding at dinner and in the staterooms. There was no pressure on the cruise to purchase alcohol, although there was a lack in the number of servers asking for alcohol during the daytime/poolside hours. In contrast, the cruise was at a new island every day. Being at different islands takes away the feeling of being "trapped" on a cruise. Great itinerary. Great meals. The shows after dinner were weak at the start, but greatly improved by the last 3 days. Although there were plenty of spaces for entertainment, there was a lack of late night dancing, likely from layout of a few of the bars (all were in a row and only about 10-15 people there when they could hold 100s).
