Jewel of the Seas

March 2017 - Jewel of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

Incredible Trip

We arrived in San Juan the day before we left port.  Old San Juan is always enjoyable.  The boarding process was incredibly simple and fast.  In fact, I think it took a total of 5 minutes from entry to the Royal Caribbean building until the time we were on the boat.  The boat was very clean and simple to figure out.  The ports of call were incredible, especially St. Lucia and Barbados.  The boat was not as exciting as others we have been on, but we enjoyed it nevertheless due to the fact that we were in port every day.  In St. Thomas, we went to Megans Bay which was simply beautiful.  St. Kitts we shopped and stayed on the boat.  Antigua we booked an excursion through the boat and rode horses.  Kids really enjoyed that.  In St. Lucia, we booked Benny's Boat Tour.  If you go to St. Lucia, you have to do this tour.  Possibly the best tour we have ever done.  We did the volcano, the waterfall, snorkeled and ate at his Mother's house on the beach.  He made it so that we were first to the Volcano and by the time we left, there were over 200 people in line.  Same thing with the Waterfall.  We were the only people there.  And his moms house with the lunch and the view can't be beat.  In Barbados, we did swam with the turtles on Cool Runnings.  Like Benny's Boat Tour, these people are amazing.  They take such good care of everyone from little kids to grandparents.  The last day on the boat was a sea day and we enjoyed the pool and the casino.  The food was quite good, and Chops Grill, the steak house, was amazing.  All in all, and unforgettable week.

Carnival Triumph

July 2016 - Carnival Triumph to Caribbean - Western

Great time on the Triumph

We had an excellent time on the Triumph which went to Cozumel, Mexico.  Getting on the ship was a little slow, but once on the boat, we had a great time.  There were 3400 people on the boat, but never felt crowded.  We were always able to get a chair by the Pool.  Our room was clean, steward met our needs, the bathroom seemed larger than normal.  Several of the musicians on the boat were excellent, including the country singer who played classis country and was significantly underemployed.  The food was fine, the burgers were awesome, and the pizza rocked.  The casino was enjoyable and the dealers were friendly.  We have been to Cozumel several times and went to Paradise Beach which was amazing.  Getting off the boat was efficient.  Overall, we had a great time.

sblackfl's Tips

Bridgetown, Barbados - Book Cool Runnings. The are incredible and the staff treats everyone so well.
Castries, St. Lucia - Book Benny's Boat Tour. You will not be disappointed. Possibly the best excursion we have ever done.
Carnival Triumph Carnival Triumph - Understand that it is an older ship. If you are expecting 5 star treatment, don't take a cruise.
