Review SummaryCruising direct from Boston is fabulous. No airport hassles. Trip to Bermuda on Jewel of the Seas was pleasant despite the 20 foot sea swells because of a storm. Entire staff was courteous, pleasant and very helpful. Food in main dining room was edible and forgettable and served well with a smile. Portofino meals were exceptional for the small upcharge. Entertainment was very good. Ship was very clean and spacious. I never felt like there were 2,000+ guests on the ship. The crew gave great service and made it look effortless.
Hubby and I booked this trip only two weeks before departure and did not have high expectations - we were very pleased with the entire experience. We got a cabin upgrade without requesting one to a cabin with a window. Unfortunately, being on Deck 3 had its negatives during a storm - waves blowing by your cabin window! Though I did sleep well through the continual rocking motion.
We have been raving about how great this trip was since we have returned and are planning another cruise with RC.
