I like the cruise because from the very start where we had to check our luggage in to the direction to our room was an experience that even the less experience travelers would feel comfortable. I have cruise with several of Carnival cruise lines as well as the Celebrity X. Each cruise line has its own "crowd pleaser." I cruised with Carnival when I was thirty years younger and that seem to be just what the doctor ordered. Later in life I cruised with Celebrity X. and seem just a little more "laid back". Now years later I decided to try Royal Caribbean cruise line. The Jewel of the Sea was fantastic. It had something for everyone from toddlers to senior citizens. I was estatic to see their hand sanitation policy before entering the dining areas.  It was a smooth ride, I never knew when we were docking or taking off.

Ship Quality
Very clean and neat.
Food and Dining
Excellent variety. Something for everyone. Benedick has the gift to make you feel comfortable in your choice of foods.
Service and Staff
Outstanding staff. My statesroom attendant was outstanding. Israel Roberts was an assest to our cruise.
Execellent entertainment, We didn't participate in all of them but we enjoyed what we did join in.
Children's Programs
Didn't have children with us but what I heard and saw, it seem to be just fine.
Onboard Activities
"Ditto," entertainment and activities comments.
Destinations and Excursions
Superb destinations. Most of our excursion reservation was done on shore. You had to be careful, but it was ususally a little less expensive.
Cabin / Stateroom
San Juan, Puerto Rico
We took the bus down town then took the trolley around town. A good inexpensive way to start your vacation.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Nice Island. It definitely need more tourist attraction to build it up.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Nice island. I will leave it at that
Oranjestad, Aruba
I thoroughly enjoyed Aruba. I would like to revisit.
Willemstad, Curacao
Colorful.. Up and coming.


Any room is a good room on this ship.
