Cruise Great for Island Visits

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

RCL did a good job with the 'things to do' but overall was short of service in some areas.  Although, cabin Stuarts, and consistent waiters and bar tenders were exceptional (given they knew you and were assigned to you).  Cruise food was average at best.  It appears that RCL is now cutting corners with 'high end' dinner food plates and only offering these in the unique restaurants that require additional fees/charges.

Jewel of the seas is better than most RCL ships, however as compared to the competition (Princess, Carnival). it is lacking....
