7 Night California Coastal (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 03, 2015
Ship: Jewel of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8516
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

This was our first time on Royal Caribbean and we were both pleasantly surprised. The ship was beautiful and the staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful at every turn.  The balcony cabin on the 8th deck was comfortable with plenty of storage and the shower even had a glass door. The itinerary was fantastic with an overnight in San Francisco.  We rode the cable cars, ate crab cocktail on Fisherman's Wharf, and enjoyed a sundae at Ghiradelli Square.  I'm giving it 5 stars because this was a cruise we'd been looking forward to, particularly since RCCL rarely sets sail from southern California.

You can walk to the aquarium if you're healthy. It's 1.6 miles. You get a military discount, but you have to ask for it.
