Loved the cruise, loved that the Captain was visible, how friendly and professional the crew was. Just wish they would have better entertainment and activities.

Casino allows smokers to use as a lounge. Very very Smokey. Poor game choices.

Relaxing sunny cruise by cruiseboomer

This was a perfect length cruise for me and the guest demographics were just about perfect. Very few children on board and I did not experience unruly or excessively drunk people.

It was fun!! by jimfassio

Verified Review

It was a great cruise, and the Jewel seem to fit for my lifestyle. I enjoyed the bar and entertainment in the Centrum but it seems small for the crowds that would gather. I also enjoyed Jody Wade in the Schooner Bar.

Relaxing & laid back cruise. by eileengrant20

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

First night was a little rocky (which there is nothing to avoid that). I have come to realize that I enjoy some larger ships compared to this one. There was a bit of construction in Nassau, Bahamas but it was still a beautiful island. Labadee, Haiti was a lot of fun! This port had a lot of activities to do and a lot of relaxing things to do. Overall, it was a nice, relaxing cruise for us.

So much fun by jlehcruise

Really enjoyed our first cruise. Of course it seemed too short. Good variety of age groups aboard this cruise, not overwhelmed by small children or the 21 year old drink til you drop crowd.

OK by sliderjmt

overall the cruise was OK but like i said the ship was not big enough for all the people on-board. we had to stand for some of the things going on. I wish there had been more ports to see also.

Jewel of the Seas - 9 Night Southern Caribbean Cruise by toma114

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Flew into Miami a day early & stayed in YVE Hotel off Biscayne Blvd, about 5 minutes from the port. Walked to Bayside Marketplace that evening, great place to hang out, and you can see the cruise terminals from there. Caught an Uber the next morning & arrived about 10:30am at Terminal G. Checked our bags with the porter, went through check in, and were on board by 11am.

Lebadee is lovely by lmorand

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

RC charges for room service, they did not last time we were on and had a balcony, room service is nice with a balcony. Staff and guests were so nice. Itinerary was great. Food was lovely. Did kinda feel like a chipmunk storing food for when there was none. Ice-cream needs to be 24 hrs. Minor issues, petty really. The ship and the trip were great.

We took this cruise with friends with the intent of just relaxing and decompressing. It met and in many cases exceeded our expectations. Great job by all. Kudos to RCCL.

Pluses and Minuses by ysdoow

Internet streaming was a joke. High price but no streaming. Staff were not friendly. Ship is older with less for kids. Not enough pool space on sea days.

A lot of sea days with only four stops. A good cruise for people who want a relaxing vacation and have never visited the ABC islands.

Perfect short cruise for our first cruise ever. Entertainment was excellent and plentiful. While the facilities show their age, the ship's cleanliness and passionate crew members more than make up for it.
