Dubai cruise by Jojolinks

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Very slow cruising at 8 knots. Distances were very close so the ship just stopped and waited for the sun to rise.

Not too much to see and do at Destinations by 007CRUISER

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Destinations to visit not as interesting as european ports, or not as interesting as Caribbean ports of call.

Mostly good with a few frustrations by beckydurstenfel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

The highlights: the embarkation, service, food, room, the ports and good shore excursion options which weren't too expensive, opportunities to dance, Zoomba class, interesting converstations at dinner, meeting people from all over the world. Not so good: the internet was terrible, poor communication between who we booked cruise with and the ship, disappointment at not being able to see the wildlife on Sri Ban Yas island since it was cancelled, and the disembarkation process which was terrible.

Just ok by Patty8

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

We have taken more than 20 cruises. So we can compare with other times. We were disappointed with this one. But we tried to get the best out of it.

Cruise to interesting places. by ernimart

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Main purpose for us was to visit the Holy Land, which we did. But this time of the year was not convenient for this. Ship is good and clean, staff very nice but food and entertainment are lacking.

Cruise to the Holy Land by Oregoncruiser

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

I chose this cruise because of the ports visited. Lots of things packed into a few days. The trip was pretty exhausting but we saw a lot in a short time. The ship experience was a disappointment. The drinks are overpriced to encourage purchase of beverage plans. Lots of "nickel and diming" charges on top of cruise cost. Poor communications sometimes with staff unsure about details. Shore excursions and transfers are also over priced based on tours I was able to book on my own.

Wonderful Mediterranean Cruise! by lschneider0520

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

This cruise raises the bar for cruises--of all the cruises we've taken, this 12-day Holy Land cruise was our favorite! The ship, the staff, the food, the excursions--what a way to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, thank you, Royal Caribbean!

This was an Amazing Greek and Italian adventure. One of our favorite parts of cruising is all of the people we met on board. by cdeagans

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Overall our experience was great. Our only complaint was about the foo in the Windjammer most of the time it was cold. And the Coconut Ranger cookies are ABSOLUTELY one of the best things that I have Ever EATEN,

Great Vacay...... by cmarybeth1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

I had written off Royal Caribbean due to a very bad experience I had on a cruise some years ago on the Allure of the Seas. My friend begged me to go with her this trip so I said I'll give it a try. I found the staff on the Allure very rude and unprofessional. But this cruise has made up for all the distaste I had for your company. Still not my fav, but this cruise has made up for the terrible experience I had years ago.....

Italy & Greece Jewel of the Seas cruise by lorybethgreen

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

October was wonderful and most perfect time to cruise! The weather was ideal and didn’t rain once until the evening of our last day. The sunshine and warm weather during the day allowed us to enjoy the pool and the outdoor amenities after long excursions. The only thing I would change about our cruise would have been a different excursion in Malta. Other than that the ports were great and the sea days were welcomed after long days of walking. I would encourage everyone to be doubly prepared for the excursions as many roads are rocky, slick and uphill/downhill. Some families with strollers and young children struggled on the walks, as well as, passengers with canes and walking aids. Just choose the right excursions that offer more time. The evening shows were excellent endings to the days and always looked forward to them. I would also suggest to make certain you have committed transportation to and from the port and don’t wait to get a taxi as their prices in euro’s vary and many don’t take credit cards! One last note of caution in Santorini, there are donkey rides up and down the 600 steps on the mountain. It’s a long way! There’s a strong urine smell and the urine among poop are riddled among the steps which cause it be slick. I would suggest the tram up and down to avoid it all together. The Almalfi coast was our favorite! Great sites and beautiful scenery. There’s just so much to see and do that you want to try to do it all. The cruise was fun and enjoyable!

Smaller Ship great destinations by jillytravel2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

We normally take Celebrity or Princess but decided on Jewel of the seas. It was a smaller ship and we were very busy with all those ports. But it worked out well. Our only issue was my time dining. Being our 21st cruise we are used to getting the same waiter each night and asked but not able to achieve it. So disappointing that we didn't get to know our waiters

We choose this cruise for it's itinerary. All was great except for Corsica. As far as we're concerned, we could have stayed onboard and had a better time. Overall it was a great cruise, great family get-away. Great friends, good food and great drinks.

Great cruise, but one serious hiccup by TexasTravelMom

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

I would like to rate it higher, but honestly, the horrible rendering experience in Villefranche-sur-Mer really was so disappointing that it brought the entire experience down. To make matters worse, it was the last day of the cruise so it is what my kids remember more clearly.
