Beautiful Ports of Call by gmyers1139

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Good time, overall. The ship is getting a little worn, carpet in hall was stained and dirty in places.

Fabulous trip! by JandTM

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Jewel of the Seas / Destination: Transatlantic

Even though our itinerary had to be changed from Valencia/Lisbon and the Azores to The Canary Islands and St. Maarten to avoid a storm, we had an absolutely amazing time.

Great trip - but - the cabins need work by vstansell

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

Except for the poor condition of our cabin, we were very pleased and will consider other Royal Caribbean ships in the future.

Fantastic Journey by mauityme1

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

I fortunately our ship was hit with Norovirus, the staff did contain it but there were a lot of foreigners who did not speak English and personally sanitation levels vary across different countries, so expect to be vigilant, and don’t use public restrooms, and touch anything like railings or elevator buttons

Norovirus by italy53lv

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

After 3 days onboard a Norovirus outbreak got me very sick. I was confined to my cabin and missed tours in Athens and Mykonos. Many passengers were sick as the outbreak spread. On day 6 there was a second outbreak and many more passengers became sick. This ship has had several outbreaks in recent years. Read about it on the internet.

Disappointing Cruise Line by mesascootergirl

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

Tip: use Carnival Cruiselines and dont book through 3rd parties! We started off being lied to, by the representative at the time of our booking. We specifically requested that we wanted connecting rooms that share a balcony, and she told us that the state rooms we chose had this - they did not. We were told that there was a self service laundry facility on each deck so we could wash some clothes midway through the cruise - Royal Caribbean does not have self service laundry on ANY of their ships. The nightly stage shows were amateurish and boring. The tables in the Windjammer buffet dining room are filthy, and the staff washed them down between passengers without rinsing them in bleach water, so you could practically see the germs spreading. The bars, restaurants, buffet, and any other food/drink area on the ship closes early- so if you're used to being able to get something th o eat or drink at any time on a cruise, this ships not for you. There's more, but this gives you an idea. I won't be booking thru or sailing with RC again. I'm going back to Carnival where my expectations are always exceeded.

Exceeded All Expectations! by alishaoverton

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

Jewel of the Seas is a great ship if you are looking for something smaller in size, less crowds. It's due for more renovations in some areas - cabin furniture/fixtures. I was also surprised by some of the fees charged for things that were basics in the past - but that's the cost of business. Overall though, it was a perfect stay. Balcony room is ALWAYS the way to go if you can fit it into your budget. Waking up to a new port/destination and taking it all in from your balcony is PRICELESS. It was the best way to see the "bucket list" destinations of Italy and Greece so that you can decide which places you'd like to return to. Lastly make sure to book an excursion every day if you can so that you can get the best feel of each destination...it will make the trip that much better.

Ports of Call Superb! JEWEL OF THE SEAS ENTERTAINMENT AND SERVICE AVERAGE by FieldMartial23

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

This is our 2nd Royal Caribbean cruise. Plus this was our 11th or 12th cruise. Will return to Oceana or Celebrity. They both know service and entertainment. Ports of Call Superb! JEWEL OF THE SEAS ENTERTAINMENT AND SERVICE AVERAGE (NOTE: Survey should separate ship service and entertainment (stars) from ports of call! - This would provide a better metric from which to judge).

Amazing Greece Cruise by kaiyom

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

This cruise was the best that we’ve been on so far. We enjoyed the service, ports, and activities tremendously. The entire experience would be incomplete without the amazing work of the staff. Our waiter Anderson was fantastic. He made us feel at home except without all the worry or stress. Our assistant waiter Mihai, was just as amazing, remaining unbelievably happy no matter how many requests we gave him. Our room serviceman Made also made us feel at home. When we lost something in the trash he came and brought it to us immediately. What made the cruise even better was the kindness of the staff we only met a few times. People like Jose, Velina, and Humberto were very helpful and extremely friendly to us, providing us company when needed. Overall, the cruise was an amazing experience that wouldn’t have been possible without the fantastic staff.

Wonderful Mediterranean cruise fun time for me and my spouse along with great Port of calls. by jvtull

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

A wonderful Mediterranean cruise fun time for me and my spouse along with great Port of calls (first European cruse). We enjoyed the food and the staff was great. Did not hang out by the main pool area spent our time in the Solarium area, ok, but at times we got a whiff of odor from the restroom if you were lounging near it when someone entered. We have cruse the Caribbean a lot. The late-night parting on this trip was not so much but it was not for a lack of trying, Not a party crowd more laid back. Again, still had a great time on Jewel of the Sea

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

Overall I enjoyed the cruise food was excellent staff was great! The only down fall is the pool areas. If you are looking for fun fun like Carnival cruise you will not get that on this ship it's more laid back and relaxing.
