Islands were awesome, ship was okay by heppster1

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

Overall, we loved the islands. The ship was a good way to get around. I wish we had more time in each port.

Good and Disappointing by gordon15

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

Was nice to have 2 days in AbuDhabi and Dubai but disappointing not to go to Bahrain and Doha. The ship is definitely an old one but staff and food were excellent

Disappointing by mrbaker1979

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

Overall, I was disappointed with cruise. The cancellation of Bahrain and Qatar was a real bummer. The fact that the price I paid later dropped by $1,100 and RC wouldn’t give me the difference or at least some back in the form of an OBC was maddening. The crew was awesome as were the shows. I just had a much better experience on Harmony if The Seas in every aspect. I think I’m spoiled with the Oasis class ships. No more smaller ships for me. Despite all the gripes and things that occurred, I’m still a gonna be a faithful RC cruiser.

Astounding service on an older ship by Rosalove7

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

Chose this cruise based on iternary supposed to be sir yas island, Bahrain, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, and dubai. Because of safety issues a month before Bahrain was canceled and a double day in Abu dhabi was added. This was a bit disappointing but worked out just fine as we were able to explore more of Abu Dhabi. We arrived in Dubai 4 nights pre cruise as we live in Chicago where weather could be unpredictable. We arranged this on our own. Check in at the port was super organized but seemed to go very slow because of the health questionnaires . Also be aware they take your Passports away at check in and you pick them up the day before you port in Abu Dhabi which was a terrible feeling . We checked in at 11am and we did get out cards at check in which was nice. We went stright to windjammer and ate. The windjamner has lots of food options. We then walked around. I love smaller ships it easier to learn where your going. What was amazing on this ship that I'm not used to is getting to be able to go to our stateroom at 1pm. We went to our room interior 2v room 9611. It was a great size for us both plenty of storage. What we didnt like was we had a tea pot in our room took up space. Our room attendant was in the hallway Adriana she introduced herself and was superhepful and amazing during our entire cruise stay. She made animals out of towels on some days as well as a birthday cake towel on my birthday. We spent most of our time in the smoking area by the pool bar. Timothy and Jude in the pool bar area are fantastic. They got our drink order right away made us feel extremely special. In the evening we had dinner at 8:30 pm in the dining area our server Davor and his assistant Mo were beyond exceptional. Our dinner always came out quick and on point. Mo after day 2 knew what wine to always bring. This type of dining sevice was the best I've ever had on RC. The first night we had terrible wind causing the ship to be very wobble that night entertainment was a hand balancing act that was superb. The next day going to sir Bani yas island the tender was bouncey and took 15 mins to get over. We booked the safari through RC and really enjoyed it we saw giraffe, cheetahs, gazelle, lots of different birds and animals. It was worth it to us. After we layed on the beach on the free wooden lounge chairs be careful I flipped over. Also what's nice is drink from our drink package could be used here and they provided a buffet lunch. Doha, Qatar, was the next day and RC charges 10 a person to drop you off at a mall in the city center. This was terrible as I needed to be at the Islamic art museum for a tour I booked separately with Falcon Tours. After 35 mins on the bus they finally left after I argued that I didnt pay to sit on a bus but go into town and realized we should have taken a taxi. Also to exchange money we needed a passport and thank god one place accepted the copy we had on our phone. Our tour with falcon tours was amazing. The next day was a sea day which the sun chairs were quickly taken. I'm not sure how they do with a full ship as we had a hard time find lounge chairs and we were half full. The next 2 days were Abu Dhabi we did Ferrari world one day and the hop off and hop on bus the next with the grand mosque definitely visit the mosque. The last 2 days were in dubai. We did some more exploring the free bus takes you to mercato jumeriah shopping mall it's a 30 min ride. It a bus with yellow on top and red on the bottom. We ubered back. Check out was super quick. But a bit disappointing first time we had to leave by 8:30am normally we leave about 10ish. This ship was definitely our favorite with the astounding service we received in every area. Workers here seemed to really enjoy being here. In the windjammer every morning Liu hand sanitizing and Jorge servicing bring our friend a bagel when she couldnt find them. Yes this ship doesnt need renovations badly but I love that its small and easy to get to know people and be serviced like a king and queen

Dubai round trip by Roybark

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

As a cruise it's obviously still in the development stage and I'm in time they will develop the ports of call more. Some really exciting plans in place for the port of Dubai already in place. A week on Jewel is perfect, any longer would become very repetitive. We had a wonderful vacation and met some really lovely and interesting people but as I've stated, some on formal nights were embarrassing and down right rude! This was our interpretation and I'm sure some won't agree but I'll say it as I see it and all to their own 🙄

Dubai cruise by Jojolinks

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

A lovely first cruise by KateJ38

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

This was our first ever cruise and we would definitely do another one. Loved our suite, deluxe drinks package, specialist restaurants etc, which all made it more special, and gave us our own space when we needed it. Staff work their butts off. Excursions all really good. Was a fabulous week.

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.

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

Middle East cruise by janvh

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

Good cruise if you like skyscrapers skylines. Prepare you're cruise if you want to find the old original places like souq waqif in Doha where you find the local people instead of tourists in the Dubai souqs.

Wonderful experience by jedesnoyers

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

We loved the cruise and enjoyed all of the activities. The crew went over and above their duties. The food was amazing. Our room was always clean and stocked with fresh towels. Deraj kept our room in perfect order. Poetry and her helper went above and beyond their duties to give us the best service always with a smile.

Wonderful Suez Canal Honeymoon Cruise by magdasofiia

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

Even though the ship does not have as many amenities compared to the oasis class, I loved the experience. The atmosphere was very quiet and intimate. My husband and I had an excellent experience and we would sail on the Jewel of the seas again

Disappointed by dtadt

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

Will not be going on a America ship again especially Royal Carribean. Very helpfu and friendly staff but don’t get sick because we both had bad colds and when we went to the medical centre we were quoted 150 dollars each for the doctor to even look at us. Will not be sailing with these money grabbers again.
