December 2015 - Jewel of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern
This is my 5th Royal Caribbean cruise and the most disappointing. The ship was smaller than expected, but I was more interested in the itinerary than the ship itself. The service in the dining room was extremely slow.....dinners took over 2 hours. It seemed as if the wait staff was completely overworked....perhaps they cut down on the number of people.
The shows, which are usually really good, were awful. We walked out on several of them. There just didn't seem like there was as much to do as on other ships.
I will say that the cruise director staff put on an amazing event for Christmas eve......tons of balloons and confetti dropping. It was really a great event and very fun.
