November 2014 - 7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Cruise on Jewel of the Seas
This was our first cruise with Royal Caribbean. The ship was beautiful and extremely clean compared to the Carnival cruises that we have been on. The staff and crew were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the food in the main dining room. Most evenings the entertainment was held in the centrum which was too small to accommodate the number of guests on the ship. As a result, many guests had to stand in the hallways and on upper decks and had difficulty seeing the show. The small dance floor made it impossible for everyone to join in. The music was also very repetitive. The same musician playing the same few songs over and over. The shore excursions booked onboard are crowded and overpriced. My advice is to check out ports on trip advisor and book private tours. Overall, we enjoyed the cruise and would recommend it to others.
