Jewel of the Seas

July 2016 - Jewel of the Seas to Europe - Mediterranean

Royal Caribbean is Great, but the locations were subpar

My husband and I have been on 5 cruises now with Royal Caribbean because they are truly very good at what they do, however this cruise was just ok.  The food was bland, the service especially at dinner was slow, and there wasn't much to do on the ship in comparison to their larger more active oriented ships.  Also, we learned that every destination always required the customer to spend more money and more time getting to the actual places to visit.  If you want to be able to get off the boat and easily walk around to places of interest, then don't choose this cruise itinerary.  We'll still go with Royal again and go on one of the larger ships, but the Jewel of the Seas was an ok experience.

zippyoboe's Tips

Piraeus (Athens), Greece - Overcrowded, overpopulated, not worth the time and money. As I heard from others prior to the trip, it's nicknamed the "A-Crap-olis"
Santorini, Greece - Just gorgeous and clean. No one hustles you to buy anything, and the greeks are friendly!
Jewel of the Seas Jewel of the Seas - So there is a beverage package on board for $75 for 12 drinks which is a pretty awesome deal. Too bad no one mentioned it until the 2nd to last day. But if you like to drink, but don't want to spend money on the expensive beverage package, the $75 deal is a nice alternative.
