The Jewel is definitely just that!!!! A JEWEL. We loved this ship and had a marvelous cruise. Met some terrific staff from bar service to My Time Dining service. The Diamond Lounge is a great place for spending a couple hours meeting new friends and relaxing. Aline, the liaison in the DL, is a tremendous asset to RCI and the Jewel, as is Mark who is a great server. We also fell in love with Prime in the Centrum Lounge...she is so charming and seems to love her job. The best entertainment we have seen in many years was Travis DeLoyt (Elvis Impersonator). What a fantastic show and Travis is one of the most warm and friendly people we have ever met. Royal needs him on their ships. TERRIFIC!!! We enjoyed our first try at My Time Dining and are so happy we finally did. Much more pleasant as everyone there seemed more satisfied than we have experienced in the main Dining Room on our past few cruises. We once again were wowed when we had dinner at one of the specialty restaurants...always a wonderful experience. Our stateroom, on deck 9, was a very nice spacious balcony room. Love the location of the upper decks!!! We didn't do shore excursions on this cruise, but nothing could have beat spending 2 hours in Senor Frogs; meeting so many awesome people and having a blast! We have visited Nassau many times in the past so have seen all they have to offer. Nothing better than Senor Frogs for great fun. All in all....this cruise, as usual, exceeded our expectations as has every Royal cruise we have taken over the past 6 years. Prior to that I cruised Royal for many years and will never change. We are definitely "Loyal to Royal"!!!! thank you Royal Caribbean, for another tremendous vacation. Next one up, Brilliance of the Seas in April. Can't wait!!! Read Less

Chose this cruise because of the unique itinerary. Older ship showing her age in some areas, but still quite lovely overall. We were thrilled to have a Canadian captain:) We had a wonderful large balcony right near the atrium, however the noise from the band each night was terribly loud. They had to close the fire doors to try and drown out some of the noise. Seemed to be short staffed in the dining room. Food was pretty good though - and had some amazing meals and desserts. As mentioned, the balcony was a real treat with two loungers and lots of room. Our room steward was very good. Cabin had lots of storage and was a good size. Shows were pretty good, however a little disappointed that there wasn’t more activities or music during the day. We have taken 2 cruise on older Royal ships and we prefer the newer ships with more “bells & whistles”. Read Less

About 5 years since last RC cruise, been on Princess in the interim. Last RC cruise was also on Jewel (prior to latest refurb). Ship in nice condition, good itinerary, great weather, fun to watch Super Bowl. RC has changed and not for the better. Staff numbers reduced, they work hard and have good attitudes but you can see they are stretched. Menus (buffet and dining room) are reduced and repetitive with mediocre food. In dining they are pushing you toward their upsell menu items (at 30 bucks it's like they are not giving you any credit for the base meal) or heading to a specialty restaurant. Daily activities are also cut back compared to the "good old days". Even the Filipino cover band had a head count reduction (no drummer). In summary, a good cruise experience but not up to what we've had with Princess recently, IMHO RC comes up short in the value department currently. Read Less
