Default Brilliance class our favorite

We have been on the Jewel 3 times when it was sailing out of Tampa. Found to be one of the nicest in the fleet, class-wise. Have to wonder why RCCL has not updated it like it has all the other ships in her class. It's not even scheduled for this.

I thought RCCL had a policy of refurbishing all ships every 5 years. When was she last done?

I could have sworn I read somewhere that Jewel was going into dry dock sometime soon.

However she looks great for a 10 year old ship. Shiny, bright and clean....

TM you may be right....I made Diamond + last month mid cruise however next cruise is the 1st real cruise as a Diamond +.

The Wall Mart cruise was not a good one.

Although I think NCL is above Carnival. I'll have to give NCL a shot at another time not now.

I'm so spoiled on Royal that another cruiseline may not be the same.

As much as you enjoy Royal, you would not have a great time on another cruiseline.

I went ahead and booked the Oasis yesterday for July. There was a Boardwalk Balcony weekend sale. I'm happy with the rate.
Jetblue also dropped airfare for that week, Embassy Suites was available so booked that. Booked all my shows now just have to book excursions.

And received my Royal email "documents are now ready" today.

And also this morning Jewel dropped rates. I'm still liking that Jewel itinerary and with the low rates I may have to book Jewel for August.

Also if any solo is looking for a solo cabin on Quantum Dec. 1st there may be one available as I cancelled that cruise. The solo cabins on Quantum go very fast and are hard to come by so my Quantum cabin may or may not be in the "cabin available pool".

Shame to hear that you have cancelled your Quantum cruise. Was looking forward to one of your brilliant reviews and pictures.
Hope you get to do Queen Quantum before she goes to China or do Anthem when she comes over instead.

CQ, I congratulate you on your booking.


You can't beat a cruise on the Oasis.

Sauspud....As Queen Quantum sailings get closer I'll look into it. She is here for about 5 months. The good thing is I would not need airfare so I can book, pack and go. Also looking forward for Lovable Liberty to be here next Spring and then Awesome Anthem!

Donna, Thank you...I think I did well too... It's funny how the rates change from day to day and many times a few times a day. It's getting to be very time consuming looking around for rates and price drops.


TM! Thanks! No you can't beat the Oasis class!

It's always good looking around for cruise rates! Right now looking around for Vegas rates.

Jewel may be out Vegas may be in!
