This was our first cruise on RCI Jewel of the seas. We have
cruised other lines in the past .This one rang the bell. The ship
was great lots of sea views. very good service by all staff and
very friendly , the food was also very good definitely no
complaints at all. There was lots of entertainment throughout the
ship. The stage shows and acts were good to okay (not into adult
comedy).The Islands were the best for us . We are certainly looking
at going back again. Everything about this cruise just fell into
place. We love the Solarium our favourite place on the ship to just
relax., with Champagne bar next .We also met some other cruisers,
who we will keep in touch . For perhaps another cruise together in
planning stage. We looked for a change, we certainly found one . So
far the JEWEL of SEAS shines the brightest.
We have done 27 cruises and 20 with Royal Caribbean. This is our
4th cruise on a ship in it's inaugural year. We've done the
Freedom, the Oasis, the Allure, and now the Quantum,all in their
first year. Our cruise on the Quantum we expected for there to be
some things that will have to be worked out as time progresses.
Yes, there are some things that needed to be adjusted with the
Dynamic Dining, and the long lines for activities and
entertainment. We expected that so the cruise for us was great. I
believe some people just like to complain. We decided to, instead
of complaining about everything (as most people did) to just roll
with it and enjoy our cruise.
New ships have new ship issues. Because we had our attitude in
check before we got on board, the food was good, the shows were
good especially Starwater. I did the rip cord, what an adventure
and the Eye was just awesome. The Diamond lounge and the Concierge
club were both packed every night but that was OK too because of
our Diamond Plus status RCI gave us 33
free drinks each for the 11 day cruise which could be redeemed at
any bar on the ship,not too shabby! We didn't get on-board to
criticize we got on board to enjoy and to have fun. When you're
paying that kind of money you have to find enjoyment most things.
I could go on and on about how much my wife and I enjoyed this
ship but I will end my review by just saying that we had an
excellent time and we look forward to booking the Anthem and having
ourselves a ball!
