  1. Do any of these have a shuttle from the airport?
  2. I just joined the Roll Call for my upcoming cruise, and it is so hard to follow? The posts are not in chronological order. Is there a way to choose to see them that way?
  3. I sailed Jewel December 1st, and we had the SetSail passes with muster stations on them, but got our SeaPass cards at check in just as we always have.
  4. Yep, those were the ones on our December Jewel cruise. Same old, same old...
  5. We are doing a transatlantic (our first) on Brilliance the first part of November. (Barcelona to Tampa) What was your weather like? I have no idea what to expect!
  6. You will enjoy it, I'm sure! I have Compasses and any other info you may need - just ask!
  7. I'll do a complete review later, but wanted to share a condensed version of our Dec. 1-8 Southern Caribbean cruise out of San Juan on Jewel of the Seas. This was the 7th cruise (2 Celebrity, 2 NCL, 2 RCI) for my husband and I. We traveled with our son and his 3 boys (7, 11, and 15) - this was their first cruise experience. Only one sea day on this cruise, so it was very port intensive. The crew of the Jewel was one of the best I've encountered. They went above and beyond to meet any needs or requests we had, and always with a smile. Our waitstaff in the MDR couldn't have been better. One day at lunch in the Windjammer, when the ice cream machines were dispensing strawberry and chocolate soft serve, my 7-year-old grandson asked one of the crew if they had any vanilla ice cream. He asked us to point out our table, and before long he delivered a bowl of hand-scooped vanilla ice cream! The food was also the best I've had on RCI. Service in the MDR was excellent, and everything was pretty consistent. The beef dishes were especially outstanding. One of my grandsons had the "Fish of the Day" option every evening, and it was varied and prepared well each time. The Radiance class ships are a good size for a first cruise, in my opinion. Just big enough, but not overwhelming. After a day or 2, the boys were able to navigate everything themselves. The entertainment on this cruise left a lot to be desired. The first night at the welcome aboard show, a comedian (Steve White) was featured. He was hysterical, and we laughed until we cried. Other than than, not a lot was offered. The Royal Caribbean singers/dancers/orchestra did 3 production shows - same old ones. The farewell show featured another comedian, who was literally the worst comedian I had ever heard. Not the least bit funny. So no variety at all - no musical groups, tribute bands, magicians, jugglers, etc. All in all, it was a wonderful cruise. San Juan airport is a nightmare, but it's a necessary evil to do a Southern Caribbean cruise in 7 days
  8. Well, Avis gave all their cars away despite our reservation, so be sure to have a plan B in place....
  9. We had a car reserved through the Avis location at Havensight for our cruise last week, got there, and were told "no more cars available." Have a plan B in place - we wasted a lot of time and money figuring out our next move.
  10. Every time I've been to Barbados, there have been shuttle buses running from the ship to the terminal.
  11. Thanks - I've always brought my own, but haven't sailed this class for awhile and wanted to make sure.
  12. Do the Radiance class ships provide any toiletries in the standard inside/outside cabins?
  13. Which car rental companies are located right near Havensight Dock? I'm finding Budget, but not reading very good reviews on it. Any others? There are 6 of us on this trip, and it will be less expensive to rent a car than to pay for taxis for all of us!
