  1. After some cruises in the Caribbean, we decided this summer to cruise in the Mediterranean. Some years ago, we did the eastern Mediterranean on Navigator of the seas (Rome-Messine-Athenes-Kusadesi-Chania). Now was the time to try the western Mediterranean. Many posters on cruisecritic mentionned that european cruises tend to be port intensive so this time, we opted for two oceanview staterooms (on deck three) instead of balcony. I made a deposit during wave season and I guess the price we paid was very good since by july, the price was almost 100% more. On most cruises, we tend to
  2. My sister, cousin and sister in law & I (ages 44 to 50) had been planning this trip for 2 years since our last trip to Europe in 2017 – Venice and 9 day Mediterranean cruise. We left home on Sunday 6-16. We did 2.5 days in Paris. Short flight to Rome. Spent 4.5 days in Rome. Then cruise. Getting from Rome to the port was a pain. We took the train. Then got turned around walking to the staging area. Once we found the staging area...Stand in the hot sun without any shade and wait for the 1 bus to transport people to the ship area. People were starting to overheat and ge
  3. Couple of questions about this. I've already bought it, so the "is it worth it" question is pointless 😂 but I'm wondering exactly how best to use it and does everyone buy it? In other words, it seems like a fast-pass and there's nothing worse than getting a fast pass with 1000 other people! Also, when debarking in Rome after the 7 night Greek Islands trip, about what time do you think we will leave the ship (ballpark). Thanks!!
  4. For those that have been on the Jewel out of Rome: 1. How early have they been letting people board the ship? 2. How early did the Windjammer open for lunch on the first day? Thanks!

  6. Will be on the Jewel sailing 10/3/19 and wondering if we will tender at the old port or dock at the new port in Mykonos. Thanks in advance.
  7. Does anyone know what pier Jewel of the Seas docks at in Civitavecchia? I'm trying to figure out if I should rent a car from Hertz or Europcar and want the shortest distance to walk to rental agency.
  8. Hello, hoping someone can help please? We’ve booked our AI drinks package ready for our cruise later in the year and I am hoping someone can confirm if the cap on drinks is still $12 or if it is $13? I’ve see from some other posts that it is $13 on the larger (newer?) ships but can’t seem to find the info on the Jewel. I’m asking in part because I’ve seen a few posts showing recent drink menus where the cost of the premium cocktail seems to be $13 as standard, but that might be on the newer ships. Thanks in advance!
  9. I am booked on the October 21 ,2019 Italy/Greece cruise on the Jewel of the Seas. When looking on the RCCL website it appears that there are no cruise itineraries on the Jewel from the middle of September 2019 until the beginning of November 2019. Seems very strange that everyone of the cruises on the Jewel are completely sold out. Should I be worried?
  10. Deck Plans show Jewel Deck 7, Starboard side as unobstructed stateroom cabins. We are currently on Jewel, and views from ashore also show no basic obstruction. Brilliance deck plans show just about all the staterooms on Deck 7, Starboard side as obstructed. I want to book a stateroom on Brilliance, 7592, and wondering just what is the obstruction? Anybody been on board and has personal knowledge of any or what the obstruction is? I know on some Celebrity ships the obstruction might be the top of a lifeboat davit. Jewel and Brilliance are the same class ships, so jus
  11. I've read that there is usually lobster on the second formal night of a 7 night sailing, but that might just be for Caribbean sailings, I saw a travel blog for the Greek Isles itinerary that did not seem to show lobster for any of the nights. I was wondering if anyone could confirm this. We are trying to arrange specialty dining and don't want to miss a special meal in the MDR if we can help it. Thank you!
  12. We were just on Jewel bouncing around the Greek Islands. Had a terrific time. No real complaints other than I ate too much and the outside windows could have used a hose down. Anyway, a few days into the cruise a written notice was sent to cabins asking that we double check that we had our correct luggage. Said some guests were still waiting for their luggage or something to that effect. Just seems odd that anyone would be in a cabin for a couple of days and not come to realize that the luggage they were tripping over wasn't theirs. I feel for anyone who went wi
  13. Is there someplace where I can see a quick view of what kind of "bells & whistles" the Jewel of the Sea has? Specifically looking at what kind amenities to keep teenagers busy and active. I see a rock climbing wall and mini golf, but that's it. Is there a water slide? Thanks.
  14. Can someone tell me what broadway show is on the ship? Also, what activites do they have as far as entertainment. I will be going to Greece, so I realize scenery is the most important.
  15. Can anyone share the adventure ocean flyer for the Jewel oof the seas out of Rome (Greek isles) - we are on the June 16 sailing. Or at least the hours?
  16. Does the Jewel have a StTropez (topless) deck during Mediterranean cruises?
  17. Hi We've been looking at doing the Dubai to Rome cruise through the Suez Canal on Jewel of the Seas in March 2020. I've planned our itinerary before and after the cruise from Australia with a cruise date of 20th March 2020 but I've just look again and the cruise date is now 23rd March 2020. I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this date change? Not a huge deal as I haven't booked flights/accommodation or the cruise yet but am wondering if I'm going crazy. Thanks Tamara
  18. Sailed transatlantic from Miami to Rome March 29-April 12 with 3 additional days/nights in Rome. Love the Radiance class as just the right size and amenities for us 55+ folks. Cabins are average size with an outside with window our preference. Large window makes the room bright. We were on deck down from Guest Services and Centrum. Very quiet and private in spite of proximity to hustle and bustle of Centrum. Great shows, movies in cinema big hit with everyone we came into contact with. Food average fare in Windjammer and good to very good in dining room. Service there FAR surpasses Windjammer.
  19. Hi folks Have noticed this cabin is available and I managed to view a video online but I'd also be keen to hear from anyone who has stayed in the cabin or opposite number. It looks good but not sure if its very private as there seems to be a gap where you can see into your neighbours balcony? And will the location be quiet? Many thanks
  20. Pretty sure no-one was able to book a shore excursion in Denver.
