  1. Having booked Jewel out of Cypus for September, the invoice arrived today. It does say the flights are provisional, but it's showing Manchester departure at 7am landing at Larnaca at 4pm. I was surprised to see Larnaca rather than Paphos, but there will be very little difference in the transfer time. What did surprise me was the arrival time being 2 hours later than I would have expected even allowing for the time difference. It makes me wonder if two flights are involved or that we may land somewhere to pick up extra passengers. I usually book cruise only, so am not familiar with fly cruis
  2. Got the email this morning detailing 7 night sailings on Jewel from Cyprus beginning in July. Adult guests required to have two covid vaccinations and children need a negative covid test before boarding . Little information on itinerary only that stops in Mykonos and Athens. So who's going to book?
  3. Wife and I (both 50) are considering a Caribbean cruise on the Jewel of the Seas in December. I know the ship hasn't been refurbished in a while, but wondering what people think of the ship in general. Is there a place for adults only (solarium) on this ship? I like the smaller size (seems to be similar passenger count to the Celebrity Solstice). Any pointers or feedback (and yes, I have read some of the CC reviews)? Much appreciated...
  4. It appears that Jewel is the only ship in its Class that has staterooms 1140-1162 on Deck 11. Has anyone stayed in one of these staterooms? Is the area quiet? Looks like they carved out an area of the Spa, but from the deck plans don't see any passageway to get to them.
  5. We are sailing on Jewel next March. It's been a while since we've sailed RC, and they've updated their website. I can't seem to find where we select a seating time - can anyone point me in the right direction?
  6. I've been on Jewel of the Seas a few times, but not since the renovation earlier this year. I see several new "Superior Ocean View Staterooms with Balcony" cabins added on deck 11 1140 through 1162. These seem to be adjacent to the spa and are the only cabins on deck 11. Has anyone been in these cabins yet? I'm looking for any feedback before booking those rooms.
  7. I got an update from my TA regarding cancellation of our cruise scheduled for July 25th, 2021 from Stockholm. Here is the text of RCCL message. "Dear Royal Guest, The past year has been challenging, but we're getting ready for our Royal Comeback. Over the last 12 months, we've worked around the clock preparing for our return. We've spent countless hours hyper-focused on developing new protocols and procedures, scheduling new itineraries, and adjusting and evolving our plans. While we've been getting ready, there is still significant uncertainty surrounding re

  9. I have this 3 paragraph opener with all my pre-planning drafted on my work computer, but I felt like starting this now so I will post that at the end of the blog. This will be a picture heavy report and include a lot of details. I want to preface this by saying I don’t care if you reply and repost pictures...it doesn’t bother me. I’m just happy to see people reading along. I also want to say that this is my opinions and the Greek Isles seen through my eyes. Sorry if you don’t agree with something I say, just be kind about it [emoji6] No hateful comments will be responded to. This
  10. Anyone know the the Jewel is due for a refurb?
  11. Both are open on the sailing I’m looking at so any advice between the two would be appreciated. Thank you
  12. Can the divider panel/wall between two balconies be opened?
  13. Someone on my roll call posted that Royal just sold Jewel of the Seas. Can’t confirm it anywhere? Anyone hear anything? We are on the TA in March 2021 (to be canceled) and on the TA April 2022. If true, I would stitch 2022 TA
  14. ***Hi everyone! First, if you haven’t yet read Rowse’s wonderful report do go enjoy that! It will take me several days to get my full blog and photos up. I also did a lot of video this time and will be posting some vlog links once I have them edited*** https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2699122-jewel-of-the-seas-review-long-september-15-24-2019-with-travel-prepost-cruise/page/5/ Wow. Incredible. Beautiful. These are the words we used when describing last years visit to the Greek isles. Would this year live up to the same standard and unmeasurable experience? This was my 7th cruise...
  15. Does anyone know what the Jewel is doing the last week of October 2021? She goes to Canada on the 24th from Boston and the next date she appears to be scheduled in December 4th out of Miami. I don't see a repositioning cruise for her. What's up?
  16. We had 3 cruises on the Jewel scheduled for October 2021 that were cancelled. Has anyone received refunds? They owe us $1100.00. Wouldn't let us move deposits. So far have received $10.18 & $441.38. Makes no sense. Any ideas?
  17. I had a cruise that was cancelled due to Covid. I was given an opportunity to lift and shift it . That was very fair. This meant all the cash off money I received on my previous cruise would be moved to the new cruise also reducing the cost to very little . I made sure I selected a cruise that met all The requirements. I selected a 10/21 cruise on the jewel In Europe. Low and behold this week I received a letter The jewel cruise ship has now been moved for a select few months including mine and my cruise cancelled. All the letter said Is I can rebook and get a $100 credit or cancel and
  18. Asking experienced cruisers for your guidance. We just don't know enough about the midship hump. In the reshuffling of ships, we were moved from category 1B room (Brilliance) in the middle of the Hump on Deck 9, to another 1B room (Jewel) front of the ship. Is this difference worth bringing to their attention? Thanks in advance, Eddie
  19. I’ve sailed on all the Radiance class ships several times but always avoid balconies on the 7th floor because of the overhang. However, the overhang doesn’t extend to the hump so I booked one on Jewel. I was looking at the deck plans and noticed that it indicates that these cabins are partially obstructed. It’s only on Jewel and not on the other radiance class ships. Anyone know what the obstruction is?
  20. Just received an email from RC informing us that our February 14, 2021 sailing has been cancelled due to the fact that Liberty would be docking at the Galveston pier. Here we go again...trying to rebook again 😏
  21. So we just returned from the March 9, 2020 sailing of Jewel of the Seas. It was supposed to do Abu Dhabi, Oman, and Yas Island and later Oman was dropped and an extra day was added to Abu Dhabi, but honestly that doesn't matter as everything changed due to the coronavirus. I thought I would give you all a review to read as it looks like we will all be quarantined for the next two weeks. Who were are: my hubby and myself late 30s our twins who are 7, would have turned 8 right after we returned home, but that will come later. We are diamond and so are our kids who always vacation
  22. I have been looking for reviews and can't find them. Has anyone been in one of the extended balcony rooms on deck 7 on Jewel of the Seas? I found a video online showing that the last couple feet of the balcony has just a short rail divider between rooms. Any insight from anyone who has been in one of these rooms? I have a friend contemplating switching to an ocean view guarantee on our British Isles cruise in June 2021, it's a huge savings for their family...just wanted to check out the different rooms that they might end up in, and if it would be worth the savings. Here is the video t
  23. Will Jewel make Cruises in nothern Europe, she is under Way to Southampton now....
  24. Allure right now shows its position s/w of Ireland (Cork) at 8 kn speed on marinetraffic with destination from Southampton to Southampton. Jewel anchors near Piraeus, Greece and marinetraffic shows her new destination as US Anchorage (anchoring US) Anybody has a clue?
