  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hi anyone stay in cabin 1054 on jewel? Thanks
  6. ***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...
  7. 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?
  8. 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 😏
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Will Jewel make Cruises in nothern Europe, she is under Way to Southampton now....
  12. 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
  13. 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?
  14. I am a bit late in posting this as we have been back a week, but here goes---just a short review of some key areas (I am happy to try to answer questions if wanted): Diamond Perks: This was our fifth TA on RCI as Diamonds. We are used to lounges being too full to get seats without waiting a line or some other nonesense--even with overflow lounges open. It's understandable and we do not complain about it---just happily use our 3 coupons elsewhere and enjoy our cruise. That and allowing Diamonds to get coffee since the lounge machine can't keep up are all we expect on cruises with very h
  15. I just noticed that the Jewel TA from Galveston to Barcelona for March 2021 has disappeared. Anyone have an idea what has happened with it? We had/have a GS booked and were/are really looking forward to it.
  16. Just wondering if anyone is currently on the Jewel (or know of anyone on the ship). It set sail on March 9 from Dubai. My parents are supposed to be on it right now but I haven't heard from them (they are usually responsive and they promised to text me when they get on the ship). I read on a different forum and some media outlets that Dubai closed its ports to all cruise ships. But i also read from another source that the ports are open...and the Dubai/Oman 7 day itinerary just changed a bit (not stopping in Oman). But I'm not sure how reliable those sources are. I tried calling R
  17. Hi all We have booked very late for the 23 March departure of Jewel of the Seas from Dubai/Athens. We have been struggling trying to work our way through the pages and pages of forum comments to find information on people offering and requesting for others to join them on independant tours at ports. If enough people are interested, I could put together a spreadsheet that can be updated on a regular basis (some people are still cancelling cruises as I write this). We are particularly eager to join others in Petra but are also interested in other activities. Looki
  18. Would like to know if Jewel of the Seas offers Pickleball Open Play as a regular sports activity. We have sailed on some RCI ships that have portable pickleball nets, balls, paddles and have it as morning sports activity from 9 to 11 AM every day. We are booked on JOS for a repositioning cruise in March with 6 sea days and it would be great if they did. If you have been on Jewel of Seas lately... does JOS offer Pickleball? Thanks!
  19. Booked our Baltic Cruise for May. What was your favorite thing to do in Helsinki, Stockholm, Talinn, St Petersburg, Copenhagen. Who has been on the Jewel recently......wish it was a newer ship.
  20. Nine days ago we thought we'd be boarding Quantum in Singapore today. The Coronavirus outbreak changed all that! On Friday 7th with the situation worsening in Singapore we decided to call our TA to see if we could cancel. After going backwards and forwards for a bit they agreed that we could get a full refund for the whole package (cruise, flights and 3 night hotel stay) so we booked this instead. Just checked our credit card and the money has been refunded today. RCL eventually cancelled this cruise on Tuesday 11th when we would have been on a flight to Singapore so something worked out for u
  21. On the Jewel just had a late change of itinerary we are not docking in Oman tomorrow. The next 2 stops were scheduled to be Khasab and Muscat and both are cancelled. We were told its because of health concerns due to the close proximity of Oman to Iran. Its a sea day tomorrow now while we wait for an update in the morning.
  22. March 23, 2020 sailing. Looked at cruise planner today and it looks like the itinerary has changed. Cruise docs do not show a change. The main issue is that it now terminates in Athens instead of Rome. A big difference considering the flight from Rome... When do they send out the official we have changed the cruise notice so that we can change our flights? I do not want to change the flight without being notified. Essentially they added an overnight in Dubai, removed Oman stops, added a couple of sea days, Limassol Cyprus, a stop at Crete /Chania (Souda)
  23. Leaves Barcelona 19th April bound for Portofino, Florence Rome and Naples Italy. CDC advice is only travel to Italy if necessary...Italy in general not specifically the locked down areas mentioned by WHO. Anyone due to sail that cruise , anyone having concerns? Seems like RC adopting a “wait and see” attitude.
  24. No Italian ports on these sailings now - there were 4. Villefranche stays and new ports are a mixture of Malaga, Alicante, Marseille, Palma de Mallorca and Valencia; 1 sea day. Good to see clear information from Royal 7 weeks prior to sail date.
