Having made her debut in 2004, the Jewel of the Seas may be somewhat “old” by Royal Caribbean standards. After all, it seems like they’re cranking out another big ship every year! But, while the Jewel of the Seas may be more seasoned than her other fleet mates, some would argue that’s she’s not been out-classed. Since the day she first set sail, passengers have been raving about what a fun boat she is, as well as what a beautiful one she is.
In fact, as the travel community tallies up reviews from passengers over the previous year, one thing becomes eminently clear. The Jewel of the Seas remains one of the finest cruise ships operating in the world today. This is why we thought it would be fun to take a quick tour of her, showing you all the great stuff about her that makes people love her so. Sure, she might not have the “North Star” feature that’s become so popular on the Oasis-class ships, but who cares? There’s plenty of entertainment elsewhere to be had.
So, if you’ve cruised on the Jewel of the Seas before or simply want to see what she’s all about, come take this tour! By the end you might be booking passage on her as so many travelers have before you.
1. That’s A Big Ship!
Royal Caribbean is known for its massive, tricked-out ships, and the Jewel of the Seas (aptly named) proves no exception to the rule.
2. Get Started
Up on deck, the main pool area is a real standout, with plenty of aquatic fun to be had and a nearby bar for libations.
3. Stepping Back
The main pool isn’t the only pool, though, as there’s also the Solarium, which offers a more adult experience.
4. An Oasis
You’ll note that the relaxing interior of the Solarium pool offers a decidedly charming Thai feel.
