  1. Trying RC for the first time. We would never have tried a ship with more than 1000 pax but Jewel using a home port less than an hours drive away coupled with severely reduced capacity were worth the risk. Glad we did as it has changed our perception of larger ships particularly with how RC operates. Went on again two months later with 4 times the capacity and still enjoyed everything.
  2. You're right re speculation and I am sitting on the fence and may just do what you suggest. I haven't checked the history to see if it has ever been extended since being introduced.
  3. Not sure if this has been raised before. Will this be extended beyond Oct 31 ?
  4. Oops pressed wrong key. Masks were required in some outside areas but most walked around without one.
  5. I have only been on Jewel. On my first in July were was no seating at bars except at the casino for some reason. Even the concierge lounge had no seating at the bar and some other seating areas too. However, on my second this month, seating at all bars were allowed and all the seating in the concierge lounge. The mask policy was a little confusing. No masks while seated except for the pool bar ! One customer was reminded about this while sitting there. Others were standing ordering drinks to take away with masks on. The outside areas were ma
  6. On last day of our cruise. No sign of any fires or smoke.
  7. After months of emails about the lack of Tia Maria & Martini Bianco I received a phone call our cabin when we had just boarded to let me me know they had the items on board. I really was surprised as I had no response to the emails. We are still on the cruise enjoying everything, despite the passenger count being more than treble our July trip. Royal have also made sure the drink items are available in the lounge, MDR & specialty restaurants. I am soooohappy !!!
  8. Sorry, my remarks were what used to happen.
  9. GS's under the solarium area are better than the main pool area on Jewel.
  10. It depends on the sail voyage. Drink packages from the USA exclude grat. and added when ordering drinks. From Europe packages incl grat. This often accounts for the difference in the package price between sailings
  11. For me, a first time RC cruiser, I loved our suite on Jewel, one of the smaller ones. The balcony was impressive, could lie on two loungers side by side, with my wife The concierge lounge was one of the most sociable areas in these Covid times. Free drinks/snacks early in the evening. Other lounges a bit too big. Seating at bars were not allowed except for the casino for some reason. If your big breakfast fans there was a special area in Chopps. Light fare in the lounge. Well worth it to us hence another booking in a month.
  12. Class ? Royal seemed to have latched on to the class system of other countries. Inside, ocean,balconies, suites, star class etc with various benefits. Covid has added to this as well
  13. You will have access. They had to limit access because of Covid restrictions. to exclude others previously entitled. Even in the concierge lounge there is no bar seating and some other areas cordoned off. Not much seating even for suite guests
