Jewel of the Seas at Sea

Days 2, 3, 6, 9, and 11

Yahoo!  It is almost time for our next vacation.  Once again, we have chosen a cruise with Royal Caribbean.  When planning a cruise vacation, we know that the trip depends more on two factors than any other – including ports of call.  The first factor is the ship’s record of service.  The second is the ship herself. This year we will be on the 11 Night Ultimate Caribbean & Panama Cruise Sailing On Jewel Of The Seas.

Here are some clips from how Royal Caribbean describes their own ship.  The pictures were found on the web while investigating our upcoming cruise.
