Hello Looking for any reviews recent reviews of RC Jewel of the Sea or Norwegian's Star and if anyone has sailed Mediterranean- East Itinerary. Also people's preference in booking a cruise on either RCL or NCL directly with the cruise line online or a TA or some other way of booking. So some background. I have been on 3 Carnival cruises (Triumph twice and Destiny once), I have also sailed on my DCL Dream once my most recent cruise. My 2 older kids have been on one Carnival cruise when they were little 8 and 2.5 and then all 3 have been on the Disney cruise. Of Course their (and mine truthfully) preference is Disney; though I did loved every Carnival Cruise that I have been on. We will be headed to Europe summer of 2019 to visit my Grandmother so we will be doing 1 week in London/Paris and then I planned to surprise them with a Cruise to the Mediterranean- East. They really wanted to cruise on a Disney ship but couldn't find an Itinerary for next year that worked for me and my work schedule. So I'm planning for next year I am leaning towards RC Jewel of the Sea mostly due to Itinerary and pricing. Also have wanted to try RCL for a long time and would like to see if it would work for us a DCL alternative so we can cruise more. I have booked all of my previous cruises (except my first cruise which was my honeymoon and that was booked through a TA at Liberty travel) with my favorite TA who specializes in cruises but we have never received anything special by booking through her (no OBC or discounts or anything). She used to be a TA with one agency she is now with Dreams. I'm just trying to figure out what is the best way to book a cruise for RCL or NCL. Thanks in advance for any reviews and guidance.
