Hey everyone,

I have just one question. My mom and I will be going on the Jewel of the Seas in November and I have always wondered this with RCI ships. Are you allowed to go to the very front of the ship, just like in the movie Titanic?

I have heard on the Voyager-class ships that you can, but I didn't know if it was the same on the Radiance-class. If someone could please tell me if that is possible I would really appreciate it. I would just LOVE to go to the very front of the ship because it would be an amazing experience.

Thanks!
Samantha

Yes Samantha you can.

I try that on every ship, but its not always possible. But on the Jewel wel. Its the first ship, having some stoels to sit down, never saw that before. And Im also remembering the Titanic scene every time.
On the Brilliance I told that to our tablemates and he made his proposal on this deck.
On both ships they use the deck also as neccessary for helicopter landings.

So, have fun
Marita

Hello All~~~

I hesitate to post an alternative experience, but perhaps it might serve to ward off disappointment.

A year or so ago, we cruised on the Serenade of the Seas on two back-to-back sailings out of New York City to New England and Canada. On those two cruises, the forward area of the ship was not ever available to the passengers. Gates were closed; signs were posted. It was not at all to do with any unpleasant weather.

This past summer, we sailed on the same ship to Alaska. In direct contrast, that helicopter/observation deck was almost always available to the passengers.

Comparing the two cruises, I must say that the Alaskan trip involved many hours of sailing along the most beautiful scenery in the world---all done at very slow speed during almost perfect weather. The travelling done on the New England/Canada cruise was at 16 knots or faster, to get us from one port to another and probably an unsafe speed to have us up on the bow of the ship.

Samantha,

it's "Jewel of the Seas". I took that ship last year for a short cruise out of Hamburg. A full review of that trip with more than 175 pictures is available here.
