Juno was assigned to the 11th Cruiser Squadron operating from Ireland.
The following year she served in the cruiser squadron under the command of Captain Henry Peter Routh. In May 1902 she was taken into Portsmouth for a refit, and the following month Captain David Beatty was appointed in command. She took part in the fleet review held at Spithead on 16 August 1902 for the coronation of King Edward VII, and visited Souda Bay, Crete with other ships of the Channel squadron the following month. She was posted to the Mediterranean Fleet later that year.
Juno was sold for scrap in 1920.
