Royal Caribbean International

Jewel of the Seas

Royal Caribbean International

Set sail on the glorious Jewel of the Seas, one of Royal Caribbean International's well-equipped mid sized ships.

This is one of Royal Caribbean’s Radiance Class ships and was given her name to reflect the amount of light that gives this ship its unique character with glass lifts and a nine deck atrium. Built in 2004 it was refitted in 2013 to ensure that the high standards passengers can expect from Royal Caribbean ships are also found here.

Destinations and Itineraries

This ship’s home is San Juan in Puerto Rico and UK passengers can book a nine-day holiday with seven nights on board. The cruise ship itinerary only varies slightly and when passengers land at San Juan they board the ship and head to San Croix in the US Virgin Islands.

Excursions are organised from here to the Carambola Golf Club, awarded a gold medal for being one of the finest golf courses in the world, with spring fed water hazards. Ruined sugar mills, exotic flora and fauna are all part of the experience. The next two ports of call are both in the Leeward Islands. The first, St Maarten, is the setting for a clash of cultures as the French and Dutch have both laid claim to this island paradise. Antigua is the next island, where passengers can explore its picture postcard beaches or Nelson’s Dockyard.

St Lucia is the next port of call and the next day the Jewel of the Seas arrives in Barbados at Bridgetown, where the island's best beaches are found. Zip wire adventures or submarine explorations represent the highs and lows of this stop, which is followed by a day at sea as the Jewel heads home to San Juan. Alternative itineraries take in the legendary island of St Kitts in the Leeward Islands or Aruba and Curacao in the Dutch Antilles.

You’ll never be short of exciting things to do on the Jewel of the Seas. Unspoilt beaches and historic colonial towns are all explored on this floating fun factory’s tour of island paradises.

On Board

On Board

The leisure options on board can rival those of any ship afloat. There are three pools, one with a sliding glass roof and one with a waterslide. There is an expansive gym, which occupies two decks, and leisure activities include a climbing wall, a miniature golf course, golf simulator and putting green. Another unique feature on this class of ship is the self-levelling pool tables in the Colony Club. For the more active, there is also a basketball court and jogging track, and for those who wish to kick back and relax, there is plenty of deck space to top up the suntan. After dinner entertainment is provided in the Coral theatre, which can seat more than 900 passengers at a time with Broadway-style spectaculars. The smaller Safari Club offers cabaret style entertainment and the Jewel boasts a wealth of theme bars to suit your mood – there’s even a champagne bar. The ship has a cinema, library and a casino, and for those who can’t escape the demands of the office while on holiday, there is a business and conference centre with internet connections.
