Jewel of the Seas Receives a $30m Makeover to be Unveiled in April 2016

Royal Caribbean’s Jewel of the Seas will receive a complete makeover from bow-to-stern, unveiling a fresh and thoroughly contemporary style for the summer 2016 Mediterranean sailings.

Sparkling with ocean-facing glass elevators and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the ship, Jewel’s superior combination of shipboard experience, convenience and value will make it a great option for family travel in Europe next summer.

With new staterooms, new restaurants, technology upgrades and exciting entertainment, Jewel will be the most contemporary ship to sail from Rome this summer.  Additions include a two-bedroom family suite and 24 new outside and balcony accommodations that showcase the picturesque coastlines of the Eastern Mediterranean. Giovanni’s Table, Vintages and Izumi, some of Royal Caribbean’s most popular dining venues, will join the diverse menu of dining options. Chops Grille, the spa and retail areas will also be refreshed with a new modern design and a new poolside movie screen will be added. Most exciting for selfie-snapping, hyper-connected travellers is the addition of VOOM, the fastest Internet at sea, throughout the ship.

The seven-, eight- and nine-night itineraries will showcase the best destinations of Italy, Greece and Turkey. She will visit popular ports of call such as Athens and Mykonos in Greece as well as a bucket-list favourite, Santorini in Greece.

Jewel of the Seas, which is part of Royal Caribbean’s Radiance class of ships, will deliver the ultimate collection of Mediterranean experiences from historical European cities to idyllic island towns and, of course, the active adventures and innovations for which Royal Caribbean is known.

“When the rejuvenated Jewel of the Seas arrives to Rome in April 2016, she will boast a perfect blend of design, features, services and technology that modern world travellers expect, while immersing them in some of the most sought-after-cities in the Mediterranean,” said Michael Bayley, President and Chief Executive, Royal Caribbean International.
