Itinerary

Meet the tour leader at Malta International Airport for check-in on your early flight to Amsterdam. Upon your arrival in Amsterdam, you will be transferred to the cruise port for check-in formalities, to board the Jewel of the Seas of Royal Caribbean. The ship will set sail at 1700hrs.

Discover countless ways to spend your days between ports, like fuelling friendly competition in a round of mini golf and taking adventure to new heights on the Rock Climbing Wall. If you’re after laid back lounging, catch a movie on the poolside screen or check into Vitality® at Sea Spa and Fitness Center.

Whether it’s a game of one-on-one or an all-out tournament to fuel your competitive fire, the Sports Court is just the spot for basketball and volleyball action. Slip away to this adults-only indoor and outdoor retreat. The Solarium is your slice of paradise, with soothing whirlpools, warm sunshine and a refreshing water mist. Every kid is entertained with games, events, age-appropriate activities and more at the award-winning youth program.

Situated at the head of Eyjafjordur, Iceland’s longest fjord, the first thing you’ll notice is the backdrop of dramatic snow-covered mountains. Take a stroll through the Old Town and admire the 19th-century turf houses. Sample some authentic Icelandic cuisine, or warm up in the steaming Akureyri Thermal Pool. Around the corner, you’ll find Akureyri’s basalt church, Akureyrarkirkja, with its striking, futuristic facade. Iceland cruises give you access to stroll through Lystigardurinn, the northernmost botanical garden in the world, and breathe in the fresh air and the scent of wild arctic flowers.

Founded in 1786, Reykjavik is the beating heart of Iceland. The church Hallgrimskirkja dominates the skyline - hop on the elevator to rise 75 meters into the spire, where you’ll enjoy panoramic views. In the surprisingly understated interior, you’ll find the vast 5,275-pipe organ, upon which an organist performs near-daily concerts. Built on a lava field and heated with geothermal energy, the famous Blue Lagoon is an easy 45-minute drive from Reykjavik. Pamper yourself with mud masks and massages while in the hot water.

Dining onboard is not just about food. Think ambience, variety and the flexibility to decide when and what you savour. From confectionery delights to California rolls, finger foods to a five-course gourmet meal, a Royal Caribbean cruise is a journey of culinary discovery. The innovative chefs, each trained and certified, will take your palate global with a line-up of complimentary and speciality options.

A thriving, fast-growing metropolitan centre that’s full of surprises. The city played a key role in the 19th century’s Industrial Revolution, when it was the world’s biggest linen producer. It also had a reputation for ship-building - the Titanic was built here. Travel back in time to the Titanic Quarter. Titanic Belfast is a must-see - it was named the world’s leading tourist attraction in 2016. Step aboard Titanic’s little sister, the SS Nomadic, or the HMS Caroline. Finish your visit at McHugh’s pub, located in one of Belfast’s oldest buildings. You may also spend a day exploring locations just outside the city, like Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.

The oldest city in Ireland, Waterford is home to depths of history and nature waiting to be explored. Explore the historic Viking Triangle, Waterford’s heritage and cultural quarter. Climb Reginald’s Tower, a 12th-century circular fortress erected by the Anglo-Normans. Shop for Waterford Crystal in its place of origin - stop into a local artisan’s shop and see how it’s made. Walk among rhododendrons and camellias in Mount Congreve Gardens. Or hike the Copper Coast, a UNESCO Global Geopark, where steep cliffs formed by ancient volcanic activity overlook windswept waters.

The real capital of Ireland - that’s what the locals call Cork. In the city centre, situated on an island in the River Lee, you’ll find one of Ireland’s best foodie scenes. Check out the prison-turned-museum Cork City Gaol, visit Blarney Castle and kiss its eponymous stone, and sample local culinary specialities in the English Market. Cork is just a 25-minute drive from Cobh, Ireland’s only dedicated cruise terminal and the final port of call for the Titanic before it set sail for the United States.

Recently revitalized and loaded with onboard attractions, Jewel of the Seas® offers countless ways to spend your days between ports. Enjoy your last day aboard. Don’t miss out to shop for variety name-branded items and some last-minute duty-free shopping. You will be instructed to leave your luggage outside your stateroom by midnight, as bags will be transported ashore by the ship’s personnel early next morning.

Enjoy your last breakfast on board, as your scenic holiday comes to an end. A private coach will take you to Amsterdam airport for check in on Air Malta flight.
