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

Sit back, kick off your shoes and put your feet up during your ‘at sea’ days, where you can chill in the bar, lounge by the pool or enjoy a relaxing beauty treatment in the spa. For simple pleasures, why not try a game of table tennis? Or if you’re feeling energetic, now’s the chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, from spectacular, West-End-style entertainment to adrenalin-charged sports.

A relaxing day spent crossing the Arctic Circle. The top of our planet features the otherworldly beauty of glaciers, vivid skies and unique wildlife, like the porpoises that race ships through these arctic waters. And nothing quite compares to relaxing on deck as you sip hot cappuccino and experience the phenomenal night skies.

Norway’s gateway to the Arctic, is surrounded by deep blue fjords and snow-capped mountain peaks. Explore this lively city, linked to the mainland by a gracefully arched bridge. Visit the fascinating Polar Museum or the arctic aquarium Polaria. Be blown away by panoramic views on a cable car ride up to Storstein Mountain, or hike up one of the trails that run through the Lyngen Alps. Stop into a cafe and refuel with carrot and cardamom marmalade on toast.

Situated above the Arctic Circle, Honningsvag is surrounded by fjords and waterfalls, offering views across the sea to the Svalbard Islands and the North Pole. First settled more than 10 thousand years ago, today you’ll find a modern downtown area around the harbour. Shops sell local crafts, including traditional Sami jewellery, as well as sleek Scandinavian home decor. Jump onboard a Norwegian fjords cruise and watch the indigenous Sami people herd reindeer through the area, and explore the history of the area at the Nordkappmuseet.

Onboard, dining is about more than just 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 small but lively city with a unique modern feel. A rebuilding effort following a major fire in 1904 gave the city its distinctive Art Nouveau - or “Jugendstil” - architectural style, defined its ornate details, asymmetrical facades and curving forms meant to resemble plants, animals and flowers. From the city park, walk up the 418 steps to the city’s peak, Aksla - you’ll be rewarded with a gorgeous panoramic view on the city, the islands and the rugged Sunnmorsalpane mountain range.

Recently revitalized and loaded with onboard attractions, Jewel of the Seas® offers countless ways to spend your days between ports. Catch a dive-in movie on the poolside screen. Scale the Rock-Climbing Wall. Go all-in at Casino Royal. Savour dry-aged steaks at Chops Grille and embark on a varietal adventure at Vintages.

Named after its founding king, is the lively capital of Southern Norway. Stroll through the old town of Posebyen, known for its neat grid design with wooden white and pastel-coloured houses. Explore the area around the quayside and fish market, and relax in an outdoor cafe. Visit the photogenic Christiansholm Fortress, on the seaside promenade in the city centre. Built between 1662 and 1672 by Fredrik III to keep watch over the strategic Skagerrak Straits, which were often assailed by pirates.

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.
