Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas

Every view, picture-worthy. Every moment, unforgettable.

6 Pools and Whirlpools | 100+ Spa Treatments | 859 Crew to Serve You

Pure relaxation and incredible views along the way. Jewel of the Seas, a dazzling Radiance-class ship, combines sleek swiftness, panoramic vistas, and wide-open spaces for the ultimate cruise getaway. With acres of glass throughout and elevators facing the sea, every view is picture-worthy. Bask in the tranquil Solarium pool, recharge at Vitality Spa, or reach new heights on our signature rock-climbing wall. When the sun goes down, the night heats up with Broadway-style shows, Casino Royale, plus 16 bars and lounges. It's the amazing vacation you've been searching for.

In April 2016, Jewel of the Seas completed a bow-to-stern renovation that gives guests new staterooms, including a Two Bedroom Family Suite, Three new restaurants, outdoor poolside movie screen, tech upgrades and more. This revitalization makes Jewel the newest ship to sail out of Rome.

The Jewel of the Seas offers innovative amenities and a myriad of onboard adventures. Designed to expand your horizons, this floating gem features a 10-story glass Centrum and panoramic sea-view elevators. Scale the rock-climbing wall and be the first to spot land, or challenge fellow pool sharks on self-leveling billiard tables. The exotic Thai-themed Solarium features a retractable roof for an idyllic pool and lounge oasis--rain or shine. Succulent steaks at Chops Grille and Giovanni's Italian cuisine are just two of the dining options. After a sparkling day at sea, stop by the Champagne Bar or catch a Broadway-style show.

As a member of the Radiance Family of ships, the design of Jewel of the Seas utilizes acres and acres of glass to ensure that passengers onboard are constantly surrounded by spectacular sweeping views of the sea. The ship combines a high percentage of balcony cabins with speed, added comforts, greater space, and an enhanced staff. Among the highlights are glass elevators facing the ocean, many dining alternatives, and a sports court.

Several onboard whirlpools and jacuzzis mean that relaxation is never far away--there's even a whirlpool located in the Solarium, where you can unwind in a serene setting. The ShipShape Fitness Center contains state-of-the-art exercise equipment, fitness classes, hands-on massages, and hair salon. Golfers will find a putting green and golf simulators, and you don't have to be an expert climber to enjoy the rock climbing wall. There is also a basketball court, game arcades, and three pools, including the special kid's pool area with its own waterslide. The art studio, well-stocked library, and host of shopping options provide other enjoyable outlets. At Royal Caribbean Online, you can access the Internet and send email.

Dine in luxury among waterfalls in the main dining room, go the upscale Chops Grille for the perfect steak, or have a romantic meal in the reservations-only Giovanni's Italian restaurant or Izumi Asian Cuisine. For more casual fare, the Windjammer Cafe has outdoor seating.

The Bombay Billiard Club, Jakarta Lounge, Singapore Slings, and Calcutta Card Club provide unique venues with a British-Colonial theme within the customizable Colony Club entertainment complex. At night, the stars shine down from above, the scene at the many bars heats up, the excitement mounts at the casino, and dynamic productions embody the glitz and special effects of Broadway or Las Vegas.

Jewel is a gorgeous ship, with lovely dark woods throughout, countered by an infusion of glass and light. The art collection is striking, and a nautical theme is apparent -- without being overstated -- throughout the ship's public areas.

First impressions count, and the initial reaction to Jewel's airy and light eight-deck high atrium (called the Centrum) is "wow!" It is definitely a passenger magnet; areas around the Centrum, whether on its ground-floor level or five decks above, are constantly in use. During the day, there are cooking demos and art auctions; at night, there's dancing to live music, with passengers hanging over banisters to watch the scene below.

Service is consistently top-notch. The cabin stewards are particularly delightful, greeting people by name whenever they met you in the halls. Dinner service in the main dining area, Tides, is excellent, with waiters remembering your likes and dislikes, even if you eat there intermittently. Passenger relations staff are helpful when needs arise, addressing them quickly.

Cuisine is consistently good, from the main dining room to the alternative restaurants, particularly at dinner, when roughly half the ship is ordering and eating simultaneously.

Entertainment ranges from the fabulously ridiculous (such as the always-funny Newlywed Game) to the pleasantly subdued (various vocal and instrumental offerings).

Jewel of the Seas blends laid-back and informal with a quality experience.


Conference Center

This comfortable conference center features state-of-the-art presentation equipment. One of our meeting rooms for our Cruise and Seminar-at-Sea will be located in this conference center. We will also hold meetings in one or more of the lounges on the ship.

Guest Services

Questions or concerns? Stop by the Guest Services desk, where our knowledgeable staff is available to assist with general ship information, port information, reporting lost or damaged goods, exchange money, break large bills, cash traveler's checks, and more.

Internet Access

There are 2 options to stay connected while onboard.

1. Wired (iCafes)
Internet stations are available onboard.
The ship has a small Internet Cafe for guests to check e-mail or surf the net on deck 4 of the ship in the main lobby area. The room also has a printer available, and charges apply for both Internet use and printing. Further workstations can be found on deck 5 on a terrace looking out at the Centrum.

1. VOOM Wireless Internet Access (Wi-Fi)
All you need is a wireless device with wifi capability. VOOM is available onboard all ships fleetwide. Prices for internet access vary and are subject to change. Log on to the network "royal-wifi" using your device, open your browser and follow instructions to log on.

Charges apply for Royal Caribbean Online, and are the same, either for the Computer Room, or for WiFi access.

Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas Dress Code

Meals in the main dining room follow this schedule:

For a 5-night cruise, 3 casual nights, 1 smart casual night, and 1 formal night.
For a 7-night cruise, 4 casual nights, 1 smart casual night, and 2 formal nights.
For an 8-night cruise, 4 casual nights, 2 smart casual nights, and 2 formal nights.

The number of smart casual and formal nights is at the ship's discretion.

Dress is casual during the day. For formal nights, quite a number of men choose to wear tuxedos for formal dining, though dark suits were more common. Women are typically found in cocktail dresses or gowns. Otherwise, country-club casual pretty much dominates in the evenings.

However, formal dress is not compulsory on formal nights, and many do not participate and instead choose to dine in Windjammers buffet to avoid the formal attire.

Gratuities / Tipping

Gratuities have already been prepaid for large groups such as ours. Royal Caribbean passengers are charged $13.50 per person, per day ($15.95 for suite guests). Passengers can modify gratuities by visiting the guest services desk while onboard. A 15 percent gratuity is automatically added to bar tabs.

Gratuities can be added on a daily basis to passengers' SeaPass accounts during the cruise. Passengers opting for flexible My Time Dining must use the prepay option.

Staying Informed: Cruise Compass

Every day during your cruise with Royal Caribbean, you will receive a copy of the Cruise Compass in your stateroom in the late afternoon. The Cruise Compass functions as your ship itinerary and lists the detailed schedule and activities for the next day.

This includes info about the ship schedule, dining, entertainment, spa and fitness, special events, lectures, port information, shore excursions, shopping, and more.

In-Stateroom TV and Movies

Every room on Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas has an interactive TV to provide up-to-date information about what is happening on the ship. The TV interfaces with your SeaPass account so you can book shows and shore excursions at the touch of a button. You can access a variety of electronic commerce services such as previewing and reserving shore excursions, watching on-demand movies and informational videos, ordering room service, enjoying games of chance, and reviewing your SeaPass account and shipboard activities.

Royal Caribbean's RCTV offers at least 29 channels of in-room television programming fleet-wide, including satellite channels such as CNN International and ESPN International; TNT; Cartoon Network & Boomerang; Discovery, best of the Travel Channel, The Learning Channel, Animal Planet and Discovery Channel; Bloomberg TV; CNN; CNN Espanol; and movie channels that play recently released theatrical films before they hit the cable circuit. Films played on the big outdoor screen also play in-stateroom.

In addition, Royal Caribbean has developed many channels exclusive to the cruise line that offer a variety of hand-picked shows in the lineup, including classic TV shows, current sitcoms and dramas, classic movies, music videos, E! Entertainment TV programs, daytime soap operas, and E! & Style network shows geared to women.

Each Royal Caribbean ship has its own full-service mini TV station at sea complete with a television production crew and editing studio. In addition to keeping the pre-produced programming on schedule and pulling down live satellite feeds, the ships' broadcast technicians produce and edit onboard TV broadcasts, from the Cruise-In-Review videos to highlights of daily entertainment, art auctions, and other activities.

Find a Quiet Retreat on the Ship

Though cruise ships are known for round-the-clock activity, you can find sanctuary on the ship. Here are some ideas:

When crowds on deck or in public areas become overwhelming, you can seek solace in your stateroom. If you want a blissfully quiet experience, book a stateroom where the laundry room, elevators, or other noisy public facilities are not within earshot. If you are traveling with the family, minimize your stress by booking a Family Cabin. Balcony staterooms or suites make for an idyllic retreat, with extra living space inside and a private veranda outside. In addition, passengers in suites get several amenities that make their vacation more relaxing.

Retreat to the glass-canopied, adults-only Solarium pool, where inspired surroundings, a light-fare cafe, and whirlpools promise the ultimate in relaxation. Rent a private cabana for a few hours, or claim a lounger in an adults-only section of the deck. Visit one of the whirlpools. Visit the Vitality Spa, a luxurious sanctuary boasting signature treatments, medi-spa services, and a full-service salon to make you glow from the inside out. Find peace at the well-stocked library, featuring a variety of genres, plus tables for cards and board games. The outside strolling area (along the jogging track) is a great place to read or nap.

Get free room service for breakfast-in-bed or lunch/dinner on your private balcony. Or visit one of the specialty restaurants for a quiet ambience. If you eat meals during off-peak hours, the main dining rooms and buffets will be significantly quieter. Try the main dining room for breakfast or lunch, rather than fighting crowds at the buffet.

On port days, stay on the ship to avoid lineups for tenders and jam-packed souvenir shops. On a sunny shore day when everyone else is off the ship, retreat to the spa, sit by the pool in a perfect spot, and enjoy nearly empty dining rooms.

Centrum Shops

The Shops of the Centrum are located just forward of the Centrum on deck 5 and offer a range of duty free goods. Distinctive storefronts offer an array of merchandise ranging from logo items, perfume, and jewelry to liquor and cruise wear.

Along with cigarettes and alcohol, the shops retail jewelry (including Swarovski Crystal and Murano), watches (from the likes of Citizen and Tag Heuer), fashion items, perfume and cosmetics, sunglasses (from Parada, Gucci, Maui Jim’s, Ray Bans and Guess), logo souvenirs (from mugs and glasses to clothing and toys), sundries, and other items.

Art Auction at Sea

Original art is displayed in the onboard art gallery as well as throughout the ship. To purchase something for your own collection, visit the popular "Art Auction At Sea" where you can purchase collectible art while onboard your cruise.

Reportedly, several companies that run art auctions onboard cruise ships will provide an appraisal that will lead you to believe you are getting very good value. Some people believe the appraisal methods are questionable. So, if you are inclined to buy pieces of art at one of these auctions, a common-sense approach is to not assume you will make a profit. Buy the art only if it suits your tastes and budget.

The Art Gallery has two locations, one on Deck 12 (left) and the other between the Photo Gallery and Theatre on Deck 5. The gallery has original artwork on display for guests to view or purchase for their own art collection. Further artwork is displayed throughout the ship.

Photo Gallery

The ship's Photo Gallery can be found on deck 5 offering media equipment and digital cameras for sale from Nikon, Canon and Panasonic, in addition to the work of the ship's photographers, including souvenir photos taken in the ports of call and portraits taken onboard.

Pets at Sea Shop

Available in the Adventure Ocean on deck 12 during certain times of the day, children can make their own cuddly toys in the Pets at Sea shop with a selection of animals and outfits to choose from.

Religious Services

While Jewel of the Seas does not have a chapel onboard, services such as Catholic Mass take place, usually in the Safari Club on deck 6, along with an Interdenominational service (pre-recorded DVD) in the Cinema also located on deck 6.


Tides Main Dining Room

Our elegant main dining room, Tides, features a cascading waterfall and a wide variety of menu items and impeccable service. The Tides is a two-tier free dining room located on decks 4 and 5 with a large central area spanning both decks, giving a light airy feel to the room. It is decorated with a moonlight and tide theme, with a large painting at the end of the room. The room also features small dining areas called Seaside and Shoreside for private group dining.

The world-class food and decor in the main dining room makes it the perfect choice for groups both large and small. From heavenly entrees to delectable desserts, and dining options to suit a range of vacationing needs, this is fine dining that everyone can enjoy.

Our Cruise and Seminar-at-Sea will have our own assigned seating area in the Main Dining Room for dinner. You will be able to sit anywhere within that area each night. Our dining hours will be "early seating": 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm nightly. We suggest arriving early so you can enjoy the company of other Seminar-at-Sea participants.

More significant, though, are the service and the food (both consistently excellent). Of particular note at dinner in the main dining room is a perfectly cooked, fall-off-the-bone lamb shank. Breakfast proves equally appealing: Eggs Benedict, ordered lightly cooked, arrives just as requested. As with other ships in the line, diners onboard Jewel of the Seas can order certain extra-fee entrees, including Maine lobster, surf and turf, and a Chops Grille filet mignon.

Breakfast is served on the lower level of the dining room, on Deck 4, from 7:30 am to 9:30 am, offering a waiter service menu featuring the usual breakfast fare of omelettes made to order, eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, French toast, smoked salmon bagels and usually a special of the day dish. A buffet area also offers a small selection of pre-made omelettes, scrambled eggs, meats and cheeses, cereals, fruits, toast and yogurts etc.

Lunch, served from noon to 1:30 pm on Deck 4 (sea days only), features a Brasserie 30 menu (designed to enable guests to complete their meal in 30 minutes) and a delicious "Tutti" salad bar with everything from lettuce, tomatoes, eggs, sweetcorn and grated carrot to meats, prawns, tuna, cheeses and breads. This salad bar is probably the best lunch onboard the ship--prepared individually and hand-tossed.

Both breakfast and lunch are open-plan seating where guests are seated at whichever tables are available at the time.

For dinner, passengers can choose between assigned early (6:00 pm) or late (8:30 pm) dining (offered on both decks) or opt for My Time Dining (on Deck 5 only), in which guests select a preferred mealtime (anytime between 6 and 9:30 pm). Our group has been assigned to early dining: at 6:00 pm.

The dinner menu offers different daily choices with nine appetizers to choose from, three different types of soups, ten entree choices, seven desserts, and classics (available every night). Options also include gluten free, lactose free, vegetarian, and vitality (healthy) options, which are indicated by the symbols next to the dishes on the menu. Additionally the menu lists the Chef’s Inspiration, which is the Chef’s recommendations for a starter, main, and dessert each day.

Windjammer Buffet Cafe

The Windjammer Cafe is the ship's free buffet venue, located on deck 11 near the ship's pools, and seating 680 guests. It features a number of food stations, divided into hot dishes, salads, and desserts. The room is elegant for such a casual place and whimsically nautical in decor. This seaside cafe offers buffet-style breakfasts and lunches. In the evenings, the cafe's casual atmosphere is complemented by a changing menu and restaurant-style service.

Behind the Windjammer, toward the aft of the ship, is a covered outdoor area. In a more scenic, partially-covered outdoor seating area, guests can dine alfresco looking out over the stern of the ship to sea.

The Windjammer features a number of food stations with breakfast selection ranging from cereals, oatmeal, breads, muffins, pastries and donuts to cold cuts and cheeses, fresh fruit, bacon, sausage and baked beans. There is also an omelette station for freshly prepared omelettes and eggs.

Lunch stations include a pizza station, a burger and sandwich station, a pasta station (with choice of sauces) and hot dishes such as barbecue pork ribs, grilled fish filet, fried chicken wings and chips, lasagne, aubergine parmigiana, and beef stroganoff. A salad bar station can also be found in the Windjammer with everything from lettuce, tomatoes, coleslaws, sweetcorn and carrots to cold cuts of meats and cheeses.

The dessert bar houses a selection of cookies, cakes, and pastries. A soft-serve frozen yogurt ice cream station is also available, offering a choice of flavors along with a bar for drink purchases and a 24-hour beverage station serving complimentary coffee, tea and water.

The Windjammer offers casual dinners, generally featuring menu items also being served in the dining room.

Opening times for Windjammer are as follows:

6:30 am to 7:00 am Early Bird Continental Breakfast (by the 24 hour coffee machines)
7:00 am to 11:00 am Buffet Breakfast
11:30 am-2:30 pm Lunch
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm Afternoon Snacks
6:30 pm to 9:00 pm Casual Dinner

Solarium Cafe

At the Solarium Cafe Pizzeria (on Deck 11 at the Solarium Pool), you will find a few quick veggie options such as good pizzas and wraps, along with crepes made to order. The crepes are available with a variety of toppings such as butterscotch, strawberries, chocolate, ham or cheese. Another great thing about the Solarium Cafe is it is open very late (until 1 a.m.) for a late-night snack.

Chops Grille

Select Dining Venue for Dinner (Fee applies)

Chops Grille is a guest favorite, the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or simply be treated to a fantastic dinner. Enjoy juicy steaks, fresh seafood, hearty side dishes, and delicious desserts in an elegant atmosphere. From filet mignon to mesquite-grilled salmon, Chops Grille offers much more than simple meat and potatoes.

Chops is Jewel of the Seas select Steakhouse located on deck 6 with seating for 86 guests and open from 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm each evening. It is Royal Caribbean's popular signature steakhouse, featuring grade-A premium cuts of steak cooked to your specifications, plus fresh seafood, hearty side dishes and signature desserts in an upscale, contemporary setting.

Chops is a steakhouse-style venue modeled after on-land places like Morton's. It has an open kitchen, and service teams of two wait on each table. Try the rib eye or the mixed grill, and split the red velvet cake for dessert. (You won't be able to finish it by yourself.)

Giovanni's Table

Select Dining Venue for Dinner (Fee applies)

A casual Italian trattoria with indoor and al fresco seating, Giovanni's Table offers rustic dishes with a contemporary flair, including toasted herb foccacia, pastas, braised meat dishes and stews, served family-style.

Royal Caribbean's Room Service

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Delivery charge between midnight and 5:00 am

Room Service options are available around the clock via 24-hour menus that offer a range of snacks and sandwiches. At breakfast, continental dishes, along with a handful of egg entrees, are available both in cabins and suites. There is no charge for room service (though gratuity is recommended) between 5 a.m. and midnight; late-night orders incur a fee.

Room Service can be ordered from the room service menu located in staterooms - either via the stateroom phone or interactive TV service.

Royal Caribbean doesn't stint on onboard entertainment, whether by day or night. Daytimes (particularly sea days), the options include bingo, dance classes and trivia contests.

Evenings, though, are a veritable six-ring circus. After dinner, you can start off at the two-deck Coral Theater -- shows specializing in Broadway-style ensemble singing and dancing. Then maybe catch a movie, join in the Battle of the Sexes competition, or hit one of the lounges for a variety of musical performances. Check the daily schedule for karaoke, which takes place at night in the Safari Lounge.

On top of the ship is the Vortex Disco, a funky revolving bar. It's primarily the ship's spot for late night revelry, but it's also a great spot for a pre-dinner cocktail at sunset. Also up top is the Hollywood Odyssey, a cozy spot with huge windows overlooking the sea.

In the evenings before and after dinner, the lounges surrounding the atrium are vibrant and lively, particularly the Champagne Bar and the Lobby Bar. Off the main path is Royal Caribbean's trademark Schooner Bar -- between Chops Grille and Giovanni on Deck 6. There is always some musical entertainment or a game going on. You can tuck into comfy booths or hang at the bar. Just past the Schooner Bar is the Safari Club, which hosts private events and serves as a secondary showroom.

To get a different perspective, head to the Crown and Anchor lounge on Deck 12, where you can peer straight down (through reinforced glass, of course) to Deck 4.

There's a casino with the usual slots and gaming tables. Located right off the casino, the Pit Stop is the ship's sports bar.

Coral Theatre

Enjoy the glitz, glamour, and special effects of Broadway or Las Vegas.

The gorgeous view isn't the only thing that will dazzle you onboard Jewel of the Seas. World-class performers from all over the globe star in awe-inspiring original shows by Royal Caribbean Productions.

It could be a contemporary stage production or a Las Vegas-inspired floorshow, a headline musical act, or a fast and loose live comedy show. No matter which show is on stage, one thing's for sure - it will leave you cheering.

Casino Royale

The avant-garde style Casino Royale is located on Deck 6 of the ship, seating 258 guests. Equipped with gaming tables, around 200 slot machines from penny slots to $25 slots and electronic gaming, it is served by its own bar.

Our glittering casino features electronic Slot Machines, Video Poker, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, and Caribbean Stud Poker. Casino Royale is a little bit Vegas, a little bit Monte Carlo. Featuring all types of table games and close to 300 slot machines, there are games for all levels of players. Come try your luck.

Those new to casinos can attend the complimentary gaming lessons to learn the ropes, while more established visitors can take part in the tournaments held on board (charges apply).

While smoking is allowed in the casino, portside by the Dice Table is allocated as a smoke free area.


The 57-seat Cinema on Deck 6 is an intimate traditional-style viewing room where recent movies are shown on a large screen. Films are shown several times a day in different languages to cater to all passengers onboard. The cinema shows first-run movies daily.

Serengeti Card Club

Game-players can venture over to the Serengeti Card Club on Deck 6, just off the Safari Club. Seating 40, the Serengeti Card Club has a selection of board games and cards in addition to large tables for playing cards on. Bridge players' get-togethers are held here.


The Centrum

The Centrum is a seven-story atrium surrounded by bars, lounges, and unique shops, which offer an array of merchadise, ranging from perfume and jewelry to liquor and cruise wear.

It's best compared to the lobby of a grand hotel.

The Lobby Bar on deck 4 at the bottom of the glass atrium seats 47 guests and serves the Centrum area, which hosts a range of activities throughout the day and night.

Schooner Bar

This nautically-themed bar is the perfect spot to enjoy a drink with friends. The Schooner Bar located on Deck 6 in-between Chops Grille and Giovanni seats 134 guests and is the ship's nautically themed piano bar.

As guests enter the bar, they will detect a unique scent that originates from pitch made of pine tar mixed with oakum used to preserve rigging that was used on tall ships. The mast-like setup in the bar with its ropes and knots are treated with this pitch which creates the aroma.

This lively venue, which includes a small seating area designed like a boat complete with a ship's wheel, is the ideal spot to enjoy a drink with friends or participate in a number of activities from trivia and Sudoku to Nintendo Wii™ Sports open play. In the evening, sing-a-longs provide a backdrop of entertainment with live guitar and piano music.

Safari Club

Aft on Deck 6 and accommodating up to 320 guests, the Safari Club is a customizable entertainment space with four different clubs: The Games Reserve (starboard side), Serengeti Card Club (port side), The Congo Bar (aft) and Zanzibar Lounge (starboard). The area includes bars and dance floor and is decorated with dark wood, parquet flooring, and large carved wood giraffe heads in the centre.

Located Aft on Deck 6 in the Games Reserve, two Gyro pool tables compensate for the movement of the ship. They adjust at light-speed to offset any ship motion and maintain a stable playing surface. To access the pool balls for a game, guests leave their onboard SeaPass card with the bartender at the Schooner Bar, who provides them with a key. When guests finish playing, they return the key to get back their SeaPass card.

Safari Club is a customizable entertainment space with four different clubs--all unique and packed with fun. This Club hosts private events and serves as a secondary showroom. It is home to a range of activities from karaoke, art auctions, the Captain's welcome-aboard champagne reception, the Battle of the Sexes game show, and "The Quest" adult game show.

As guests enter the Safari Club, the 15-seat Game Reserves is home to the ship's self-balancing Gyro pool tables, as well as large screen televisions.

On the starboard side of the Safari Club is the Zanzibar Lounge area with polished wood furniture, brass work, and tables with checkers, chess, or backgammon boards built into them for guests to enjoy. (The counters are in little glass dishes set into the tables). The lounge is served by its own bar and seats 52 guests.

Furthest Aft in the Safari Club entertainment area on Deck 6 is the 99-seat Congo Bar, which stretches across nearly the entire stern with floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests can sit at the square-shaped bar serving cocktails such as Mojitos, or at a table near the windows to enjoy the great views.

Pit Stop

You don't have to miss the big game just because you're at sea. Enjoy a beer and watch your favorite team. It's just like your favorite sports bar at home--only it's at sea.

Pit Stop is the ship's 102-seat sports bar, located outside the cinema on Deck 6. It’s the ideal place for a beer and to catch up with the latest sporting events aired on the TV screens above the bar and all around the room. It is decorated with racing memorabilia and features seating with chequered designs.

Champagne Bar

This quiet and elegant bar is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of champagne. Jewel of the Seas signature Champagne Bar, featuring a large bottle of Champagne specially created for the ship set in a glass display cabinet at the entrance, seats 52 guests and is located on deck 6.
