Royal Caribbean International (RCI) announced that Jewel of the Seas will sail out for the summer Mediterranean season in 2016 boasting a new shine and ready to explore the ‘old world.’

The 90,090 GT ship, featuring nearly 3 acres of exterior glass will receive a complete bow-to-stern $30 Million makeover, unveiling a fresh and thoroughly contemporary style. 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 natural option for family summer travel in Europe, particularly for discovery-driven travelers looking to explore the most coveted isles and cities in and around the Mediterranean.

From May through October, Jewel of the Seas will be the only ship in its category sailing round-trip from the marquee city of Rome, Italy on an array of Eastern Mediterranean itineraries.

After its 2016 refurbishment, with new staterooms, new restaurants, technology upgrades and exciting entertainment, the 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 also will be refreshed with a new modern design and in addition a new poolside movie screen will invite guests to nights of animated and classic cinema under the stars. Most exciting for selfie-snapping, hyper-connected travelers is the addition of VOOM, the fastest internet at sea throughout the ship.
