The official restart of sailings onboard RCI-Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas is on July 10 from Limassol (Cyprus Greece) when the ship will set sail on a 7-day Greek Isles Cruise, calling at some of the most iconic destinations in Greece like Rhodes, Mykonos, Athens (Piraeus), Santorini, Souda-Chania, Crete.
All 800 crew are fully vaccinated. They have completed a 14-day quarantine and passed 3 PCR tests.
Jewel OTS can accommodate 2702 passengers. However, following the health & safety protocols occupancy will not exceed 70%.
RCI said it will implement more stringent measures, keeping the overall experience at a high level. The decision of the line to choose Cyprus as a home port is considered "of utmost importance for the resumption of cruise tourism in the region," ranking the country among the top tourist destinations.
It is the first time a Royal Caribbean ship to be homeported in Cyprus. The liner will offer 7-night roundtrips (through October) when Jewel OTS will set sail to Miami Florida for the Caribbean season.
