Royal Caribbean has announced that they will once again offer cruises to Turkey beginning next fall.  The cruises will take place on the 90,000 gross ton cruise ship, Jewel of the Seas.

Royal Caribbean, along with other cruise lines, stopped offering cruises with port stops in Turkey two years ago.  But now, cruisers will once again be able to discover the remnants of the famed Library of Celsus, visit the House of the Virgin Mary, and sample authentic Turkish mezes and more.

The cruises to Turkey will take place during 12 night cruises out of Rome, Italy in 2019. Port stops during these cruises include Jerusalem, Sicily, Cyprus, Rhodes, Ephesus, Athens, Naples, and Capri.  These itineraries will be unique and like no other cruises offered by Royal Caribbean.

Right now, Royal Caribbean has added port stops to Turkey on two sailings. The sailings will depart on October 30, 2019 and November 11, 2019.

These new sailings to Turkey will be complimented by the cruise ship’s seven day cruises to the Western Mediterranean out of Civitavecchia (Rome).

Jewel of the Seas is currently based in San Juan, Puerto Rico sailing seven night cruises to the Southern Caribbean.  In early May, the ship will reposition to Europe for a summer of sailing in the Mediterranean.

After the summer season, Jewel of the Seas will head to the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami, for the winter Caribbean season.  Once the winter Caribbean season is over, the cruise ship will once again head over to Europe for six months.
