Dubai will be the new home of Jewel of the Seas from December 2019 to March 2020 when Royal Caribbean returns to the region after a two-year break.

The Middle East holiday experiences will feature two different seven-night Arabian Gulf itineraries and include maiden calls to Sir Bani Yas, Doha, and Bahrain.

Jewel of the Seas will be repositioning from Rome, her Mediterranean home of ten years, to Dubai on a 16-night Suez Canal cruise from 30 November to 16 December.

The first Middle East sailing will call at Khasab (Oman), Muscat (Oman), Sir Bani Yas (UAE) and Abu Dhabi, and the second at Bahrain, Doha (Qatar), Sir Bani Yas (UAE) and Abu Dhabi.

Ben Bouldin, managing director for Royal Caribbean International UK and Ireland, said: “We have seen a surge in interest in Middle Eastern holidays from this market so we are excited to announce that we are positioning a ship back in the region next year.”
