Saturday, November 25, 2023 – SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO – ship departs 8:00 PM
Puerto Rico’s 500-year-old capital is a history buff’s dream come true. The Spanish settled this harbor as a New World home base, and that influence is still evident, from the fortress walls lining the coastline to the rainbow of colonial buildings along narrow streets. Venture further out from the old town and nature unfolds. You can scale high into the jungled mountains of El Yunque Forest or keep to the foothills on a riverside horseback ride. If despacito is more your speed, pick a pristine beach and recline with codfish fritter and rum drink in hand. San Juan cruises give you the perfect outpost to dial up or dial down your vacation.

Sunday, November 26, 2023 – Cruising at Sea
Enjoy a fun day at sea on board the Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas and enjoy all the exciting Singles Cruise exclusive activities.

Monday, November 27, 2023 – BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS – 7:00 AM – 6:00 PM
You’ll find Bridgetown strikes a fine mix of island warmth and English heritage. Stately colonial buildings intermingle with colorful wooden homes, open-air markets, and catch-of-the-day cafes. Outside of the bustle of “Town,” as the locals call it, Barbados is a new kind of paradise in any direction. Cruise to Barbados and head towards the shore for pink-and-white-sand beaches that stretch on endlessly and crystal-clear turquoise waters. Or stick to the center of the island, you’ll find rolling hills and valleys, sugarcane fields and historic plantations. You can even travel underground to discover limestone caves with their own waterfalls.

Tuesday, November 28, 2023 – PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD – 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Nestled along the calm, blue-green waters of the Gulf of Paria, Port of Spain is a popular starting point for those looking to explore the best of Trinidad. The city has its fair share of marvels, too — it’s home to a centuries-old fortress, gorgeous botanical gardens, and a good number of picturesque churches. And nearby you’ll find plenty of outdoor adventures, from the shaded mangroves and winding silver rivers of the Caroni Wetlands, to the postcard-pretty sweep of shore known as Maracas Beach. 

Wednesday, November 29, 2023 – SCARBOROUGH, TOBAGO, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Travelers often overlook Tobago for its better-known neighbor, Trinidad — but this tiny island is a true Caribbean gem. Its north coast is full of secluded coves waiting to be explored, and its south coast unlocks incredible snorkel and dive sites, including Buccoo Reef, Flying Reef, and Bon Accord Lagoon. Laid-back Scarborough is the perfect jumping off point to explore the island, but it also offers plenty of ways to wile away the day — like a stroll through its botanical gardens, a visit to Fort King George, or a great meal of curry crab and dumplings at one of its charming open-air cafes.

Thursday, November 30, 2023 – CASTRIES, ST. LUCIA – 7:00 AM – 4:00 PM
From dramatic landscapes molded by ancient volcanoes to sparkling palm-fringed beaches, St. Lucia is some amazing Caribbean eye candy. Luxury resorts nestle up to the natural beauty, giving this island just the right touch of exclusivity. Cruise to St. Lucia and explore the coast by catamaran. Hike to the peaks of the soaring twin Pitons. Tour rainforests and explore the fishing villages of Anse-La-Raye. In the capital of Castries, you’ll find touches of French and British heritage, from the architecture to the cuisine.

Friday, December 1, 2023 – PHILIPSBURG, ST. MAARTEN – 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
What makes St. Maarten so unique is its blend of cultures. The island is home to 120 different nationalities speaking over 80 languages and is governed by two countries: the Netherlands and France. In fact, it’s the smallest land mass in the world to be shared by two different nations. While it may be less than 40 square miles, there’s plenty to do on this little island: you can travel back in time while exploring centuries-old ruins and get your adrenaline fix ziplining through lush tropical forests. If you’re after a little rest and relaxation during your cruise to St. Maarten, you’ll find plenty of secluded beaches where you can work on your suntan before treating your taste buds to some of the best cuisine in the Caribbean.

Saturday, December 2, 2023 – SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO – ship arrives 7:00AM
The Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas and all of our Singles Cruise guests arrive back in San Juan. After an exciting time full of fun and adventures, the cruise has finally come to an end. The memories and all your new found friendships will last a lifetime!
