Royal Caribbean will be introducing new Spa Staterooms aboard all the ships in its Radiance, Voyager, Freedom, Oasis, Quantum and Quantum Ultra classes, which includes the Radiance-class Jewel of the Seas, homeporting annually in Dubai for the 2019/2020 and 2020/21 seasons.

The new staterooms will open for booking this month, according to Royal Caribbean, but the cruise line hasn’t confirmed when exactly they will be rolled out aboard each ship, beyond saying that they will be available for the 2021/22 deployments.
