On a Royal Caribbean cruise, your holiday begins the very moment you come on board. From sunrise to sunset and around every corner, there’s always something exciting for you to do. There are even programmes for kids of all ages, from 6 months to 17 years. Whether you want to scale the heights of the rock climbing wall, enjoy a round on the miniature golf course, slip some blades on and take a spin on the world’s first ever ice rink at sea, or simply relax and soak up the sun – with Royal Caribbean the time is yours to do as you please.
Perhaps you’ll indulge in a little shopping along the fabulous Royal Promenade and attend an art auction. Or on the other hand, if your idea of physical exertion is simply turning the next page of your favourite book, our Solarium is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Choose to enjoy a drink by the pool, slip into a relaxing whirlpool, take a leisurely stroll around the deck or discover the rejuvenating pleasures of a relaxing massage, a soothing spa or a seaweed wrap in the largest sea-based health and fitness centre – the magnificent ShipShape® Centre. With so much choice, you’ll find deciding what to do can be an activity in itself.
Royal Caribbean delivers guests a multitude of first-at-sea experiences, including Virtual Balcony staterooms where a floor-to-ceiling screen brings live views of the sea and destinations into interior staterooms, the FlowRider surfing simulator, Two70 an immersive, multimedia entertainment venue complete with dancing Roboscreens, and more. From bumper cars and zip-lining to skydiving simulators and giant slides, the experience onboard is nothing short of incredible, with every moment complemented by Royal Caribbean’s signature Gold Anchor Service. Leave what you know behind and let your imagination go.
From the tinkling steel-pan sounds of the calypso band that entertain you around the pool, to the show-stopping numbers in our fabulous West-End style productions, there’s a fantastic variety of entertainment for you to enjoy throughout the day and late into the night. Take in a show, catch up on the latest movies, chill out with some cool jazz or be amazed by the thrilling stunts of divers at the AquaTheatre.
There’s also a host of superb bars and venues to suit your every mood and occasion – from celebrating with a glass of bubbly in the Champagne Bar to sipping a cocktail mixed by one of the robotic bartenders at the Bionic Bar®. Perhaps you prefer to chance your luck in the Casino Royale. Try your hand at Blackjack or Stud Poker, have a roll of the dice on the craps table or place your chips on the roulette wheel. And after the thrill of the casino, enjoy the excitement of the nightclub to dance away another magical night.
No journey with the Royal Caribbean would be complete without their wonderfully curated shore excursions. Fancy a romantic getaway to explore cultural delights, or a thrilling family adventure that lets you connect with nature? Put the “wow” factor into your holiday by booking the specially designed guided shore trips – including private tours and/or for those with accessibility needs – which could involve culinary workshops conducted by local experts or off-the-grid trekking.
If fun in the sun is your idea of a perfect day, then why not head to the Bahamas where you can stopover at CocoCay, a private resort exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests. Brave one of the tallest slides in North America, take in the view from a helium balloon, or savour a cocktail in your own floating cabana.
Wherever your destination, and there are over 260 on offer, you can explore any of them your way, no matter what type of experience you are after. There is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to making your expedition unforgettable, and with countless marvels yet to discover, Royal Caribbean gives you more reason to dream big and bold.
Respect for the ocean is a way of life at Royal Caribbean, and this ethos has led them to achieve many environmental goals from the reduction of waste and lower carbon footprint, to sustainable sourcing and wildlife preservation.
- ECO-FRIENDLY TOURISM
Partnering with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Royal Caribbean are focused on ethical tourism and now offer 1,500 tours across their fleet that are certified to the Global Sustainable Tourism (GSTC) standard.
- REDUCE EMISSIONS
In addition, 60% of their ships are equipped with Advanced Emissions Purification (AEP) systems. Since 2005, Royal Caribbean have cut down on emissions by 35% and have now introduced a new target to reduce emissions by a further 25% in 2025!
- INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY
Royal Caribbean have digitally transformed themselves to become more energy efficient. Using AI to optimally route ships for weather safety, fuel efficiency, and guest comfort, they can even keep track of how much energy a single oven is using in a ship’s galley.
- ALTERNATIVE FUEL
Whilst designing their next class of ships to use Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), a cleaner form of energy, Royal Caribbean is also investing and exploring fuel cells as an alternative power source for some hotel operations on board their newest ships.
- JOURNEY TO ZERO WASTE
With their motto to reuse and recycle, 100% of the Royal Caribbean fleet is equipped to be landfill free, and in the last two years, they have even reduced their single-use plastic consumption by 60%!
- SOURCING GOALS
Doing their part for ocean and wildlife conservation means that even the food served on Royal Caribbean ships will be sustainably sourced. With the oceans covering 71% of Earth, it is imperative that the waters, along with all marine life are protected. This is why Royal Caribbean are now doing even more to improve their supply chain. Their aim is to source 90% of wild-caught seafood from MSC-certified fisheries and 75% of farmed seafood from ASC-certified farms in North America and Europe.
