For kids, there can be no greater adventure than sailing the high seas. And to make it even more special, they created an Adventure Ocean® Youth Programme, specifically designed to entertain children from 6 months to 17 years with an exciting range of fun and educational supervised activities. There’s even the added excitement of Adventure Beach – an area especially for families to enjoy together, with a swimming pool and water slide, it’s loads of fun! Adventure Ocean® Adventure Ocean® is specially designed to blend educational activities with just plain fun. Every cruise is different. But one thing never changes: your child will get to learn about local customs, do cool science experiments, and make great new friends. Family holidays will never be the same again.
With Adventure Ocean®, you can do activities as a family, plus parents get some free time to themselves – and children get some time to have their kind of fun. That includes special children-only meals, a TV station with channels just for children, lots of great play areas and even a nightclub for teens. Royal Caribbean cruises are designed to bring families closer together and for everyone to have the time of their life! To participate in group activities, children must be potty-trained. No pull-ups or nappies, please. Who is it for? Adventure Ocean® is a free programme, open to all guests aged 6 months – 17 years. Children are cared for by age: 6 – 18 months, 18 – 36 months, 3 to 5; 6 to 8; 9 to 11; 12 to 14; and 15 to 17 years. If your child wants to join a different age group, they must participate in one day-activity session and one night-activity session with their proper age group first. The Adventure Ocean® Manager and youth staff will then make the decision based on their maturity level. The People Behind the Programme Each Adventure Ocean® staff member holds a college degree in education, recreation or a related field, from an accredited college or university, or has qualified equivalent experience in working with children aged 6 months – 17 years.
