Entertainment & Activities
The gorgeous view isn't the only thing that will dazzle you onboard our cruise ships. See a contemporary musical stage production or catch a live band. Or be part of the fun with ballroom dancing lessons, ice-skating, or miniature golf. Then you can write home to tell everyone about it from our Internet Cafe.
Sports & Fitness
We offer so many sport and fitness choices that you'll break a sweat just trying to choose what to do next. Play basketball or volleyball on our Sports Deck. Climb our signature rock wall. Take a spinning class. Work out with one of our fitness trainers or enjoy a yoga class with an ocean view.
With so much to do onboard, plus countless adventures on land, remember to take time for yourself. After all, it's your vacation! So why not indulge a little and head to the ShipShape® Day Spa.
Treat yourself to a pedicure or facial, or go for something you've never tried before, like a seaweed wrap or aroma stone therapy massage. Let us soothe your body, smooth your skin and send your mind to a sensory heaven. You may even surprise yourself. What seems fun and extravagant, is actually a pathway to your own personal well-being.
Dining, Bars, Lounges & Nightclubs
Dining on our cruise ships is as exciting as every other aspect of life onboard. There are so many different dishes and enticing atmospheres to experience you won't know where to start: Pasta at Portofino, Classic Burgers from Johnny Rockets, Gourmet five-course meals in the main dining room… In addition, all of our cruise ships offer low-fat ShipShape Day Spa menus, kids' menus, and, if you arrange in advance, Kosher menus. Specialty restaurants are not available on all ships.
The excitement onboard the cruise ship doesn't stop when the sun goes down. Dance the night away to hot Latin rhythms, watch a live band play your favorite song, laugh with a comedian, or enjoy a cocktail with some new friends in our bars, lounges and discos.
Fun isn't just for adults at Royal Caribbean. We offer exciting programs for guests of all ages, starting at just 6 months old! And you can feel confident leaving your children, over three years of age, with us because every member of our staff holds a college degree in education or other related field, or has qualified experience in working with children.
From 6-36 months of age, our tiniest guests and their parents are invited to participate in the Fisher-Price Aqua Babies and Aqua Tots Programs. Developed by Fisher-Price exclusively for Royal Caribbean International, these activities are hosted by trained youth staff. A parent or caregiver MUST accompany children during activity sessions.
Kids from 3-17 may take part in our complimentary Adventure Ocean® Youth Program. Adventure Ocean was specially designed to blend educational activities with just plain fun. To participate in our Adventure Ocean programs, children must be three years of age and potty-trained (diaper and pull-up free).
