Royal Caribbean is a very modern cruise line, with an emphasis on exciting onboard activities. Its fleet of 26 ships includes the three largest ships in the world in its Oasis class, Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas, and Harmony of the Seas. All vessels boast innovative and unusual attractions and are popular with adventurous travelers who love thrills, as well as families.
The fleet is extremely diverse, so prices can vary drastically. Budget-conscious travelers might prefer older, smaller ships like the Empress of the Seas. Built in 1990, it holds 1,840 passengers and offers a completely different - and much cheaper - experience than the more expensive modern megaships like Freedom of the Seas, or the Oasis class vessels.
Although Royal Caribbean ships sail all around the world, most routes are, perhaps unsurprisingly, focused around the Caribbean. These are mostly short, ranging from 3 to 7 nights, which makes them ideal for families. Caribbean routes often visit beautiful island destinations like the Bahamas, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
Routes drop anchor in Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean's private island. With calm, clear blue waters and white sandy beaches, it's a relaxing destination which offers guests the chance to snorkel or splash around. Royal Caribbean is also well-known for its Cuban voyages, with some trips passing the night in Havana to give passengers the chance to explore. Other routes on offer include the Far East, and a 14-night South Pacific journey that runs north from Sydney, Australia, to Singapore.
Shore excursions follow the common Royal Caribbean trend of offering adventurous activities, including waverunner tours, kayaking, and parasailing. Snorkelers can explore the replica of a wrecked Spanish galleon, found a short distance from the shore. Other exciting excursions include a sunset rum tasting cruise in Bermuda and an unforgettably thrilling jetpack experience in Aruba.
As the older ships in the fleet are regularly refurbished and updated, so a selection of the adventurous activities that Royal Caribbean cruises are known for can be found on all vessels. All ships offer a rock climbing wall and enormous pool complexes, and on the modern megaships, attractions include surf simulators, bumper cars, ice skating rinks, and indoor skydiving.
Thrill-seekers will love Royal Caribbean ships. Nowhere else on the high seas can these kinds of wild, unusual activities be found. For those who don't want to get their adrenaline levels up, the ships offer relaxing spas and a number of quieter activities, like bingo, trivia competitions and wine tasting sessions.
There's plenty to keep the kids busy, too. Royal Caribbean has a partnership with DreamWorks, so characters from popular animated films like Kung Fu Panda and Shrek are available at breakfast and for selected photo ops. Larger ships have water parks for children, with water cannons and plenty of options for splashing about.
During the summer months, expect to find the ships full of families. The Adventure Ocean Youth Program has activities for kids and teens aged 3-17, and family-oriented shore excursions, such as paintball in St. Lucia and laser tag in the ancient Mayan ruins of Cozumel, Mexico, are a common feature of Royal Caribbean cruises.
Accommodation can vary a lot from ship to ship and class to class, but the largest and grandest suites have outdoor hot tubs and grand pianos. On some ships, even inside cabins have a view, overlooking the promenade. On others, Virtual Balconies stream real-time footage of the deck. All rooms include TV, refrigerator or minibar, bathroom with shower, vanity area and hairdryer. Booking a suite will give priority check-in and departure, to enhance what’s sure to be an action-packed Royal Caribbean cruise.
