1. Innovative ships with a vast range of facilities

The ship in many ways becomes the destination on a Royal Caribbean cruise. The cruise line continues to trump itself with its ground-breaking new ships, which boast the most high-tech and cutting-edge facilities at sea. For thrill-seekers, highlights include RipCord by iFly, a skydiving simulator that lets guests experience for themselves the pure exhilaration of flying, and the innovative FlowRider surf simulator; pumping out more than 60,000 gallons of water per minute, this onboard surf park simulator allows you to boogie board by yourself, or enjoy a surfing lesson. Adults and kids alike can also splash out on the Ultimate Abyss, the tallest waterslide at sea. An industry innovation, many of Royal Caribbean’s ships also boast rock-climbing walls, bumper cars and even an ice skating rink, so you can practice your skills on the ice while at sea or watch one of the professional skaters in one of the amazing ice shows. With endless thrills from which to choose, guests are truly spoilt for choice on a Royal Caribbean cruise.

2. Fun for all the family

When it comes to entertainment, Royal Caribbean has the whole family covered. Kids of all ages are guaranteed endless fun and unforgettable experiences thanks to the cruise line’s award-winning Youth Club, which includes activities for all ages, ranging from interactive classes and playground sessions for babies and tots right up to late-night parties for teens. While children enjoy all of the amazing facilities and carefully curated activities on board, adults can instead choose to relax and unwind at the Vitality Spa, which offers a host of pampering treatments, or work off some of that inevitable holiday weight in the state-of-the-art gym. Award-winning shows await you and your family’s pleasure in the grand theatre come the evening, or prepare to be astounded by the choreographed acrobatics and high diving shows in the outdoor AquaTheater. Once the kids are safely tucked up in bed, parents can enjoy some late-night entertainment, listening to live music in one of the lounges, enjoying a flutter in the onboard casino, or having an after-dinner cocktail served to you by robotic bartenders in the futuristic Bionic Bar.

3. Incredible destinations

Royal Caribbean sails to more than 300 destinations around the world, with amazing itineraries and shore excursions on offer for those who wish to stretch their sea legs and venture ashore. From the icecaps in Alaska to the wonders of Down Under, Royal Caribbean has a destination to suit every type of traveller. Living up to its name, the cruise line offers comprehensive cruises to the Caribbean, allowing guests to enjoy the many islands’ pristine white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters. The cruise line even boasts its own idyllic Bahamian private island destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay, home to amazing thrills as well as places to relax and unwind. Then there's the sun-soaked Canary Islands; on Royal Caribbean's 'No-Fly Discover the Canaries' itinerary, guests will be transported to these perennially popular islands, home to dramatic landscapes, incredible volcanic geology and pristine beaches. Of course, If a beach holiday isn’t your thing, then you could instead opt for one of Royal’s cultural cruises in Europe, visiting historic cities such as Rome and Athens, tracing Viking heritage on Norway's western coast or uncovering Celtic folklore in Ireland and Scotland. Wildlife lovers will feel quite at home in Alaska, a land of rugged hills, rushing waters and undisturbed fauna. True explorers will happily venture to the South Pacific, immersing themselves in the different islands’ diverse cultures and bountiful nature.

Royal Caribbean cruises are all about offering guests as much choice as possible and this is particularly highlighted when it comes to dining on board. The vast number of restaurants and eateries on offer have been designed to cater to all travellers’ tastes, whether you’re after casual or fine dining, modern or traditional, international or local cuisine. Guests can enjoy classic Italian dishes at Giovanni’s Table; take a flavour-filled journey to the exotic Far East at Izumi; try a variety of dishes from around the world at the Main Dining Room or sample one of Royal Caribbean’s hallmark steaks at the popular Chops Grille. Kids are also well catered for, with options such as Dog House for the best hotdogs at sea; Mini Bites, where they can pick up quick delicious snacks from sliders and pizza to taquitos; and Splashaway Café, where they can fuel up on mini hot dogs, chicken tenders or sesame fried chicken.
