3 Things Kids Love About Royal Caribbean

We pride ourselves on making sure our cruises are suitable for the whole family. We offer loads of activities for everyone, with a large number of onboard facilities specially tailored towards younger cruisers, we have everything from rock climbing walls to mini golf courses and more! From eating pizza at Sorrento’s and ice cream on the pool deck, to our award-winning kids’ clubs, we know a thing or two about keeping our young guests entertained from the moment they step onboard.

Activities

From climbing walls to real-life surf simulators, we’re certainly not short of things to do onboard. In fact, you’ll find that sometimes your kids are having so much fun, it can be difficult to persuade them to go home! They can fly across the top deck on our zip-line, head to the SeaPlex for a go on the dodgems, or practice their golf swing at the mini golf course. If playing games is their thing, they’ll love the Sports Court where they can play football and basketball. On the pool deck, there are table-tennis tables to practice your skills – look out for the tournaments that are hosted onboard!

Playing sports onboard is the ideal way for your children to socialise and make friends; they’ll have the time of their lives and get to try something new. Our facilities and activities vary from ship to ship, so take a look at what’s onboard before you book.

One thing you’ll certainly never be short of is finding a swimming pool to take a dip in. If you’re on a Freedom Class ship, your children can make a splash in the H20 Zone, a water playground for children. If you’re sailing on Harmony of the Seas, you can brave the Ultimate Abyss – the tallest slide at sea, at over 150ft above sea level. Slip and slide down 10 decks at 9-miles-per-hour from a glass platform with some incredible views! Explore the full range of incredible onboard activities.

Our Food

With an array of restaurant options to choose from, we guarantee that even the pickiest eaters will be satisfied. There’s even everyone’s favourite – pizza! Sorrento’s is one of six casual-service dining options on Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, offering something for everyone at no extra cost. Whether your favourite topping is pepperoni, ham and pineapple, or perhaps a veggie feast, we assure you that your kids will be in cheese and tomato heaven at Sorrento’s. Wherever your destination, you’ll feel as if you’re visiting the Big Apple in this Little Italy-esque restaurant.

If food on-the-go seems more appealing to you, you should indulge in a visit to ‘The Dog House’ – the #1 gourmet hot dog destination at sea. We offer sausages and bratwursts with a ton of tasty toppings, all in freshly-baked buns. If you want to grab a snack between activities or need a quick tasty treat, you’ll find the SeaPlex Dog House near the SeaPlex sports arena on Quantum and Anthem of the Seas, where you can enjoy a quick, tasty bite.

If you and your family share a sweet tooth, then our Cupcake Cupboard on Freedom class ships will certainly leave you satisfied. We offer cupcake decorating classes for those who want to get creative with their food, as well as a wide variety of beautifully pre-decorated cakes that definitely look good enough to eat! If that’s not enough tastiness for you, look out for our complimentary all-you-can-eat frozen yoghurt machines next to the children’s pools and Windjammer café. Offering chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavours, these are perfectly placed for whenever you need a quick sweet treat!

Entertainment

We have both indoor and outdoor cinema screens on our ships, showing the latest must-see films. 3D screenings also run on some ships, so the whole family can enjoy their favourite characters. We also have an Xbox Live console area for those kids, and kids at heart, to play the latest releases onboard Quantum and Anthem of the Seas.

Onboard WiFi enables you to use Skype and social media onboard to stay in touch with home. With access to VOOM Internet – the fastest internet at sea, teenagers can share pictures of the fun they’re having, as well as stream movies from anywhere on the ship.

Hold the applause! Our onboard entertainment varies from Broadway shows to synchronised swimming, trampolining and breathtaking lightshows. Find this and more at the AquaTheatre, an outdoor ampitheatre at the back of the ship which is a once-in-a-lifetime cruise experience not to be missed.

If you want some help with organising your children’s time when cruising with us, our award-winning ‘Adventure Ocean’ kids programme is geared up for all ages, from toddlers through to teens. We host everything from interactive playground sessions for tots, to sports matches and parties for teenagers, so there’s plenty to keep them entertained.

With all this excitement waiting onboard, the kids will love our family cruise holidays!
