Wild about Wildlife: World Animal Day

By HarryFriday 04th October 2013

Watching the latest wildlife documentary never fails to amaze us - animals are strange and wonderful. But watching a TV programme will never match the experience of seeing animals in the wild.

What’s more, today is World Animal Day, when people around the world take time to celebrate the animal kingdom and highlight the plight of endangered species. The 4th October was the chosen date because it’s the feast day of Francis of Assisi (a patron saint of animals), but it’s become such a hit that it’s now celebrated by animal-lovers of all beliefs and nationalities. From Indonesian elephants to tropical sea creatures, we’re so lucky to have the opportunity to see these animals in their natural environment!
There are plenty of wildlife destinations and excursions to choose from with a Royal Caribbean cruise holiday. You’ll get to see animals up close and then sleep soundly at night in the comfort of your room. So pack up your binoculars and camera and let’s go wild!

For active adults

Coastal Wildlife Cruise, Alaska
Spot black bears foraging on the shore plus eagles, seals and humpback-whales on a high-speed boat trip on our Alaskan excursion.
Whale Watching Tour
Horseback Ride & Swim, Jamaica
Ride bareback through the Caribbean Sea during your day in Jamaica on a Canada/New England cruise. Hold on tight as you ride bareback on the horse as it swims through the water. This is sure to be a completely new experience for regular horse riders back home. Find out more.
Lanai Snorkel & Dolphin Watch, Hawaii
Board the eco-friendly catamaran to head out on a snorkelling adventure at Lanai reef. See wild spinner, bottlenose and spotted dolphins and learn to interpret their behaviour with the help of your knowledgeable guide.

A Wildlife Adventure Tour, Belize
Active teens and adults will love this motor launch trip up the Old Belize River. Look out for crocodiles, iguanas, howler monkeys and lots of bird life. After lunch you’ll head to Belize sanctuary to see 5 types of wildcat and the Tapir, the national animal of Belize.Bear
Alaska Cruisetour
Get even closer to nature on our Alaska Cruisetours. These combine an Alaska cruise with a land-based adventure. You’ll get to explore all key ports of call before venturing inland with local expert guides on our inclusive tours or exploring at your own pace.
The 12-night Escorted Alaska Cruisetour makes for great family adventures, with 5 days on land and a 7-night cruise north to Hubbard Glacier onboard Radiance of the Seas. On the land-based part of your trip, you’ll learn about endangered species at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre and see schools of colourful fish at the Alaska SeaLife Centre in Seward.
