6 Reasons to Get Excited About Summer

Here at Royal, we’re getting ready for summer. It’s our favourite time of year as the weather is hot, and school’s out, so it’s the perfect time to plan your next family holiday. Whether you’re choosing to simply lie in the garden and sunbathe, or you’re preparing for the cruise holiday of a lifetime, we’re sure that you’ll agree with our reasons for getting excited about summer.

Discover your dream beach, on your next summer holiday. Discover your dream beach, on your next summer holiday.

1. Snoozing in the sun

There’s nothing better than finding a good sun spot and taking a deep breath, before falling into a blissful nap. Sunny weather is the perfect time to grab your favourite book and pull up a deckchair, or take a luxurious lounger in the Solarium and enjoy the warmth of the sun on your skin. The adult only pool gives panoramic views over the ocean, and you’ll never feel stuffy with its cool natural breeze. Better yet, grab your towel and pick a good spot on the beach to relax.
Pool games with the kids is a great way to spend some quality time together. Pool games with the kids is a great way to spend some quality time together.

2. Fun pool games with the kids

School’s out! So the kids are around and full of energy. Summer is a great time to spend some quality time together, and one of our favourite ways to do that is by playing pool games. Splash around in the fun and colourful H20 pool, or if you’re on the beach, then get the kids to dip their toes in the sea. We love a good game of racquetball too, as it’s a great way to get active on the beach! If you’re a real adrenaline junkie, try out FlowRider, and see how long you can stand up for.
Taste fresh local produce. Taste fresh local produce.

3. Eating fresh food

We love good food, and summer is the time for barbeques and eating well! Travelling is the perfect time to enjoy new foods, and with the option of travelling to places like the Caribbean and Dubai, you’ll have so many chances to taste new and exotic dishes from around the world. Setting up a BBQ in the garden is one of our favourite family activities when at home, and on holiday you can encourage the kids to eat new foods at restaurants such as Jamie’s Italian, where they can make their own pasta.
Enjoy a film under the stars. Enjoy a film under the stars.

4. Watching films outdoors

One common event that’s great fun during the summer is viewing your favourite films outdoors. It’s such a popular event that plenty of cities have outdoor cinema screens, and we even have our very own onboard our ships. With the summer heat comes pleasantly mild evenings, and these are a great time to enjoy a cool drink, and watch a film under the stars.

5. Bringing out your summer wardrobe

Remember that dress that’s been hanging up at the back of your wardrobe for the past six months? It’s time to dust off your summer wardrobe and enjoy wearing less! Spending time wrapping up during winter can be arduous, and we love getting our legs out in the summer. The most comfortable of outfits might be that long flowing dress you bought in the sale so long ago, so find the perfect sandals and sunhat for its big debut!
Treat the kids to some ice cream! Treat the kids to some ice cream!

6. …Ice cream!

Doesn’t everyone love ice cream? Even if it’s just for the kids, summer is the time to enjoy delicious ice cream flavours like chocolate and strawberry, and it’s a lovely treat to give the little ones whilst taking a break from activities in the shade. We love the classic flavours of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, and there’s some delicious soft serve ice cream to be enjoyed onboard our ships. Keep your eye out for delicious Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, too!
