Mini Breaks and Short Sailings

By BijalMonday 01st June 2015

Great locations, like Paris and Bruges, are packed with culture and easy to get to. Great locations, like Paris and Bruges, are packed with culture and easy to get to.

A mini break can be just as action-packed as a two-week holiday, the key is making the most of your travel time. With Royal Caribbean, you can combine travelling with a whole host of different activities, so you’ll never be stuck for something to do.

As soon as you step onboard, you have the option of exploring your comfortable stateroom, heading to the spa, or splashing around with the kids in one of the swimming pools. Here are just some of the things that we love about choosing a short sailing cruise for your next mini break holiday.

Our restaurants onboard, like Chops Grille, offer up delicious food for you to enjoy every day. Our restaurants onboard, like Chops Grille, offer up delicious food for you to enjoy every day.

Pack more in to your short sailing mini break

When planning your mini break, you might be planning fantastic shore excursions, thinking about the local culture and the wonderful food you can enjoy on your next holiday. Here at Royal, we think that the journey is just as important as the destination, which is why we’re currently offering complimentary upgrades on a number of our cruises, including those travelling from Southampton to Paris and Bruges on Anthem of the Seas and Explorer of the Seas. This is a really great opportunity for first-time cruisers, as you’ll get a taste of life onboard, as well as some free spending money, up to $200! So have a spa treatment on us, or maybe peruse the onboard shops and get something special for a loved one back home. You could even splash out on a meal at one of our fantastic restaurants, like the extra special Wonderland. Our fantastic selection of onboard activities are what separate us from the rest.

Short sailings are a great way to keep the kids entertained

If you’re travelling with the family, it can sometimes be tricky to keep everyone entertained. What happens if one person wants to pop to the theatre, but someone else wants to go skydiving? That’s not a problem, as we’ve got something for all ages and tastes. Try something new and challenge your family at the FlowRider, to see who can stand up for the longest! Travelling with younger children? Our Royal Babies club provides a positive and comfortable environment for both babies and parents, and we’re sure you’ll love the variety of skills that are developed through gentle play, for babies aged between six to 18 months. Similarly, toddlers up to 36 months can take part in our Royal Tots sessions. Kids will love the activities that we’ve designed to combine learning and playtime, so your little ones can learn new skills, whilst the whole family travels to your next holiday destination. Check out our Royal Babies sessions for ways to keep the little ones entertained. Check out our Royal Babies sessions for ways to keep the little ones entertained.

The ideal time to indulge yourself

Time spent in transit can be tiring and can often feel like a real chore. We believe that your holiday should start as soon as you step onboard with us, and our famously fast check-in times mean that you spend less time managing your luggage, and more time treating yourself. Our world class Vitality Spa offers you unique treatments in a truly tranquil atmosphere. With treatments like youth-enhancing facials, stone therapy massages, and professional acupuncture, with us, your needs are put first. If you’re just looking to stay active onboard, we’ve got a range of FitSpa programmes that will help you keep fit and feeling great.
