Kids have all the fun everywhere. There are special discounts for them, there is special treatment and special activities too. Sure you can join them in these activities, but in our experience – leaving them to their own peace and quiet is good (they will be screaming in joy most of the time, but you get the idea).

Royal Caribbean promotes family activities, particularly those who enjoy outdoor and sports. Family program is offered on all ships, with Oasis-class and Quantum-class providing the most options.

You’ll discover the sore losers and entertainers in activities like karaoke, scavenger hunts and outdoor movies, but Royal Caribbean really makes sure to bring out the competition spirit in family sports tournaments, pool games and active challenges. For families that enjoy games, there are a variety of game shows and trivia contests, as well as onboard parties that take place in Studio B.

Kids get to take on activities they never thought they would experience – from cooking lessons to dance classes. And if you want to keep the intrigue going – solve a crime at the mystery dinner theater.

Royal Caribbean ships offer the DreamWorks Experience, a chance to interact with characters from Shrek, King Fu Panda, Madagascar and other DreamWorks features while onboard. As much as you might think this isn’t for you, we know you are excited too. Yes it is a kid’s activity, and we have awakened the kid from within you. There are shows, parades, character meals and meet-and-greets, and popular DreamWorks movies play in the theater.

Theatrical productions such as “Mamma Mia!” and “Grease” make for fabulous family evenings (these are chances for you to show your kids, how cool were you back in the day). The ice skating show is a must, and the performance in the AquaTheater (Oasis, Harmony and Allure of the Seas) will delight the entire family with synchronized swimming, acrobatics and high diving. Parents of little ones will love the black-light ImagineOcean! Puppet show, and cruisers of all ages will enjoy the 3D theater.

Onboard Amenities
Royal Caribbean’s family-friendly amenities are no longer limited to ice rinks and rock climbing walls. Our newest ships continue under the assumption that bigger is better. Oasis-class ships have multiple pools and hot tubs, mini-golf, surf simulators and a zipline – all great for fostering some serious outdoor togetherness.

Heading indoors, you can hang out at the family disco, ice skate together in Studio B or take part in a parade. The new Quantum-class ships take things to greater heights, literally, with a new skydiving simulator, bumper cars and roller skating, as well as North Star, a sightseeing “capsule” that extends out on a giant arm 300 feet over the ocean.
