Start your trip

Posted on 10/12/2022

On a Royal Caribbean cruise, there are plenty of things to eat, shows to watch and adventures to be had for every type of traveler and family member. What’s more, whichever action-packed ship you choose and private destination you visit, you’ll have your pick of one-of-a-kind thrills that range from skydiving and surfing to ice skating and zip lining. With these Royal Caribbean signature experiences, combined with quintessential vacation favorites—like epic pools, delicious food, live music and great nightlife—you can make the most of your time away and check off the bulk of your must-do list all in one trip. Check out a few things you can only experience on a Royal Caribbean cruise:

Skydive on RipCord by iFly

Don a jumpsuit, goggles and helmet to get the rush of skydiving while safely gliding inside a 23-foot-tall glass wind tunnel on skydiving simulator RipCord by iFly, the first of its kind on a cruise. The best part? The backdrop of endless ocean views and the varying shades of blue they offer.

Hang 10 on FlowRider

Surf’s up for beginners and pro surfers alike on FlowRider, where thousands of gallons of rushing water make for conditions that are always on point. Brave the waves on your belly or on your feet—or enjoy the thrill of cheering on your family and friends from the sidelines of the only surf simulator on a cruise.

Brave the tallest slide at sea, The Ultimate Abyss

From more than 150 feet above the ocean, race down 10 stories of twists, turns, lights and sounds on The Ultimate Abyss. If waterslides are more your thing, check out The Blaster aqua coaster, the longest slide at sea at 800 feet in length; or Riptide, the only headfirst mat racer on a cruise, which will hurtle you through a translucent tube overlooking the ocean. There’s also Tidal Wave, the first boomerang-style waterslide, and more.

Watch entertainment across four “stages”

“Showtime” takes on a whole new meaning with front-row seats to full-scale entertainment across air, ice, water and stage. From award-winning Broadway favorites, such as “Hairspray” and “Grease,” to amazing acrobatics by Olympic-level divers at AquaTheater—home to the deepest pool at sea—to immersive 270-degree robotic dancing screens at Two70, Royal Caribbean shows are bar none. Make sure to reserve your seat in advance on the Royal Caribbean app.
