Each person has a different set of interests and goals in mind when they sit down to book a trip . Some want to travel to a city or country they can eat their way through, while others are more interested in the history or outdoor adventures a certain spot has to offer. Whatever activity may top your travel must-do list, a port of call awaits when you set sail on a Royal Caribbean cruise.
Royal Caribbean recently unveiled its plan to enhance its interior accommodations through state-of-the-art virtual balconies. With cameras mounted strategically on each side of the ship relative to the interior staterooms’ position, live video footage of the ocean and nearby destinations will stream to an 80-inch LED projection screen mounted on the wall. Now, guests who would once have been unable to watch the waves roll by from their bedroom will have real-time views of the natural beauty surrounding the ship.
On April 16, Royal Caribbean took the stage in New York City to unveil Quantum of the Seas: the newest addition in a long line of innovative ships. With details about Quantum’s features, spaces and multi-talented godmother public, people are buzzing about all the new ship has to offer.
Once upon a time, a Caribbean cruise meant bathing suits, flip flops and shorts. Maybe you needed formal wear for dinner one night. Nowadays, cruises can take you from the depths of the ocean to the rainforest to a skydiving simulation and each of those activities requires the proper attire.
Once upon a time there was no such thing as setting sail for pleasure. Ships carried crowds of passengers from one destination to the other until the 1960s, when the wind blew in the industry’s sails and modern cruising as we know it today took form.
Onboard programming tailored for children who may be too young for surfing and skydiving is a crucial part of planning a family cruise vacation. For some of the most important pint-sized passengers, creating memorable experiences requires ingenuity, creativity and a little help from the right partners. Royal Caribbean has cultivated a number of programs with some of the biggest names in the business of entertaining children to create engaging experiences for kids at sea.
Forget leaving the kids at home or telling your parents you'll see them next Thanksgiving. Today, more extended families are taking trips together. In fact, travel agents report that 35% of clients take multi-generational trips once a year. So what is behind this growing trend of families jet-setting together?
Traveling alone involves a carry-on, a good book and a comfy neck pillow for napping. Traveling with little ones, on the other hand, involves a trunk full of baggage, many coloring books and definitely no siestas. No matter how excited kids may be for their cruise on Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, Quantum of the Seas, being stuck in a plane or car seat for hours en route is going to wear on their feelings, not to mention the parents’ sanity. But knowing how to prepare can ensure a stress-free trip to the ship so that vacation is nothing but smooth sailing.
