Stop thinking about where to holiday, start thinking about how to holiday. How about six destinations, in seven days? High dives, paraglides, water rides, big slides.

FIRST TIME CRUISE TIPS

Myth Buster

Cruising holidays have changed - our ships are bigger and bolder with world-class entertainment, top-notch food, exhilarating activities and spacious accommodations. If you’ve never cruised before, you might have a few notions that we’d like to dispel. Don’t take our word for it, read what our guests said.

IS IT GOOD VALUE?

Definitely. When you think about all the destinations, activities, entertainment, theatre and dining that is included, the value for money is amazing. And it’s even better with Royal Caribbean – we offer over 50 experiences and activities at no extra cost.

WILL WE GET BORED?

Onboard you’re surrounded by activities that’ll have you ticking off your bucket list. Skydiving simulator by iFly, surf simulator by FlowRider®, rock climbing, zip lining, a luxury spa, West End theatre, pools and slides. That’s before you’ve hit the destinations.

ARE THINGS REALLY FORMAL?

Every moment of your holiday is personalised, tailored and as flexible as you like. Want to skip lunch and go surfing? Like flip-flops more than finery? Want to watch movies instead of musicals? Prefer me-time to zip lines? It’s up to you.
