Savvy travelers know that Royal Caribbean® ships deliver the best family cruises, with plenty of thrill-filled onboard attractions, top-notch cruise dining options, and spectacular, family-friendly cruise entertainment sure to wow guests of all ages. Whether you’re traveling with your little ones, teens, or grandparents; every ship in the fleet was designed with families in mind. The Amplified Voyager of the Seas® is one cruise ship that really shines in this department. 

Beloved by guests, this award-winning fleet-favorite offers countless ways to level up family bonding during your next sun-soaked escape. Like adrenaline-amping, tide-taming sessions on the FlowRider®* surf simulator, epic glow-in-the-dark laser tag battles, poolside movie nights under the stars and so much more. The food scene onboard Voyager of the Seas is also top-notch and bound to please even the pickiest eaters.

With so many unique experiences onboard, having a game-plan before you embark on your getaway will help ensure a fun vacation for the whole family. Here are some of the top cruise activities for kids and parents sailing onboard the Amplified Voyager of the Seas

Spark Your Competitive Side With Family Cruise Activities

What’s a family vacation without a little friendly competition? Fortunately, the Amplified Voyager of the Seas offers lots of fun cruise activities and engaging ways to challenge friends and family both indoors and outdoors. There’s the cruise ship’s iconic mini golf course, Voyager Dunes, where you can show off your putting skills while soaking up captivating, panoramic ocean views. There’s also the Sports Court on Deck 13, where players can get in on some basketball or volleyball action in teams or one on one. And there’s Laser Tag: Battle for Planet Z℠, an epic intergalactic clash that splits players up into two warring factions — aliens versus robots — and pits them against each other on a one-of-a-kind, glow-in-the-dark course. What’s more, all of these cruise activities for kids, teens, and parents are completely complimentary to guests, so you can raise the stakes or call “rematch” as many times as you want for free.  

Chase Adrenaline-amping Thrills At Sea

If you’re traveling with thrill-seekers, Voyager of the Seas will not disappoint. This fan-favorite ship was Amplified with all kinds of exhilarating onboard cruise activities for families. One of its most popular features is The Perfect Storm℠, the boldest water slide duo at sea. It’s made up of twin racer slides called Typhoon℠ and Cyclone℠, and each offers a wild, pulse-pounding ride filled with hairpin twists, turns, and translucent stretches that yield dazzling sea views. The ship is also home to the FlowRider®*, a surf simulator — and Royal Caribbean mainstay — that funnels 30,000 gallons of rushing water to create awesome swells all day long. You can ride the waves any way you like — boogie-style or on your feet like a master shredder. And of course, no cruise getaway onboard Voyager of the Seas is complete without a trip up the 40-foot Rock Climbing Wall. Harness up and test your tolerance for heights as you climb your way all the way to the top. The reward? Some of the best views on the entire ship. 

Enjoy Your Time Poolside In The Sun

The best family vacations at sea all include at least a full day spent soaking up the sun and the fun poolside — especially if you’re cruising onboard a ship like the Amplified Voyager of the Seas. Claim a few loungers in the sun or the shade, kick back, and enjoy all the top-deck action. On any given sea day, you can look forward to dance-offs, belly flop competitions, DJ-led pool parties and so much more. Plus, the ship’s main pools are located steps from Windjammer, where you can fuel up on delicious, complimentary cuisine all day long. If you and your family are craving something sweet instead, it’s only a quick trip to the ice cream parlor on Deck 5 and back again. 

Introduce Your Kids To An Onboard Fun Zone All Of Their Own

If you’re traveling with younger kids, Voyager of the Seas is a great option for your next cruise vacation. The ship is home to a totally reimagined Adventure Ocean℠ Youth Program complete with redesigned spaces for tots to tweens. Kids here are kept engaged with fun, whimsical and supervised activities tucked into every nook and cranny, from arts and crafts to science experiments and scavenger hunts. Even teens get their own cool hangout — the updated Living Room, which encompasses plenty of space to hang out, mingle and make new friends. It also features a new outdoor chill space called The Back Deck. Cruising with a baby? No problem. Royal Caribbean offers babysitting and childcare services during the daytime and after hours for an additional fee.

Make Every Family Dining Experience Different From The Next

When you sail with Royal Caribbean, you can rest assured every meal is going to be memorable — and the Amplified Voyager of the Seas offers a long list of foodie-approved cruise dining options that will turn each family dinner into an unforgettable experience. One guest-favorite specialty restaurant is Giovanni's℠ Table, which celebrates rustic Italian flavor through dishes like fluffy gnocchi tossed in thyme-scented lamb sauce, rich risotto finished with truffle mushroom and porcini tapenade, veal osso buco served with creamy cheese polenta, and a tiramisu that would make nonna proud. Izumi Sushi and Hot Rocks is another great option that will wow everyone in the family. At this Royal Caribbean staple, flavorful meats sizzle to perfection on ishiyaki grilling stones, and the sushi and izakaya-style starters are always out of this world. Of course, you should definitely set aside a night for the Main Dining Room, where the staff delivers five-star service and world-class dishes from around the world — think Moroccan-spiced ahi tuna, mojo-marinated bone-in pork loin, tender prime rib, and more.

Enjoy The End Of Each Night On A High Note

When you sail onboard a cruise ship like Voyager of the Seas, the memory-making continues long after sundown thanks to award-winning entertainment at the Royal Theater and Studio B. If you’re into Broadway-style musicals, you’ll love Broadway Rhythm & Rhyme, which celebrates classic and contemporary stage hits from the Great White Way. Hardcore movie buffs will find lots to rave about in Music in Pictures, an irresistible revue of memorable scores and songs from classic films. And in Studio B, you can watch as world-class figure skaters wow the crowd with head-spinning twirls, gravity-defying jumps, and flawless figure-eights. You’ll be happy to learn every show onboard is complimentary for cruise guests — just make sure you reserve your seats via the Cruise Planner app or at the box office.

When it comes to incredible family vacations, nothing beats a Royal Caribbean cruise. Though every ship in the fleet delivers spectacular shows, delicious dining, and unforgettable activities for guests of all ages, the Amplified Voyager of the Seas is a great choice for families looking to maximize their time away from home. These are just a few of the many wow-worthy attractions onboard — there are plenty more thrills, restaurants, and family-friendly experiences to discover during your vacation cruise getaway.
