Epic vacations don’t have to break the bank — at least, not when you choose to vacation with the award-winning cruise line, Royal Caribbean®. Each and every ship in the cruise line’s impressive fleet brims with endless ways to maximize your time traveling onboard. The best part? Many of these cruise experiences are all included in your travel fare at no additional cost.  

The Amplified Voyager of the Seas is no exception to this rule. From thrill-filled rounds of glow-in-the-dark laser tag and dazzling ice-skating shows that will keep you on the edge of your seat, to wow-worthy global flavors followed by poolside movie nights beneath the stars, this cruise ship offers plenty of free things to do and free places to eat. In fact, there are so many included onboard cruise activities to choose from, it helps to have a game plan before you even set foot aboard the ship. Keep reading to learn more about some of the complimentary experiences Voyager of the Seas has to offer cruise guests. 

Catch Waves On The Flowrider® Surf Simulator

The FlowRider is a Royal Caribbean mainstay that’s been wowing guests since it debuted in 2006 onboard Freedom of the Seas®. You’ll now find it on many of the cruise line’s top-rated ships, including the Amplified Voyager of the Seas. This incredible surf simulator funnels 30,000 gallons of rushing water to create the perfect swells all day. Guests can grab a board and try to carve like a pro, or hit the surf boogie-style while friends and family watch on from the stadium seating. Tame the waves as many times as you like — the FlowRider is totally complimentary to cruise guests. 

Conquer The Rock Climbing Wall

Another Royal Caribbean staple, the 40-foot Rock Climbing Wall on Deck 13 is a fun and free way to work some physical fitness and adventure into your next cruise getaway. If you’re up for the challenge, strap into a harness and test your tolerance for heights as you try to make it to the top. Those who go all the way are treated to some of the best views on the cruise ship. Adventure-seekers as young as six can participate in this included onboard activity, and reservations aren’t required. Here’s a pro tip — hit the Rock Climbing Wall early while the weather’s still cool for an easy, breezy climb, or closer to sunset for the most incredible vistas.

Suit Up For Laser Tag: Battle For Planet Z℠

Royal Caribbean was the very first cruise line to introduce glow-in-the-dark laser tag. Since then, it’s been a knockout hit on every ship that has debuted it, including the Amplified Voyager of the Seas. Here’s the scenario — the remnant of a robot civilization and an alien scouting party are battling it out to claim dominion over Planet Z, the last viable haven in the galaxy. Choose a team, gear up, and go head-to-head with your opponents in this epic, family-friendly and totally complimentary onboard activity. Play as many times as you like — just make sure you reserve your slots via the Cruise Planner app or onboard at the box office.

Tee Off On The Open-air Mini Golf Green

The secret to a perfect afternoon at sea is simple — play a few rounds on the cruise ship’s mini golf green after a day filled with onboard thrills or sun-soaked relaxation. Grab a club, line up your shots and putt your way across a fun, open-air course where you’re constantly surrounded by captivating ocean views. Tee off against your friends or family members, or work on leveling up your game solo. There’s no need to make a reservation to enjoy the green, and playing is included in your cruise fare.  

Satisfy Your Cravings 24/7 At Café Promenade

In between rock climbing, mini golf rounds, surf sessions, and glow-in-the-dark laser tag quests, you’re bound to work up an appetite. If you’re looking for quick, casual, and delicious eats, Cafe Promenade is the spot. Located at the heart of the ship on Deck Five and open 24 hours a day, it serves up a rotating selection of crowd-pleasing snacks, finger foods, and beverages. Think flaky pastries and perfectly roasted coffee in the morning, then flavorful antipasti, New Orleans-style muffulettas, fresh-pressed paninis, and decadent desserts throughout the rest of the day and night. It’s hands down one of the best free dining options onboard the Amplified Voyager of the Seas, and the late-night snack stop. 

Embark On A Foodie World Tour At Windjammer

If you’re craving something a little more substantial, there’s the iconic Windjammer, located on Deck 11. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this Royal Caribbean staple whisks guests away on a cross-continental culinary journey that spans multiple food stations, each spotlighting a different cuisine or cooking style. In the morning, fuel up on fluffy omelets crafted your way, crispy buttermilk fried chicken, and aromatic eggs bhurji. As the day winds on, taste your way from Mexico to Mongolia and from Santorini to Seoul with an array of authentic global fare curated and cooked by the ship’s talented team of master chefs. Reservations aren’t needed at Windjammer — simply walk in any time you like and savor the complimentary flavor fest. 

Settle In For Showtime At The Royal Theater Or Studio B

The Amplified Voyager of the Seas lives up to Royal Caribbean’s reputation for having stellar entertainment. Keep the good vibes going strong long after the sun sets with Broadway-inspired original productions like Rhythm & Vine, or Music in Pictures, a dazzling on-stage spectacular set to scores from all your favorite classic movies. You can also sit in for one of the ship’s awe-inspiring ice-skating shows — each is sure to keep you at the edge of your seat with deck-defying spins, jumps, and stunts. All shows onboard Voyager of the Seas are complimentary to cruise guests — just reserve your seats ahead of time via the Cruise Planner app or at the box office.

Cozy Up During A Movie Night Under The Stars

Movie nights on the pool deck are among the best free things to do onboard Voyager of the Seas, especially if you’re in the mood for a low-key night outdoors. Grab a blanket and munch on some popcorn as you kick back and enjoy a rotating selection of popular featured films on the giant projector screen by the pool. Add the cool brush of sea breezes, the soft sound of the waves churning all around you, and the glimmer of stars filling the night sky above, and you have the recipe for a perfect evening.

One of the best things about cruising with Royal Caribbean is that you’ll never be bored while you’re at sea, especially on a voyage that’s been Amplified with as many game-changing — and complimentary — cruise activities and dining as Voyager of the Seas. Remember that these are just some of the many free things to do onboard this top-rated ship. Check your Cruise Planner (or Royal Caribbean app) regularly once you’ve kicked off your vacation for even more free pop-up events, experiences, and dining options.
