One of the great things about cruising with Royal Caribbean is that there are so many incredible family-friendly activities, shows, and attractions you can try at no extra cost. Your cruise fair covers tons of thrills and unforgettable experiences, including world-class dining curated to satisfy discerning foodies and even the pickiest eaters. There’s so much to see and do onboard every ship that it can be a little tough to make sure you hit everything — especially on a ship that’s as packed with thrills as the Amplified Freedom of the Seas. Don’t worry, though — we’ve created a guide to some of the best free things to do onboard, so you can spend less time planning and more time experiencing all the complimentary thrills, dining, and entertainment this ship has to offer.

1. Team Up For A Glow-In-The-Dark Laser Tag Faceoff

During its Amplification, Freedom of the Seas got the newest laser tag quest, Clash for the Crystal City. If you’re up for a round of fast-paced, glow-in-the-dark fun, you’ll love this top-rated attraction. Players are asked to choose a side — either Snowshifters or Yetis — and go head to head on a glow-in-the-dark laser tag course. The mission? Claim a mythical ice city and save your team from extinction. The experience is family-friendly, out of this world, and 100% included in your cruise fare.

2. Let The Kids Soak Up The Fun At Splashaway Bay

The Amplified Freedom of the Seas is home to Splashaway Bay, a thrill-filled aqua park that little ones can enjoy at no extra cost. They’ll have gallons of fun splashing around the interactive water cannons, fountains, waterslides, and whirlpools. There’s even a drench bucket that provides as the perfect photo opportunity when it tips over, so parents — keep your cameras ready!

3. Put Your Best Board Forward On The Flowrider

As far as top deck attractions go, the FlowRider is a classic onboard. An iconic feature on the Amplified Freedom of the Seas, this fan-favorite 40-foot-long surf simulator lets you tame waves all day while your friends and family cheer you on from the sidelines. Try coasting over 30,000 gallons of rushing water on your feet like a pro, or skim the surf boogie-style on your belly. You can ride as many times as you like, too — this onboard activity is totally complimentary.

4. Take A Plunge Down The Perfect Storm Waterslides

Love to feel your adrenaline rushing? You should definitely add The Perfect Storm to your list of must-try top deck attractions onboard Freedom of the Seas. These dueling high-speed waterslides will send you on a twisting, turning thrill ride down three stories and into a pool below. Added to Freedom of the Seas during its Amplification, The Perfect Storm is the ultimate way to earn bragging rights onboard — and every ride down is included in your cruise fare at no extra cost.

5. Savor The Perfect Slice At Sorrento’s Pizza

One of the most-loved restaurants onboard the Amplified Freedom of the Seas is also one of the most convenient. Sorrento’s Pizza doesn’t just serve up complimentary grab-and-go goodness by the slice — it’s also open late, which means you can satisfy your pizza cravings any time of the day or night at no extra cost. You can’t go wrong with classic cheese or pepperoni pizza here, but if you’re looking to changes things up, try a slice of the meat-loaded Carnivore or the pineapple- and BBQ-infused Caribbean Dream.

6. Enjoy Crazy Good Mexican Fare At El Loco Fresh

One of the most popular dining options onboard the Amplified Freedom of the Seas is El Loco Fresh — a fast-casual spot that serves up authentic Mexican eats like tasty tacos, cheesy quesadillas, and more, all complimentary. Come in the morning for a flavorful breakfast burrito, stop in for some homemade guacamole and crispy tortilla chips at lunch, or drop by for dinner followed by a decadent Mexican flan or a creamy tres leches.

7. Taste Your Way Around The World At Windjammer Or The Main Dining Room

Every ship in the fleet has a Windjammer and a Main Dining Room — including the Amplified Freedom of the Seas. If you’re looking for a laid-back complimentary dining option, head to Windjammer.  If you’re looking for a more elevated atmosphere to enjoy your meal in, head to the sweeping, multi-level Main Dining Room, where you’ll enjoy course after course of international delicacies — like savory French onion soup, tender lamb chops, and hearty beef stroganoff. The options are endless — and they’re all included in your cruise fare.

8. End The Night With A Show-Stopping Performance

Royal Caribbean wins awards for its onboard entertainment — and the Amplified Freedom of the Seas has plenty of shows that will captivate you. The best part? Your cruise fare includes admission to every single one. Head to the ice skating rink for funky beats and mesmerizing aerial feats in the show, Or revisit all your favorite childhood fairytales in the original theater production, Once Upon a Time. From musicals to stunt-driven spectaculars, every show onboard the Amplified Freedom of the Seas is free for all guests to enjoy.

If you’re looking to make your cruise vacation onboard the Amplified Freedom of the Seas as close to all-inclusive as possible, consider purchasing a Beverage Package and a Specialty Dining Package. These options allow you to enjoy unlimited soft drinks and alcoholic beverages while onboard — plus visits to some of the ship’s top specialty restaurants — at no additional charge beyond the cost of the packages themselves. That said, even if you don’t choose to upgrade, you’ll still find plenty of fun and free things to do onboard — this guide just covers a few of them.
