When it comes to quick Caribbean island hops, few ships hold a candle to Navigator of the Seas. This Amplified Voyager Class star has all kinds of family-friendly onboard activities, foodie-approved specialty restaurants, amazing cruise bars, and electrifying nightlife to keep the vacation vibes going strong all weekend long. Chasing thrills on a budget? No problem. You’ll find lots of great free things to do onboard this ship, too — like white-knuckle rides down epic waterslides, spectacular entertainment, and complimentary dining that packs bold flavor into every bite — all included in your cruise fare. To help you get ready for your fun-filled adventure onboard, we’ve rounded up ten of the top things to do on the Amplified Navigator of the Seas.


1. Conquer The Longest Waterslide At Sea

If you’re looking for record-setting onboard attractions, this is your ship. The Amplified Navigator of the Seas is the first ship in the fleet to debut The Blaster aqua coaster — and this one is the longest waterslide at sea. Take the plunge and get ready for a wild ride as five waterjet blasters propel you along a twisting, turning adventure filled with hair-raising drops, thrilling dips, and the longest stretch of slide ever suspended over water. Conquer it solo or buddy up and ride with a friend.


2. Get Swept Away On Another One-of-a-kind Ride

If you’re still craving more thrills after your ride along The Blaster, get in line for its sister slide, Riptide. The only headfirst mat racer waterslide at sea, this exhilarating experience thrusts you along a translucent bend that curves right over the side of the ship. You’re going to want to keep your eyes open for the captivating views you’ll score as you race along this next-level Amplified attraction.


3. Suit Up For An Action-Packed Glow-in-the-dark Laser Tag Battle

Royal Caribbean was the first cruise line to introduce glow-in-the-dark laser tag on its fleet — and Navigator of the Seas is one of the best ships to experience it firsthand. If you’re bold enough to sign up for this adrenaline-amping experience, you’ll be assigned to a team — either robots or aliens. Then you’ll get to suit up and take on the opposition in a battle to claim the last planet for light years around. Whether you’re playing solo, with your besties, or with your little ones, Laser Tag: Battle for Planet Z is one of the top free things to do onboard.


4. Get Your Brain In The Game In Royal Escape Room: The Observatorium

Puzzle-lovers won’t want to miss the Escape Room challenge onboard Navigator of the Seas. Once inside the Observatorium, you and your teammates will have just one hour to solve a range of puzzles, teasers, and problems with hidden clues using logic, collaboration and quick thinking. The fate of the earth depends on your ability to work together — no pressure!


5. Unwind On The Resort-Style Amplified Pool Deck

One of the most popular places to hang onboard Navigator of the Seas is the pool deck. Reimagined during the ship’s Amplification, this sun-drenched chill spot offers double the surface area of the original pool, so you have plenty of space to kick back and bask in the sunshine. There’s even a Splash Pad that’s perfect for playtime with tots.


6. Soak Up The Island Vibes At The Lime And Coconut

Forget everything you thought you knew about cruise bars — the Amplified Navigator of the Seas raises the bar when it comes to tasty cocktails on deck. You’ll find plenty of drinks to quench your thirst at The Lime and Coconut, an island-themed multi-level bar with a rooftop sun deck. Tropical sips are the focus here, and at night, this hotspot turns up the party.


7. Get Creative With Your Confectionary Skills At Sugar Beach

Known for its head-spinning selection of candies and epic ice cream sundaes, Sugar Beach is arguably the sweetest spot onboard. But this sugarcoated shop isn’t just about satisfying your sweet tooth — it also offers ways to flex your creativity. Sign up for a cupcake decorating class and design your own indulgent delight with the help of a pastry decorating professional. Just check your Cruise Planner for a class schedule.

8. Try Not To Wipe Out On The FlowRider*

The Amplified Navigator of the Seas is home to a 40-foot-long FlowRider* surf simulator, where you can practice your surf skills under the eye of a pro. Grab a board and coast over 30,000 gallons of rushing water per minute, or grab a spot in the stadium seating and cheer on your fellow thrill seekers as they try to tame the perfect wave on this unforgettable complimentary activity.


9. Savor Crave-Worthy New England Style Cuisine At Hooked Seafood

If you’re a foodie, you won’t want to miss a meal at this unforgettable specialty restaurant. Added during the Amplification of Navigator of the Seas, this top-rated dining spot is all about fresh favorites from the sea — like golden crab cakes and creamy chowders, to just-shucked oysters, lobster rolls and more — plus great cocktails and decadent desserts.


10. Hit The Ice Skating Rink

In between poolside lounging and sun-soaked activities on the top deck, save some time for a trip to the ice skating rink. At night, it’s where you’ll find dazzling performances with talented professional skaters from around the world. One of the top shows on Navigator of the Seas is iSkate, a mesmerizing original production that’s all about wow-worthy stunts and awe-inspiring choreography.
