1. Plunge Into Free-Falling Fun On RipCord By iFLY

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go skydiving without actually jumping out of a plane? Now’s your chance to feel the rush. Discover new things to do from your cruise as you travel on Spectrum of the Seas such as experiencing firsthand the exhilarating thrill of freefalling with RipCord by iFLY, the only skydiving simulator at sea. Suit up, step into a translucent capsule and get ready to defy gravity. A blast of air will lift you up and buoy you above ground, recreating the sensation of weightlessness. A favorite among guests, this adrenaline-amping attraction is also kid-friendly — so bring the little ones along for some zero-gravity fun.

2. Snap And Soak Up Panoramic Views From The North Star

After your epic skydiving session, take to the skies for real in North Star, a viewing capsule that lifts you 300 feet above sea level. In addition to being one of the Quantum Class’s top-rated onboard activities, North Star also holds the Guinness World Record as the tallest viewing deck on a cruise ship. A gentle ride in this engineering marvel yields 360-degree views of the sea and the surrounding sights. It’s also completely free. Try riding up during different times of the day — sunset is especially magical — and make sure you have a camera ready to snap some dazzling selfies.

3. Put Your Cruise Vacation In Overdrive On The Bumper Car Track

If you’re ready for some more thrills, head to SeaPlex®, the largest indoor activity space at sea. This sprawling adventure zone onboard Spectrum of the Seas is home to all kinds of great experiences, including a bumper car arena where it’s always rush hour. Settle in to your car, buckle up and put your pedal to the metal for a bouncing, banging, bumping good time. This complimentary onboard activity is open to riders of all ages that meet the 42-inch height requirement. 

4. Bounce Into A Virtual World In The Sky Pad

Now that you’ve conquered the bumper car track at SeaPlex, keep the thrills going strong with a visit to the Sky Pad — another top attraction onboard Spectrum of the Seas. This unique activity combines bungee bouncing with virtual reality to create a one-of-a-kind experience both kids and adults will love. Strap in to a bungee harness, put on a virtual reality headset, and choose from a series of adventures set in different virtual worlds — from a candy-coated wonderland to a dimension ruled by sound and music. Each challenge involves plenty of bouncing, so prepare to catch some serious air. Come back and try each one.

5. Dig Into Cruise Restaurant Cuisines From The Far East At Sichuan Red

By now you’ve probably worked up quite an appetite. You’ll be happy to know Royal Caribbean always exceeds foodie expectations with its onboard dining — and Spectrum of the Seas is home to a slew of world-class restaurants. One guest favorite is Sichuan Red, which spotlights Asian-inspired dishes like Chinese lettuce leaves wrapped around asparagus and pepper rings, tender steamed lobster tossed with garlicky rice noodles, hearty duck soup flavored with pickled radish and sea cucumber served with broccoli and tangy spring onions. If you’re dining with the whole family, opt for the Kao Yu simmer pot. A Sichuan Red classic, it’s loaded with veggies, tofu, and deep-fried fish in a spicy, aromatic broth.

6. Settle In For A Dazzling Show At Two70

What do art, technology, music, dance, and multimedia have in common? They all come together at Two70 — an innovative space that transforms throughout the day and night. Available only on Quantum Class ships like Spectrum of the Seas, it offers sweeping ocean views and plenty of room to kick back and relax during the day. Once the sun sets, it turns into a multimedia theater and lounge where guests can watch dazzling performances by acrobats, aerialists, and dancing robotic screens — all set to flashing strobe lights and the pulsing beat of music.

7. Order A Drink In Binary At Bionic Bar

After witnessing a state-of-the-art spectacular at Two70, raise a glass to innovation and adventure at Bionic Bar. A Royal Caribbean staple and a guest favorite onboard Spectrum of the Seas, this Insta-worthy cocktail spot is home to two robotic bartenders. Each is engineered and programmed to mix, muddle and stir up all kinds of tasty libations. You can order a classic cocktail or a signature creation from Bionic Bar’s menu, or enter your own special recipe into one of the bar’s iPads. No matter what you’re in the mood for, the next-gen mixologists at this high-tech haunt never disappoint.

8. Gear Up For Some Glow-In-The-Dark Laser Tag

Royal Caribbean was the first cruise line to introduce glow-in-the-dark laser tag, and you can experience it onboard Spectrum of the Seas. Suit up with your friends and family and prepare to go head to head in an epic intergalactic face-off. Your mission: win the Battle for Planet Z℠, the last viable haven for light years around. You’ll be assigned a team — the remnants of a robot civilization or an alien scouting party. You’ll then have to work with your teammates to score points on the glow-in-dark battlefield in order to claim dominion over Planet Z. Playing is free for cruise ship guests — just make sure you reserve your slot through the Cruise Planner app or onboard at the box office. 

9. Rock Out At The Music Hall With Live Onboard Entertainment

You’ll find plenty of great options to live it up after dark onboard Spectrum of the Seas, including sing-along piano ballads at the iconic Schooner Bar and karaoke at Star Moment. That said, Music Hall is hands-down the best spot to get in the groove. This sprawling, multi-level concert space hosts some of the best cover bands playing everything from classic rock to disco and swing. There’s ample space to kick back and rest your feet when you aren’t showing off your moves on the dance floor — all with prime views of the stage. Plus a bar serving up beer, wine, and delicious cocktails for when you need to rehydrate.
