Royal Caribbean has certainly smashed the myth that ‘cruising is boring’ out of the water. The ships in their fleet are not only some of the largest in the world (including the largest, Symphony of the Seas) but also some of the most exciting, jam-packed with an ever-growing list of attractions for the whole family to enjoy.
From first-at-sea experience that make you say “you can do that on a cruise ship?” to themed dining venues and neighbourhoods that make you forget you’re even at sea, you’ll never be stuck for something to do whilst on board. Royal Caribbean aim to make your cruise holiday feel extraordinary, allowing you to escape everyday life and enjoy those ‘wow’ moments.
Technology plays a big part in this too. Whether it’s the robotic bartenders in the Bionic Bar, the wristbands you wear to access your cabin and pay for drinks, or the innovative staging in the Two70 theatre space, boundaries are constantly being pushed and new ground always broken.
