Your Family Vacation Upgrade

Do you find yourself searching "what to do" near me? On Royal Caribbean the adrenaline rush is right outside your door. For family fun and grown-up thrills, Royal Caribbean makes it easy to travel as a group with new experiences you can only find on board, waiting around every corner. 

Cruising with Royal Caribbean makes activities for the family seamless. With the award-winning Adventure Ocean® youth program, kids and teens will have a blast— plus parents can get a little time of their own. The hardest part is deciding where to start.

Now Boarding for Adventure: Flowrider

The surf's always up on the 40-foot-long FlowRider® surf simulator. Grab your board and get ready, 30,000 gallons of rushing awesome are headed your way. Carve like a pro — or just try to stay upright — while friends cheer you on from the stadium seating.

Category 6 Waterpark 

That's right, the largest waterpark at sea has six record-breaking slides. 

Brace yourself for Category 6, the largest waterpark at sea, with six record-breaking slides. Roaring thunder means the Frightening Bolt is close — and this drop waterslide is the tallest at sea. Once your stomach lurches, it’s too late. You’re caught in the Pressure Drop℠, the first open freefall waterslide at sea. And if you’re still determined to charge in headfirst, grab a friend and take on the first mat racing duo ever to sail, Storm Chasers℠. Or gather your whole crew — and your courage — for Hurricane Hunter℠ and Storm Surge℠, doubling up the firsts with not one but two new raft slides you can ride with the whole family.

Crown's Edge

Do you dare step to the edge of bravery? Only on Icon of the Seas℠ will you encounter the Crown’s Edge — a fear-inducing challenge that’s part skywalk, part ropes course, part thrill ride and an all-out test of your courage. Strap in and step onto the walkway. Dare to look down at the crashing waves below — but keep moving. Because when you least expect it, the floor beneath your feet could collapse and leave you dangling high over the ocean. When the moment of truth comes, only the courageous will conquer.


Gravity Defying Fun: Ripcord by iFly

The wind in your face, no ground beneath your feet and the adrenaline pumping as you float weightless in the air — there’s no rush in the world like skydiving. On the RipCord® by iFLY® simulator you can feel the freedom of freefall without even leaving the deck. Time to let your spirit soar.

Featured Itinerary: Southern European Heaven

This 14-day voyage on Odyssey of the Seas can make those European travel dreams come true. Those two weeks will fly by as you start in Rome and visit 5 different cities in 5 days. You'll disembark on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean in Cape Liberty (New York). If you love transatlantic sightseeing this cruise is made for you!

Featured Itinerary: An Island Fantasy

Get ready for the Perfect Day in the Bahamas. With only 3 days at sea, a beautiful day in Orlando, Florida and a day in dreamland CocoCay, Bahamas- this is the best getaway trip if your days off are limited. Anthem of the Seas and your next vacation awaits! 

Both Odyssey of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas have thrilling activities like iFly and others for fun as endless as the ocean views. 

Time to Chill

Save room for some extra splash. Pick from seven different pools, plus nine whirlpools to satisfy any mood you're in. Or cool off with refreshing cocktails at The Lime and Coconut® bar spanning multiple levels of chill beach vibes.
