Cruise guides & features

When it comes to daytime and evening entertainment during your cruise, Royal Caribbean has some of the best in the industry. Jam-packed with activities from sunrise until sunset, there's something to suit everyone on whichever ship you choose.

Daytime Entertainment

When you're not on memorable shore excursions at the incredible destinations you get to visit during your cruise, your time spent on the ship can be just as special. With so much to see and do on each vessel, guests are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to onboard entertainment.

During any cruise, the pool deck is often one of the most popular spots, and with Royal Caribbean this is no different. Each ship has large pools where guests can either jump in and enjoy the refreshing waters or hang back on the side and lay back on one of the many sun loungers. Meanwhile, younger kids can enjoy the splash park, while the waterpark is also a big hit amongst anyone looking for a bit of a thrill. For those guests that do like to stay active during their cruise, there are plenty of activities to choose from. Facilities do vary across ships, however here are some of Royal Caribbean's most popular features:

  • Flowrider surf simulator
  • Ripcord by Ifly skydiving
  • Zipline
  • Rock-climbing wall
  • Bumper Cars
  • Laser Tag
  • Escape Room
  • SkyPad trampolines with VR goggles
  • Ice-skating rink
  • Gym
  • Sports courts

Alternatively, for those moments when you want to simply sit back and relax, there are more than enough ways to do just this. Boasting bars and lounges throughout the ship, you're bound to find a quiet corner to take some time out (with a drink in hand if you want!), while there is lots to explore inside, including the impressive atrium and shops where you can pick up a holiday treat. However, if you want to take your relaxation to the next level, each ship has a luxurious spa where you can allow yourself a pampering session at the hands of experienced professionals.

Evening Entertainment

One evening falls, each Royal Caribbean ship lights up with entertainment. From laidback drinks at a bar to live shows or dancing until the early hours, there's a venue for everyone.

Live entertainment

If you love to watch live entertainment, Royal Caribbean is the cruise line for you. Head to the theatre for award-winning musical productions, such as Mamma Mia, as well as interactive game shows, acrobatic performances and more, while some ships even feature an impressive AquaTheater and ice-skating shows. In addition, across many of the bars and lounges, guests will be treated to live music and piano music, as well as the chance to try their hand at a little karaoke.

Bars and lounges

From lively spots with dance floors that will have you showing off your best moves to English-style pubs and more relaxed lounge areas, grab a drink and spend your night however you want during your cruise. Some of the fleet's most popular venues are:

  • Schooner Bar
  • Boleros
  • North Star Bar
  • Bionic Bar
  • English Pub
  • Playmakers Sports Bar

In addition, if you're looking for something a little different, why not try your luck at the casino? Complete with games tables and slot machines, this may just be your opportunity to hit the jackpot and win big.
