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
- 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.
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
- Rock-climbing wall
- Bumper Cars
- Laser Tag
- Escape Room
- SkyPad trampolines with VR goggles
- Ice-skating rink
- 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.

Customer reviews for Royal Caribbean
First time on my own since losing my husband so I was a bit nervous but I need not of worried
It was great to have to think of nothing but rest. The children had much to do and and did not need to be persuaded. They usually get bored in a holiday more than 4 days but this time, no one complained. The service staff tidying up the room twice a day was amazing. The food was delicious and even when you missed a meal, it was not a problem because there was always food available anytime we needed it. The children particularly enjoyed having their midnight Pizza snacks :)
Lovely ships with lots to do. It was school holidays so very busy. The only problem we found was a sea day all the sun loungers were taken by 7 am in the Morning. The staff did go round starting to take towels off, which was good. But I had to sit on my own while my mum sat in a different area, which was not good especially as my mum is disabled. Food good. Staff really nice. Entertainment was good ok but would of liked to see more headliner shows
Only downside was the sunbed issues around pool where RCL state no-one is supposed to reserve a bed but there were people reserving for hour's yet no one from RCL implemented the rule of not used then towels will be removed.

Royal Caribbean have a fairly relaxed dress code, with only a few rules enforced. These include
- 1. Guests must always wear shoes in all venues
- 2. Swimwear can be worn on the pool decks only
- 3. Tank/strappy tops are not allowed in the main restaurants or speciality restaurants.
Royal Caribbean generally host at least one formal night per cruise, but there could be up to three depending on the length of your sailing. Anyone who loves this classic cruise tradition is welcome to embrace it by wearing formal dress in The Grande, a 1920s-themed venue on the Quantum Class ships.
In the main restaurant, kids will be able to enjoy classic favourites such as pizza, grilled chicken and spaghetti. The buffet also provides a wide range of choices that even the fussiest eaters will love.
Theme nights occasionally take place onboard Royal Caribbean ships. These could be masquerade balls, a 70's night, or of course holidays such as Christmas and Easter. Guests are welcome to get as involved as they wish during these events.
A daily newsletter known as "The Cruise Compass" is delivered to each cabin. This details the events and activities happening on the following day - covering everything from show times and presentations to store discounts and dining options.
