Royal Caribbean cruise ships offer the ultimate family vacation.  Here are a few reasons why families love sailing on Royal Caribbean.

Bringing the baby should never feel daunting. On Royal Caribbean, even their tiniest sailors get to take part in the fun. The Royal Babies program for ages 6-8 months offers interactive classes filled with enriching activities developed by childhood experts. And play areas like the fun-soaked Splash Pad on the soon to be amped Navigator of the Seas are perfect for memory making with tots.

Royal Caribbean has no shortage of thrills to keep the kids smiling. Gallons of fun are waiting to be had at the Splashaway Bay aqua parks with colorful slides, fountains, pools and more.

They’ll have a blast — literally — during glow-in-the-dark laser tag faceoffs in Battle for Planet Z. The Adventure Ocean Youth Program keeps kids 3-11 entertained day and night with imaginative science experiments, stage performances, themed parties and much more.

Thrill-hungry tweens and teens can get their fix with adrenaline-pumping activities like The Perfect Storm waterslides, Royal Escape Room challenges Rock Climbing Walls and the fan-favorite FlowRider surf simulator. Teens-only hot spots like the upcoming outdoor chill space, The Back Deck on Navigator of the Seas provide space to kick back and hang out before night-time parties in The Living Room.

Bring the whole family together over dinner and a whoa. Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver dishes out hearty family style Italian fare. At Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, everyone can score their gameday favorites.

And for something sweet, every candy under the sun awaits at Sugar Beach. Afterwards, take in the high diving feats of an AquaTheater spectacular, sensational ice skating stunts, or one of Broadway’s greatest hits.

The perfect family vacation isn’t a stretch of the imagination — it’s right onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. Adventure seekers of all ages can take on countless heart pumping thrills. The award-winning Adventure Ocean Youth Program and cutting edge spaces just for kids and teens grant everyone me-time. Flexible MyTime Dining puts dinner on your terms.
