It has redefined cruising with exciting onboard activities such as rock-climbing walls, ice-skating rinks, zip lines, bumper cars, the signature FlowRider surf simulator and exclusive skydiving thrills of RipCord by iFLY. Royal Caribbean was the first to bring the best of Broadway to the high seas, staging full-length productions of hit musicals like MAMMA MIA!, Cats and We Will Rock You. The world-class entertainment program includes dazzling only-on-Royal stage, ice, aerial, dive and multimedia shows, plus dance clubs, bars and lounges that never charge a cover. The newest ships in the fleet - Oasis Class and Quantum Class - are equipped with advanced technology, with the fastest Internet at sea, and the widest variety of accommodations, from single rooms with a balcony, to family-connected staterooms and luxurious two-story lofts.

The Royal Amplified program is set to reveal multimillion-dollar upgrades, including Sky Pad, Battle for Planet Z, a glow-in-the-dark laser tag experience; The Perfect Storm trio of waterslides and a new Escape Room: The Observatorium challenge, where competitors can solve a series of high-tech riddles to unravel a mystery. Not to mention the addition of new dining venues, from Fish and Ships - a seaside seafood spot with freshly battered fish and chips and other guest favorites - to Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade, Izumi Hibachi and Sushi and Sugar Beach.
