Throughout, guests sail on exciting itineraries to some of the world’s most popular destinations and enjoy Royal Caribbean’s friendly and engaging service.

Activities

The largest indoor activity space at sea is playing on a whole new level. A reimagined upper deck introduces the largest SeaPlex® ever, with bolder ways to play. Like the most interactive arcade ever to set sail, with everything from classics like skeeball to the first fully immersive, free-roaming 4D virtual reality experience at sea, Virtual Adventure Zone. This all-new, immersive gaming experience is unlike anything in this world —or any other — allowing you to explore and physically interact with the virtual environment around you to complete your mission and save all of existence. On the lower deck, buckle up for bold on the only bumper cars at sea. Or face off in the latest glow-in-the-dark laser tag battle, Clash for the Crystal City. And outside the SeaPlex, don’t miss fan favorites like surfing on the FlowRider® and skydiving in the RipCord® by iFLY®.

Kick back with island vibes set to max at the reimagined pool deck. Soak up the sun with two resort-style pools and plenty of shady casitas, and hammocks primed for sweet ocean breezes. Plus, the two-story bar The Lime and Coconut®, poolside bites from El Loco FreshSM and ambience that overflows with tropical flavor. For the ultimate pool day upgrade, reserve a casita with everything you’ll need — including dedicated service so you can enjoy your favorite poolside drinks, brought to you with the touch of a button.

For the entertainment seekers don’t miss a place that can take you anyplace — Two70®. By night, the lights go down in this open area panoramic living room, where windows become screens, and aerialists, robots and more take you on a journey like no other. Be sure to check out Music Hall, the premier place for live music lovers where the industry’s best cover bands rock like the real thing.
