Cruising has always been considered a luxury style of holiday, and with an ever-evolving range of activity-rich liners and exotic destinations on offer, today’s cruise holidays really are fit for a king.
Take Royal Caribbean cruises for instance. This innovative cruise operator has taken the luxury cruise model and shaken it up – adding new dimensions to onboard facilities, entertainment and lifestyle to create a holiday experience that appeals to a much wider range of holidaymakers – including cruise first-timers, young couples and families. Royal Caribbean cruises don’t just offer a high standard of dining, pools and evening entertainment, they go one better and introduce multiple variations – along with plenty of surprises.
With Royal Caribbean cruises, holidaymakers can expect to try activities not previously associated with cruise ships, such as rock climbing and ice skating. Many RCI vessels have surfing simulators out on the open deck, while others have inline skating rinks, basketball courts, mini golf courses and even zip wires that span the height of several decks.
In terms of dining, this is where Royal Caribbean really shows off its true colours. It appeals to younger guests with informal eateries serving up homely classics and American cuisine like burgers and fries, not to mention great ideas like Ben & Jerry’s ice cream parlours. For couples and those who want to try something new, many restaurants use ingredients and ideas from the day’s port of call to whip up local specialities, and there are various restaurants taking inspiration from cultures all over the world.
With dining options fit for a king, spectacular destinations and innovative onboard facilities to boot, it’s no wonder Royal Caribbean cruises are considered by many to be the jewel in the cruise holiday crown.
