If you're after a cruise holiday with a difference, look no further than Royal Caribbean International. You've seen them on TV with their fabulous onboard activities and beautiful destinations. The company has an innovative fleet of ships featuring some of the most boredom-busting activities you could imagine. There’s plenty of entertainment for little ones as well as grown-ups.
For example, Oasis of the Seas has been described as the "ultimate" cruise holiday ship--a vast floating village. It has seven 'neighborhoods' which each carry different themes, outdoor parks and green spaces, and a Dreamworks Experience to delight all ages. Hailed as the ship that revolutionized cruising, Oasis of the Seas is home to some of the most exciting sights and sounds you'll ever experience on a ship , including an AquaTheatre complete with acrobats, the first amphitheatre at sea.
Oasis has two FlowRider surf simulators, rock-climbing walls, a zip line that's a lofty 9-decks high, a full-sized basketball court, mini-golf and even its own ice skating rink.
Kids will love its high-octane sporting facilities, and on top of that, there are stacks of child-friendly activities. There's a Youth Zone, an unforgettable DreamWorks Experience featuring the chance to meet characters like Shrek and Kung Fu Panda, a 3D movie theatre and more. The ship's dedicated kids' teams organize daily activities for children of all ages, with clubs like Royal Babies, Royal Tots, a Nursery, teen lounge areas and teen discos.
A trip on Oasis of the Seas is an experience you won't soon forget.
