Royal Caribbean Family Cruises

If your family loves staying active, then a Royal Caribbean cruise is hard to beat. Their amazing fleet (nearly two dozen ships in total) comes loaded with an ever-growing and always innovative collection of features including the FlowRider® (which allows you to surf onboard your ship), bungee trampolines, ice-skating rinks, rock-climbing walls, and zip lines. Kids of all ages can meet and mingle with their favorite DreamWorks AnimationTM characters (meals, movies, and more with Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, and others aboard select vessels), and families can also take in hit Broadway musicals like Chicago and Hairspray while they're at sea (aboard Royal's groundbreaking Oasis-class ships).

There are three important factors (beyond budget, destination, and travel dates) for families to evaluate when considering a Royal Caribbean cruise: activities designed expressly for children, options reserved exclusively for adults, and mealtimes for the whole crew. Below, you'll find an overview of all three.
