Royal Caribbean International

Royal Caribbean International Overview

With a fleet that includes some of the largest cruise ships in the world and a history of innovation, Royal Caribbean is one of the biggest and best cruise lines in the world. Their emphasis on technology, entertainment, sports, and the “wow factor” are just a few of the reasons why we love them! 

Despite its name, Royal Caribbean International offers voyages around the globe including sailings to 6 continents including the Caribbean, Alaska, Mexico, Australia, South America, Europe, and Asia. Their cruises include a wide variety of sports, activities, and entertainment options for passengers of all ages and are an excellent choice for families. 

From more intimate mid-sized cruise ships to the record-breaking Oasis class, Royal Caribbean’s fleet contains a wide range of ship sizes. And even their smaller cruises offer some of the latest features as the newest ships. This is especially true for ships that have undergone their “Amplification” program. Under this program, older ships receive a massive upgrade that includes everything from new pools and activities, to complete overhauls.

Pros of a Royal Caribbean International Cruise

  • Impressive entertainment choices including high-dive and synchronized swimming shows aboard Oasis and Allure, parades, and more
  • Some of the best sports activities you will find on a cruise ship include rock climbing, surf simulators, zip-lining, boxing, sky-diving simulators, and fitness classes
  • Most of the onboard activities are included in the base fare, so you won’t need to worry about added expenses if your kids want to try rock climbing or surfing.
  • A variety of ship sizes include several of the world’s largest cruise ships and a large number of intimate midsized ships

Cons of a Royal Caribbean International Cruise

  • If you are looking to cruise at a discount, Royal Caribbean may not be the right choice for you. With all of the premium onboard activities and entertainment options included in the base fare, their prices are higher than Carnival or MSC Cruises
  • Cruisers looking for a quiet and more intimate vacation might not enjoy sailing on the large ships that Royal Caribbean offers. Even their smallest ships can have over 2000 passengers.
  • They push to sell. Get ready for sales pitches on jewelry, photos, DVDs, and just about anything and everything they have to offer.

Royal Caribbean is an excellent choice for families, sporty couples, and singles who want an exciting vacation full of thrills and activities.

Who It’s Not For
