Kids will have a blast at our complimentary, award-winning Adventure Ocean® Youth Programme. Every member of our youth team holds a four-year degree in education, recreation or a related field and has extensive experience working with children. We separate kids and teens into age groups so that they can enjoy specialized programmes made to expand their imaginations, in interactive, multi-room spaces designed just for them. It’s an immensely fun, totally edu-taining adventure.

Whole Family
Babies & Toddlers
Whole Family

Parent Time. Kid Time. And Time Together.

Sure, our youth programme is award-winning, our teen hang-outs are incredible and Mum is going to be thrilled by the amenities at the spa. But even with special experiences catering to each family member, there’s still plenty for the whole family to enjoy together.

Family Events and Activities

No doubt about it – our ships are built for families. Get together for festivals, poolside games, physical challenges, karaoke nights, theme nights and more.

The DreamWorks Experience

Only on board Royal Caribbean, share complimentary moments with your favourite characters from Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar and other DreamWorks Animation films at character dining, shows, 3D films, photo opportunities and surprise appearances. On selected ships.

Shows for the Whole Family

Miles from the mainland, marvel at dancing, singing, costuming and special effects of original stage productions, aerial shows, the whimsical black-light magic of the ImagineOcean! puppet show, DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon Ice Show, DreamWorks’ Let Me Entertain You Aqua Show and more.

Adventurous Activities

Year after year, we’ve changed the cruise industry by unveiling new, complimentary features like the FlowRider® surf simulator, the rock-climbing wall, the ice-skating rink, carousels, zip lines and more incredible innovations – all included in the price of your cruise.

Babysitters at Sea

While parents enjoy the night out, our Sitters at Sea can entertain young cruisers (one year and older) right in your stateroom. They’ll bring along Fisher-Price toys and games and keep a log of the activities that your child participated in under their care. An hourly rate applies.


A Little Cool. A Little Chilled

Our teen programme isn’t just a structured set of classes or rules – these “almost adults” deserve a holiday all their own. So we give them the freedom they deserve, to join pre-planned events throughout the day or simply hang out in teen-only spaces – with Adventure Ocean staff that keep the good times coming.

Ages 12 to 14

Get active with rock climbing competitions, dodgeball and Dance Dance Revolution, then take it down a notch at BBQs and film nights. Plus, the chance to let your star shine with open-mic nights, talent shows and the Scratch DJ Academy.

Ages 15 to 17

Join new friends at theme nights, pool parties and teen dinners. Feeling the competitive spirit? Challenge on the karaoke stage, on the Wii or on the basketball court and see who takes home the glory.

Teen-Only Hang Outs

Whether you want to chill out or all-out dance, drop into the teen-only spaces where you can hang out until late. Start at the teen lounge, a laid-back hideaway and then amp up the energy at the teen-only nightclub.

Teen Spa

Our YSpa menu features services made just for teens, including the Acne Attack facial, the Beach Babe deep conditioning hair treatment, the Sole Mate pedicure and more.


Blips, bleeps, clangs and cheers. Play to win in a classic arcade atmosphere with timeless games like Pacman and table hockey, plus the latest – Guitar Hero, Fast and Furious Drift and more.

Pool and Sports Deck

Get active! Make a splash in the H2O Zone water park or race to the top of the rock wall, conquer a table tennis tournament, play a round on the mini-golf course and try basketball, the FlowRider® surf simulator and ice skating. Features vary from ship to ship – view your ship’s page for the activities offered.


Pirates, Scientists, Artists Ahoy!

On board, kids aren’t just kids. They’re scientists exploring the insect world, eye-patched pirates or the next great athlete to take the gold at the Wacky Olympics. With interactive programmes and activities designed just for their age group, Adventure Ocean gives kids the chance to discover a whole new side of themselves.

All children participating in Adventure Ocean activities are required to be 3 years of age, 100% toilet trained and nappy and pull-up free.

Aquanauts (Ages 3-5)

These little at-sea adventurers will enjoy the magic of Bubbling Potions, uncover the dinosaur-sized secrets of Jurassic Jr. and take over the ship with the Pirate Party Parade. Parents of three-year-olds can opt for pagers so that Adventure Ocean staff can stay in touch.

Barbie Premium Experience (Ages 4-11)

The Barbie Premium Experience, only on Royal Caribbean, brings aboard the fab-tastic style of the world’s most famous doll! Girls set sail on a Barbie dream cruise packed with fun and fashion. Meet new friends and make lifelong memories in true Barbie style!
