The perfect family vacation isn’t a stretch of the imagination — it’s right onboard every Royal Caribbean ship.

If you’re looking for the world’s best family vacation, you’ve come to the right ship. With Royal Caribbean, you’ll discover that each day brings something new to do, see and explore, from the towering heights of the North Star® observation deck to the FlowRider® surf simulators and glow-in-the-dark laser tag. And with incredible voyages to Alaska, the Caribbean, and so many more, you’ll never run out of things to explore. Whatever family adventure you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.

10. Catch a wave on the FlowRider surf simulator

The surf’s always up on the 40-foot-long FlowRider surf simulator. Grab your board and get ready, 30,000 gallons of rushing awesome are headed your way. Carve like a pro — or just try to stay upright — while your family cheers you on from the stadium seating.

9. Slide into fun with The Perfect Storm water slides

Only the bravest kids and parents can tackle the roaring currents of The Perfect Storm water slides, but with your family rooting for you, there’s nothing you can’t do. Race head to head to see who’s the fastest, and feel the rush of water send you splashing into the pool below.

8. Jump for joy at the Sky Pad® VR Trampoline

Hop into the Sky Pad for an out-of-this-world bungee trampoline experience. Strap in, put on your virtual reality headset and transport the whole family to another time, place, or planet. Whether you’re smashing candies in a sugar-coated world or traveling light years into the future, your virtual adventure will launch you high into the stratosphere and let your imagination soar.

7. Battle it out in Glow-in-the-Dark Laser Tag

Friendly family competition has never been more fun. Challenge the kids to a glow-in-the-dark laser tag faceoff to see who reigns supreme, and go head-to-head in amazing new worlds, like the endless winter night in Clash for the Crystal City. Whether you’re on Team Yeti or Team Snowshifter, you’re all bound to have the time of your lives, especially on an Alaska cruise full of icy adventures!

6. Unwind in your Ultimate Family Suite

Stay in the two-story Ultimate Family Suite and enjoy plenty of space to roam and relax after a day of fun, along with a separate master bedroom. Host family movie nights in your private 3D cinema, battle it out in an air hockey tournament, and let the kids imagine their own adventures on the in-suite slide.

5. Elevate your vacation on the North Star Viewing Deck

North Star elevates you high above the ship for unrivaled 360-degree views of the world as you wander. Just step into the observation capsule — winner of the Guinness World Record for tallest viewing deck on a cruise ship — and take in the view. On cruises through Alaska, you can witness majestic mountain peaks, breathtaking bays, and gorgeous glaciers from over 300 feet above sea level!

4. Defy gravity on the first skydiving simulator at sea

The wind in your face, no ground beneath your feet and the adrenaline pumping as you float weightless in the air — there’s no rush in the world like skydiving. On the RipCord® by iFLY® simulator, the whole family can feel the freedom of freefall without even leaving the deck.

3. Learn and play in the Adventure Ocean® Youth Program

With the Adventure Ocean youth programs, not only will your kids’ time on board be fun, it will be educational too! Aquanauts (ages 3-5 years) will conduct science experiments, Explorers (ages 6-8 years) can create their own masterpieces, and Voyagers (ages 9-11 years) will have a blast exploring a range of fun activities.

2. Explore the wilderness together on an Alaskan adventure

Beyond the incredible activities on board, Royal Caribbean can also take you and your family to jaw-dropping destinations all over the world. Experience the daunting power of the largest tidewater glacier in North America when you visit Hubbard Glacier in Alaska, and spot all kinds of fascinating flora and fauna on wilderness excursions together.

1. Dive into fun at Perfect Day at CocoCay

If there’s one place to go for the perfect family vacation, it’s Perfect Day at CocoCay. Enjoy gallons of fun at Splashaway BaySM, sit back and relax at Oasis Lagoon®, or tackle the tallest waterslide in North America at Thrill Waterpark – your perfect day is totally up to you.
