Family Program

Only Royal Caribbean offers families a collection of complimentary first-at-sea experiences that challenge all limitations, along with signature favorites that delight all ages. 

When you compare what we offer with a land-based vacation, nothing else beats the wide variety of family-friendly activities, dining venues and incredible entertainment we offer – and it's all included in your cruise fare! Where else can you learn how to fly on the first sky-diving simulator at sea? Where else can you cruise with Shrek, the Penguins from Madagascar and other DreamWorks characters? And where else can you have fun doing as much or as little as you want, without having to constantly pack and unpack, or dealing with never-ending lines to attractions? 

It's all included in your cruise vacation, and it's only on Royal Caribbean. Do it all or do nothing at all. 
 

Family Events And Activities

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

The DreamWorks Experience

Royal Caribbean is always looking to the future and exploring new ways to exceed our guests' expectations. We've been conducting extensive research to better understand and anticipate what matters most to the families of today — and tomorrow. And in 2019, we're looking forward to delivering brand new experiences for families, kids and teens. 

 
What began with new family features like glow-in-the-dark laser tag and the Sky Pad VR bungee trampoline experience on Mariner of the Seas and Independence of the Seas will continue to evolve as Navigator of the Seas is amplified in March 2019. And we're taking our family flagships to a whole new level when Oasis of the Seas gets amplified later in the year. 
 
As we shift focus toward these new possibilities, the 9 ships that offer DreamWorks moments will no longer feature the program as of April 2019 sailings. We'll continue to offer countless ways for families to make unforgettable memories onboard. Including our complimentary, award-winning Adventure Ocean youth program with expansive facilities designed for each age group, plus teen programming in their own dedicated spaces. Family-friendly thrills, like record-breaking water slides, FlowRider surf simulators, Splashaway Bay aqua parks, Royal Escape Rooms and more. Parades and shows across stage, ice, water and air. Plus the ultimate family vacation destination, Perfect Day at CocoCay, debuting May 2019.
