Do you dream of crystal clear waters, palm trees swaying in the light sea breeze, powder white sand between your toes, and tropical sunshine warming your face? This does not have to be a dream — Caribbean cruises have never been more affordable. Royal Caribbean has some of the best ships in the Caribbean and is offering amazing value for later on this year.
Royal Caribbean sails to more than 260 amazing destinations around the world. From Barcelona to Barbados, Australia to Alaska, the world is your oyster. The company has 26 incredible ships, all with unique features and itineraries. The ships offer a huge assortment of amazing restaurants and cafes that cater for every taste. It even has the first Jamie Oliver restaurant at sea on board the Anthem of the Seas. There is world class entertainment including award winning West End shows, and live action performances that will blow your mind.
Shoot down the zip line, stroll through Central Park or down the boardwalk, and be dazzled at the Aqua Theatre. Catch a wave on the Flow Rider surf simulator, rock-climb your way to an amazing view, play a round of mini golf or ice skate in the middle of the ocean. If you prefer to kick back and relax, you can chose from a wide range of facials, beauty treatments, and wellness programmes in the onboard spa.
Cruising is a great holiday for all the family. Dedicated zones and activities will keep children and teens happy for hours, and there is splashing good fun in the sun at the H20 Zone. The DreamWorks Experience promises favourite characters, colourful parades, and stunning 3D movies.
In May, Royal Caribbean opens Perfect Day CocoCay, a private island in the Bahamas which will feature the tallest waterslide in North America, Daredevil’s Peak; the largest wave pool in the Caribbean, Thrill Waterpark, where visitors can swim up bars and over water cabanas.
If you want to stay closer to home, sail on Brilliance of the Seas from Barcelona in September from €1,099pp visiting Nice, Portofino, Florence/Pisa, Rome, and the Amalfi coast.
