Royal Caribbean is Your Ticket to Escaping Winter

Nothing expels the dreariness of winter quite like a quick getaway to somewhere tropical. With the right cruise vacation, you can have it all: high-energy activities, quality family time and delightful date nights with your better half. Here’s all that you can expect from a Caribbean cruise on board a Royal Caribbean® ship.

Thrilling Activities

Packing your swimsuit is an absolute must: Crystal-clear waters, immaculately soft sand beaches and vibrant coral reefs are prolific in the Caribbean. After all, it’s not like you can dive into that enchantingly blue water for a close-up view of marine life while wearing your Sunday best! On board your ship, the excitement is just as palatable. Make the most of your family time with thrilling activities for all ages: hang 10 on the surfing simulator, race down waterslides or practice cannonballs. Away from the water, get your game face on with a friendly game of mini-golf or glow-in-the-dark laser tag, or try bouncing into another world with a virtual reality bungee trampoline experience.

Quality Family Time

While all the onboard amenities and stunning destinations are undoubtedly nice, the best feature of a cruise might just be the quality time you’ll get with your family. Family bonding hits a whole new level when you and your crew team up to take on challenges like a 40-foot rock wall or an escape room puzzle. Family meals are a breeze when menus can guarantee that even the pickiest eaters can order what they like. Poolside movie nights prove to be a pivotal memory in the making. Parents can treat themselves to some adult time thanks to onboard child care and teen clubs — toast with a pint in an English pub, soak in an adults-only hot tub or enjoy a proper date night with a gourmet dinner of Tuscan-inspired cuisine.

Quick Getaways

As enticing as the sunny Caribbean might be to those suffering through a dreary cold winter, an understandable hang-up is time — it can be hard to get a week away from work and school! Never fear: For those short on time, a short sailing is the easy solution. Three or 4-night sailings are the best of both worlds, as you can easily pack a week’s worth of adventures into the time frame and be back home before your inbox fills up. And convenient port cities like Los Angeles, Galveston and Miami mean your tropical cruise is potentially only a short drive from home.

At Royal Caribbean’s award-winning private island in the Bahamas, the day is truly your oyster. Switching between adrenaline-packed antics and luxurious relaxation is as easy as a leisurely stroll on a tropical island. Chill out with a tropical drink at a swim-up bar, take off down one of the tallest waterslides in North America and dive into the largest freshwater pool in the Bahamas. The day is whatever you and your family want to make it.
