A Vacation the Whole Family Can Enjoy

Winner Top Cruise Line for Families in 2013

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. Our unique approach to vacations resulted in recognition by Travel + Leisure readers as one of the world’s best vacation options for families in 2013.

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 skydiving 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. Welcome to Destination WOW.
