More Dining Options on Oasis
Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas underwent a substantial overhaul in
late 2014. The purpose of the dry dock was to bring the world's largest cruise ship up to date with the latest dining and technology innovations. The biggest of these is a bevy of restaurants -- both free and for-fee.
introduces bold new culinary concepts, more choice and total
flexibility. New dining experiences encompass the entire landscape of unique dining venues. The new philosophy is simple: give our guests more options, more flexibility, more control over their dining experience.
Special Features and Quiet
Although it's been more than five years since Oasis
launched, the ship has aged well, and its original
industry-changing design touches -- such as the first-ever
Boardwalk and Central Park at sea, which uniquely occupy space
that's carved out of the middle of the ship -- are still
Entertainment Place, a hub for night owls, offers ice
skating and disco, comedy and jazz, and a three-tiered theater that
features "Cats," the multi-Tony Award-winning Broadway show.
Particularly dazzling is the ship's AquaTheater, with its "deepest
pool at sea," which serves as a platform for performers such as
divers and synchronized swimmers.
Royal Promenade can get congested during parades, and you could
wait a while for an elevator. But there are plenty of places to get
away from fellow passengers -- such as the wrap-around promenade on
Deck 5, and the Central Park, which is quiet most of the time.
There also are a couple of open-to-all balconies overlooking the
AquaTheater (one is on Deck 11, starboard); there's another
off-beat spot, all the way forward and above the solarium, which
most people miss.
ship is large, but it doesn't feel as massive as you'd expect, and
that's a credit to its design. The neighborhood concept really does
work -- Central Park with its thousands of living plants is
wonderful and there are reasons to be there during the day: Park
Cafe for freshly made salads, sandwiches and breakfast fare; fun
tours of art and foliage; and lots of comfortable chairs in which
to read; and during the night: noshing at the outdoor tables at
Vintages, the wine bar, and Giovanni's, the ship's Italian
restaurant. After dinner, the Entertainment Zone is a magnet. On
sunny days, congregating on the pool deck is a typical activity --
and while it can be crowded, you can always find a lounge
Oasis had its Internet service upgraded as part of Royal's partnership with Voom, which offers passengers Satellite Internet, with speeds comparable to those available on shore. Voom, the fastest internet at sea– and it's now available on the entire fleet.
This is instantly streaming, sharing on the fly, high speed internet. Enjoy all your favorite movies and shows on Netflix, and stream your favorite playlist on Spotify.

families, Oasis of the Seas is so large that walkie-talkie devices
-- long a popular way for passengers to stay in-touch onboard --
don't always work properly. As a result, Royal Caribbean has
introduced its new Royal Connect "Wow Phone" device. These are
iPhones that lack outside calling or texting capabilities. For
$17.50 per device, per week, you'll have deck plans and the Cruise
Compass right at your fingertips, as well as a way for your kids to
reach you onboard. They can dial the phone's number from any house
phone on the ship. If you give one to your child, he or she can be
tracked at all times.
Oasis of the Seas Gratuity
Caribbean passengers are charged $12.95 per person, per day ($15.95
for suite guests). Gratuities are prepaid. Passengers can modify or
remove gratuities by visiting the guest services desk while
onboard. A 15 percent gratuity is automatically added to bar
Oasis of the
Seas Public Areas
of the Seas was the first to introduce fascinating public areas
that are totally new to cruise travel.
Boardwalk is an area for the entire family to enjoy together. The
elements of the Boardwalk are a dynamic way to engage families in
classic fun with a colorful original carousel as well as eateries,
retail outlets and carnival games. Signature elements of the
Boardwalk include the AquaTheater, a remarkable outdoor venue at
the stern of Oasis of the Seas with a backdrop of the ocean across
the horizon, the Sea Carousel, a one-of-a-kind and first-ever at
sea carousel, the centerpiece of Boardwalk, and a zip line, a
thrilling new feature suspended nine decks above
Between the colorful lights, the merry-go-round music and
the smell of the freshly minted waffle cones, the Boardwalk
absolutely feels like the Jersey Shore or Coney Island. It's
charming, for sure: Ride the carousel with each horse, cheetah,
etc. hand-carved out of wood and hand-painted. The ride is free (no
age restriction, though there is a height requirement if you want
to ride alone) and lasts two minutes with old-fashioned calliope
music creating the soundtrack as you spin.
There are also fun shops here,
including a candy store, and an old-timey photo booth where you can
print your own color or black and white snapshots in seconds ($5
for 6). A favorite Boardwalk diversion is the Pets at Sea shop,
Oasis' answer to the "Build a Bear" chain that's popular on land.
Pick the "skin" of the pet you want (rabbits, penguins, etc.) and
staffers help you stuff it by attaching it to one of two big
contraptions that look like oversized gum ball machines -- but
instead of gum balls, there's stuffing flying around inside. The
stuffing fills and puffs out the pet, along with a fabric heart
you've placed inside. All manner of outfits, including a captain's uniform that
looks fabulous on a stuffed bear, are for sale. The pet alone is
$19.99; outfits are $12.99. If you buy both together, it's $29.99.
Your pet leaves the shop in a cardboard box with a precut hole so
he or she can poke out a furry head and see the sights.
glass-arched skylights, the Crystal Canopies, form a sculptured
roof that looks up into Central Park and the sky beyond. Elements
of the Royal Promenade include: Rising Tide Bar, Globe and Atlas
Pub, Schooner Bar, Retail shops, Karaoke Bar, Boleros Latin Club,
Photo Gallery, Vintages, Chops Grille, Pizzeria, Canopy Bar and
more. The Royal Promenade also serves as the entry point for all
guests embarking on Oasis of the Seas, rather than the traditional
Royal Promenade is noticeably wider and lighter than on other ships
-- one aspect of the ship's new design is the skylights that let
daylight in. The shops offer duty free products and Oasis souvenirs
-- but there are a couple of new options. Willow, a shop geared to
the 30-plus set, has lovely casual clothing (designers ranging from
Eileen Fisher to Spirit), jewelry, and accessories. There's a
minimally stocked camera shop. Above it is a vast photo
its 12,175 plants and 56 trees, Central Park offers a lovely
respite from the buoyant energy that otherwise permeates Oasis of
the Seas. A peaceful sanctuary from the bustle of ship activities,
Central Park provides quietude among the magnificent gardens and
innovative architectural and sculptural elements.
flora and fauna ranges from an herb garden to towering (well,
they'll be lofty someday) trees that offer a soft canopy. You may
be onboard in an inner-facing space, but Central Park is open to
the sky and, interestingly, through use of wind-controlling
technology, there's a lovely breeze blowing through the area.
Beyond the aforementioned restaurants, there are lots of peaceful
nooks for simply curling up with a good book. On the retail therapy
side of things, Central Park has the first Coach store at sea and a

are so many dining options on Oasis that you could eat somewhere
different for every meal -- three times a day, for an entire week
-- and literally not repeat a venue.
Main Dining Room
Main Dining Room, aft of Entertainment Place, features décor
inspired by the 1920s French Art Deco movement, Emile Ruhlmann
whose work featured elegant lighting, simple shapes and beautiful
wood. The striking centre piece of the dining room is Laurie
Kaplowitz's masterpiece titled 'Genesis' standing at nearly 27 feet
is where our Cruise into Spirit Seminar-at-Sea dining will take
place for dinner in our designated area.
Spanning from decks 3 to 5, the dining room opens for
breakfast, lunch and dinner with a variety of different seating
7:00 am to 9:00 am, deck 3 opens for both express and à la carte
breakfast with a choice of food either from the buffet or ordered
off the menu. Selections are similar to those in Windjammers cafe
ranging from sausages, bacon and eggs cooked in numerous ways to
French toast, cereals, pastries, breads and fresh fruit.
served from 12:30 pm to 2: 00 pm and again on deck 3, features a
Brasserie 30 menu (designed to enable guests complete their meal in
30 minutes) and includes a “Tutti” salad bar with everything from
lettuce, tomatoes, eggs, sweetcorn and grated carrots to meats,
prawns, tuna, cheeses and breads.
At night the menu changes daily offering guests something different to choose from every day. Each menu has a different name which influences the dishes served and includes Saffron, Mojo, Pimiento, Shitake, Jasmine, Basil and Pomodoro. The menu also features always available items (such as salmon, chicken, steak and pasta) along with Chef's inspiration. The daily changing options consist of starters, main courses and desserts. Vegetarian, gluten free, lactose free and "Vitality" healthy options are indicated beside the menu choices.
Windjammer Marketplace Buffet
Deck 16, the Windjammer Marketplace is the free Oasis buffet,
offering the utmost flexibility for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It
features multiple islands, each serving a variety of casual buffet
fare. Guests can enjoy expanded selections, with theme dinners
Izumi Hibachi and Sushi
Hibachi and Sushi Japanese cuisine offers a full teppanyaki menu as
well as fresh and flavorful sushi rolls and sashimi. is a for-fee
restaurant on Deck 4. Enjoy the pure and invigorating flavours of
Japan with sushi rolls, sashimi, Hot Rock (Ishiyaki) Plates or
sukiyaki. This Asian cuisine restaurant features a sushi bar and
hot rock cooking, as well as other Asian fare. Open for lunch and
dinner; á la carte pricing. Royal Caribbean's Izumi is an exotic
Asian-inspired dining experience full of intense flavors, the
freshest ingredients and impeccable presentation.
Coastal Kitchen, on Deck 17, is only available to suite
and Pinnacle passengers: The high-ceilinged, glass-enclosed lounge
is decorated in neutral cream, beige and gray, which adds to the
sense of light and space in the room. It's a very relaxing spot
with great views and a nicely stocked bar. Exclusively for suite
guests, Coastal Kitchen fuses Mediterranean influences with the
unmatched riches of California's bountiful farmlands. Enjoy Pacific
Coast favorites like sea bass ceviche or Med-inspired tastes such
as fig and prosciutto flatbread, and pair them with an extensive
selection of vintages from the golden hills of Napa and
The Chef's Table is a brand-new concept for Royal Caribbean and is offered each night on the cruise. The trick is that only 14 passengers can be accommodated. The dinner starts with cocktails in the library and an introduction to other passengers. Then it's onto the meal in the upper level of the Concierge Lounge, with a fantastic view overlooking the AquaTheater and Boardwalk. There are five courses (this is a regular menu, not a tasting-style affair) and before each is served the chef comes out of the kitchen and explains the preparation. You can book it before the cruise by calling Royal Caribbean or reserve your spot online and choose between a couple of nights. Wine pairings (quite generous ones) are included in the fee, as are gratuities. Great service and food.
Dining in Oasis of the Seas Neighborhoods
There are plenty of Royal Caribbean dining choices in the Oasis of the Seas neighborhoods:
Dining in Royal Promenade, Deck 5
The Café Promenade serves up sugary pastries and coffees in the morning -- with small sandwiches available through the rest of the day. This popular café serves Seattle's Best Coffee, fruit shakes, pastries and sandwiches throughout the day and night. Open 24 hours; á la carte pricing.
Sorrento's Pizzeria (free slices and antipasti for lunch, dinner and late-night noshing) offers a create-your-own pizza option; passengers choose from an assemblage of ingredients (meats, cheeses, vegetables) that changes daily.
A Starbucks kiosk sells the ubiquitous company's standard hot drinks at the expected prices, and diehards can even use their Starbucks gold cards. The selection of edibles is abbreviated. You'll find red velvet pie, croissants and other sweets, but not the full menu of savory sandwiches typically available on land.
Dining on the Boardwalk: Deck 6
Get the family together for good old-fashioned hamburgers and fries at Johnny Rockets--complete with authentic 1950s décor, a menu filled with all-American favorites, and a jukebox at every table. While the standard burgers/fries/shakes fare for lunch and dinner is offered for $4.95 per person, on Oasis, Johnny Rockets is also a complimentary breakfast venue (its menu offers hot egg dishes and an incredibly decadent cheesy-potato combo).
Across from Johnny Rockets is Sabor Taqueria & Tequila Bar: a Mexican restaurant is alfresco on The Boardwalk -- making it well suited for a Caribbean sailing. It features a menu of authentic, modern and Mexican dishes including hand-made tableside guacamole. These dishes can be complemented by a curated beverage menu of tequilas, mezcal, and Mexican beers, as well as delicious sangrias and tableside-mixed margaritas. "Sabor": In Spanish, it means "flavor" but here on the Oasis class of ships, Sabor Taqueria & Tequila Bar is that and so much more. A feast—or shall we say fiesta—for the eyes. A vibrant dance across the plate and palate. And a long heritage of fresh, simple ingredients, reimagined in full bloom.
An ice cream parlor/cupcake shop, Cups and Scoops, features delicious sweet treats onboard. It has the most appetizing creative flavors and is never crowded. Try one of our signature cupcakes baked fresh daily, or enjoy a an a la carte scoop of Ben & Jerry's ice cream with your choice of toppings (try the fruity, refreshing mango flavor). The specialty cupcakes -- ranging from vanilla and chocolate to crazier flavors like bubblegum, key lime and root beer -- are delicious.
The 1950's styled ice cream venue displays classic sundaes and a variety of ice cream flavors and toppings to choose from and then mixed-to-order on a frozen slab. Enjoy sprinkles, smiles and some seriously sweet confections at the only cupcake and ice cream shop at sea. Each day gourmet cupcakes are meticulously crafted from scratch in sumptuous flavors, while classic homemade ice cream is offered in a variety of delicious flavors and is churned right on the ship. Open throughout the day.
Grilled sausages and franks are available at the Boardwalk Dog House. The Boardwalk Bar offers on-the-go snacks and a variety of prepackaged sandwiches, fruit and salads, for free. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Dining in Central Park: Deck 8
The tapas at Vintages, the ship's wine bar, are served all day (and into the wee hours) and offer a delicious, lighter fare (though not necessarily low-calorie) option. The tapas range from a simple bruschetta to more elaborate concoctions and from savory treats to sweet ones. Consider ordering a "tapas sampler" -- these combine various options and are quite cost-effective.
Royal Caribbean guests of all ages feast family-style on Italian fare at Giovanni's Table. A casual Italian trattoria with indoor and al fresco seating, Giovanni's Table offers rustic dishes with a contemporary flair, including toasted herb foccacia, freshly made pastas, pizzas, salads, Italian sandwiches, braised meat dishes and stews, all served family-style. Savor great Italian home cooking in this family-friendly restaurant specializing in the traditional dishes of Tuscany. With a fantastic, friendly, trattoria-style ambience, the menu is beautifully conceived. Giovanni's is open for lunch on sea days (and, uniquely in the cruise industry, on embarkation day as well -- so there's a lunch option for passengers who prefer to avoid the usual crowds at the buffet). It is one of the best values onboard. This Tuscan countryside-influenced trattoria is a more-accessible, casual Italian restaurant featuring both indoor and al fresco seating.
Chops Grille, the line's dinner-only steakhouse, is beautifully designed, and its sleekness wouldn't feel out of place in Manhattan. Steak and Seafood in an elegant atmosphere. Royal Caribbean's hallmark restaurant has been given a fresh twist with a revamped menu that brings contemporary flair to traditional steakhouse offerings. Featuring grade-A premium cuts of steak cooked to your specifications, plus fresh seafood, addictive side dishes and delectable signature desserts.
Experience farm-to-ship cuisine the genuine way, and only onboard Oasis-class ships. 150 Central Park features a six-course tasting menu created by James Beard Award-winning chef/restaurateur Michael Schwartz, using distinctive ingredients locally sourced and paired with an extensive wine tasting menu. The most exclusive dining venue on Oasis, 150 Central Park provides an intimate dining experience that combines leading-edge cuisine with modern design, creating a trendy upscale ambiance. The most sophisticated, attentive dining experience onboard, it's a perfectly intimate setting for a 6-8 course tasting menu with paired wines. 150 Central Park is the ship's showcase restaurant, with a tasting menu consisting of seven courses -- gnocchi with chanterelles, cauliflower panna cotta -- plus meal-ending cheese plates), ultimately it is a lovely experience. There's a wine pairing option and that works really well with the courses. Open for dinner.
The Park Café, which serves delicious hot Panini sandwiches and bagels for breakfast and custom-made salads and sandwiches throughout the day, is justifiably a huge hit. It is a casual-dining, walk-up gourmet market with something for everyone.
Dining in Pool & Sports Zone: Deck 15
A mini-version of the ship's buffet, offering fast foodstuffs, is located at the Wipe Out Café (complimentary all day, from breakfast to dinner). The casual self-service buffet offers a variety of options from pizza, hamburgers, sandwiches and fresh salads to quick snacks and desserts, for young cruisers on-the-go. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Brilliant sunlight by day, starlight canopy by night, the Solarium Bistro's brilliant food and atmosphere is equally perfect for a celebration or a cosy, romantic supper. Located in the Solarium, the contemporary bistro offers health-conscious dining for breakfast and lunch in a casual setting. At breakfast there are yogurts, granola, fruit and breakfast meats like the more healthful turkey sausage instead of the pork variety. Lunch features light fare, such as couscous, salads, fruit, yogurt and other healthy, tasty options. At night the bistro is transformed, via linen tablecloths and soft lighting, to a more upscale but still spa-oriented alternative restaurant, a romantic and intimate dining setting for specialty healthy-fare dinner and dancing under the stars.
Free Room Service
Still hungry? Room service is available around the clock, free most of the day (though a tip is welcomed). Egg dishes are available in the morning, along with the usual Continental fare (croissants, coffee, cereal). Throughout the day and into the evening passengers can choose between pizza, hot and cold sandwiches and salads.
Guests wanting to enjoy a meal in the comfort of their staterooms can choose from the complimentary breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, as well as the recently introduced Dine in Delights menu, which offers name-brand culinary options ranging from the Original Johnny Rockets hamburger to Ghirardelli Chocolate Cookies. Open 24 hours; á la carte pricing for Dine In Delights and $3.95 service charge for in-room deliveries between 12:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.
Oasis of the Seas Entertainment
World-class entertainment on Oasis of the Seas includes: Broadway's second longest running musical, CATS. Complimentary AquaTheater shows, ice shows and other live entertainment. A VIP Room at Casino Royale. Bars, lounges, and nightclubs that never have a cover, including live jazz club, karaoke bar, and comedy club. Parties and parades on the Royal Promenade.
Prohibition Party, a reservation-only 1920s-themed celebration on every fifth night in the Jazz on 4 lounge where guests 21 and older can do their favorite Jazz Age outfit and sip on alcoholic beverages for a cover charge of $35.
The Entertainment Zone on Deck 4 is home to Studio B ice rink for shows and free skate, the Opus three-deck theater (where performances of "Cats" take place), a comedy club (book reservations in advance; it's popular and the space is small) and a jazz bar with superb live music. Blaze, a one-story nightclub, is located down here as well.
Passengers will see the "Dreamworks Experience" throughout the ship, in the form of 3D movies in the main theater, high-energy character parades in the Royal Promenade, and special daytime shows at the AquaTheater.
On the Boardwalk Deck 6, all the way aft, you'll find the AquaTheater, an amphitheater-style outdoor space at the stern of the ship, where evening shows take place throughout the week. This is a don't-miss event! Reserve a spot, but there are also seats (and standing room) along the back.
There are two 18-meter dive boards and 20 performers dedicated to the space: six divers, four synchronized swimmers, six acrobats and four specialty divers. Another fun fact: There are nearly 2,000 nozzles on and above the stage for synchronized water shooting.
Your heart will be in your throat when the high divers leap off a platform that seemingly scrapes the sky and then slices into the water with barely a splash. Dancers, divers and acrobats pull off stunts against a backdrop of backlit fountains, big screens and the endless horizon of the sea.
The Opal Theater, Oasis of the Seas' state-of-the-art 1,380-seat main theater, features a thrust stage and proscenium extending into the audience space to create a more intimate and interactive environment.
In addition to nightly entertainment, the Opal Theater is used in the daytime for lectures, such as Port seminars, where you can learn about the history, special features, maps, and shopping at our port stops. We might also use this space for one or more of our "Cruise into Spirit" Seminar-at-Sea workshops.
Watch the Broadway spectacular CATS and other award-winning entertainment in this spectacular venue.
Comedy Live is the comedy club, where headline acts interact with the audience and provide engaging and customized performances each evening.
Studio B is the onboard ice skating rink and venue for a variety of themed events and shows. Some of our conference meetings will take place in this spacious theater, when the ice-skating rink is transformed with special flooring that covers the ice.
Suspended above the Globe and Atlas Pub, an unfurling bridge on hinged hydraulics creates a spectacular, surprise element for guests. Incorporated into the pub's facade, a giant copper globe "cracks open" as part of its unique construction and extend over the Royal Promenade as a bridge platform.
Many of Royal Caribbean's favorite bars and lounges are found in the Royal Promenade. The Schooner Bar is located on the upper level of the Royal Promenade. It's fun to sit in chairs that ring the promenade on formal night, and watch the world go by! The top-of-the-ship Viking Crown Lounge, which here provides a stunning view forward from its lofty perch on Deck 17, is gorgeous.
Follow the Latin beat and find yourself in Boleros, a nighttime hot spot where you can keep up with live music and cool down with a mojito or caipirinha. Bolero's jumps to a packed house every night, with terrific live music and lots of dancing.
Rising Tide is a unique bar, the first moving bar at sea that spans three decks and moves up and down, like an elevator, from the Promenade to Central Park Deck.
The On Air Club, located in the Royal Promenade, radiates energy day and night with television monitors featuring news, sporting events, and music. Club 20 is a high-energy late night dance club experience under the stars. It transforms the adults-only Solarium into an evening hot spot. Jazz on 4 is an intimate lounge inspired by prohibition-era Chicago, filled with live jazz and blues. Blaze is a quintessential nightclub experience where guests can dance the night away to pulsating music in a hip and trendy atmosphere.
Oasis of the Seas features the largest and most sophisticated casino afloat: Casino Royale. There is a themed walkway entrance, The Museum of Gaming, exploring the history of gambling. Design elements include dramatic sculptures, crystal chandeliers, and hues of amethyst, aquamarine and ruby. You'll find 450 slot machines; extensive table games including Blackjack, roulette, craps, and Caribbean Stud Poker; a bar and lounge area; a sports book; a poker room; and a players' club.
Oasis of the Seas Spa & Fitness
In the Pool and Sports Zone, Oasis of the Seas' top-ship neighborhood, you'll find a "zero entry" pool that's great for gradually wading into deeper water; a sports pool (think water-jousting and pool volleyball); and the H2O Zone that's just for kids and features several brightly colored water-spraying sculptures.
Oasis of the Seas is the first cruise ship ever to feature its own zip-line, which runs diagonally across the Pool and Sports Deck, above the Boardwalk. For those who dare to try it, the zip-line offers an amazing (and free) aerial view of the carousel and other attractions, so be sure to look down! You'll need to sign a waiver, obtain a wristband and prepare for what could be a long wait. (It will take about 10 minutes just for the staff to harness you properly.) You will also be required to empty your pockets and wear sneakers and a helmet. This is definitely a fun option, especially at night when the Boardwalk's festive lights are aglow.
There are also two FlowRiders, the surf simulators. Both are located on Deck 16 aft, with the Wipeout Bar wedged between them. One note: If you're intrigued by the FlowRider and have never surfed before, we suggest boogie boarding first. Surfing isn't as easy as it looks.
The adults-only, beautiful, glass-roofed Solarium is often packed and difficult to find a chaise, so plan to arrive early.
The ship's gym has been moved from Royal Caribbean's more traditional top-deck, full-windows locale to midship and is illuminated by portholes with no outside view to the sea. One nice touch: a stairwell inside the gym leads directly down a deck to the ship's running track.
The extensive and vast Vitality Spa offers teeth-whitening, facials, acupuncture treatments, a wide variety of massage treatments, couples massage, body tune-up therapies, waxing services, spa facilities, nail services, hair services, teen and kid spa, and shave, facial, and hair for men. They also host a huge menu of fitness classes at sea and at port -- from pilates and stretching to detox and weight-loss classes.
Oasis of the Seas Family
Oasis of the Seas is an extremely infant-, child- and teen-friendly ship, offering a large variety of activities and brightly colored spaces for children, from ages 6 months to 17 years. The entire kids' program, officially called the Youth Zone, spans more than 28,700 square feet, and is (surprise) the largest of its kind at sea.
Oasis features for Kid's include: Complimentary DreamWorks Experience - memorable moments including character dining, parades, and meet & greets with favorite characters from Shrek, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and more. Complimentary Adventure Ocean Youth Program. Royal Babies and Royal Tots programming. Teen lounge areas and disco. H2O Zone kids' water park. 3D movie theater. Classic carnival games at the new Bordwalk. Two FlowRider surf simulators. Two rock-climbing walls, Zip line, full-sized basketball court. Ice-skating rink, Mini-golf course and Hand-carved carousel.
RCI has started new Royal Tots and Royal Babies programs, which provide childcare and activities for children from 6 to 36 months old. All parents have an opportunity to reserve spots for their kids at the beginning of each cruise at a cost of $8 per hour, per child. Remaining hours are then opened up on a first-come, first-served basis.
Children, ages 3 to 5 (Aquanauts), 6 to 8 (Explorers) and 9 to 11 (Voyagers) have their own spaces to run around, take part in arcade games and Nintendo Wii tournaments, conduct science experiments (like volcano-making) and take in a mini-musical or perform in shows of their own as part of the "ImaginOcean!" theater program onboard.
Partnerships with Crayola and Fisher-Price mean that the Youth Zone is also outfitted with the latest toys, games and supplies. Daytime activities are free, but late-night activities are also offered for a fee of $5 per child, per hour.
Teens, the hardest demographic to impress, probably won't want to leave their designated areas. The ship was intentionally designed to distance the teen section from the rest of the Youth Zone, and away from the throngs of younger kids, teens can enjoy several lounges, juice bars, Nintendo Wii stations, a music room, the Wipe Out Cafe, themed parties and D.J. lessons.
