Track Royal Caribbean cruise ships
Royal Caribbean has built a reputation for itself for offering its passengers a lot of activities to do onboard their cruise ships. And did we mention they're free? In fact, some of these outdoor activities have become iconic aspects of any Royal Caribbean cruise. So here's a listing of all of the fun outdoor activities you and your family can enjoy on your next cruise.
One of the first outdoor activities Royal Caribbean introduced on their cruise ships was a rock wall and at that time, it was an impressive first at sea. Guest feedback was so positive that rock walls were added to all of their cruise ships across the Royal Caribbean fleet.
The 30-foot rock wall offers different tracks for various experience levels and is open for most of the day. It's open to kids and adults and Royal Caribbean provides all the safety equipment that you will need, including helmets, harnesses and shoes. You just need to bring a pair of socks.
Climbers need to be at least 6 years old and sign a waiver. Climbing the rock wall is free and no reservations are required.
If you like a slower pace for outdoor fun, then check out the mini golf course. Just like your local putt-putt, Royal Caribbean's mini golf courses offer a number of interesting courses, although here you have a great view of the ocean as a backdrop.
Playing mini golf onboard Royal Caribbean ships is free and no reservations are required.
Just like the rock wall, the addition of the Flowrider surf simulator put Royal Caribbean ships on the map (again) with this innovation. The self-contained surfing area pumps 34, 000 gallons per minute and allows passengers to try stand-up surfing as well as boogie boarding.
While the Flowrider experience is far more of a controlled environment than the ocean, learning to stand up (and stay standing up) on your surf board isn't so easy so Royal Caribbean offers lessons for an additional price. Both private and group lessons are available.
The Flowrider is available on Quantum of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas, Independence of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas.
