Royal Caribbean Cruise Line - THE Place for Kids & Teens
by Roy Witman © 2008
Have you ever asked your kids what they want to
do on vacation? If you did, their answers would
probably include rock wall climbing, ice-skating, water
parks, parasailing or hanging out on the beach. Don't
know where to find a place that offers all this and
plenty that adults will also enjoy? I do! And it won't
cost you a fortune either.
Freedom Class ships from Royal Caribbean
Cruise Line offer some of the best activities for
as a whole, plus a ton of things kids and teens can do
on their own. Everybody gets what they want: A little
together time, a little alone time. Here's the short list
what you can expect.
With the frantic pace so many families keep these
days, taking time to bond with the kids is important.
That's why Royal Caribbean offers innovative, family-
friendly activities right onboard their Freedom Class
· Ice-Skating - Yes, you can
skate at sea! Skates and everything you need are
provided. Bring the entire family for an afternoon of
excitement and laughter.
· Karaoke & Talent Shows -
off your talent by participating in the talent shows or
karaoke contests onboard. Get the whole family
together or try a solo or duet.
· Lowe's Build and Grow
Workshops - The perfect idea for hands-on people (or
those who want to be). Construct and decorate a
wooden cruise ship with help from the professionals
· Private Islands - Royal
Caribbean Cruise Line (RCCL) has two pristine
private islands exclusively for RCCL passengers.
Catch some rays, splash around at the Aqua Parks,
parasailing or snorkeling, or - for younger kids - take
off on an adventure at the Fisher-Price Power
· Explorations! Shore
With the help of the pros onboard your RCCL ship,
you can select any number of shore excursions that
are perfect family outings.
· And so much more!
Activities for Kids and Teens
Adventure Ocean is Royal Caribbean's best-loved
program for kids and teens. Created for several
different age groups, kids from ages 3-17 can conduct
age-appropriate science experiments, go to theme
parties, enjoy movie night and make new friends.
Aquanauts (ages 3-5) learn by touch in clever
programs including Wacky Water Workshop, Magnetic
Mayhem, Jurassic Jr. and more. Explorers (ages 6-8)
unlock the secrets of Space Mud, Fossil Fever,
Meteorology Madness and others. Rather learn to be
a star? Adventure Theater is also available to teach
future actors their craft. Voyagers (ages 9-11) can
participate in the X Games, Reggae Beach Party,
scavenger hunts, sport tournaments and other
Teens are allowed more freedom onboard Royal
Caribbean ships so they can come and go as they
wish. With their own version of Adventure Ocean,
teens can discover the mysteries of the ocean or outer
space, or master the scratch and spin with DJ101,
participate in an open mic talent show, take the prize
in the rock-climbing wall competition and more.
And parents can rest easy because every member
of the Adventure Ocean staff holds a college degree in
education, recreation or a related field and has
experience working with children ages 3-17.
If your kids think they'll be bored on a cruise ship,
they'll be pleasantly surprised with Royal Caribbean's
Freedom Class. They've truly given a lot of thought to
entertaining kids and teens through activities they'll
love to take part in. There's so much to do, they won't
know where to start!
