Welcome to their world.
The cruise world has become a monotonous sea of beige, say Royal Caribbean, who aim to drop the jaws of every guest across their 25 ships and 260 destinations, to give them an experience they call 'brag-worthy'.
Their fleet boasts an amazing variety of activities, entertainment, dining, award-winning kids' and teens' clubs, spacious, comfortable accommodation and sailings that take in some of the most incredible destinations in the world. So whether you're looking for a fun-packed family adventure, a relaxing couple's retreat or anything in-between, it's waiting for you onboard.
That's where you set the pace.
So if being active is your thing, take on the Rock Wall, catch a wave on the FlowRider, splash around in the H2O Zone water park, or whizz down the Zip Line. These jaw-dropping activities are all included onboard in the price.
So is your food. With Royal Caribbean, the food is as memorable as your holiday. They have got a great range of restaurants and cafes.
Whether you want a relaxed bite to eat, a fun family meal or an intimate romantic dinner, you’ll be spoilt for choice, with dozens of different restaurants and cafes on each of our ships. It’s safe to say there will always to be something to satisfy any craving.
They've also enlisted world-famous chefs to bring their unique flavours to the seas, including Jamie Oliver and his Mediterranean menu in Jamie's Italian Kitchen.
But, if you seek peace, retreat to the Spa for a bit of top-to-toe pampering, or find the nearest sun-drenched lounge and relax with your favourite book and cocktail, watching your next destination appear over the horizon.
All ships have a wide range of staterooms from where you can kick back, listen to the waves and enjoy the view from your balcony or virtual balcony – a floor to ceiling screen that brings live views of the sea to our interior rooms. Or, catch a movie or the onboard TV show, and let your dedicated, 24hr room attendants deliver your room service order.
On a Royal Caribbean cruise holiday, everything you need to enjoy your holiday is included in the price of your ticket (with additional options should you desire).
Our cruise specialist, Alexis, recommends two itineraries from many, giving you a flavour of what's possible.
Arabian Gulf Cruise: 7 Nights
Step aboard the Vision of the Seas.
Dates from October 2016 to March 2017. Inside cabin cruise start from £399 per person, excluding flights.
DAY 1: Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is a unique blend of the old and new. On one end of the spectrum, you have the "seven-star" luxury hotels and malls of Jumeirah. On the other end there's the traditional side of Dubai with ancient souk markets selling spices.
DAY 2: Khasab, Oman
DAY 3: Muscat , Oman
As one of the Middle East's oldest cities, Muscat boasts beautifully manicured parks, long, unspoiled stretches of beach, and an ancient stone moat that surrounds the area. Both beautiful and intriguing, Muscat will astound you.
DAY 4: Muscat , Oman
DAY 5: Cruising
An 'at sea' day is your chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, including doing nothing at all. Relax in the Spa, take in a show at the theatre, or experience any of the incredible dining venues. There's so much to do the difficulty will be choosing what to do next!
DAY 6: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
The discovery of oil transformed Abu Dhabi from a fishing village into a thriving modern metropolis that has not forgotten its past. Futuristic skyscrapers and luxury hotels offer sharp contrast to museums, mosques, and bazaars.
DAY 7 Return to Dubai
Southern Caribbean Cruise: 12 Nights
Board the Anthem of the Seas, a quantum leap forward in cruise holidays.
Dates from November 2016 to April 2017. Inside cabin cruise start from £1349, excluding flights.
DAY 1: Cape Liberty, Bayonne, N.J.
The perfect setting to the beginning or end of any voyage. From the vantage point of the deck, you can look out over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, New York Harbour and all of lower Manhattan.
DAYS 2 - 3: Cruising
Two 'at sea' days is your chance to explore all the amazing activities the ship has to offer, or simply do nothing at all. Relax in the Spa, take in a show at the theatre, or experience any of the incredible dining venues.
DAY 4: San Juan, Puerto Rico
Hulking Spanish forts with dungeons ripe for exploration guard the beautifully preserved Old City. Lose yourself in its warren of cobbled streets, full with cafés, shops and shady squares. Or head for the hills for scenic trails, caves and crafts.
DAY 5: Philipsburg, St. Maarten
An island with a split personality. Start your day in this laid-back Dutch capital, then cross the island to the delightful French capital, Marigot. Enjoy its chic shops, market and sidewalk cafés, before heading back for a swim at Orient Beach.
DAY 6: St. John's, Antigua
It's said this island gem has 365 beaches - one for every day of the year! But there's much more besides. Take a stroll around Nelson's Dockyard, admire the super-yachts in English Harbour, or splash out on duty-free designer clothing and jewellery.
DAY 7: Castries, St. Lucia
The markets and shops of this lively port are a bargain hunter's delight. Take a scenic trip to historic Soufrière to view the dramatic volcanic plugs known as the Pitons, then bathe in hot mineral springs at nearby Diamond Falls Botanic Gardens.
DAY 8: Bridgetown, Barbados
A Caribbean ‘Little England' - except this one comes with emerald seas and warm breezes! Step back in time in the great Jacobean plantation house, St. Nicholas Abbey, followed by a quiet snorkel through the seahorses and shipwrecks at Carlisle Bay
DAY 9: Basseterre, St. Kitts
Be entranced by the Caribbean's first French town, rich in architectural reminders of a colonial past. Take a scenic train trip, snorkel with the pelicans, shop for exquisite batiks, or simply chill to the sound of reggae with a coconut cocktail.
DAYS 10 - 12: Cruising
DAY 13: Return to Cape Liberty, Bayonne, N.J.
