Top 10 Activities on Royal Caribbean
This artificial wave generator uses 30,000 gallons of rushing water to bring you the ultimate surfing experience. Note that participants must be at least 4 ft (52 in) tall to ride sitting down, and 4.5 ft (58 in) tall to ride standing up. This exhilarating Royal Caribbean cruise feature is a massive hit among sports lovers onboard. For novices, there are private lessons that can be booked at an additional cost.

3. North Star
A jewel-shaped capsule on the ship, North Star hoists guests above sea level for incredible coastal views. To ride alone, there is a minimum height requirement of 42 – 48 in and a maximum weight limit of 300 lbs. The glass pod is climate controlled, ensuring that guests get to experience delight during any season. Unlike the Flowrider, the North Star is not a thrill ride and is appropriate for all age groups!
4. Wine Tasting
This class features some of the world’s most famous vintages and some varieties are only found aboard Royal Caribbean. Once aboard, ask the maître d’ for more information. Guests are given a lesson about how to engage their senses and use them to understand the complexity and flavors of different wines—from ports to chardonnay. You’ll sip and swirl like a wine connoisseur by the end of the night when you enroll in this classic Royal Caribbean feature available on most cruises.
5. Vitality Spa
Choose your favorite method of relaxation: massages, wraps, facials, acupuncture, nails, and more.

6. Dance Class
Try your hand at salsa, hip-hop, swing, or ballroom, then take your new skills to one of the many nightlife locals aboard! Spice up your dance skills by learning a round of bachata or just swirl to the slow ballroom music and feel like a Disney princess. Don’t forget though, because guests are required to enroll themselves to access this amazing feature.
7. Rock Climbing Wall
Climbers of all skill levels are welcome to scale the 40 feet walls – no reservation required! Guests must be at least 6 years of age to participate. Safety equipment will be provided onboard the ship.
