But if it’s a more peaceful, romantic and relaxing time onboard that most appeals, then there are plenty of quiet areas, pools, spas and restful lounges where you can while the days away in elegant comfort.
Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis class ships, including the Oasis of the Seas and the Allure of the Seas grabbed headlines throughout the cruise world when they were launched in 2009 and 2010 respectively.

These magnificent resorts at sea are fabulous destinations in themselves with numerous theatres and show lounges, waterparks, shopping malls, cinemas and speciality restaurants – they really have to be seen to be believed.

All offer high quality entertainment and activities with lavish shows, cabaret-style live music and comedy as well as games, competitions and dance classes.
Great quality dining can be enjoyed in one of the informal buffet style eateries or internationally themed bistros, or more formally in main dining rooms with your fellow guests.
There are speciality restaurants featuring cuisine from the USA, Europe and the Orient with some, depending on your choice of ship, offering a more exclusive a la carte menu experience in luxury surroundings for a small surcharge.
You can choose between fixed meal times throughout your cruise or one of Royal Caribbean’s more flexible ‘My Time’ options.
Cabin styles vary depending on which class of ship you choose but all Royal Caribbean’s accommodation is spacious, stylish and well-appointed with the facilities you’d expect from a world-leading cruise line.

And with some holidays departing from Southampton and other European ports, Royal Caribbean is a convenient, as well as an exciting and great value choice for British cruise guests.
