Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines has 25 ships with 5 more on order. They have about 1/5 of the worldwide cruise business and that is probably due to the innovations that they have added to their ships. They were the first to have an ice-skating rink and ice show. They also were the first to have the flow riders. Each succeeding class of ship has expanded the existing amenities and added new and exciting ones. The newest ships are in the Oasis and Quantum Classes. These ships have a capacity of up to 6600 passengers which means that you must preplan activities and realize that there will be lines.
Royal Caribbean is an excellent choice for families and they have itineraries of every length in destinations all around the world. They offer excellent young people’s programs including nursery and toddler programs and they have high standards and educational requirements for the youth counselors.
Adults have many choices of places to be child free including a pool area reserved for people over 18 years of age.
