The Royal Comeback is in full swing and Royal Caribbean now has 22 ships back in service across the world. So now you can make up for lost vacation time on the world’s largest and most incredible ships. Here are five ways to amp up your 2022 adventure with the cruise line voted Best Overall for 19 years running by Travel Weekly readers.
1. PERFECT DAY AT COCOCAY
Escape to The Bahamas and enjoy a private destination like no other — Perfect Day at CocoCay. Here you can fill your day with countless thrills and ways to chill, or blend the best of both. Plunge down North America’s tallest waterslide, Daredevil’s Peak. Opt for an altitude adjustment and soar above the island on the Up, Up and Away helium balloon. And for the ultimate in island tranquility, kick back in your own Floating Cabana at Coco Beach Club.
2. THAT NEW SHIP SMELL
Odyssey of the Seas, the newest Royal Caribbean ship, offers a family-friendly vacation with experiences you wouldn’t expect to find at sea. Like simulated skydiving, or roller skating, circus school and bumper cars at the SeaPlex activity center. And you can snap the ultimate selfie inside the North Star observation capsule with dramatic backdrops of the ocean or picturesque Caribbean or European shores.
Wonder of the Seas, another new ship, will soon launch as the largest cruise ship in the world — adding an eighth neighborhood to the iconic Oasis Class design. New experiences include the Wonder Playscape for kids and cocktails with a view at The Vue Bar, plus guest favorites like the Ultimate Abyss slide and FlowRider® surf simulator. Wonder is a must-see ship sailing the Caribbean beginning March 2022 before an epic season of Europe getaways.
3. NAVIGATOR OF THE SEAS FROM L.A.
Now you can combine some of your favorite L.A. experiences with new adventures like ice skating, plunging down the longest waterslide at sea and visiting the west coast’s best and brightest shore. The Amplified Navigator of the Seas has made its Hollywood debut as the first Royal Caribbean ship to sail from L.A. in over a decade. Make your way to the likes of Catalina Island, California and Ensenada, Mexico in between adventures onboard, from The Perfect Storm waterslides to the fan-favorite FlowRider.
4. GOODIES FROM GALVESTON
This summer, Liberty of the Seas and Grandeur of the Seas set sail from Galveston, Texas to the bright and sunny shores of the western Caribbean, including Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica. Later in the year, the brand new state-of-the-art Royal Caribbean terminal opens in Galveston, with techy conveniences like mobile check-in and facial recognition.
5. AN AMPED ALL-STAR IN CAPE LIBERTY
Adventure never sleeps onboard the Amplified Oasis of the Seas sailing from Cape Liberty, New Jersey. You can enjoy all the New York area has to offer before you’re tropics-bound for Perfect Day at CocoCay and Nassau. Along the way, one of the world’s largest ships offers adventure at every turn, from high-diving AquaTheater spectaculars to ziplining ten decks above the bustling Boardwalk.
