Five things you never knew about Royal Caribbean’s repositioning cruises:
On a longer sailing, guests can relax onboard a world class ship and explore must-see destinations off the beaten path. Here are five unexpected advantages of a transpacific cruise:
Endless Onboard Activities: Due to the longer distances covered, transpacific cruises offer more days at sea. Travellers can fully immerse themselves in Quantum Class onboard activities including flying-high in the RipCord by iFLY skydiving simulator, catching waves on the FlowRider surf simulator, or simply relaxing in the adult’s only solarium.
Unforgettable Experiences: Additional days at sea means even more sunsets! For an extra special sunset experience the Guinness World Record-breaking North Star, elevates guests 100 metres above sea level to take in spectacular views of the ocean
– and a likely winner of one of the best sunsets guests will ever experience. What’s more, holidaymakers can hire out the entire North Star for the ultimate date night.
Embrace Downtime: Guests can make the most of the slower paced sailing, with plenty of time to relax and recharge. Whether that means indulging in a full body deep tissue massage at Vitality Spa, unwinding at an indulgent wine tasting at Vintages, Royal Caribbean’s premier wine bar, or making friends with like minded travellers onboard.
Unique Wildlife: Many islands in the South Pacific and the East coast of Australia are surrounded by coral reefs which are a haven for tropical marine life such as dolphins, and sea turtles. On Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas sailings, that explore the Queensland coast, join a Great Barrier Reef shore excursion to experience one of the seven wonders of the natural world. Guests can set sail on an exclusive catamaran for an afternoon surrounded by an abundance of vibrant marine life and colourful coral. Holidaymakers can enjoy snorkelling, scuba diving, or a reef tour on a semi-submersible vessel walking in an underwater viewing chamber.
Extended Holiday Packages: Royal Caribbean offers extended holiday packages, making it easier for travellers to take their time and explore their destination. Whether guests arrive early or stay longer – Royal Caribbean has guests covered with hotel packages in regions such as Singapore and Honolulu.
