If you’ve got cruise holidays on the agenda, the chances are you’ve heard of Royal Caribbean International. Also known as RCI, this cutting-edge cruise operator is leading the field with its innovative take on cruise holidays and is famous for its more unusual activities and entertainment. You’ve probably seen their TV adverts, where holidaymakers can go rock-climbing or take ice skating lessons at sea. It really is a sea-faring holiday of adventure.

On the subject of adventure, let’s take a look at one of RCI’s most popular vessels – the aptly named Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas.


This spectacular ship sails to a fabulous range of destinations. Close to home, you can visit Rome and Florence in Italy and experience the volcanic beauty of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Further afield, Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas can whisk you off to the exotic splendour of San Juan in Puerto Rico. And if you’re wondering what to do while you’re at sea, that’s where the adventure really starts.


Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas is home to such innovative onboard facilities as a rock-climbing wall, ice-skating rink, mini-golf course and golf simulator, a basketball court and even an in-line skating track. The adventure continues with a dazzling array of entertainment including ice shows, Broadway-style entertainment and even a Vegas-style casino. There’s duty-free shopping, a long list of different bars, clubs and lounges, and numerous restaurants ranging from informal cafes and burger bars to sushi, Asian, Italian, and swanky a la carte restaurants serving up something that little bit special.


All this, and it’s not as expensive as you might think. You can go direct to Royal Caribbean to explore their various ships and itineraries, or scour the market and compare against other cruise lines through tour operators like Thomas Cook. To make life simpler, you can book a Thomas Cook Cruise or explore the options online, over the phone or by popping into a high street shop. It’s a great way to get your sea-faring adventure off to the best possible start.
