From sunrise to sunset and around every corner, there's something exciting for you to do on a Royal Caribbean International cruise vacation. Onboard, try the rock-climbing wall, or work out with one of the fitness trainers. How about a swim or a relaxing massage? Better yet, try your luck at Caribbean Stud Poker, attend an art auction, or turn it out dancing in a nightclub. There are even supervised activities for kids.
Tipping Policy
Royal Caribbean will add a daily US$14.50 gratuity (US$17.50 for suite guests) to each guest's onboard SeaPass account. The gratuities are shared by the Dining Services Staff, Stateroom Attendants, and other Housekeeping Services personnel. Alternatively, guests may prepay gratuities prior to boarding by calling Royal Caribbean. Guests who prepay gratuities will not have an automatic daily gratuity added to their SeaPass account.

An 18% gratuity is also automatically added to beverages, minibar items, spa and salon purchases. If guests wish to reward exceptional service by providing additional gratuities, they may do so by providing an additional gratuity to their SeaPass account or a cash gratuity at their discretion.
Shipboard Policies
  • Internet Access
    There is wireless internet access in selected areas onboard. Wi-Fi service provides internet access 24 hours a day through guests' own Internet Service Provider. The service is available fleetwide at a nominal charge. More information available onboard.

  • Medical Emergencies
    Should a guest become sick or injured while onboard, they should visit the medical facility immediately. The doctor will diagnose the illness/injury and advise accordingly.

  • Pregnancy Policy
    Royal Caribbean International cannot accept guests who will have entered their 24th week of pregnancy by the beginning of, or at any time during the cruise or cruisetour. A physician's "Fit to Travel" note is required prior to sailing, stating how far along (in weeks) the pregnancy will be at the beginning of the cruise and confirming that the guest is in good health and not experiencing a high-risk pregnancy. The "Fit to Travel" note should be faxed to the Access Department at 1-954-628-9622. Guests should contact Royal Caribbean at 1-866-592-7225 or at special_needs@rccl.com if they have already booked a cruise or cruisetour and do not meet this requirement.

  • Smoking Policy
    For the comfort and enjoyment of all guests, Royal Caribbean ships are designated as non-smoking. However, there are certain public and private areas where smoking is allowed.

    Smoking in public areas is only permitted in designated smoking sections, which vary by ship. Generally, smoking is permitted outdoors on only one side of the ship, and on all private oceanfront balconies. To assist in locating areas where smoking is permitted, you will find visible signage posted within all smoking areas and ashtrays that are provided for your use.

    For safety reasons smoking is NOT permitted inside any stateroom, any dining venues, food outlet, theater, hallway, or corridor.

    Pipe or cigar smoking is only permitted within the Cigar Lounge on applicable ships.

  • Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required
    Royal Caribbean will make every effort to accommodate guests' dietary requirements whenever possible. They can accommodate dietary needs such as:

    • Food allergies
    • Gluten-free
    • Kosher
    • Low-fat
    • Low-sodium

    Vegetarian Meals (including Indian-style vegetarian) are available on all menus in the Dining Room and Windjammer Cafe every day. Guests do not need to make a special request for these meals.

    Lactose-free/soy milk, Ensure, and kosher meals are available at no extra charge. Guests will need to notify RCCL at least 45 days prior to sailing (90 days for European/South American Itineraries).

    Kosher for Passover meal requests MUST be received 90 days in advance in order to be accommodated.

    Guests should contact their travel agent and request that special meal requests be noted in their reservation details. Special meal requests that are received less than 45 days prior to sailing (90 days for European/South American itineraries) are dependent on the ship's product availability. Royal Caribbean will try to accommodate requests to the best of their ability.

    Please note: Baby food is available via the Gifts and Gear page via the Babies To Go program and infant formula is not provided on board.

    Guests may not bring on board any food items other than baby food and/or dry, nonperishable snack items (cookies, crackers, chips, energy bars, etc).

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs
    While guests are not required to provide information about the extent of their disability, the more information they can share with Royal Caribbean about specific needs, they better they will be able to accommodate those needs.

    Guests are encouraged to notify Royal Caribbean of special needs at the time of booking, in order to guarantee availability of specific equipment or services. Please provide:

    • 60 days advance notice if you need sign language interpreting services during your cruise.
    • 30 days advance notice if you need special equipment or services (see list below) to accommodate your disability during the cruise.
    • If Royal Caribbean does not receive enough advance notice, they will make reasonable efforts to provide requested equipment and/or services within the timeframe allotted.
