   Category: Alpha | No comments

If you haven’t heard about #TheRoyalChurpSGInvasion then hop on over to our Dayre to read all about it! We often get the common misconception that “cruising is boring”, “there’s nothing to do!”… Well, we were onboard for 5 days and couldn’t be happier, let us show you how we cruise!

Here are the…


1. Chill out on the deck





And perhaps a cocktail in hand? 😀 That’s practically all we need for a day out on the deck. It’s the perfect place to people watch and get that glowy suntan you’ve always wanted, and when the weather gets a little too hot, have a dip in the pool and soak up the sun!

It’s hard not to miss the gorgeous sunset!

2. Breakfast in bed

Feeling hungry but don’t wanna leave your bed? With 24 hours room service, get comfy in your PJs and have your breakfast (lunch or dinner) under the sheets or take it out to the balcony overlooking the great blue sea!


3. Watch a movie under the stars

When night falls, the fun doesn’t stop there. Get comfy in the hot tub and catch a flick set against the pitch darkness of the open seas.

4. EAT! 

You’ll never go hungry onboard! With food available all day long at various eateries, you’ll be spoilt for choices.

Dine in style at Chops Grille ($), Mariner of the Seas’ most premium restaurant, where they take pride in serving the best steaks.

Dress to impress on formal night and reenact that timeless scene in Titanic as you enter the Main Dining Hall.


5. Get physical!

For all you fitness enthusiasts out there, sweat it out at Royal Caribbean’s sports deck where you can…

Channel your inner Spiderman at the rock climbing wall

Shoot some hoops with your pal

RunningRun, Vera, run…

Get a 360 degrees view as this track loops around the entire deck!

Lift some weights like our muscleman @jhwphay at the state-of-the-art fitness centre where you can also sign up for yoga classes and more!

There’s something for everyone, so pick your sport or try it all!


6. Entertain the kids!

Well, although we didn’t sail with kids, we thought this might be useful for families out there.

Check out the award-winning Adventure Ocean youth program that offers activities that are both fun and educational.

On top of that, there’s even an arcade area, inline skating track and mini golf course to spend some quality family time!

I like to move it move it!

The kids and adults will enjoy these flash performances by DreamWorks’ Madagascar, held at the poolside and in the Royal Promenade during various timings of the day!


7. Watch Ice Skaters in awe

Be mesmerized and wow-ed by the twists and twirls of professional figure skaters in ICE Under the BIG Top. Don’t miss this spectacular circus on ice!


8. Catch a Broadway performance

If you are in the mood for drama and the arts, head down to the majestic Main Theatre in the evening for a night of singing and dancing set to a live orchestra. What’s more, the Main Theatre also screens movies throughout the day if you’re just looking for some chill time indoors!


9. Explore the ship’s bow

Who knew the helipad could provide such good photo-taking opportunities!

Look out into the horizon as the ocean breeze runs through your hair and bask in the moment.

Yet another Titanic moment as shown here by @missgoob!

Pop some champagnes, put on your dancing shoes and groove to the beat!
