The Best 10 Things To Do On A Cruise

Opting to traveling in a cruise line is one of the best decisions you can make your holiday choices as well as a great investment for spending time with your loved ones. One of the things everyone loves about cruise ships is the comfort of having it all there within reach and not have to worry about anything in the world; all of it while this amazing fortress of a boat travels the oceans on its way to your next wonderful destination. Here at Royal Holiday Cruises, we give you always the best information on how to make the best out of your time while cruising. Today we want to talk about some of the best activities of onboard entertainment you can enjoy, so you can be sure to have a great time the next time you stay with us.

Diner and a Show

The diner and a show routine are becoming more and more popular every year, with cruise lines like Carnival showing great performances by the dancing waiters that put on shows that include something for everyone, from classic tunes loved by all, to the best Bollywood hits. “Cirque Dreams & Dinner” onboard Norwegian Epic and “Cirque Dreams & Dinner Jungle Fantasy” aboard Norwegian Breakaway are two great examples of some of the best interactive entertainment you can see in all the seven seas.

Live Music

Original music, as well as some of the coolest covers that go from Jazz and Blues to the latest hit on the top 40 charts, are here just for you. These shows can take place pretty much at all hours of the way and can be small and intimate through the different bars and dining areas of the ship, to large performances and shows for all the guests traveling in the boat.

Comedy shows

Comedy is geared towards the whole family, with some of the funniest adult content presents later in the evening. Great comedians are always present and in the case of Carnival, they have George Lopez himself to be their “curator of comedy” and handpick the talent that will have the task of entertaining the lucky guests. Be sure that comedy crews are some of the funniest in the world to be chosen to be here.

Hitting the Gym

Gyms inside cruise lines have some of the most modern equipment and well maintain facilities available. It is important to take care of your health while traveling and exercising a little bit is not a bad idea. People have a tendency to overeat or forget about their workout routines while traveling, but if you like to stay focused and be disciplined with your fitness goals, the gyms are there for you. Most of them have specialized classes that can make the whole experience be a lot of fun, so be sure to check them out to see if there is anything you like.

Activities for Children

Your kids can find paradise when they travel in a cruise. Most lines have a whole separate entertainment programing section just for children, which is great for them and wonderful for you as well. Kids can join onboard “camps” where they can be guided by counselors in many organized activities, sports and just all kinds of opportunities to have fun. Some cruises even have more specialized programs designed specifically for children, so check them out before you book so you can make the best choice thinking about the whole family.

Aquatic Sports

Aquatic sports are very popular in cruises traveling through the warm waters of the Caribbean for example, where you can engage in scuba diving, snorkeling, wakeboarding, sailing, water-skiing, wind surfing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Some ships also have an inflatable water trampoline, giving you a destination to swim to.

Destination-themed activities

Princess Cruises, for example, offer a great and wide variety of destination-themed entertainment depending on where you are traveling. Some examples are:

The chance to meet Alaskan lumberjacks with North to Alaska, Hula dancing and ukulele lessons in Hawaii, street pan drum lessons in the Caribbean, mariachis on deck in Mexico, traditional Maori performance in New Zealand and even Brazilian samba dancers in South America just to name a few.

Romantic Diner

With all the great available choices to dine on board, you will for sure find a way to escape the rest of your group for the evening and enjoy a wonderful romantic dinner with your significant other. Just imagine the soft breeze and the perfect weather to accompany you in an unforgettable experience.
