There are so many wonderful kids clubs on Royal Caribbean Cruises but do they suit everyone
When you are booking a family cruise one of the main things to ensure is whether everyone will be happy. Will there be enough for the kids to do? What will the kids club be like? Will there be enough places for them to play? Will your kids be able to attend the Kids Club together, or will they be split.
On Royal Caribbean Cruises Children are separated into five age groups with their own activities and private rooms.
Royal Babies & Tots
From 6 months you can join you child in Royal Babies (6-18 months) or Royal Tots (18-36 months) with their interactive playgroup sessions including music, toys and learning activities, developed by early childhood experts at Fisher-Price. These sessions are 45-minutes long and you must accompany children.
Royal Babies & Tots Nursery comes at an extra fee. Children aged 6-36 months can be cared for by trained professionals, while enjoying specially designed programs. Daytime and evening drop-off is offered; 2017 hourly fee of $6 in the daytime and $8 during the evening applies, and you can book onboard.
Aquanauts (3-5 years)
Bubbling Potions, dinosaur-sized secrets of Jurassic Junior and Pirate Party Parades. Parents of three-year olds can opt for pagers so Adventure Ocean staff can stay in touch. Children must be 100% potty trained and nappy free.
Each room has its own activities area, and Internet consoles line at least one wall.
Explorers (6-8 years)
Space Mud, Fossil Fever, Meteorology Madness! Hands-on science with Adventure Art and Adventure Theater. Round Dancing is a major them as is ice cream.
Voyagers (9-11 years)
For 9 to 11 year olds there’s a range of cool and educational activities including science experiments, backstage tours and new sports like Gagaball.
Navigators (12 – 14) and older teens (15 – 17)
Also have their own clubs and for a little teen time and meeting new friends the Teen Club is a cool laid back area
12 to 14 can take part in BBQs, movie nights, open mic nights and talents shows or get active with rock climbing competitions, dodgeball and Dance Dance Revolution5 to 17
Those aged 15 to 17 can chill out with the Wii, sing karaoke, join in with teen dinners, theme nights and even enjoy pool parties.
The hangouts are Teen-Only Hang Outs where you can start off hanging out late in the teen lounge and laid-back hideaway before moving on to the teen-only nightclub to finish off the night.
You can use the Babysitting Service (for children aged over 12 months) this can be offered in a group setting or individually in your stateroom. Available for up to three children in the same family for approximately $19 an hour.
Having had an extensive refurbishment in early 2017, the Liberty of the Seas, Royal Caribbean Ship now boasts facilities to make all of the family smile. If you have teenagers rather than kids then why not read our post on Liberty of the Seas for Teenagers here!
The Babies2Go service lets you pre-order Huggies® ready-to-go nappy bags, and Gerber® organic baby food to be delivered right to your stateroom when you arrive, and throughout your cruise.
