08 Nov 2017

You won't believe all the amazing activities you can do on a cruise ship! Here are just 7 of them...

1: Sky Diving

Yes, you really can sky dive on a cruise ship! Ripcord by iFly is available on Royal Caribbean's Anthem of the Seas, Quantum of the Seas, and Ovation of the Seas, and is a safe wind tunnel that simulates the effects of a sky dive, without having to jump from thousands of feet in the air.

2: Go Karts

Put your foot down and race with friends on a cruise ship! Electric go karts zip around a twisting circuit on the top deck of Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Bliss and Norwegian Joy.

3: Robot Bartenders

Whether its a classic martini - shaken, not stirred - a refreshing cocktail, or a custom-made creation, have it served by two attentive robots! The specially designed robot arms were choreographed by the movement of ballet dancers.

4: Ropes course

Feeling playful? Get your blood pumping on a adventurous ropes course. Swing from post to post, manoeuvre around obstacles, and with Norwegian Cruise Line, you can even 'walk the plank' that extends over the side of the ship! Ropes courses are available on selected Carnival, NCL and MSC Cruises ships.

5: Cirque du Soleil

Prepare to be amazed. On MSC Cruises' MSC Bellissima and MSC Meraviglia, you can enjoy a spectacular acrobatic show by the talented Cirque du Soleil performers. The round stage is perfect for getting the best angle no matter where you sit. You can also enjoy a delicious meal as part of the show.

6: Ice skating

Take to the ice and practice your skating skills onboard several Royal Caribbean cruise ships, or take in a show and watch the superb professional ice skaters show off their skills in a production show.

7: Water slides

Thrilling water slides can be found on a variety of cruise ships currently sailing. There are loads of fun and wild slides, visit this blog post to see which are the top ones to try!
