This Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship Looks Like Actual Heaven For Families

Forget what you thought you knew about outdated kids clubs and awkward end-of-holiday discos; this new Royal Caribbean cruise ship promises an experience like no other.

Set to sail around Asia, Spectrum of the Seas recently became the 26th ship in the line’s fleet, and as the first of Royal Caribbean’s Quantum Ultra Class (the next stage on from their renowned Quantum Class), the ship is the largest and most innovative of its kind—and you’ll be blown away by some of its features.

Family-Friendly Features


Alongside a host of brand-new Asian-inspired dining experiences and features like RipCord by iFly—a skydiving simulator, FlowRider—a surf simulator, and Royal Caribbean's SeaPlex, which offers roller skating, basketball, bumper cars, bites and music from a floating DJ booth suspended overhead, there’s even more to be discovered on Spectrum of the Seas.

Among the ship’s most unique and technologically-advanced features is the ‘Sky Pad’, a dome-like space where guests can have a bungee jump-type experience mixed with virtual reality—aka, jump on a trampoline while wearing a VR headset that’ll project out-of-this-world images. How’s that for 21st-century cruisin’?

The Ultimate Family Suite


The ship also boasts Royal Caribbean’s largest family suite spreading across two stories and 2,809-feet. Called the Ultimate Family Suite, the suite has its own slide for the kiddies (yep—just to confirm, that’s an IN-ROOM slide we’re talking about)!

And if that wasn't enough, there's also a rock climbing wall, luxurious spa, private cinema, a karaoke room and a whole lot more. See you on board!
