Ocean cruises for all the family

Thinking about a cruise for your next family holiday? There’s plenty of entertainment to be enjoyed en route to Vietnam, Japan and the Philippines on Royal Caribbean’s brand new cruise ship, which has a variety of cruises from Hong Kong. The team from Jebsen Holidays brings us up to speed.

Spectrum of the Seas

Spectrum of the Seas is the latest entry in the Royal Caribbean International fleet, and the global cruise company hasn’t held back when it comes to the fun and games available on board. Whether you love live shows, immersive technology experiences or high-energy sports, you’ll find it all across the 16 decks of this 4,900-passenger ship.

Seven onboard highlights

#1 Two70

This two-storey theatre takes its name for the 270-degree views out of its towering floor-to-ceiling windows – windows that become a giant projection surface for presenting spectacular digital art, from iconic city skylines to larger-than-life waterfalls. In addition, a troupe of six “Roboscreens” come to life in sync with music, special effects and live performers. Currently showing at Two70 is The Silk Road, an original Royal Caribbean production that celebrates the rich and diverse cultures, colours, music and visuals of the famous trade route.

#2 Sky Pad

A virtual-reality bungee trampoline experience located on the aft of the ship, the Sky Pad sees guests strap in and don a VR headset to transport them to another time and planet.
