Royal Caribbean welcomed the latest cruise ship, the Odyssey of the Sea.
The ship has a lot of family-friendly equipment such as skydiving simulators and bumper cars.
These are the coolest features of the ship that guests can experience this year.
Royal Caribbean welcomed the new cruise ship Odyssey of the Sea, which will launch a “fully vaccinated” cruise from Israel this summer.
The announcement comes after a year of bad news for the cruise line, including the COVID-19 outbreak at the start of the pandemic and the industry-wide suspension during 2020 …
… a turbulent reaction to a “fully vaccinated” voyage, and the CDC’s refusal to return to cruise.
The ship was scheduled to enter service from Italy from May to October, but from Israel both the date and location have changed from June to October.
Also, unlike cruises previously canceled on this new vessel, these new Israeli voyages are only available to Israeli residents vaccinated with COVID-19.
Guests under the age of 18 who do not have the vaccine should instead test negative for the virus.
This cruise series takes Israeli guests on a 3-7 night trip around the Mediterranean Sea.
I wonder if I’ll be on a boat for 7 nights?
The 1,138-foot-long and 135-foot-wide cruise offers several facilities to keep guests and their children busy.
This includes a “Caribbean breeze” pool deck with two pools and four whirlpools.
But if you or your child are looking for more active fun, head to Splash Away Bay Water Park or the “Sea Plex” Activity Center.
According to Royal Caribbean, the latter is “the largest indoor active space in the ocean” and includes unique activities such as bumper cars, virtual reality games and laser tags.
If you need a break with your children, head to the Solarium. Here, guests over the age of 16 can hang out in the pool, relaxation area and bar. The image below shows the solarium of another Royal Caribbean ship.
While parents are relaxing, children can participate in an adventure ocean program full of different games and activities.
Teenagers, on the other hand, can instead head to Social 180 to enjoy games, lounges and socializing.
But if the whole family is looking for more adventurous activity, head to the top floor of the ship’s observation area …
… SkyPad bungee trampoline with virtual reality, and both skydiving and surfing simulators.
When it’s time to dine, guests can dine at Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar or Teppanyaki. Both are the first Royal Caribbean in North America.
Are you more interested in indoor entertainment? When you move to Two70, you’ll see a variety of performers and a spinning TV screen, turning your lounge into an immersive theater.
If you’re not based in Israel but find it appealing to travel on the Odyssey of the Sea, wait until November when the ship heads for Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
