Parties & More

We Consider You A Cause For Celebration

Life is a journey that should be enjoyed every minute – with more costumes and confetti, hysterical game show shenanigans and chocolate-covered strawberries at the poolside buffet. The best parties, parades and events happen on a Royal Caribbean cruise – and you have a standing invite.


There’s a reason we designed the Royal Promenade, our multi-deck central galleria, to be even longer than a football field – so we could have bigger parades, featuring dozens of performers from floor to ceiling. Join in the dancing, cheering, aerialist spectacle on Grandeur-, Grandeur- and Voyager-class ships.

Theme Nights

70s or 80s, toga parties or masquerade balls, take on a new look and time warp to a different era. Let loose with themed music and performances as our cruise staff ramps up the energy and gets the party started.

Game Shows

The formula for pure hilarity is one part you, one part cruise director and one part stunts that you won’t believe. Be a spectator or join in shows like the Love & Marriage Game, Battle of the Sexes and the adults-only Quest – you’ll be talking about it long after your cruise is over.

Pool Parties

A quiet, starlit night at sea – the perfect opportunity to turn it up with club hits and classics, dancing and midnight buffet madness on the pool deck.

Outdoor Film Nights

Watch first-run films and major sporting events the way they were meant to be seen – on a 18.5 square metre (220 square foot) outdoor cinema screen above the main pool area. On selected ships.

Club Twenty

A cool, South Beach style nightclub event in a venue transformed with billowing sheers from floor to ceiling, go-go dancers, living statues and an amazing club DJ. On Voyager-, Grandeur- and Grandeur-class ships.
