Outdoor Movie Nights
Royal Caribbean has a knack for transforming onshore favorites into nautical novelties. We've all heard of drive-in movies…but have you ever heard of a "dive-in" movie? Instead of watching movies inside, select ships offer outdoor movie nights, so you can spend the night lounging on the pool deck as a 220 square foot movie screen presents first-run movies, live sporting events, and more.
Climb nine decks high and zip across the Boardwalk. The Zip Line is all included and requires no reservation!
Royal Caribbean's phenomenal cast of entertainers deliver performances you can only see on board a Royal Caribbean cruise. With their above and beyond venues, vocalists, and dancers, you will be amazed by every production— whether it be a jazz excursion or a techno-inspired cabaret. Featured productions include Columbus, Harmony High, Grease, 1887, and Away We Go.
Prepared to be dazzled by a costumed procession of performers as they dance, cheer, and fly across the ship to the beat of lively music and excitement.
This surf simulator measuring in at 40 feet long with 30,000 gallons of rushing water tests your carving skills— or balance if you're a beginner! Grab a boogie board and shred the surf as your friends cheer you on from stadium seating around the FlowRider®. Use Cruise Planner to make a reservation for FlowRider® or to book private sessions at varying costs. Please note that the boogie board height requirement is 52 inches and stand up 58 inches.
Rock Climbing Wall
Make your way to the top of a forty foot rock wall and take in all the spectacular views! Guests who are six years of age or older are able to partake in this complementary vertical activity with no reservation required.
The AquaTheater is where water and entertainment unite to deliver mesmerizing performances like The Fine Line. Watch as Olympic-level high divers perform spectacular stunts and acrobatics off of 30-foot-tall diving platforms that leave you on the edge of your seat.
Ice Skating Shows
The Harmony of the Seas is equipped with a Studio B ice rink where you can skate with your family or watch dramatic ice shows featuring professional ice skaters from around the world. You'll be wowed by all of the beautiful costumes and amazing choreography showcased in each performance. Make sure you skate by to catch iSkate, one of Royal Caribbean's freestyle-filled productions.
The Comedy Club onboard Harmony of the Seas is an adult-only haunt modeled after the dark and intimate comedy clubs of Manhattan where guest comedians leave you in stitches every night.
