Will I Get Seasick? Seasickness is very rare on ships as large as ours. All our ships are equipped with stabilizers which are designed to keep them smooth and steady in the water. If you should feel queasy, medicine is available from your cabin steward, the Information Desk or from the doctor.

Can I use my cell phone on the cruise? Yes, cell phone service is available onboard the ship. International Roaming rates will apply, so check with your cell phone service provider to determine what the charges will be.

Is There a Doctor on Board? Yes, a qualified physician and nurse from our medical staff are on call 24 hours a day. Infirmary hours for medical examinations can be found in your stateroom. A professional fee will be charged. If you should come down with a contagious disease, or even suspect a contagious disease, it is compulsory that you report it to the ship's doctor for the safety of everyone on board. Should you be on any medication, or want the medical staff to be aware of any special needs, please contact our infirmary. This will ensure they will be prepared should you need assistance. Doctors are independent contractors.

Medications? Please carry your required medication in your carry-on bag so that it will be available when needed. Checked luggage may not be accessible at all times. If you're using any prescription drugs, vitamins or other medication on a regular basis, you should bring an adequate supply with you since these may not be readily available either aboard ship or in our ports of call. Commonly used medications may be purchased at the office of the ship's doctor.

Does the ship offer Internet Service? Yes, Stay connected with friends and family all cruise long with 24 hour access. The VOOM Surf + Stream Voyage Package lets you message and video chat on messenger services, browse the web, send emails and post on social media, and video chat live. Plus stream your favorite videos, movies, music and shows.

Royal Caribbean VOOM, the fastest internet at sea, is now available on every Royal Caribbean ship. With six times faster onboard WiFi speed than you’ll find on any other cruise ships in the world, the internet connectivity is unlike anything you’re ever experienced on a cruise ship.

What About Electrical Appliances? Bring them with you by all means. The ship's staterooms are equiped with an 110 volts AC outlet capable of handling all normal appliances such as electric razors, hair dryers and hot curlers. However, some appliances may require use of an adapter. Irons are not permitted in the staterooms.

Are There Baby-Sitters? Yes. Please check at the Front Desk for pricing and available times.

Where Is the Lost And Found? The Lost and Found is located at the Front Desk. If you've lost anything, you should report the item to the Front Desk and ask if it has turned up yet. If you find anything, please turn it in there. After the ship returns to your port of origin, all found and unclaimed articles will be kept on the ship.

Tipping? Gratuities of $101.50 pp will be billed to your stateroom during the cruise. The gratuities are for the following ship personnel:

  • Dining Room Maitre d'
  • Dining Room Head Waiter
  • Dining Room Waiter
  • Dining Room Assistant Waiter
  • Room Steward

Other personnel, such as Bar Waiters, Bellboys and Deck Stewards may be tipped as service is rendered.

Covid-19 Protocols (as of 4/14/22) All Royal Caribbean guests age 12 and older must present proof of full COVID-19 vaccination with the final dose of their vaccine administered at least 14 days before sailing. Kids age 5 to 11 who have been vaccinated may present proof of full vaccination and follow the protocols for vaccinated guests. While we do not require kids younger than 12 to be vaccinated, many are and it is highly likely destinations will begin to require guests age 5 and older to be vaccinated. We will notify booked guests as this guidance evolves.

Each guest’s regimen must include at least two doses of vaccine unless the guest received the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. This is per U.S. CDC guidance, and no exceptions will be made, even if the guest's resident country has authorized a single-shot regimen for a two dose vaccine.

Birthdays and Anniversaries If you're going to celebrate a birthday or wedding anniversary during your cruise, please let the Maitre d' know.

What to Do With Your Valuables? We're sure you'll want to bring your camera, jewelry and other valuable items with you on your cruise. However, since the ship cannot accept responsibility for any articles left in the stateroom, public areas or packed in your luggage, we suggest the use of a safety deposit box or cabin safe. For your convenience and protection, safety deposit boxes are available at the Front Desk.

What About Towels? Towels are supplied on deck by the pool, so please don't bring any from your stateroom.

Are there restrictions on traveling with an infant or traveling while pregnant? Yes, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines will not accept reservations for infants 6 months or younger on the date of sailing, or pregnant women who will be entering the 24th week of their pregnancy by the last day of the cruise.
