Things you never knew you could do on a cruise

Expect the unexpected on a cruise. There’s an array of jaw-dropping adventures and luxury touches that await on sailings across the planet.

Thrills and spills

Slip on your skates to glide and pirouette across an authentic ice-skating rink or throw yourself into 100mph winds that blast you high in an exhilarating sky-diving simulator. Then relax with a Martini cocktail – shaken, not stirred, and served by robotic bar-tenders, all on Royal Caribbean International ships.

Daredevil delights

Catch your breath – and your stomach – as you soar over the Russian landscape at twice the speed of sound in a MiG fighter jet with Crystal Cruises; race along the French Riviera in a scarlet red Ferrari; or zoom through the Patagonian fjords on a high-speed jet-boat, on this trio of adventurous excursions.

Pampering treats

Enjoy an aquatic cocktail party on an exotic beach and succumb to a relaxing al fresco massage on deck while butlers polish your sunglasses, courtesy of Seabourn, or sleep under the stars on special Balinese deck-beds aboard SeaDream Yacht Club.

Creature comforts

Ride out on elephant-back safaris to spot tigers during river cruises in India; swim with sealions and snorkel with penguins on sailings around the Galapagos Islands; or take a float-plane ride on Alaska voyages to watch bears catching salmon.

Exclusive experiences

Dine in style with royalty amid the opulent splendour of fairytale palaces on Rhine and Danube river cruises; take an evening tour of St Mark’s Basilica in Venice when the crowds have gone home; and beat the queues to St Petersburg’s famous Hermitage Museum on an early access tour before it opens.

Sky’s the limit

Perfect your lotus position on a yoga-themed sailing with tall ship line Star Clippers; reach for the stars on astronomy voyages into the Arctic Circle with Hurtigruten; and move to the rhythm on a string of musical cruises, from operatic arias with Katherine Jenkins to the MC stylings of rapper Pitbull.
