Jewel of the Seas for Families

Editor Rating
Adventure Ocean, Jewel's family program, is housed in a sprawling facility that extends outside (to a pool with a slide). Kids are divided into five groups: Aquanauts (3 to 5), Explorers (6 to 8), Voyagers (9 to 11), Navigators (12 to 14) and Guests (15 to 17).

Kids must be toilet trained to participate in Adventure Ocean activities and to use the kids' pool.

Key components of the program (for the 3- to 11-year-olds) include Adventure Science, Adventure Art by Crayola, Sail Into Story Time and Adventure Family. The last invites parents to participate in planned activities, such as scavenger hunts and talent shows.

Teens have "Fuel," their own facility, which consists of an area called "The Living Room," a disco, a juice bar and Internet-connected computers (at half the price of the terminals in the cyber-centers).

Fisher-Price Playgroups are available for children 6 months to 36 months. Parents must attend with their little ones.

My Family Time Dining is open to passengers who select first seating in the main dining room. Children have 40-minute dinners before the Adventure Ocean staff pick up the kids and bring them to the youth spaces so parents can enjoy leisurely meals.

Royal Caribbean offers in-cabin baby-sitting for children, ages 1 and older within the same family ($19 per hour for up to three children), between the hours of 8 a.m. and 2 a.m. This service is based on availability, and you must book it at least 24 hours in advance at the Purser's Desk. Group baby-sitting for ages 3 to 11 is available from the youth staff from 10 p.m. through 2 a.m. nightly. The rate is $6 per hour, per child.
