The Royal Theater has Broadway-style performances that you'll love. Seeing a full-length Broadway-style show while sailing on a ship is so cool!

Fun and Relaxation on the Ship

  • Excitement at the Boardwalk: If you like fun, go to the Boardwalk – a section of the ship that is reminiscent of an old-time seaside pier. Here you will find a working carousel, along with fun dining experiences and outdoor seating areas.

  • Chill by the Pool at the Solarium and Beach Pool: Relax by the pool at the "Solarium" or have fun at the "Beach Pool." The fore-located Solarium (upper level 2 of 2) is the ship’s adults-only relaxation complex spanning 2 decks and covered by a glass rooftop. The Beach Pool (saltwater) has a sloped entry and shaded seating/umbrellas. Both places are awesome for kicking back and enjoying the beautiful ocean views.

Guests can try their hand at surfing or bodyboarding with the assistance of instructors. This attraction allows passengers to experience the thrill of riding ocean waves in a controlled environment. It's a popular feature on many Royal Caribbean ships, including the Wonder of the Seas.

  • Test your skills rock climbing: The Wonder of the Seas boasts two rock climbing walls that span several floors up the aft side of the ship. From beginners to speed climbers, everyone can enjoy an unparalleled view from 40 feet above deck. Included in your fare, with no reservation required.
