2. Royal Caribbean

Indoor skydiving & surf simulators

With their massive, family-friendly ships, it’s no surprise that Royal Caribbean has been the go-to cruise line for many.

This is only what’s available at the pool deck – there’s plenty more on board.

This year, 4 of their ships will be making a stop on our sunny island, with cruises ranging from short 3-day round trips to Phuket to 15-day journeys to Dubai.

There’s so much to do onboard that we don’t blame you if you decide to skip out on shore excursions to fully explore the ship’s activities. Crowd favourites include the indoor skydiving station – RipCord by iFly. If it sounds familiar it’s because it’s by the same people behind iFly Singapore. You’ll enter a wind tunnel and experience free-falling, as if you’ve just leapt out of a plane.

If not skydiving, maybe surfing might be more your cup of tea. But there’s no need to step into the deep blue to try this out. Both Anthem of the Seas and Spectrum of the Seas have a FlowRider surf simulator on deck, where you’ll get to safely ride on artificial waves.

3. Carnival Cruise Line

Visit the on-board brewery

2 Carnival Cruise Line ships – Carnival Panorama and Carnival Splendor – are due to dock at Singapore this year before they head to Los Angeles and Sydney respectively. The voyages last up to 25 days, but before you worry about cabin fever, there’s loads to do, even on days while the ships are out at sea.

For one, you’ll want to get a seat on the SkyRide. Suspended 45m above the sea, the ride gives you a bird’s eye view of the ship. You’ll have to pedal to move along the 243m-long track, but that just means more calories burned so you can enjoy the international cuisines available.

The brewery is located within Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse, a restaurant by celebrity chef Guy Fieri.

Carnival Cruise Line ships also have the only beer breweries at sea. Join a brewery tour (US$27, ~S$36.26) and a resident brewmaster will show how beer is made from hops to bottle using seawater.
