What is an activity cruise?

Activity cruises offer a wealth of exciting activities for active travellers of all ages.

Want to tackle a vertiginous climbing wall? Once the adrenalin is flowing, we know you’ll want to keep active so maybe you’d like to see the ocean from a loftier perspective via a breathtaking zip wire strung high above the ship. A game of basketball with newfound friends will help to tone your muscles and sharpen your coordination and of course, your appetite! Some cruise ships even have their own skydiving simulators, so you can experience the unrivalled thrill of freefalling from thousands of feet before trying it for real. And when you’re exhausted, there’s nowhere better to relax than in the comfort of your stateroom, with its commanding views of open oceans and friendly shores.

Where can you sail on an activity cruise?

The fun doesn’t have to stop when you get off the ship. For the active traveller, there are plenty of exciting cruise destinations to discover. Alaska, with its fresh air, fascinating nature and unchanged landscapes offers activity cruisers the chance to get back to nature. While Brazil is a country of complete contrasts; city views melt into the white sands of nearby beaches while tropical islands surround the clear blue coast. Here, you can explore towns where time stands still and crashing waterfalls from a time gone by. With some 7,000 islands, the Caribbean offers endless outdoor activities. Aquatic adventures are a big draw for many holidaymakers with boating and sailing, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing on offer.

Which cruise lines offer activity cruises?

A range of our cruise line partners offer activity cruises. Celebrity Cruises boasts a world of modern luxury cruising from its highly fitted ships, stay active on board with a dance class or improve your hand-eye coordination with an archery course. P&O Cruises’ fleet of impressive ships has something for everyone, take a swing at one of the golf nets or get your pulse racing at the fitness centre. Experience adventure across the globe with Royal Caribbean International, catch a wave on the FlowRider or go up, up and away with indoor skydiving.
