Adventure Ocean (kids facilities and programs)
Adventure Ocean (neighborhood) is the ship’s kids complex on 2 levels. It has all 6 (indoor) play areas for supervised, age-appropriate activities for 4 age groups – from 6-month babies to 11 year-olds. Each age group has its own room and dedicated staff. All youth programs are complimentary. Adventure Ocean’s operational hours are - on seadays (9-12 am, 2-5 pm, 7-10 pm) and on port days (9 am - 5 pm, 7-10 pm, lunch included). Dinners (chaperoned) are between 5-7 pm at the Windjammer buffet. The “Late Night Party Zone” babysitting (between 10 pm - 2 am /for kids 3-11 yo) costs US$7 per kid per hour. Among the signature events here are Dreamworks characters appearances (4-5 times on 7-night cruise itineraries).
Both levels of the complex are in the ship’s interior (without windows). This means better security/safety but also no natural light and outdoor playgrounds. Parents must sign their kids in and out each time they visit the Adventure Ocean. Each kid is issued a wristband (indicating muster station) that must be worn at all times.

The RCI’s “BABIES 2 GO” service allows pre-ordering Huggies products (diapers, wipes, cream) and Gerber (organic baby food) delivered to the cruise cabin/suite upon arrival and also throughout the Royal Caribbean cruise.
