Royal Caribbean announced it will cease offering DreamWorks programming onboard its ships for voyages that depart on/after April 1, 2019.
The cruise line sent passengers on select sailings an update about the programming to inform of the change. Royal Caribbean reiterated the commitment to offering a wealth of family programming to its clients.
All journeys that depart before April 1 will offer the program for the entire cruise. The only exception to the end date is DreamWorks ice skating show aboard Allure of the Seas. Due to the previously scheduled cast rotation, the last sailing of Allure featuring DreamWorks show will be March 17, 2019 sail date. Following the sailing, Allure will boast a new ice show by line's Productions team.
There are 9 Royal Caribbean ships which offer DreamWorks Experience onboard, including activities like character meet and greets, films, character breakfasts, Adventure Ocean programming.
According to Royal Caribbean, the decision was made as part of line's regular process of refreshing onboard offerings.
The DreamWorks AquaTheater show and DreamWorks ice skating show onboard Allure of the Seas are due to be replaced with family-friendly shows by Royal Caribbean Productions. The Royal Promenade parade and sail away party, on select vessels, will be replaced with original programming and parties.
Symphony of the Seas was the first Royal Caribbean newbuild since the beginning of the partnership with DreamWorks in June 2010 which did not debut the DreamWorks Experience.
