Crazy Expensive Things To Do On Board

Posted April 26th, 2017

If you’ve ever been on a luxury cruise ship, you’ll know the feeling of decadence that comes the moment you step on board. Whether you’re doing a world tour with a luxury cruise line, or you’re taking a weekend break with a local mini-cruise, there’s nothing like an at-sea adventure to make you feel pampered.

With so many onboard activities and amenities available to passengers, it’s easy to live it up on your cruise vacation. If you’re into the finer things in life, you’ll love daydreaming about these extravagant and expensive things to do on your next cruise (even if only Tom Cruise himself could afford some of them!).

Action Sports at Sea

If you like some adventure to go with your relaxation, Royal Caribbean has just the thing to keep you on your toes (and in the air!). Their Quantum-class ships feature RipCord by iFLY, a skydiving-simulator where you can get a taste of what it feels like to defy gravity.

Some Royal Caribbean ships also offer other adrenaline-filled activities with a rock-climbing wall, a surf simulator, and an ice-skating rink. If you’d like to spend your vacations pushing the limits rather than taking it easy, these extreme sports are the perfect complement to your cruise.

A Need for Speed

Have you always dreamed of getting behind the wheel of a Formula 1 racecar? Now you can, with MSC Cruises’ Formula 1 simulator. Adrenaline-junkies can feel like they’re speed-racing at sea in a model car that moves and sounds like the real deal. This feature is offered on MSC Cruises’ Fantasia-class ships only.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Movie buffs, rejoice! Costa Cruises has taken onboard entertainment to the next level by offering 4D theatres on some of their ships. Complete with moving seats, sprays of water, and the occasional smell, this cinematic experience is a treat for all senses.

To Infinity and Beyond

In a galaxy not so far away, passengers of Cunard Cruises’ Queen Mary II have access to the only planetarium at sea. Beneath a huge dome, guests can discover the stars and galaxies far off in the distance, even when it’s cloudy.

Do the Robot

Ready for happy hour? Royal Caribbean Cruises’ Quantum of the Seas ship features a Bionic Bar, where you can be served by robot bartenders. Because when you’re living it up on a cruise, watching a human bartender mix and serve your cocktails just won’t do!

Are you looking to splurge on something a little different and decadent for your next vacation? Talk to our cruise experts on 1300 769 228 to find the perfect cruise experience for you.
