There’s More Adults-Only Areas and Activities On Board Than You May Think

Posted December 9th, 2016

Sailing on the open seas. The fresh, salty air filling your nose. The sight of the sun setting majestically in the distance. Cruising life is like no other, offering you the perfect opportunity to truly get away from it all. If your idea of rest and relaxation doesn’t involve kids, however, don’t despair; a huge variety of cruise lines cater for passengers who prefer an adults-only experience. That means you can have the cruise you’ve been dreaming of – fun, adventurous and most importantly, relaxing.

Royal Caribbean International’s Solarium

When you’re not trying your luck at the Casino or indulging in a treatment at the Vitality spa, you and fellow adult guests can retreat to the peace and solitude of the Solarium. Limited to passengers aged 16 years and over, the Solarium provides older cruises with a private and relaxing pool experience. The layout may vary from ship to ship, but a pool, hot tub, seating area (including cushioned lounge chairs) and bar are often included. The Solarium also often features a glass canopy, which ensures the area’s temperature is pleasant and comfortable for guests looking to soak up some sun and enjoy a refreshing dip.

Carnival Cruises’ Bars

Let your hair down and mingle with friends new and old at one of Carnival’s adults-only bars. At Alchemy, you can sample some of Carnival’s all-new cocktails or create your own custom concoction by mixing several tasty ingredients. At the Caribbean-themed RedFrog Rum Pub, guests can try a number of different rum-based beverages, or see what they think of Carnival’s signature ThirstyFrog Summer Ale. The good times continue at the poolside Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, where passengers can enjoy a Mexican party with tequila, cerveza, and even a special Mexican beer cocktail (intriguing, yes).  

P&O Cruises’ Oasis

Can’t wait to unwind and stop thinking about the stresses of everyday life? Enter a state of Zen and head to the peaceful atmosphere of the Oasis. On board all P&O Cruises’ ships, this adults-only (guests must be 18 years or over) haven features a bar, deckchairs, and amazing views; on the Pacific Aria and the Pacific Eden, the Oasis has been revamped to also include a pool, hanging chairs and cushioned cabanas. Whether you want to bask in the sun, treat yourself to a tropical cocktail or simply curl up with a good book, this is the place to go.

Kids Club Offerings

Of course, let’s not forget that aboard many cruises, young travellers have their own adults-free sanctuaries where they can make new friends and take part in a range of fun, age-appropriate activities! Many cruise lines, such as Royal Caribbean International, P&O Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Carnival Cruises and Disney Cruise Line, offer several different kids clubs, with children grouped by age, so teenagers can hang out with fellow teenagers and little tots can play and learn together.
