Royal Caribbean Cruise Planning
Mom Approved Travel

With refreshing pools, an impressive array of onboard activities for all ages, exciting port excursions, fun dining options, and endless entertainment, Royal Caribbean cruises have everything you need for a getaway with an all-inclusive feel for the whole family or as a couples getaway for the two of you!

At Mom Approved Travel, one of our core beliefs is Moms should get a vacation too. What that means is, Mom should actually enjoy going on vacation – not stressing or spending her precious time worrying about what the top kid-friendly activities are in the Bahamas, how best to navigate Perfect Day at CocoCay, spending hours researching all the things, or making sure she picked all the right things. Mom can spend her time and energy elsewhere!

It’s why we do things a little differently when we plan Royal Caribbean cruises.

Our personalized cruise planning approach is crafted to protect the precious time and hard-earned travel dollars of overwhelmed Moms (and Dads). Unique Mom Approved processes allow you to focus on the fun and spend less time worrying about or messing with logistical details – we will take care of those for you!

Our partnership with Royal Caribbean Cruise Line is strong. We utilize our relationship with Royal Caribbean to ensure our client families benefit. Our connections allow us access to dedicated support, education, tools, exclusive promotions and more to enhance your cruise vacations.

Your family is unique, which is why it is important to have a Mom Approved Travel Advisor that understands this and curates a vacation for you that is as individual as your people are!

Why do we love Royal Caribbean Cruises?

We love the Oasis class ships, many of whom sail from convenient ports for our clients in Texas and Florida. We love the amenities, the shows and all the fun areas to explore for couples and families! Mom Approved Travel Advisors have sailed on all of the Oasis Class ships, but the Allure of the Seas will always have a special place in our hearts!

Why we love the variety of Royal Caribbean dining options

No matter what you are craving, no matter what mood you are in, or what time of day it is Royal Caribbean has something yummy to eat! If you are looking for something sweet, savory, fancy, quick, crunchy, melty, chocolatey, salty, crispy or cheesy – Royal Caribbean has you covered!

There are plenty of complimentary dining options onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise, including the Main Dining Room experience which offers a nice selection of rotating flavors and classic favorites. There is something for every taste here with several beef, chicken, seafood, and vegetarian options each evening.

Looking for something quick so you and the family can hop back into the pool? No worries! The Windjammer buffet will have tasty breakfast, lunch, and dinner offerings. There are plenty of other grab and go options on the ship, like the Park Café, Solarium Bistro or MAT Owner Christy’s after dinner and dancing cruising obsession…the cheesy goodness of Sorrento’s Pizza.

Additionally, if you want to explore specialty dining options, there is a variety of restaurants available on each ship for those who would like to taste all Royal has to offer! These vary per ship, but some of our favorites are:

  • Chops Grille – Royal’s hallmark steakhouse with a contemporary approach to steak and seafood.
  • Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar – serving rustic Italian classic deliciousness
  • Wonderland – a fun, whimsical trip down the rabbit hole perfect for the whole family
  • Izumi Japanese Cuisine – if sushi and sashimi is your jam, this is the spot for you!

Specialty dining options do have an additional charge, but your Mom Approved Travel Advisor can help you navigate which options are best for you, or if adding a specialty dining package would be a good option for your family.

Will kids have fun on a Royal Caribbean Cruise?

Royal Caribbean is a great cruise line for kids

If you are cruising with the kids, you can choose to spend all your time together as a family or you can also have some time to yourselves while on the cruise! Yes, you can have a date night while on vacation!

Adventure and fun for the kiddos 3-11 years old
From day to evening, your children can explore Adventure Ocean, Royal Caribbean’s award winning youth program!
The staff in Adventure Ocean are true professionals in their fields and hold 4 year degrees in areas such as Early Childhood Education, Science, Art and more! These young professionals will make sure that your kids are not only in a safe environment, but having fun and secretly educational! Don’t worry, kids are broken up into 3 age groups for developmentally appropriate fun like science experiments, art & crafts, video games, board games, a library, and more!

Our favorite part about bringing the kids on a Royal Caribbean cruise, is the Adventure Ocean Kids Clubs are included in your cruise fare! Though, we should warn you, your children might have SO much fun in Adventure Ocean you may have to drag them out!

Have teens sailing with you on the cruise?
Don’t worry, Royal Caribbean has special spaces and events for your teenagers as well that include organized sports, pool parties, karaoke, themed dances, ping pong, DJ training, gaming, and more! Teens are broken into 2 groups, 12-14 years and 15-17 years so they can enjoy exclusively teen areas, activities and fun with other teens their age.

Are you thinking about bringing your toddler on a Royal Caribbean cruise?
There are childcare options for kids under 3 years as well, please note offerings vary by ship.
The Royal Babies (for ages 6-18 months) and  Royal Tots (for ages 18-36 months) is a fun, complimentary stay & play program that is for kids WITH parents that includes arts and crafts, music and Royal bedtime stories.

Nursery is available for an additional charge on most ships, so parents can have a little time for daytime fun or enjoy an evening out without the littles.

What about a

Royal Caribbean?

Group cruising with Royal Caribbean and Mom Approved Travel means we do the work, you have fun with your group.


We can create a Royal Caribbean group cruise for your friends, family or club

If you are thinking about planning a cruise vacation for your large family, friends, travel ball team, pickleball league players, Sunday School members, coworkers on an incentive trip or any other group, you should absolutely work with a Mom Approved Travel Advisor!

Did you know a Travel Agent can set up a group with Royal Caribbean to possibly save money or qualify for perks?  Your Travel Advisor can handle all of the details for you, at no extra cost for a big group.

Savings and perks are great, but the best part of group cruising with Mom Approved Travel is your Travel Advisor will be the one to handle the logistical issues of payments, price adjustments and answering common questions for all members of your group cruise- not you! As the cruise group leader, all you have to do is pack!

We know you love your family and enjoy spending time with your friends; but reminding Uncle Joe it’s time to make final payment, telling Grandma to leave her iron at home or figuring out if your neighbor’s 4 year old child needs a passport is not something you need or should be worried about. 

Mom Approved Travel can do it all for you.

Royal Caribbean Group Cruises without stress or drama is very Mom Approved!
