Happy Sunday! We hope you are having a great weekend! Now it is time to sit back, relax, and catch up on all the Royal Caribbean news from the week!

Royal Caribbean altered its Thrill Waterpark policy this week by lowering the unaccompanied guest age to 14 years old.

Previously, unaccomapnied guests needed to be 18 years old, but effective August 3, the cruise line's policy has shifted.

This new rule change allows for adults to forgo purchasing water park admission in situations where teenagers want to enjoy thrills on their own.
