Royal Caribbean is quietly testing a brand new family activity that could be coming to a cruise ship near you soon.
The Steel Pan Family Jam is being tested on select ships, that allows families to learn how to play the steel drums while on their cruise.
Royal Caribbean's Senior Vice President of Entertainment, Nick Weir, shared a video of one of these lessons and mentioned it is in pilot mode, but "will go fleetwide soon."
A new activity we are working on, (& quietly piloting on select ships). This will go fleetwide soon. It’s the perfect family activity, and a great addition to our award winning #AdventureOcean programming.

In addition, the cruise line filed a trademark for the "Steel Pan Family Jam" name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Royal Caribbean added a mini steel drum set to the bar area of the Lime & Coconut on Oasis of the Seas, with example sheet music. This was offered without musical instruction.
Is this an activity you want to try on a Royal Caribbean cruise?
