While there are no drink packages offered in your house, you can still whip up a few cruise cocktails at su casa.
As long as you have the proper ingredients and a blender, it is pretty easy to make a variety of popular cocktails at home. Margaritas, lava flows, or daiquiris are just some of the popular concoctions you can make in your kitchen.
Royal Caribbean's Virtual of the Seas, a pretend cruise experience at home, is set to begin its next sailing today and will head down under.
The fifth official sailing will head for its furthest destination with visits to Sydney, Melbourne, and Hobart... and a even manage a port stop at Perfect Day at CocoCay (if you are going to pretend, may as well take advantage of it).
The first day of activities on Virtual of the Seas include a Facebook like assembly drill, iconic buildings photo share, social media sail away and more.
Once again hosting this magical sailing from home is Cruise Director Abe Hughes. You can follow along each day on Abe Hughes' Facebook page.
With everyone spending lots of extra time at home and no Royal Caribbean cruises sailing, you might be as anxious as I am for a cruise "fix" to bring back those vacation vibes.
Whether you are looking for a fun activity to try out, or something to keep the kids occupied, Royal Caribbean has provided some fun activities you can do at home.
Many of these are right out of the Adventure Ocean playbook, with mind-bending puzzles, coloring and crafts designed to educate, cultivate creativity, sharpen motor skills, and help pass the time!
Kids Coloring Book
Coloring is the ultimate kids activity, as it can be done pretty much anywhere and at anytime. Not to mention, coloring allows kids to express themselves in crayons, markers or whatever other coloring tools they have.
A traditional way to keep kids busy at a restaurant is an activity placemat the includes tic-tac-toe, mazes, and more. Now you can serve up some restaurant fun with that PB&J for lunch.
These printable activity placemats are straight out of Royal Caribbean's main dining room, and feature a few different designs from across the world. Not only are they fun, it may mean a quieter meal experience for everyone!
How about adding a taste of Royal Caribbean to your office computer or phone?
Perhaps its time to swap out that photo of your kids from a few years ago for a background that has a fun cruise vibe (at least until you can get a new photo of the kiddos).

While we cannot visit Perfect Day at CocoCay, the next best thing is to send a postcard as if we were visiting.
These printable Perfect Day at CocoCay postcards are something the kids can drop off at grandma's house, or give to friends. Challenge them to come up with what fun activities they would want to be doing and then write about it on the card!
While there are no Royal Caribbean cruises sailing, the cruise line's ships are still staffed by some exceptionally talented and dedicated crew. While many crew members have been reptatriated back home, essential crew remains onboard to keep the ship working.
Since there are no guests onboard, some crew have taken to the popular social media app TikTok to engage in some really fun videos.
Let's start off with some great videos by Jayden Prelc, who is a performer on Rhapsody of the Seas.
If you are anything like me, you look for any opportunity to sneak in a little cruise fun into your life, so here is how to get your phone in on the fun!
These pictures should fit most phone lock screens, and allow you to easily drop them in so the next time your alarm, phone call or text message comes across, there will be a little Royal Caribbean included with it.
All of these photos were taken by Royal Caribbean.

With there being no actual Royal Caribbean cruises to go on currently, Royal Caribbean is inviting cruisers to have a virtual portrait of them taken from its private islands.
Royal Caribbean Crown and Anchor posted on its Facebook page the opportunity for anyone to post an at-home selfie, and have the digital team at Royal Caribbean create a picture of them enjoying a day there.
You can choose between Perfect Day at Cococay or Labadee, Haiti, and this is totally free.
All you have to do is share a photo of yourself in the comments on the post, and the staff will transform you into a digital photo shortly thereafter.
With no actual cruises sailing, former Royal Caribbean Cruise Director Abe Hughes has been hosting a virtual cruise aboard the "Virtual of the Seas", and its fifth voyage is scheduled to begin on April 19, 2020.
The next sailing will pretend to visit St. Thomas, St. Kitts, St. John, St. Lucia and St. Maarten.
The idea behind a virtual cruise is every day, Mr. Hughes posts on Facebook various activities, photos and even a Cruise Compass for helping to pass the time while many of us are stuck at home.
The activity started out as a fun excuse to talk Royal Caribbean, but has taken on a life of its own with so many cruise fans clamoring for some virtual fun wherever they can get it.
