These attractions prove that cruises are definitely not floating “retirement homes”
Gone are the days when cruises were just holidays on a ship where passengers simply gambled, ate and suntanned their vacation away. Now, cruiseliners are upping the ante with interesting activities you wouldn’t expect to find on a vessel.

1. Simulated skydiving
Afraid you won’t get much of an adrenaline rush on a relaxing cruise? Take to the skies – well, almost – while you’re out at sea on Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas, which is fitted with an iFly centre.
Passengers can book a flying session, which consists of a safety briefing, an outfit loan and a simulated skydiving experience with a view, guided by an experienced instructor.
