There’s a shipboard moving movement afoot. Carnival, for example, offers SportSquare, which is a rope course that lets adventure-seekers challenge their courage high above the shimmering sea – in a secure safety harness, of course. For those who do not harbor such lofty ambitions, there is gym equipment, a basketball court, Foosball, Ping-Pong and mini-golf. 

Modern ships have taken a quantum leap from bowling and shuffleboard. Today’s active cruisers have adrenalin-rush options such as surfing, rock-climbing, rappelling, and playing virtual golf at some of the world’s most famous and challenging courses.

Royal Caribbean cruisers enjoy the amenities of SeaPlex, which the line calls the largest indoor active space at sea. Activities include roller skating, bumper cars and a circus school. 

The cruise line also offers scuba diving in the pool, a zip line, and FlowRider, a 40-foot-long surf simulator that lets you hang ten then take five. For the less adventurous, there’s the North Star, a capsule that offers 360-degree views 300 feet above sea level – think of a pirate-style London Eye.
