Royal Caribbean Ending Dreamworks Partnership
Royal Caribbean announced to travel agents this week that the line's partnership with DreamWorks Entertainment would be ending, effective April 2019.
DreamWorks-themed shows and events on 9 ships — including the ice-skating and AquaTheater shows, Royal Promenade parade, character events, and more, will be replaced with original productions and entertainment options when the partnership concludes.
The line cited increased family activities and options coming to refurbed ships as an impetus driving the change.
"What began with new family features like glow-in-the-dark laser tag and the Sky Pad VR bungee trampoline experience on Mariner of the Seas and Independence of the Seas will continue to evolve as Navigator of the Seas is amplified in March 2019. And we're taking our family flagships to a whole new level when Oasis of the Seas gets amplified later in the year," the line said.
"We'll continue to offer countless ways for families to make unforgettable memories onboard. Including our complimentary, award-winning Adventure Ocean youth program with expansive facilities designed for each age group, plus teen programming in their own dedicated spaces. Family-friendly thrills, like record-breaking water slides, FlowRider surf simulators, Splashaway Bay aqua parks, Royal Escape Rooms and parades and shows across stage, ice, water and air," according to information provided by Royal Caribbean to travel agents.
Dreamworks Entertainment options are currently offered on Allure of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas, Harmony of the Seas, Liberty of the Seas, Oasis of the Seas, Ovation of the Seas, Quantum of the Seas and Voyager of the Seas.
