Activities: So much fun for everyone!
Odyssey will introduce Royal Caribbean's signature SeaPlex, the largest indoor activity space at sea. The space will include VR games for individual and group play, augmented reality walls and floors for high-tech competitions and family experiences.
Cruisers can enjoy full-sized sports court with the only bumper cars at sea or soar from a flying trapeze.
The space also will have a glow-in-the-dark laser tag arena, pitting Yetis and Snow Shifters against each other as they battle for survival and control of the mythical ice city.
Guests will also be able to catch waves on the signature FlowRider surf simulator and feel the freedom of freefall on RipCord by iFly, the skydiving simulator, or scale the 40-foot rock wall.
They can defy gravity with SkyPad, the bungee trampoline which can even transport them to a different planet using a VR headset.
Enjoy the view 300 feet above sea level in the North Star glass capsule with 360-degree views.
The two-level pool deck will offer a variety of options to sit back and soak up the sun with two open-air, resort-style pools and four whirlpools, surrounded by shady casitas and hammocks.
Nearby, Lime & Coconut serves up two stories of prime pool-front views and vacation-mode drinks. Guests can enjoy grab-and-go authentic Mexican fare at El Loco Fresh, from tacos and burritos to quesadillas and an array of fresh salsas.
Splashaway Bay, an aqua park that features colorful waterslides, fountains, water cannons and more is for the younger crowd.
Adults can retreat to the Solarium, an exclusive space on the top deck, a quieter area that features swimming pools and whirlpools, a full-service bar, daybeds and hidden nooks for relaxation.
Two70 boasts 270-degree panoramic windows with sweeping ocean views from an expansive open area living room, transforming into a 135-foot-wide and 22-foot-tall screen with its Vistarama technology. As the sun starts to set, the iconic venue at the aft of the ship becomes a multidimensional theater where a troupe of six agile Roboscreens come to life in sync with music, special effects and multitalented live performers and aerialists.
Music Hall holds a changing set list of live performances but not before grabbing a drink at the Bionic Bar. While some of the best cover bands take center stage, music lovers can dance, sit back and sing along with friends, or take it all in from intimate lounge spaces.
Teppanyaki, a restaurant serving authentic oriental flavors cooked in one of Japan's traditional styles. Whether ordering top-grade steaks or succulent seafood, the Far East dishes are prepared and served at the table.
Giovanni's Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar, Royal Caribbean's new take on its signature Italian trattoria. Guests are invited to gather for authentically rustic dishes, from hand-tossed pizzas fresh out of the oven and made to order to charcuterie. The menu caps off with a "Sunday supper" experience with a wide selection of wines and limoncellos from many of Italy's well-known regions.
Cruisers also can expect to find Royal Caribbean favorites, including sushi and sashimi at Izumi, hand-cut steaks at Chop's Grille, the Chef's Table epicurean intimate experience and imaginative cuisine at Wonderland. Finally, Playmakers Sports Bar & Arcade boasts a prime location within SeaPlex, with TVs at every angle.
Offering club-level views of the competition below and onscreen, sports enthusiasts can catch every play on the court and back at home. The bar will feature game day bar fare like buffalo wings, sliders and the signature Playmakers Burger, along with ice-cold brews.
Starting in November 2020, the ship will kick off in the Caribbean visiting destinations like Curaçao, Aruba, Grand Cayman and Mexico on eight- and six-night itineraries from Fort Lauderdale. Odyssey will then sail to her homeport of Rome in May 2021 and become the first Quantum Ultra Class ship to cruise Europe for the summer. Cruisers can explore Turkey and Greece, including UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the ruins of Ephesus, the ancient Acropolis of Athens, the classic Cycladic architecture of Mykonos and more.
