Royal Caribbean cruises offer diving certification
Holidays are an excellent time to see new sites, spend quality time with loved ones and completely unwind from the trials and stresses of every day life. Now, if you take a Royal Caribbean cruise holiday, your vacation could be a chance to experience something exciting and gain a new qualification at the same time.
The luxury cruise company have become well known for offering unique, fun and exciting experiences and opportunities to the holidaymakers they take around the world. And, this is set to continue as they have now become the first cruise line to offer Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Five Star Dive Centers aboard ten of their ships.
Passengers on these ships can sign up for the PADI ‘Open Water Diving Course’, where they receive first-class training (They’re not just being thrown in at the deep end!) and diver certifications following scuba dives in water around the Caribbean and areas of the South Pacific.
Roberta Jacoby, managing director of global tour operations at Royal Caribbean, said: “For the past 16 years Royal Caribbean has worked closely with PADI to develop our on-board dive program, No other cruise line offers the opportunity for guests to become PADI-certified scuba divers as part of the cruise, making it an ultimate dive trip as well.”

The cruise company will offer a range of programmes to cover both new and experiences divers. This will range from a 30-minute ‘Try Dive’ for those who just want to test the waters, through to their ‘Reactivate Program’ for certified divers who just want to either top up their skills or just enjoy the experience.
