There are some holidays that attract the same type of holidaymakers. Royal Caribbean and Universal Orlando Resort are two of them.

Finally, live the carefree island life at Universal’s Volcano Bay, a water theme park where thrills and relaxation flow in perfect harmony. Here, the Virtual Line changes how long you wait as the TapuTapu wearable lets you hold your place in the ride lines. It’s a tropical paradise in the heart of Universal Orlando Resort.
