Royal Caribbean is offering guests the option to visit behind-the-scenes operations spaces and meet shipboard staff members on an escorted tour during their Royal Caribbean vacation.

The All Access Tour is available fleet-wide aboard each ship’s first July 2011 sailing. “Our guests have always inquired into what happens behind the scenes and below deck,” says senior vice president of Hotel Operations Lisa Bauer. “We are glad to offer these really special guest tours into areas that are normally not accessible, escorted by staff members who explain the complex workings of running of the world’s largest and most innovative cruise ships.”

The tour includes visits to the ship’s bridge, galley, backstage to the main theater, engine control room, and more. At least one All Access Tour will be offered on itineraries shorter than seven nights, and two tours will be offered aboard an itinerary of seven nights or longer. Additional tours may be added based on demand.

The tours last 3.5 hours at a cost of $150 per guest, and can be purchased onboard with the Concierge, Crown & Anchor Society Loyalty Ambassador, or at guest relations.
