It’s been smooth sailing for FlowRider, Inc. and Royal Caribbean International ever since the first-to-fleet FlowRider® was installed on Freedom of the Seas in 2006. This wonderful partnership with Royal Caribbean has brought us right to the cusp of having 20 FlowRider Doubles on 16 different ships!
The inclusion of these surf simulating attractions along with all of their other cool, cutting-edge amenities has at least doubled their family bookings and just this past year earned them top honors on the 2018 Travel Weekly’s Readers Choice Awards list! Check it out…

This past November, a few of our team members met a true cruising enthusiast named Dave at the IAAPA tradeshow in Florida. He has been on most of Royal Caribbean’s ships that have a FlowRider (or two) on one of their decks. He was readying himself to go aboard the recently-refurbished Symphony of the Seas® for the first time when he told us, “If it doesn’t flow, I don’t go!” He was dead serious and admitted that he became slightly addicted to flowboarding after his first “surfing at sea” experience a few years earlier.
Dave is one of thousands of globetrotters that revolve many, if not all, of their vacations around these fabulous ships with these fantastic FlowRiders on board, so the Readers Choice Awards come at no surprise to us. We still wanted to brag about our #1 client though!
