Post What is the Quest game I hear about on Royal Caribbean?

Can anyone tell me what the Quest Game is? I hear it's so funny.

I would tell you. But then I would have to kill you. And that would just be messy.

BTW - it's on some NCL ships too. We participated on the Sun this past January. And it's definitely NOT to be missed if you are "of age" and it's offered on your sailing.

Just be relaxed that night - a drink or two in you won't hurt, and go in ready to have a great time. Once you experience it you'll see why none of us can/will tell you. It is worth it though and guaranteed to have you laughing away.

I was looking this up for my relatives and came across a good description of it on youtube. Be sure to watch the video!

The rules of the game. Teams of 4, one person must be a male. Basically it's a form of a scavenger hunt - but with a twist. Points are awarded in this form - 1st person to arrive with the items gets 10 points. 2nd person - 5 points. 3rd person - 3 points. Everyone after that get's 1 point. When you arrive to the cruise director (the one on the microphone), you are to present your number and show him the items. Once that item is pronounced 'CLOSED', no more can be accepted.

I am a cruising addict... and have never regretted it for one moment.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.

Default Shy DH

I would lone to participate in The Quest on our upcoming cruise on RCCL Mariner, but my shy DH will not want to participate. Can we still go without him being dragged up on stage or being pressured to remove clothing etc? I would like to experience it, but don't want him to be uncomfortable.
