Royal Caribbean UK & Ireland is searching for an #ExtraordinaryExplorer for a unique ‘inter-ship’ in the summer of 2017. The winner will receive $3,700 (£3,000) to go on the following three cruises:

  • Ovation of the Seas (departing Beijing) 8th June-14th June 2017 (6 nights)
  • Anthem of the Seas (departing New York) 17th June-22nd June 2017 (5 nights)
  • Freedom of the Seas (departing Barcelona) 25th June-2nd July 2017 (7 nights)

All expenses will be covered including transfers, hotel stays, flights, gratuities, Wi-Fi, non-alcholic drinks, and on board credit.

The #ExtraordinaryExplorer will be responsible for finding and documenting the extraordinary on a daily basis via Instagram. Their role will be to uncover the nuggets of exactly what makes each of these cruises so memorable. A hybrid between a photographer, documentary maker and a storyteller, a typical day will see the successful candidate immerse themselves in the extraordinary moments, experiences and stories that take place on land and at sea, and share them with the world via Instagram.

Interested in applying for this incredible experience?  Applicants must be skilled in Instagram and have an extensive knowledge of all 23 filters.  They must own a smartphone and have an unbeatable sense of adventure and hunger for the extraordinary. They will also need to be available to travel for three consecutive weeks between June –July 2017 to regions including New York, the Caribbean, Asia and the Mediterranean.

Applicants must be at least 21 years old and can apply by posting their most extraordinary travel photo or video on Instagram with the hashtag #ExtraordinaryExplorer and tagging @RoyalCaribbeanUK.  Complete terms and details of this once in a lifetime opportunity can be found here.

Applications close January 31, 2017 and the judges’ decision is the final decision.

  1. The thing about people like me who go on cruises, is we spend our lives planning the next one. And this is truly a good thing.

  2. I am a picture nut! You can go on my facebook and see the trips and memories that i just love to capture! I would be honored and totally stoked to be a part of this, never putting the camera for a dull moment! ?

  3. Would love to do this my husband and I have taken 2 cruises both with Royal Caribbean one to Alaska and one to the Caribbean and we are looking at doing a 3 one in April of this year for our 30th wedding anniversary…

  4. My wife and I are avid cruisers who love traveling to exotic destinations. Photographing and sharing our experiences is one our favorite things to do with family and friends. I am also “blessed” with the gift of gab so telling stories of our travels is right up my alley! We are both retired and this would be the opportunity of a lifetime. Thank you for our possible consideration.

  5. Usually I travel Norwegian and my travel buddy is always asking for use to switch cruise lines this would be a great opportunity to sail with another cruise line we are always documenting and sending pictures on Norwegian sites. Our bags are always packed!

  6. I work in the school system so I have the summer off. I am an experienced photographer who loves to cruise, and has cruised solo. This would be the greatest!

  7. What a dream come true! I’ve been on one cruise before what an relaxing soothing experience it was! Something like this doesn’t happen very often and the traveling experience would be such amazing to indure in lifetime, please take in consideration my entry and may i be blessed!

  8. A single mom for many years and now to be able to enjoy my youth still to travel would be a great adventure! Truly I would be blessed to go on such great journeys n be able to share my photos with people around the world of all the great memories made

  9. This is going to be the best ever experience in a lifetime. For sure there’s alot out there who’s way worthy of this chance of a lifetime than me, but what makes me different from others? Perhaps, the innate love and passion to travel. The willingness to explore the unknown excites me the most! I’m so in love in taking still photos of all elements.

  10. This would be a 34 year dream come true for my husband and I. We have always wanted to take a cruise but could never afford it.
