Royal Caribbean International are looking for someone to Instagram their way across the globe...

Royal Caribbean International has announced that they’re on the hunt for someone to seek out and test extraordinary shore experiences in some of the most jaw-dropping destinations across the globe – while getting paid a salary equivalent to €118,000 per year for their troubles.

Applications are now open for the first ever Shore Explorer ‘Apprentice-Ship’, and candidates can apply directly through their Instagram account.

Building on the success of its ‘Intern-ship’ programme two years ago, the lucky candidate will act as apprentice to Royal Caribbean’s Instagrammer-in-Chief, Russ Francis, who was appointed the role following his application in 2016, and last year captured the largest cruise ship in the world, Symphony of the Seas℠.

The chosen apprentice will embark on a global trip, seeking out new land-based experiences that will ultimately influence the brand’s shore excursion programme for 2019 and beyond. Their only daily task will be capturing their experiences on Instagram, Insta-Stories and IGTV.

They will then have the chance to enjoy a range of ‘bucket list experiences’ such as visiting a glacier in Alaska, exploring Osaka in Japan, white water rafting in the Norwegian Fjords, or riding the world’s longest urban zip wire in Dubai.

The apprentice will also be one of the first to step foot on Royal Caribbean’s new and exclusive private island in the Caribbean, Perfect Day℠ at CocoCay®, set to open in May 2019.

The successful candidate will be selected by an independent panel of judges consisting of The Vamps’ writer & guitarist and contestant in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! 2018, James McVey; Ben Bouldin, Managing Director Royal Caribbean International UK & Ireland; Nadia El Ferdaoussi, Travel Writer; and Russ Francis.

On becoming a Shore Explorer judge, James McVey said: “My jungle experience taught me that you really can't beat the thrill of exploring new destinations and experiences - whether on land or sea - and that's what becoming a Shore Explorer is all about. I'm so excited to be working with Royal Caribbean to find the perfect person for this new Apprentice-Ship; someone who has a passion for travel, exploration and seeking out new and extraordinary experiences around the world. And, of course, they have to be brilliant at sharing their adventure online too!”

Intrepid travellers and wannabe globe trotters who think they’ve got what it takes to be Royal Caribbean’s Shore Explorer can apply by sharing their favourite travel experience in a picture or video on Instagram, Insta-Stories or IGTV tagging #ShoreExplorer and @RoyalCaribbeanUK.
