Dream job alert: Royal Caribbean is looking to hire someone as its new Shore Explorer Apprentice-ship — a role in which one lucky traveler will get to travel the world to scout offshore “extraordinary” experiences all while receiving the equivalent of a £100,000 ($130,710 USD) salary.
The apprentice will sail aboard one of the firm’s luxury ships to a variety of destinations around the world including a glacier in Alaska, Osaka, Japan, and white water rafting in Norwegian fjords. All they have to do is post their experiences on Royal Caribbean’s Instagram, Insta-Stories and IGTV pages. The apprentice will also get an exclusive, first-time visit to Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s new private island in the Caribbean.
To apply for the position, candidates must post their favorite travel photo or video via Instagram, Insta-Stories or IGTV tagging #ShoreExplorer and @RoyalCaribbeanUK. They must also be at least 21 years of age, hold a valid passport and have time to travel this year.
The winner will be determined by a panel of judges including The Vamps’ writer and guitarist, James McVey. “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,” said McVey. “And, of course, they have to be brilliant at sharing their adventure online too!”
