Award-winning actress and traveller Shay Mitchell is to be Royal Caribbean International’s new Adventurist, collaborating with the line's experts to develop a series of destination experiences for the ‘ultimate Caribbean cruise’.
In her new role as Royal Caribbean Adventurist, Mitchell will set sail onboard one of the line’s ships this month to begin shaping the new adventures. They will be revealed this autumn.
“It’s in Royal Caribbean’s nature to seek and deliver the unexpected – the adventures and experiences that make travellers’ jaws drop, their adrenaline rise and their memories unforgettable,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “When we started to think of who could perfectly embody what vacationing with us is all about in our newly created Adventurist role, Shay was someone who rose to the top immediately. She personifies who we are and our spirit – the spirit to ‘Come Seek.’ The ideas that Shay brings to the table will help create an adventure in the Caribbean that will redefine what many think of as a cruise vacation and inspire the next generation of cruisers.”
Mitchell already shares authentic travel experiences with more than 17 million social media platforms, including her immersive YouTube series – Shaycation – which debuted in 2015.
“I’ve always had a love for travel, and am fortunate to have been able to explore some of the most amazing places around the world, learning quickly that the journey is as important as the destination,” said Mitchell. “I’m thrilled to take what I have learned from my own travels and dive in with Royal Caribbean to develop the ultimate Caribbean adventure for travellers like me, who are always seeking something new and craving deeper connections to the destinations they visit.”
