Royal Caribbean Wants to Pay Someone to Explore the World for a Month
Have you long dreamed of traveling the world while getting paid to do it? Now is your chance. Royal Caribbean is hiring a “Shore Explorer” to take an all-expense paid vacation on one of its ships this summer. According to CBS Miami, the lucky recipient of this “apprentice-ship” will have the chance to visit Norway, Portugal, Alaska, Japan, Dubai, and the Bahamas.
All they have to do is document their travels on social media, and they will be paid handsomely to do it—$2000 per week, to be exact. As far as cruise line jobs go, this is one of the more lucrative offers. Although the gig only lasts three to four weeks, the pay is the equivalent of a $135,000 annual salary.
Naturally, there are terms and conditions, though. The opportunity is only open to citizens of the UK and Republic of Ireland who are at least 21 years old and have the freedom to travel between May and August 2019. The cruise line is also seeking a specific kind of traveler.
"We're looking for an adrenaline junkie who is not only hungry for adventure, but also has a unique ability to capture a moment and tell a story in a simple social media post," a spokesperson for Royal Caribbean told Insider.
Photographer Russ Francis, who completed an internship as Royal Caribbean’s "Instagrammer-in-Chief" last year, is one of the three judges. He announced he will also be joining the new Shore Explorer “on part of their extraordinary journey around the world.”
Today is the day!! @royalcaribbeanuk have just opened applications for an epic new role: the #ShoreExplorer Apprentice-ship programme. It's a search similar to the internship which ran two years ago and completely changed my life, taking me on some incredible adventures! The successful candidate will have the opportunity to seek out & test extraordinary shore experiences in the most jaw-dropping destinations across the globe - including Alaska, Japan, Dubai and the Caribbean - while getting paid equivalent to a 6 figure yearly salary. I am also happy to announce that I will be one of the judges and one lucky candidate will be accompanied by myself on part of their extraordinary journey around the world.
