RCI challenged Barber to complete as many Royal onboard experiences as possible in one day, but she must complete them on dry land.

“How could I resist this challenge? On a Royal Caribbean cruise you have so many great activities all in close proximity. I was totally up for the challenge of attempting to do all the awesome things you can do on a Royal Caribbean cruise but doing them all in one day on dry land. Bring it on!” said  Barber.

Barber attempts to replicate a variety of Royal Caribbean’s unique onboard activities including RipCord by iFLY (sky-diving), FlowRider (surfing), and a show-stopping stage show performance. The Bionic Bar (a futuristic robotic bar), and Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver also feature in the series.

“My husband, kids and I all get excited by different things and activities on family holidays and on a Royal Caribbean cruise #hothusband can surf and skydive, my kids can run riot in the pools and games arcade while I can grab a cocktail from a robot mixologist (I know, what?!), and watch a live show,” said Barber.

“Then we can all meet up and eat all the carbs at our favourite Jamie’s Italian.  I can’t imagine any of us ever getting bored on a Royal Caribbean cruise!”

With Australia’s biggest and most spacious ships, there is plenty to explore on Royal Caribbean. Whatever thrills and chills a traveller seeks, they’ll find all sorts of ways to fill their days onboard the world’s most innovative cruise ships.

“As demonstrated by Celeste, endless experiences await guests onboard our ships, allowing travellers to holiday like never before. We’ve got you covered in terms of diversity, abundance and value. And the best part – as I’m sure Celeste would attest to – everything is conveniently located right at your fingertips,” said Susan Bonner, VP and Managing Director, Royal Caribbean Australia & NZ.
