Cruising With Your Kids in Barbie Style
Every little girl’s fantasy has come to life, as Royal Caribbean International Cruise Lines announce the launch of their new “Barbie Premium Experience” set to be launched in the coming months of 2013. While only a few of the fleet of enormous ships will don these amazing experiences in January, the following months will see all Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships having the optional extra as a great add-on for travelling families.
While cruises have always been a great family holiday experience, with kids clubs, waterslides, and just about any food you could imagine, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines have taken it one step further, by offering this once-in-a-lifetime experience for children.
What you can Expect
As aforementioned, the Barbie Premium Experience will be available on all Royal Caribbean cruise ships, worldwide. Cruisers who wish to take part in this will pay a little more extra, on top of their all-inclusive cruising rates, with prices to be set at approximately $349 per child. While the price may seem a little much for some, the inclusions really are worth the price, making it a great option for many travelling families.
The “Barbie Premium Experience” Inclusions
Royal Caribbean International Cruise Lines has a strong reputation as a leader of luxury and indulgence within the travel industry—and the Barbie Premium Experience is no exception. The “Barbie Stateroom” is sure to be one of the most popular drawcards for the experience, with attendees being presented with a beautiful keepsake gift bag filled with all kinds of pink, Barbie goodies. Children will get to take home with them Barbie-themed merchandise, such as a pillowcase, carry bag, blanket, toothbrush and toiletries satchel.
If this wasn’t already enough, there are a number of Barbie-themed events for children to attend, including the Tiaras and Teacups Party, Mermaid Dance Class, a fashion design program and, to top it all off, a Barbie-inspired Fashion Parade of their creations. This wonderful optional extra provides a great way for children to interact on-board, as well as be proud about what they have learnt and created. Your child will also be thrilled to be taking home their very own Barbie merchandise, perfect for show and tell at school!
The Barbie Premium Experience is a great idea for a little girl’s birthday surprise or even just a treat for parent and child. It is easy to see that the inclusions are well worth the cost of this extravagant affair and, with a reputation like Barbie’s, it is sure to be a successful endeavour on the high seas. If you’d like to plan ahead, talk to the travel professionals, such as the team at Cruiseabout, who will be able to answer all of your questions about this very girly, very pretty cruising holiday.
