This weekend Royal Caribbean International will host a family weekend event for parent bloggers on board Independence of the Seas.
This taste of life at sea will allow families to test out the facilities on board, including rock climbing, and they will experience an exclusive ice skating performance.
In January the cruise line recruited a group of six parent bloggers as family ambassadors for Royal Caribbean, known as the Royal Mums bloggers.
The events over the coming weekend will see even more mums taking to the ship as an extension of the Royal Mums programme, with 13 ‘mummy bloggers’ and their families having the chance to explore the recently refurbished ship and stay on board overnight.
Olympic gold medallist, and ambassador for the Royal Caribbean Runners programme, Sally Gunnell will be on board to talk to the families.
Sally Gunnell has cruised with Royal Caribbean a number of times with her husband and three boys.
Jo Rzymowska Associate Vice President & General Manager, UK & Ireland , of Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises & Azamara Club Cruises said:
“Our ships are designed for family fun and packed with facilities for all ages – guests can learn to rock climb, ice skate, surf or even zip wire, take part in special activities with babies and toddlers or even keep teens entertained with their own dedicated night club and sports facilities.
“There are children’s waterparks, science labs, and on certain ships, West End show entertainment such as Hairspray, Chicago and Saturday Night Fever or the DreamWorks Experience featuring characters, parades, films and ice shows”.
Royal Caribbean also has a family parenting telephone line called the Royal Mums and Dads advice line, offering handy advice on family cruising.
The Royal Mums bloggers can be found tweeting using #RoyalMums.
