Cruise company Royal Caribbean UK recently announced the cleverly titled Shore Explorer Apprentice-ship, seeking experience hunters to travel the world and post on social media.
The lucky candidate will serve as an apprentice to Royal Caribbean’s Instagrammer-in-Chief, Russ Francis, and will be able to test new on-land experiences across the globe in locations like Alaska, Japan, Dubai, Norway, and more. One of the excursions includes a trip to Royal Caribbean’s exclusive private island in the Bahamas, CocoCay. The best part? This Shore Explorer will be paid the equivalent of a six-figure annual salary! At the end of three weeks, the explorer receives a check for￡6,000 (around $7,760), plus travel expenses are covered during the trip.
To apply, you must be a resident of the UK or Ireland, at least 21 years old, and able to travel for three consecutive weeks between May and August 2019. Of course, you should also be an Instagram pro with working knowledge of filters, Stories, and IGTV, and have the ability to take stunning photos of your adventures.
