Royal Caribbean will be offering the Barbie experience to passengers aged between 4 and 11 starting this January.
The world's most popular doll will be part of Royal Caribbean's entire global fleet of 20 ships next year. The cruise line is bringing the pink style of Barbie to some of its ships as early as January and will be rolling out to the remainder of the fleet by March 2013.
The Barbie experience, organized for children between the ages of 4 and 11, will include several activities such as Barbie movie night, an invitation to a tea party, a mermaid dance class, a Barbie design workshop and a Barbie girl's fashion show. Barbie enthusiasts can also enjoy staterooms decorated in Barbie's style.
Themed cruises seem to be leading the way in the industry. This year alone, cruise companies have announced voyages from music festivals (the Coachella music festival taking place in December on Celebrity Cruises' Silhouette ship) to social media cruises (organized by Norwegian Cruise Line and sailing off this October).
