Shrek to Sail on Voyager of the Seas
DreamWorks characters will brighten up the entertainment on Royal Caribbean International's Voyager of the Seas Down Under next year. Children's activities on Voyager of the Seas are set to become more animated with the inclusion of Shrek, Po and Kung Fu Panda on 2012 cruises in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Voyager will be the fifth Royal Caribbean ship to offer the "DreamWorks Experience", which debuted on Allure of the Seas last year. Announcing the program's extension, Royal Caribbean's president and CEO Adam Goldstein said it "further illustrates our commitment to Australia, New Zealand, China and their surrounding regions".
"This is really going to set us apart as an international cruise line that delivers the very best in family entertainment for vacationers around the world," he added.
The DreamWorks Experience, also incorporated onto Oasis of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas, features "celebrity characters" from the studio's animated films.
The life-size characters participate in parades, breakfasts and photo opportunities with passengers
onboard. The DreamWorks Experience will be available at the start of the summer 2012 Asia season, which commences 26 May, and throughout the 2012-13 Australia/New Zealand season, commencing 5 November 2012 in Perth, followed by sailings from Sydney.
