Royal Caribbean first company to offer families to ‘pay by excitement’ for holiday

Excuse me?

It's only the start of the year but I'll be honest I'm already planning 500 holidays in my head, if only I could afford them all.

Family holidays can be costly, especially when you have multiple children so finding a bargain is like a dream come true.

I've written before about tips and tricks for saving money when travelling but I've never heard of a company offering to allow families to pay through excitement.

Royal Caribbean has become the first ever holiday company to offer the opportunity to ‘pay by excitement’ for a family holiday worth up to €11,000.

The price of the package is based on a family of four and includes flights, hotels and transfers.

Families who have booked with the cruise company are being asked to enter film footage of their children’s reactions when they are told they are going on a holiday of their dreams, in order to have a chance to convert excitement in to cute currency.

Not only that but the children of the winning entry will also be bestowed the coveted title of the ‘SEA-E-O’ (Chief Excitement Officer) for a whole year - reporting on levels of excitement on board, from the biggest waterslides to the Flo Rider surf machine.

Quick where's my camera phone?


While there can only be one winner six runners-up will be gifted with an onboard specialty dining package for the whole family.

This package will enable these families to enjoy multiple specialty restaurants every night of their sailing. Not a bad runner up prize at all.

Last year when we were taking a family holiday in Cobh I was very envious of everyone on the huge cruise ships so this offer from Royal Caribbean is seriously tempting.

If you fancy entering your child into this amazing competition all you have to do is film footage of their children’s reactions to their upcoming trip – and upload the video to Instagram or Facebook tagging @RoyalCaribbeanUK with #PayByExcitement, or @MyRoyal with #PayByExcitement on Twitter. Entries are now open until February 11 2020.
