Nickelodeon has assembled seven days of fun and activities for its first-ever Nickelodeon Family Cruise with Royal Caribbean, which sets sail August 10-17, 2008, on Royal Caribbean International's Freedom of the Seas. Vacationers will be able to participate in a variety of activities, including: a kick-off sail away party; evening shows, a Nick Live Poolside! interactive game show; special screenings of The Naked Brothers Band and SpongeBob SquarePants; Nick Karaoke; and character meet-and-greets with Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob, among others. Additionally, guests will have the opportunity to attend autograph signings and meet-and-greets with Nick celebrities including SpongeBob SquarePants' Tom Kenny and iCarly stars Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Kress.
"It's only natural that SpongeBob would headline this cruise since he's most at home at sea," said Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants. "What better place for SpongeBob to meet his fans than cruising the beautiful blue ocean waters. He'll feel right at home!"
Families setting sail on the Nickelodeon Family Cruise by Royal Caribbean will kick off their experience with an evening of live music and dancing at the sail away party, followed by the evening "big show" with live performances and an aerial act that will have kids on the edge of their seats.
The Nickelodeon cruise will offer family-friendly amenities and a packed schedule of fun-filled branded activities like:
Throughout the week, cruisers will have the opportunity to interact with Nickelodeon personalities. Kenny will host a screening of a brand new SpongeBob SquarePants
episode as well as a voiceover workshop to teach kids how to sound just like their favorite porous pal: SpongeBob. McCurdy and Kress will host a special screening of a never-before-seen episode of iCarly
and will serve as judges for an iCarly-themed Nick Karaoke contest.
The Nickelodeon Family Cruise on Freedom of the Seas
also includes a full range of onboard activities and amenities appealing to adults and children of all ages. During the day, guests can rejuvenate with a session in the Freedom
Day Spa and state-of-the-art fitness center, and relax in the cantilevered whirlpools in the adults-only Solarium. In the evenings, guests can enjoy live music and entertainment in several bars and lounges, a Broadway-style performance in the Arcadia Theater, or try their luck in the Casino Royale. In addition, Freedom of the Seas
provides its award-winning Adventure Ocean kids programming to entertain toddlers to teens while parents enjoy the on-board activities.
