If there’s one thing many of us millennials have in common, it’s wanderlust.

We’re constantly restless for our next overseas adventure, and having stylish influencers constantly flooding our Insta-feeds with glamorous snaps from their escapades really doesn’t help.

If you’re long overdue for a vacay, or just need a break from the daily hustle of life, there’s a trip coming up in October you just may want to take.

AMco and Royal Caribbean International have partnered up to organise a social media-centric cruise package, and it will take place on the magnificent Mariner of the Seas.

Surrounded by blue seas and plenty of sunshine and, this is the perfect weekend getaway – and a good reason to break out those breezy sundresses and cute bikinis!

Above all, you’ll want to get three things ready: Your camera, your phone, and your chargers, because you’re definitely going to need them.

Well, influencers, for one.

Aside from the usual entertainment options and outdoor facilities, interacting with influencers is a key part of the activities on board.

Meet And Mingle With Influencers

On board the cruise will be food blogger Alvin Lim of Alvinology, lifestyle influencer Maybeline Sim (@maybelinesim), and DiscoverSG’s very own ambassador, Phyllis Tan (@phyllisphyrris).
