Royal Caribbean Itinerary in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Royal Caribbean International Sets Sail Down Broadway in the Macy‚??s Thanksgiving Day Parade

MIAMI, ‚?? Now adventurers can go around the world in the time it takes to
get from 77th Street to Herald Square. On Thursday, Nov. 25, Royal Caribbean International joins with Macy‚??s to make its maiden voyage in the Macy‚??s Thanksgiving Day Parade‚?? with The Voyage to Adventure Game float.

What better place for a giant board game featuring Mayan ruins, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Alaskan glaciers, and Caribbean climates to come to life than
New York City ‚?? the crossroads of the world? Transporting spectators to exotic locales all along Broadway, The Voyage to Adventure Game measures
33 ft. long and 21 ft. wide. Spectators will spot larger-than-life dice and a massive directional spinner, sending children dressed as ship-shaped playing
pieces every which way across the game board.

Nine Royal Caribbean International singers and dancers also will appear on the float, performing an original composition for the parade, titled ‚??Voyage to Adventure.‚?Ě They will be dressed as tourists enjoying the exciting destinations depicted.

‚??Now everyone can get away for the Thanksgiving Holiday,‚?Ě said Robin Hall, Executive Producer of the Macy‚??s Thanksgiving Day Parade. ‚??With The Voyage to Adventure Game families can take a whirlwind vacation all in a day‚??s journey.‚?Ě

‚??As the cruise line known for offering unexpected and exciting experiences to guests of all ages, we are proud to partner with the Macy‚??s Thanksgiving Day Parade to bring a taste of those adventures to the millions of families watching this time-honored event,‚?Ě said Dan Hanrahan, senior vice president, Marketing and Sales, for Royal Caribbean International. ‚??We also are proud to showcase the talented singers and dancers who provide such outstanding entertainment to our guests."
