Royal Caribbean International has announced a new partnership with one of Australia’s most popular TV programs, Australia’s Got Talent. The program returned to Channel Nine this year, premiering last night, and celebrates the unique and brilliant talents of Australians from all walks of life.
“Royal Caribbean is incredibly proud of its world-class onboard entertainment so we’re thrilled to partner with one of Australia’s favourite television programs and showcase the very best of Aussie talent,” Royal Caribbean International commercial director Adam Armstrong said.
Royal Caribbean International is the major sponsor of Australia’s Got Talent’s “Wildcard” entries. Contestants who are not taken through to the semi-final by the celebrity judges can be voted back into the finals by viewers as Wildcards.
The winning Wildcard entrant will receive a cruise on Explorer of the Seas – Australia’s biggest, newest and most technologically advanced megaliner – plus Royal Caribbean will also offer one lucky Wildcard voter playing from home the chance to win a cruise for two on the same voyage: an 11-night cruise to New Zealand in April 2016, sailing roundtrip from Sydney and including return economy airfares.
“We can’t wait to support Australia’s best talent. Explorer of the Seas is Australia’s newest and biggest cruise ship, packed with entertainment for all the family, so it’s a fitting prize for such an incredible competition,” Armstrong continued.
“Royal Caribbean is known the world over for its fantastic entertainment: from Broadway style shows and ice-skating spectaculars to incredible aerial displays, we set the cruise industry standard for entertainment. And if you keep a close ear out, you’re likely to hear many an Australian accent amongst our talented team of singers, dancers and musicians. What’s more, all of this entertainment is included in your cruise fare, for no extra charge.”
Australia’s Got Talent premiered last night, and will continue to air at 7pm Sundays and 7.30pm Mondays on Channel Nine. To vote for your favourite Wildcard entrant or for full detail on terms and conditions of the competition, see http://campaign.ninemsn.com.au/2016/royalcaribbean/vote.html.
