A magical voyage will begin this Thanksgiving as Royal Caribbean International®, the award-winning global cruise line returns to the lineup of the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. On Thursday, November 28th, the brand new Royal Caribbean float will set sail for a fun-filled family journey that will help ring in the start of the holiday season for millions.
“Royal Caribbean cruise vacations are known as the ultimate in family entertainment at sea, so it’s fitting that they will join us this Thanksgiving as we kick-off the holidays for millions of families nationwide,” said Amy Kule, Executive Producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “Designed by the artists of Macy’s Parade Studio, the new Royal Caribbean float promises to astonish audiences as it makes its maiden voyage down the streets of Manhattan this November.”
“As the leading global cruise line offering families incredible vacations only found with Royal Caribbean we are thrilled to be partnering with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and to participate in an iconic event that brings friends and family together,” said Lisa Bauer, Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Royal Caribbean International. “We hope that our float will WOW Parade spectators and those watching at home just like our ships WOW guests all over the world.”
Celebrating the fall 2014 debut of the revolutionary Quantum of the Seas, a quantum leap forward in cruise ship design, the float will reflect the adventure and excitement of cruising on a Royal Caribbean ship. While the design is a closely guarded secret, the float will no doubt live up to both brand’s world-class family entertainment legacy.
To help kick off the partnership, Royal Caribbean is offering guests the chance to book an ocean view or balcony stateroom for the fare of an interior or ocean view stateroom, respectively, on select Bahamas, Bermuda and Caribbean itineraries. Staterooms must be booked from May 1st through June 5, 2013*. Whether celebrating Mother’s Day, Memorial Day or Father’s Day, now is the perfect time to celebrate onboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.
The 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs nationwide on NBC-TV, on Thursday, November 28, 2013 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM in all time zones.
