Do you love traveling, taking pictures and posting on Instagram?  Well, Royal Caribbean is hiring for what could be your dream job.

The cruise company is looking to hire their first-ever Shore Explorer Apprentice-Ship, according to their website.  Essentially, Royal Caribbean wants to pay someone to travel on their cruise ships and post about their fun adventures on social media.

They will be tasked with testing and capturing on-land excursions that future cruise line customers may be interested in trying.

The ideal candidate has a willingness to travel, ability to take stunning photos and videos, is proficient at social media and has an “unyielding hunger for amazing experiences and daredevil nature.” Basically, you must be willing to try new things.

The company will provide their Shore Explorer with a number of excursions, cruise accommodations and £6,000 (approximately $7,700 U.S.) in compensation.

Applicants must be at least 21 years old and have a valid passport.
