Royal Caribbean is the first cruise company to appoint its own Instagrammer-in-Chief, Russ Francis.

Russ’s Instagram skills were spotted by the company when he entered Royal Caribbean’s search for the first Instagram Intern-Ship at sea in 2017.

"For something to be truly Instagrammable it has to be unique enough that people want to show off about it" said Russ.

"It’s so much more than being a pretty setting. Extraordinary Instagram content causes a reaction, whether that’s jaws dropping in amazement or mouths watering at the very best dishes, it’s about capturing experiences that wow the viewer."

The winner of the competition, which is running in seven Newsquest titles, will set sail on Harmony of the Seas from February 17-24 for a seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruise, sailing from Fort Lauderdale in Florida. The ship will stop in St. Maarten, Puerto Rico and the private island destination of Labadee in Haiti.

Return flights to Miami will also be thrown in, as will pre-cruise hotel accommodation, and the winning family will appear in future marketing and promotional activity on behalf of Royal Caribbean.

Entries must be received by Sunday September 30 and judges will then select three families to compete in the final. They will be invited to spend a day on Independence of the Seas in Southampton and footage of their visit will then be given to judges, who will select the winning family.
