The world’s most popular doll takes her signature pink style to the high seas

In 1959, Barbie® emerged on the toy scene as the original fashion doll.  Since then, Barbie has been outfitted by more than 75 famous designers and has starred in 25 hit movies.  With more than seven million Likes, she has the largest Facebook following of any doll.  Most importantly, she is cherished by little girls across the globe, inspiring creativity and imagination wherever her 11.5-inch frame takes her.

With a resume packed with more than 130 careers, Barbie is the world’s only doll that allows girls to picture themselves as everything from a mermaid to a movie star, a fairy to a fashionista, a princess to a president.  Her popularity never seems to go out of style. She recently renovated her iconic Malibu Dreamhouse® and in May opened up a life-sized Florida home, the Barbie™ Dreamhouse Experience, where visitors can explore her home, interact with touchscreen experiences and see more than 300 dolls on display.

Now, an exciting, magical departure from Barbie playtime at home awaits at sea.

Barbie has brought her signature pink style to Royal Caribbean International with a cruise vacation package, the “Barbie™ Premium Experience.”  The fun package includes Barbie-themed tea parties, dance classes, fashion designer workshops and more during the day, and a cozy, Barbie-decorated stateroom to curl up in at night.  Until the end of the year, those who book a 2013 Royal Caribbean cruise will receive 30% off the Barbie Premium Experience for girls age 4-11.

While Barbie doll initially graced the world in her famous black-and-white striped swimsuit and ponytail, she has since inspired girls of all ages on their journeys of self-discovery – on and off land.
