Ships cater to fans of Barbie, baseball and ballroom dancing

Devotees of the world’s most famous doll soon can get their Barbie fix at sea. Royal Caribbean, in partnership with manufacturer Mattel, will offer the Barbie Premium Experience on some ships starting in January. Children who participate in the program will stay in a Barbie stateroom stocked with Barbie-style keepsakes and enjoy such events as a Tiaras and Teacups Party, Mermaid Dance Class, Fashion Designer Workshop and a Fashion Show in which they can dress up and strut on a pink carpet. Cost is $349. Children participating in the line’s Adventure Ocean youth program, can take part in a limited but complimentary version of the Barbie agenda, including a Barbie Movie Night, Barbie Story Time and other themed activities. The program will be available on all the line’s 22 ships by March.
