Royal Caribbean International and DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. agreed to expand the DreamWorks Experience to a sixth ship, Mariner of the Seas, when it arrives in the Far East in May.
The DreamWorks Experience was first launched on Allure of the Seas in November 2010, with character Princess Fiona of the “Shrek” franchise inaugurating the ship as godmother. The DreamWorks entertainment has since been expanded to Oasis of the Seas from Fort Lauderdale, Freedom of the Seas from Port Canaveral, Liberty of the Seas from Port Everglades and Barcelona, and Voyager of the Seas in the Far East and Australia/New Zealand.
Royal Caribbean ships with the DreamWorks Experience have parades, activities and events based on film characters, including Po of “Kung Fu Panda”; Shrek, Fiona and Puss In Boots of “Shrek”; and Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, and the Penguins from “Madagascar.” Each ship also has a 3-D movie theater playing recent DreamWorks Animation films. Guests can meet the characters during the DreamWorks character breakfast in the main dining room. Additionally, guests receive DreamWorks programming on a dedicated RCTV channel in every stateroom.
