Royal Caribbean International today announced a new underwater "adventure" through a pair of scuba mask Snapchat Spectacles. Running from June 21 to June 25, Royal Caribbean's Snapchat channel will show off underwater adventures via the scuba mask.
The mask was custom engineered by the cruise line for use with Snapchat Spectacles, according to a statement from Royal Caribbean.
"It allows the wearer to snap while underwater and will give those above the surface a unique perspective into the intriguing underwater world of marine life. Fans can #SeekDeeper by following @RoyalCaribbean on Snapchat," the company said.
"The SeaSeekers will enable all adventure-seekers to get a front-row seat to the thrilling adventures found underwater in a way that has never been possible before," said Jim Berra, chief marketing officer and SVP of Marketing, Royal Caribbean International. "Snapchat continues to be a favorite channel for curious travellers and is the ideal platform for this first-of-its-kind undersea exploration. We are excited to find an innovative way to use the Snapchat Spectacles with our SeaSeekers mask so that we can bring the underwater experience to our guests as they visit the incredible destinations we sail to. We've even taken the added step of applying for a patent for the SeaSeekers mask so that we can bring it to our guests exclusively."
The three dives will feature underwater adventures seen through the eyes of three well-known divers.
