Daley Takes Plunge With Royal Caribbean

British icon Tom Daley has been taking to the sea to help launch a new athletic competition that highlights Royal Caribbean's new line-up of cruises in the Caribbean - and it looks like he's having fun!

In fact, 19-year-old Tom - the Olympic high diver and star of ITV daredevil show Splash - was actually taking part in the "Caribbean Cup Challenge," an imaginative new programme designed to promote the cruise line’s latest sailings. 

Daley, Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe and American gymnast Gabby Douglas all competed in a variety of athletic challenges, including surfing (above), rock-climbing and dodgeball on board the line's mega-ship Allure of the Seas. 

And, of course, they are all activities guests can enjoy on the 220,000-ton ship as part of the amazing variety of sporting amenities on offer, notably the FloRider surf pool and the amazing Zipline ride. Royal Caribbean are also offering some special-priced deals on Allure's seven-night Western Caribbean fly/cruises this year, starting from just £1,249 per person (based on two people sharing an interior stateroom).
This new price includes a £100 discount, flights from London Heathrow, one night's pre-cruise hotel stay and the seven-night cruise departing from Fort Lauderdale and calling at Labadee (Royal Caribbean's private beach island), Falmouth in Jamaica and Cozumel  in Mexico before returning to Fort Lauderdale; plus all meals and entertainment onboard and all relevant cruise taxes/fees.
Price is based on March 22 departure.
