Imagine getting paid to cruise around the world and post Instagram photos from your travels. Seriously, picture what an amazing opportunity that would be. OK, now close your mouth, because this dream just came true. #blessed.

With its Instagram “intern-ship,” Royal Caribbean UK & Ireland is looking for someone to do exactly that. The cruise giant is currently accepting applications for an over-21-year-old intern to sail around the world for three weeks during the summer of 2017 and share photos from their trip on Instagram. The best part? Not only is the trip free, but they’ll pay you £3,000 (that’s almost $3,700) for all your “hard work!"

For three consecutive weeks in June and July 2017, the world’s luckiest intern will be a passenger on three Royal Caribbean cruise ships: Ovation of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, and Freedom of the Seas. According to the job posting, the perfect candidate is "a hybrid between a photographer, documentary maker and a storyteller" who can document the most inspiring moments on their journey, both during stops in Asia, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and New York, as well as at sea. The ideal applicant must own a smartphone and have “extensive knowledge” of all 23 Instagram filters, which basically includes every single millennial over the age of 21.

Competition will be no doubt steep. To apply, post your most extraordinary travel photo or short video on Instagram, tagging @RoyalCaribbeanUK and #ExtraordinaryExplorer, and then pray like you’ve never prayed before. For more information, visit RoyalCaribbean.co.uk.
