A HUGE Game Of Hide & Seek Is Happening On A Cruise Ship

We all know that Aussies are some of the biggest thrill seekers around; swimming with sharks, taking on snakes, and jumping out of planes - we’ve done it all.

So when word came that Australia’s biggest game of hide and seek was happening on the country’s biggest cruise ship - it got everyone’s attention.

Basically, Aussies ages eight and over will have the chance to board the mega ship docked in Sydney Harbour, and those on board will take part in a mega version of hide and seek, with unbelievable prizes at stake.

“We know that Aussies are great sports, are highly competitive and have a great sense of fun so it seems fitting that what may be the world’s first official – and biggest - game of Hide & Seek at sea takes place here in Australia, on our very own Ovation of the Seas” said Ovation’s Cruise Director, Joff Eaton.

“Ovation of the Seas is the biggest, newest and most modern cruise ship ever to sail Australian waters, and with features like bumper cars, a Bionic Bar, rock-climbing wall, iFly sky-diving tunnel, FlowRider surf simulator and the North Star viewing capsule, she really is the ultimate location for this supersized game,” continued Joff.

Two games – one for adults 15 and over and another for kids aged 8-14 - will see competitors seek out secret hiding spots onboard, in an attempt to outwit the “Seekers” – played by Australia’s national Hide & Seek team, The Nascondingos, who placed eighth in the 2017 annual World Championships in Italy.

The last person to be found in each game will take home the major prizes, including $10,000 and a Royal Caribbean family cruise.

“As Australia’s Hide and Seek experts, we couldn’t think of a better location to play than on the country’s biggest cruise ship! Whatever your age, this is an awesome opportunity to put those well-honed hiding skills from your childhood to use, and to discover all the action and adventure of cruise ship if you’ve never been onboard!” said Alan Jones, Nascondingo’s Team Captain.

The players will have almost the entire ship to themselves - so the option to stow away has never been more appealing.

The entire competition is to celebrate 10 years of Royal Caribbean sailing down under.

For a chance to compete or to find out more, Australian residents can head to www.royalcaribbean.com.au/hideandseek and enter by describing their ultimate hiding spot in 25 words or less. Prizes include AUD$10,000 plus a free family cruise holiday for the Adult’s Round winner, and a free family cruise holiday for the Kid’s Round winner.

Entries close 11:59pm, Monday 5 February.
