The intern will also receive 3,000 British pounds ($3,723) in prize money and get “complimentary access to climbing walls, Flowrider, restaurants, swimming pools, zip wires, water-slides and onboard fitness facilities.”

All you have to do to apply is post a “most extraordinary” travel photo or video to Instagram and tag @RoyalCaribbeanUK and #ExtraordinaryExplorer. Applicants must be at least 21, own an iPhone, and have “extensive knowledge of all 23 filters.” Apply here before applications close on Jan. 31.
