British Olympic medallist Tom Daley kicked off Royal Caribbean International’s Caribbean Cup by taking a dive from the high board on the line’s Oasis-class vessel Allure of the Seas.
Daley, who is currently appearing on ITV’s Splash!, appeared alongside gymnast Gabby Douglas and Australian swimming Ian Thorpe for the set of challenges, which are appearing on the Royal Caribbean website and YouTube page.
The Caribbean Cup will see the three athletes compete in a range of challenges, all highlighting the features onboard Allure of the Seas. At the time of writing, the three had completed challenges in curling, rock climbing and and dodgeball.
There will also be FlowRider, towel origami, water polo, sushi, zipline and roller coaster challenge.
The initiative was designed to promote the company’s new roster of Caribbean sailings.
