Having stamped its slime-infused, orange Day-Glo madness on Orlando's hugely popular (and well-reviewed) Nickelodeon Family Suites by Holiday Inn, the network behind such popular cartoons as SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer has set its sights on the high seas. Yesterday, Nickelodeon and Royal Caribbean International announced a Nick-themed family cruise aboard the Freedom of the Seas this summer. The seven-day cruise will leave Miami on August 10 and include ports of call in Cozumel, Mexico, George Town, Grand Cayman, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica. In addition to the usual family-focused fun aboard the massive, 4,000-passenger Freedom of the Seas (think climbing walls, ice-skating rink, water park, FlowRider surf simulator), those Nick-loving wee 'uns can expect visits from Dora and SpongeBob, game shows with the requisite buckets of slime, and on-deck cartoons and movies. Tickets are on sale now, with prices starting at $3,999 for a family of four; visit www.nickfamilycruise.com for more. Our recommendation to parents for a pre-trip investment? Noise-cancelling headphones.
