The Wiggles’ ‘next-level’ move revealed


In a first of its kind move, Royal Caribbean has partnered with The Wiggles to create the “ultimate” family holiday in Australia.

Those who have wished for the two iconic brands to collaborate will have their dreams come true in the summer of 2025-2026 where the popular cast of Wiggly Friends will be on exclusive Wiggles Sailings.

Taking centre stage are the likes of cast favourites Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus, Wags the Dog and Shirley Shawn the Unicorn.

Captain Feathersword spoke exclusively to news.com.au to reveal what exactly is happening — and also shared if he is a cruise lover.

“Ahoy there, me hearties! Gather ‘round and listen close. The Wiggles have been sailin’ the seas of family fun for over three decades, and now, we’re settin’ course for an even bigger adventure,” he said.

“Prepare yourselves for a tidal wave of excitement. Picture this: me, Captain Feathersword at the helm, Dorothy the Dinosaur dancin’ on the deck, Henry the Octopus wavin’ his tentacles in delight, Wags the Dog waggin’ his tail with joy, and Shirley Shawn the Unicorn prancin’ about in all their splendour.

“It’s a cast of characters fit for a tale as legendary as the sea itself. So, me hearties, batten down the hatches and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime with The Wiggles and Royal Caribbean. Ahoy and hooray.”

When asked what he loves most about cruising, Captain Feathersword said it’s like “askin’ a pirate which treasure be his favourite”.

“From the moment ye step aboard, ye’re whisked away on a journey of excitement and discovery. There be adventures awaitin’ at every turn, whether it’s explorin’ exotic ports of call, enjoyin’ the finest feasts fit for a king, or looking up at the stars.”

Kathryn Lock, senior marketing director, ANZ at Royal Caribbean Cruises, said they wanted to take their family adventures to the “next level” and create a truly unique adventure for current fans and first time cruisers.

“The Wiggles have been entertaining Australian families for over 30 years, it’s one of Australia and the world’s most iconic family entertainment brands,” Ms Lock told news.com.au.

“This exclusive partnership will enrich our cruise experience for the whole family and give them an impressive array of Wiggly Friends themed entertainment and trusted friends to guide them on their adventures with Royal Caribbean. We’re extremely excited for this partnership and what’s to come.”

She said The Wiggles choose their partners very selectively to ensure there is an alignment for families that make sense.

“What makes this collaboration possible is the shared values of bringing families together and creating unforgettable experiences and adventures; with Royal Caribbean’s reputation for world class first at sea experiences. This is an Australian first cruise partnership of this caliber between two iconic family brands.”

Apart from the The Wiggles line-up, there’s also a bunch of other experiences including bumper cars and surf simulators, indoor and outdoor pools and kids splashpads.

Holiday-makers can find out more about the new and exclusive Wiggles partnership on Royal Caribbean’s website, with the Wiggles Sailings opening for bookings on April 10.
