They were up against Thomas Cook Teeside and Darryl from Thomson, Inverness, in the dance final. They flew into London Heathrow and headed to Southampton on Friday night, just in time for some warm up dancing in the nightclubs of Southampton, where they met up with the Teeside team.

“We did not know what to expect from the day but it was fantastic fun and a great experience overall filled with lots of laughter,” reports the team. “The bonus for us was meeting Louis Spence who was so nice and an absolute star – we think he has now gained some new fans in Ireland!

“We didn’t win a place on the fam trip to Miami but we didn’t leave empty handed either, with gifts including some €100 shopping vouchers.

“Darryl from Thomson was fantastic and the deserving winner of the WOW Dance Final. After the dance competition was over the teams had lots of pictures taken with Louis Spence around the ship where lots of guests were no doubt left wondering were these his new dance troupe! The dance teams were also treated to lunch and a ship visit before heading back to Dublin.

“The impressive dancing team from Thomas Cook were dedicated and they enjoyed the experience immensely. Royal Caribbean International is delighted to offer our valued trade partners fun experiences that are different to the everyday and similar to the ‘Wow’ our guests experience on board our ships. Thanks to everyone for getting involved and for their votes on the RCL travel agents Facebook page to help win them their place in the final.”
