The Significance of a Partner: High Touch High Tech and Royal Caribbean Cruises

A partner is a person who takes part with another, operating in business and sharing the profits of mutual success. High Touch High Tech “edu-tainment” programming has been on board Royal Caribbean Cruise lines for 22 years and has become a staple of their programming for children fleetwide.  

Founder of High Touch High Tech, Dinosaur Dan Shaw, accredits the very successful partnership with Royal Caribbean Cruises as one of the most significant achievements of his career. “The last 8 cruise ships that Royal Caribbean has build has had a dedicated science lab. Every square inch of a cruise ship is designed to be revenue generating, and Royal Caribbean has dedicated a space for High Touch High Tech’s brand of hands-on science. We capture the curiosity and fuel the imaginations of vacationing children, all thanks to our partnership with Royal Caribbean.”

We have developed family friendly programming, specially for Royal Caribbean, so that families could participate in science programming together. When Royal Caribbean was approached in 1998, they welcomed an educational, fun experience for the children on board. Whether parents participate in the Adventure Science programs, or are sunbathing on the ship deck, they know their children are having fun and being educated all at once. 

High Touch High Tech has been able to take their hand-on science mission and deliver it to the general consumer with the assistance of Royal Caribbean Cruises. More than 400,000 kids each year participate in an engaging science experience, making learning a fun memory on a Royal Caribbean Cruise.  We are excited to see our partnership continue to grow and blossom with Royal Caribbean and look forward to be a growing part of their guests’ vacation experience.
