And finally, word today that Royal Caribbean and Mattel are partnering on a new cruise experience.

Starting in January, they’ll be rolling out a Barbie cruise. For $349 a person, you get a Barbie-decorated stateroom, tea parties, fashion shows, a Barbie mermaid dance class and more. Mattel calls Barbie a “lifestyle brand”…Who knew? No word yet as to whether the Barbie cruise experience involves Ken as well.
