Shay Mitchell is an award-winning actress, best known for her role as Emily Fields in Pretty Little Liars. She is also an avid traveler, adventure seeker, and all-around explorer, as anyone following her #Shaycation videos will know.

From hot-air ballooning over Morocco to skydiving in Dubai, Mitchell’s wanderlust has always taken her to new heights, new destinations and exciting experiences. That’s why it’s thrilling to have her as Royal Caribbean’s first-ever Adventurist—an adventure advisor and storyteller personally curating perfect days in various ports. As Mitchell said, “the journey is as important as the destination,” which we couldn’t agree with more; she’ll be sharing her ideal activities to do on board as well.

Recently, she joined Oasis of the Seas for an exciting lineup of experiences on the ship and at each stop along the journey. Before we bring you her full travels, here’s the first look at what she loved about cruising, what surprised her, and her recommendations for voyagers everywhere:

Mitchell said she would tell friends to “expect the unexpected, to get ready to experience things they never thought that they’d be able to experience on a cruise ship.”

From zip lining across the ship, to catching waves on the FlowRider surf simulator, to racing her daredevil family up the rock wall, it’s clear she took advantage of all of the can’t-miss activities on board.
