First off…I absolutely love this Royal Caribbean commercial for their cruise lines. When I first saw it, I immediately wanted to be on a cruise and out of this cold weather (who wouldn’t want to be?!). Anyway, I started to realize that the people in the commercials were getting “phone calls from the sea” through seashells…otherwise known as the “shellphone” in these commercials. This article is from December when the commercials first appeared. Its underlying message is to take a break from all of our smartphones and technology and simply enjoy the beauty of a vacation. Should we take a break from technology now and then? Maybe it would help us all relax more.

Also, if you want to watch the several commercials, just type into youtube “the sea is calling royal caribbean” and enjoy!
