You could Win a Family Cruise…



BESTAgency is casting real families for a cruise ship commercial.

If your family is selected, you’ll go on an all expenses-paid cruise. Enjoy the trip while filming commercials and promotions for the cruise line — and you’ll get paid more than $15,000!

If selected, you’d have to travel to either Orlando, Florida, or Los Angeles, California, and the company will provide transportation to your boarding location

If selected, The commercial pays between $3,000 and $7,000 per family member (at least $15,000 for a family of three), ON TOP of the all-expenses-paid trip.

No acting experience is needed

The casting call is for real families, so all you need to audition is a photo of your family

They are looking for families of a mom, a dad and at least one child between 5 and 18 years of age

(Don’t shoot the messenger, their rules not mine)

All ethnicities are welcome. You can also submit any extended family, including grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, or whatever your situation.

The shoot will be sometime between February and May, but dates are still TBD.

The listing doesn’t specify the cruise line(s) represented, but Carnival is the only one listed among the agency’s clients.

To apply: Submit your photos and information to this email address. Here’s what you’ll need to include:

  • Two to three current photos of your family, at least one of everyone together
  • Birth date and height for all submitted children
  • Languages other than English your family speaks at home
  • City you live in
  • Passport status for each family member
  • Your phone number and email address
