Just one quick scroll through Shay Mitchell’s Instagram induces soaring levels of wanderlust. When she’s not living the good life in sunny L.A., the actress, author, and budding entrepreneur is jetting off to far-flung tropical destinations, most recently a cruise to St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and the Bahamas, where she spent her days rock climbing, surfing, and zip-lining on the ship. It makes sense then that Royal Caribbean would tap her as their first-ever “Adventurist” ambassador. “I have the adrenaline gene,” she said recently by phone. “Bringing just a swimsuit and SPF is not going to be enough.”
