Carnival Cruise Line Archives – Crown Cruise Vacations
Surrounded by cats of all sizes waving their paws is a bit hypnotic. Maybe that’s how the owner of this unusual place got started on her surprising feline collection. The little cuties might have hypnotized her.
“I’ve just always loved cats,” owner Micha Robertson said. “From the time I was born, I have had cats. And I’ve always collected cat-themed merchandise.”
Yes, Virginia, there is a roller coaster on a cruise ship. And Santa Claus just rode it.
Taking a break from his pre-Christmas gift making, Santa ventured down to Finland to take a test run on BOLT, the first-ever roller coaster at sea aboard Carnival Cruise Line’s new Mardi Gras. The ship is being delivered at the Meyer Turku shipyard later this week.
Imagine soaring high above the sea in a zooming roller coaster. Carnival Cruise Line is building the first roller coaster at sea for its magnificent Mardi Gras, set to debut in August.
“Whether guests want to get an adrenaline rush or take it slow and enjoy the breathtaking views, BOLT will have it all,” said Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy.
As part of its longstanding support of military men and women, Carnival Cruise Line has debuted its “Heroes Tribute Bar,” a first-of-its-kind venue on the new Carnival Panorama. The special bar salutes America’s military heroes.
“The Heroes Tribute Bar is a project that is very near and dear to my heart and one that everyone at Carnival is extremely proud of,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
Since beginning its partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 2010, Carnival Cruise Line has raised more than $18 million.
Now, Carnival has announced that it will raise its pledge to a total of $33 million by 2024.
“Because of the generosity of our guests and team members, we are able to increase our fundraising goal and look forward to continuing to support our friends at St. Jude,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
Cruise ship passengers know that the mandatory safety drill is important and necessary. Maybe not fun but a procedure that must be done before the ship sets sail. Stateroom videos also help reinforce that safety message.
Taking its safety as seriously as it takes its fun, Carnival Cruise Line combined the two. And who better to spread that big message but the line’s Chief Fun Officer Shaquille O’Neal. The result? Carnival is unveiling an entertaining and creative new safety briefing video.
Visitors are heading to the Bahamas again after the islands took a major hit from Hurricane Dorian in early September. Carnival Cruise Line and other ships have already resumed port calls in Grand Bahama and the country’s tourism board says it expects flights between the island and Fort Lauderdale to resume in mid-November.
With the success of its shipboard breweries, Carnival Cruise Line now offers another first. Carnival has become the first cruise line to can and keg its own private label craft beers.
Cruisers can now pop the top on 16-ounce cans of ParchedPig Toasted Amber Ale, West Coast IPA and ThirstyFrog Caribbean Wheat. The beer will be available to thirsty guests on all 26 Carnival ships.
ABOARD THE CARNIVAL SENSATION – Do you like green eggs and ham? How about moose juice or goose juice?
Chances are your children like them. And youngsters know exactly where such creative food came from – Dr. Seuss.
Now children of all ages can enjoy an exciting partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Carnival Cruise Lines.
ABOARD THE CARNIVAL VICTORY – I didn’t know what to expect when I went to my first night’s show in the Carnival Victory theater.
On a previous cruise, the nightly entertainment was more audience participation and that got tiresome after a while. I’m sure it was enjoyable for the many passengers who raised their hands and rushed the stage for a chance to perform or chat or be part of a game show with the entertainers.
