Carnival’s Dinner and Dancing

July 15, 2013 | Roger

We had the opportunity to board the Carnival Splendor in New York City this past week for a quick ship tour and a nice lunch.

Booze and Books on the Breeze

April 19, 2013 | Heidi

Carnival Cruise Line Creates Own Beer

December 3, 2012 | Heidi

He used to live in the forest, soaking up the rain. Now he lives on the Carnival Magic, basking in the sun.

That’s the Carnival story about the RedFrog. And they’re sticking to it.

In fact, the little tree frog has made himself so at home on the cruise ship that he has his own private label draught beer, custom-brewed specially for Carnival – ThirstyFrog Red. Read more...

Here Comes the Sunshine!

November 9, 2012 | Roger

The Carnival Destiny is about to get a very major transformation. So major, in fact, that Carnival has even decided to change the name of the ship – so come April of next year, say hello to the Carnival Sunshine! This $155 million top to bottom refurbishment will change virtually every aspect of this ship from top to bottom. Here are some of the highlights! Read more...
