Start Spreading The News…Presenting Carnival Horizon: The Musical Showcasing Newest Carnival Cruise Line Ship That Makes Its Big Apple Debut Next Week

Posted on: May 17th, 2018Featured, News Blog

Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Horizon, makes its U.S. debut in New York next week and, to celebrate, the line has created an engaging musical production designed to showcase all the spectacular features and activities the new ship has to offer, Broadway-style.

The toe-tapping Carnival Horizon: The Musical was directed by Bold Man and the Sea Media and choreographed by Keith Young who has worked on numerous television shows, theatrical revues, commercials and major motion pictures.

Carnival Horizon:  The Musical follows the ship’s Playlist Productions performers as they sing and dance their way across different venues of the ship, from the Dr. Seuss water park and atrium with its striking Dreamscape sculpture to the teppanyaki venue, Smokehouse Brewhouse restaurant and casino, bringing the spaces to life in a fun and lively way.

Carnival Horizon makes its U.S. debut May 23 with a VIP invitation-only pierside overnight in New York featuring a naming ceremony with godmother Queen Latifah who will also square off in a special version of Lip Sync Battle: Horizon against Jake Elliott of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.

The ship then embarks on a summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean voyages May 24 from New York before repositioning to Miami for year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean sailings in September.

Carnival Cruise Line Named ‘America’s Most Trusted Cruise Line’ by Reader’s Digest for Fourth Year in a Row

Posted on: May 16th, 2018Featured, News Blog, Press Releases

For the fourth consecutive year, Carnival Cruise Line has been named “America’s Most Trusted Cruise Line” by Reader’s Digest, a Trusted Media Brands, Inc., (TMBI) company and one of the country’s largest and most respected media brands.

The Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand Survey® is an independent, online survey conducted in partnership with Ipsos Connect. This year’s survey polled 5,500 Americans nationwide who were asked to rate products they trust across 40 different categories in areas such as quality, value and reliability. Carnival received more votes than any other cruise line.

The full list of Reader’s Digest Trusted brands is available on RD.com and can be found in the publication’s June 2018 issue which goes on sale today.

“We take great pride in our distinction as America’s Cruise Line so being named Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Cruise Line for four years running is very gratifying and reaffirms our commitment to delivering our brand promise of providing fun, memorable vacations at a great value,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.  “This award is shared by our 40,000 dedicated employees both on board and ashore, who are truly the reason for our success,” she added.

Carnival is continually updating and enhancing its onboard experience to meet the ever-changing needs of its guests.  The line’s newest ship, Carnival Horizon, which debuted in April, is a perfect example with innovations like the first-ever Dr. Seuss-themed water park – part of the line’s exclusively partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises – as well as the Smokehouse Brewhouse with barbecue favorites created by Food Network star and longtime Carnival partner Guy Fieri along with four craft beers brewed on board.

The line has expanded its itinerary choices to include day-long and overnight calls in Havana, Cuba, with Carnival Paradise, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Victory, Carnival Triumph and Carnival Sunshine offering three- to eight-day voyages that visit the historic capital.

Carnival has also invested hundreds of millions of dollars in its ongoing ship refurbishment program that has added a wide variety of popular food, beverage, entertainment, and activity choices across the fleet which appeal to its multi-generational customer base.

Continuing in its desire to be a good corporate citizen, Carnival and its employees support a broad range of philanthropic organizations.  These include raising more than $16 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the fight against childhood cancer and partnering with Operation Homefront on events and activities that fulfill the organization’s mission of building strong, stable and secure military families. Last week, Carnival Corporation was named for the third year in a row as one of the top 100 corporate citizens in the U.S. by Corporate Responsibility magazine.

Carnival Cruise Line To Offer Three Exciting Longer Length Carnival Journeys Sailings In 2019, Including 24-Day Trans-Pacific Crossing, 13-Day Panama Canal Transit And 14-Day Hawaii Cruise

Posted on: May 15th, 2018News Blog, Press Releases

As Carnival Cruise Line continues to expand its itinerary offerings, the company today announced that it will offer three special longer length Carnival Journeys cruises in 2019.

The voyages include a unique 24-day trans-Pacific crossing aboard Carnival Splendor from Long Beach to Singapore, as well as two voyages aboard Carnival Miracle – a 13-day Panama Canal transit from Tampa to Long Beach and a 14-day Hawaii cruise round-trip from Long Beach.

The 24-day voyage is the longest single departure in Carnival Cruise Line’s history and marks the first time that the line will visit Guam, Vietnam and Malaysia on a North American departure.

In addition to visiting some of the world’s most beautiful destinations, guests sailing on Carnival Journeys cruises enjoy unique on-board activities during which they can sample local cuisine and enjoy entertainment and cultural opportunities within the various ports of call. Activities focusing on topics such as photography, cooking, arts and crafts and celestial navigation, along with a 1980s-themed “Throwback Sea Day,” are also offered.

“We’re delighted to expand upon our itinerary choices with these three exciting Carnival Journeys, including an unforgettable 24-day voyage trans-Pacific transit featuring our first-ever calls to spectacular ports in the Far East,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

24-Day Transpacific Crossing on Carnival Splendor

The 3,012-passenger Carnival Splendor will operate an unprecedented 24-day trans-Pacific crossing that will depart Long Beach, Calif., on Oct. 5 and arrive in Singapore Oct. 30, 2019.

The voyage will feature extended port calls at Maui and Honolulu, Hawaii, before crossing the International Date Line, then visit Guam, and Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – the first time the line has visited these destinations on a ship departing from North America.  On this fantastic seagoing adventure guests can visit ancient temples and other centuries-old landmarks and attractions and immerse themselves in Far East culture.

The 24-day voyage will also offer a traditional ceremony held when mariners cross the International Date Line which essentially adds an extra day to the cruise.

13-day Panama Canal, 14-Day Hawaii Carnival Journeys Cruises

Carnival Miracle will operate a 13-day Carnival Journeys Panama Canal transit that will depart Tampa Sept. 29 and arrive in Long Beach Oct. 12, 2019, positioning the vessel for a series of seven- and 14-day cruises from that port.

The 13-day cruise will include an overnight stay in Cartagena, Colombia; prior to the Panama Canal transit followed by calls at Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala; and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, all home to magnificent architecture and unforgettable shopping, dining and cultural experiences.

Carnival Miracle will operate a 14-day Carnival Journeys cruise to Hawaii round-trip from Long Beach Oct. 19 to Nov. 2, 2019, featuring stops at four breathtaking destinations within the Aloha State – Maui, Honolulu, Kona and Hilo – along with a call at Ensenada, Mexico.  On this cruise, guests can enjoy world-class beaches, savor local cuisine, explore the lush Hawaiian countryside and get an “up close and personal look” at colorful Polynesian culture.

The ship will also offer a series of seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach beginning Oct. 12, 2019.  The week-long voyages visit Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas, all home to gorgeous white-sand beaches, excellent snorkeling and a variety of water sports.
