As most of you have already heard, seen and read, I was away last month for an exciting assignment. Child Mode was invited to the official naming ceremony of Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship – Carnival Breeze. Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing lots of photos, video and posts on this ship, so definitely stay tuned!
The event took place Saturday, Dec. 8, at PortMiami. Tracy Wilson Mourning, founder of the Miami-based Honey Shine mentoring program, was named as the official Godmother of the ship. She was so lovely and very approachable. I had never heard of Honey Shine before, but was quite impressed with the program and what they do for young girls. During the naming ceremony, Carnival presented a $25,000 donation to Honey Shine, which pairs young girls with female role models to empower young women and create future leaders in our communities through a combination of classroom training, spiritual education and collaborative experiences. Definitely check it out when you get a chance.
During the event, journalists and media from around the world were treated to a sneak peek look at Hasbro, Game Show and Divas, Breeze’s musical production that is one of the best I’ve seen at sea. Later we dined in the Sapphire Dining Room.
Check in next week when we give you a first-hand look at the incredible innovations, NEW decor and rooms on this family-friendly ship.
Following its inaugural season in Europe, the 130,000-ton Carnival Breeze began sailing year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises from Miami Nov. 24, becoming the largest Carnival Cruise Lines ship ever based in South Florida. Carnival Breeze operates year-round six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises from Miami, visiting some of the region’s most popular and beautiful ports of call. Six-day sailings feature Grand Turk, Ocho Rios, and Nassau. Three different eight-day itineraries are offered – an exotic southern Caribbean schedule visiting Grand Turk, La Romana (Dominican Republic), Curacao, and Aruba; an eastern Caribbean route featuring St. Thomas/St. John, Antigua, Tortola and Nassau; and an exotic eastern Caribbean program calling at Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten or Tortola.
