Carnival was the first cruise line to reach one million FaceBook fans, and they’ve used this as a vehicle to share so many insider cruise tips and photos with their fans. Carnival has a strong following and community of loyal cruisers. Last week they debuted their latest promotion ‘Live the Carnival Breeze Life’, a movement to bring interactive experiences to fans and followers, along with a sneak peek of the newest Fun Ship, the Carnival Breeze.
Take a Virtual Tropical Cruise
We love getting an insider’s look at new cruise ships, especially the Carnival Breeze, Carnival Cruise Lines latest tropical-inspired Fun Ship. You can get a first look of renderings on Carnival’s Facebook page and at CarnivalBreeze.com. Get into the moment with a virtual tropical getaway as you browse the experiences available on the Carnival Breeze.
Mark your schedule — each Thursday from 3-4 PM EDT plan to take a Carnival Breeze Break, where will be online chats with other cruise fans, Carnival staff, giveaways, and virtual tours.
Follow the Construction Timeline
What was fun for me during the Carnival Magic pre-cruise planning phase was getting to watch the ship’s progress from exterior construction to interior decorating. Now cruise fans and rookies alike can follow along as the Carnival Breeze becomes all that a Fun Ship can be. The official website offers a construction timeline, updated frequently with behind the scenes videos and photos.
Introducing Mr. Breezie
A comedic new web series will be available on Carnival’s Facebook page that features “Mr. Breezie,” a character who is transformed by the enjoyable Carnival Breeze lifestyle. The Facebook page will also showcase fan photos of how Facebook fans are inspired to live the Carnival Breeze life.
Breeze for a Cause
Just as Carnival Breeze is designed to provide guests with the breezy feeling of the tropics, the ‘Live the Carnival Breeze Life’ campaign encourages “fun-atics” to infuse that fun Caribbean spirit into their everyday lives. By visiting the Carnival Breeze tab on the company’s Facebook page, fans can declare “I Will Live the Carnival Breeze Life” to join the movement while also raising money for a great cause. For each person who joins, Carnival will donate $1, up to $20,000 total, to its charitable partner, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the world’s premiere centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases.
Win a Cruise on the Carnival Breeze
While on the new Facebook tab, visitors are also invited to enter the Carnival Breeze Great Flip-Flop & Cruise Giveaway through September 1, 2011, to be among the 1,000 randomly selected entrants to receive a pair of special, limited-edition, red, white and blue Carnival Breeze flip-flops. From those lucky winners, one Golden Flip Flop grand prize winner will have the ultimate opportunity to Live the Carnival Breeze Life on a free cruise vacation for two aboard the Carnival Breeze
Following an inaugural 12-day cruise from Venice departing June 3, 2012, Carnival Breeze will operate a series of 12-day Mediterranean voyages from Barcelona through October 25, 2012. After its trans-Atlantic crossing, Carnival Breeze will sail year-round from Miami beginning November 24, 2012, offering port-intensive six- and eight-day cruises that showcase the best the Caribbean has to offer.
