Kicks Off Sweepstakes, Continues #ChooseFun
Social Media Campaign Benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®
MIAMI (Feb. 1, 2019) – When one AirShip flight
ends, another begins! After completing its wildly successful month-long tour of
California to celebrate the arrival of the new Carnival Panorama to
the West Coast, Carnival Cruise Line's #ChooseFun AirShip is extending its
aerial journey taking to the skies over Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Arizona.
The Carnival AirShip will begin a five-day
tour of Las Vegas kicking off on Saturday, Feb. 2 with aerial visits to major
attractions and iconic hotspots including the Las Vegas Strip as well as travel
agent events. The AirShip will also delight football fans who will be in town
to check out The Big Game on Sunday.
On Wednesday, Feb. 13, the AirShip will
arrive in Phoenix for a five-day flyover of the city's hottest areas and venues
through Sunday, Feb. 17.
In conjunction with the AirShip's extended
West Coast tour, Carnival is hosting a sweepstakes where consumers have a
chance to win a free cruise as well as additional prizes each week when they
enter at carnival.com/choosefun.
And there's never an end date to raising
money for a great cause – continuing the charity component of the AirShip's
month-long flyover, for anyone who takes a picture of the AirShip and posts it
on social media with the hashtag #ChooseFun, Carnival will make a $2 donation
to its longtime charity partner St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® up to a
maximum donation of $20,000.
"Fans everywhere can't get enough of
the Carnival AirShip and neither can we!" said Christine Duffy, president of
Carnival Cruise Line. "If there's anyone who knows how to Choose Fun, it's
Carnival, and what better way to do that than to continue the AirShip's
Last month, the AirShip
made its West Coast debut gaining the attention of tens of thousands of
consumers across California in anticipation of the arrival of Carnival Panorama
to Long Beach, Calif. in
December – the first new Carnival ship homeported on the West Coast in 20 years
and the world's first ship to have a trampoline park at sea, in partnership
with Sky Zone. Carnival Panorama will debut with a special three-day inaugural
cruise from Long Beach on Dec. 11, 2019, followed by the launch of year-round,
seven-day Mexican Riviera sailings on Dec. 14, 2019. The ship joins Carnival
Imagination and Carnival Inspiration to carry upwards of 600,000 guests
annually from the West Coast – more than any other cruise operator.
