Cruise Line Welcomes New Ship With Former Idol Contestant
Posted by max at June 10th, 2012
The inaugural voyage of Carnival Cruise Line‘s new Carnival Breeze is happening now in the Mediterranean. Launching a new ship is always a big event and this one is no exception. In addition to customary ceremonies and first-cruise hoopla, Carnival has engaged their online following with live tweets from American Idol contestant Janell Wheeler, a cruise rookie.
Online fans are invited to follow along with Carnival cruise rookie and host Janell Wheeler as she travels aboard the Carnival Breeze – the latest Carnival Cruise ship – and experiences all the fun new spaces and features, and sees what Europe really has to offer. Janell begins her trip in Venice, Italy, where she visits St. Mark’s Square and has an authentic Italian breakfast.
Wheeler is posting images and videos, tweeting and interacting with the audience every step of the way.
On Carnival Breeze, Wheeler takes viewers on a whirlwind tour of the ship’s features, with online polls deciding which of the ship’s many innovations she’ll experience next. Viewers can also come along as Wheeler propels down the ship’s 312-foot-long Twister water slide or gets a bird’s eye view of the Mediterranean as she straps on a harness and gives the ship’s suspended ropes course a try.
