Carnival Cruise Lines has announced a new partnership with the Dr. Seuss Enterprises, which will bring the world of Dr. Seuss to Carnival’s ships beginning in 2014.
The new partnership will bring new dining options and activities centered around Dr. Seuss and his characters to the Carnival fleet. One of the most prominent features of the partnership is the Dr. Seuss theme breakfast, which will take place in each ship’s main dining room on the first sea day of the sailing. Guests will be able to dine from a menu of Seuss favorites including Green Eggs & Ham, Moose Juice, Goose Juice, among other entrees. The breakfast will also feature character visits from the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1, Thing 2, and Sam. The theme breakfast will cost guests $5 each.
In addition to the theme breakfast, guests will also be able to take part in a variety of Seuss themed activities. For kids, Carnival will offer story time with Dr. Seuss books and toys. Seuss movies will be shown on the ship’s pool side big screen, and characters will hold photo ops and visits throughout each sailing.
“Our youth and family programming continues to be highly rated and extremely popular with the millions of families who sail with Carnival, but we’re constantly challenging ourselves to uncover unique and interesting ways to further enhance our guest experience,” said Mark Tamis, senior vice president of guest operations for Carnival Cruise Lines. “We are thrilled to bring the fun, whimsical and wonderful world of Dr. Seuss to life for our guests of all ages to create even more fun and memorable moments during our cruise vacations.”
Carnival’s partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises follows a recent trend in the cruise industry. MSC Cruises recently partnered with The Smurfs to bring the Smurfs to the MSC Divina, Norwegian partnered with Nickelodeon, and Royal Caribbean partnered with Dreamworks in 2010.
