New 'Seuss At Sea' Programme On Carnival Splendor

Carnival Cruise Lines has debuted its exclusive partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises in grand style aboard Carnival Splendor with a variety of the classic, fun activities inspired by the amazing world and words of Dr. Seuss.

The programme will eventually be rolled out fleet-wide but made a big impression aboard the Splendor on its most recent sailing from New York to the Bahamas.
 
The festivities included the first-ever Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with the Cat in the Hat and Friends, where both the young and young-at-heart enjoyed food straight from Dr. Seuss’s imagination – green eggs and ham, colourful fruit and pancake stacks, funky French toast, as well as traditional breakfast favourites, all served by wait staff in Dr. Seuss-inspired uniforms. Popular characters such as the Cat in the Hat, Thing One and Thing Two, and Sam-I-Am joined guests for fun interactions and photo opportunities.

Also debuting on Carnival Splendor was Seuss-a-palooza Story Time, an interactive reading event for kids of all ages, hosted in a vibrant, custom-created tent on the stage of the main show lounge. Equally popular was the inaugural Seuss-a-palooza Character Parade where guests joined Dr. Seuss characters in a swirly conga line along the promenade.

The ship is also stocked with a selection of classic Dr. Seuss books, toys and games and is hosting special showings of beloved movies such as “The Cat in the Hat” on the giant outdoor Dive-In Movies screen.

Gerry Cahill, Carnival president and CEO, said: “We’re delighted to debut the Seuss at Sea program, which is sure to amuse and delight kids of all ages while providing parents and their children an opportunity to participate in fun and playful activities together."

Next up in the fleet roll-out is Carnival Freedom, which will be outfitted with a variety of specially designed Dr. Seuss spaces following its multi-million-dollar makeover this spring. The programme is expected to be complete by 2015 and will also be featured on the new Carnival Vista, which is set to debut in 2016.
