Carnival Breeze Officially Named

The Carnival Breeze had its official naming ceremony yesterday and was officially christened.  Yes you are right, she has been sailing since June but now she is officially christened.  It was hard to find if any other cruise ships waited for six months before getting their naming ceremony but Carnival wanted to wait till she was home.  Doug Parker of Cruise Radio tweeted his summary of what Gerry Cahill said about waiting:

Tracy Wilson Mourning, the ships godmother, broke the bottle of champagne over the hull after naming the ship. Tracy then spoke of her Honey Shine Mentoring Program where girls learn about health, nutrition and, character development. Shannon Hurst Lane tweeted a moving quote from Tracy Wilson Mourning:

‏@CajunMama: “Anything is possible. You just have to believe in yourself.” ~ Tracy Wilson Mourning, Godmother Carnival Breeze #BreezeNaming

Carnival then presented a check for $25,000 to the Honey Shine Program.
