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:
Carnival then presented a check for $25,000 to the Honey Shine Program.
The ceremony continued with a playing a game of connect4, part of the popular Hasbro, The Game Show played on the Carnival Breeze and coming soon to other Carnival ships.
The Carnival Breeze is the 24th Fun Ship and is sailing year round 6 and 8-day Caribbean itineraries from Miami.
Thanks to Carnival, Shannon Hurst Lane, and Doug Parker for tweeting photos and videos from the Carnival Breeze Naming Ceremony.
