Carnival Salutes Military Couples with “Day Date” of Fun!

Cruise News – May 1, 2018

Carnival Cruise Line, which carries more active and retired military personnel than any other cruise operator, joined forces with Operation Homefront Sunday, April 29, 2018, to host a “day date” event for 100 military couples aboard Carnival Miracle at Port Tampa Bay in Florida.

“We’re always looking for meaningful ways to show our troops how much we appreciate everything they do for our country, and inviting these couples on board for a day of fun is just one small way we can say thank you,” says Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

The red carpet was rolled out for the couples who came on board for a day-long escape that included lunch and entertainment. To honor the attendees for their service to our country, Carnival also presented their Military Appreciation Salute, a tribute that is held for active and retired military personnel and their families who sail on every cruise. The salute features the showing of the colors (flags), singing the branch songs and national anthem, and concludes with all members of the military being invited on stage for a group photo.
