Carnival Cruise line held a special event in New York City to commemorate the newest ship, the Carnival Horizon. The ship happens to be second of the Vista class, the 26th ship in the Carnival fleet and the 102nd cruise ship operated by Carnival and holds 3,954 passengers.
The day began with a press conference with Carnival President Christine Duffy, St. Jude’s President Richard Shadyac Jr. and young brain tumor survivor Victoria. The Horizon is special because, in many ways, it’s a representation of the cemented relationship between Carnival and St. Jude. Duffy also presented a $100,000 check to Shadyac Jr., for St. Jude’s on behalf of Carnival. On board, in the boat’s lobby, there is a floor to ceiling spherical screen called Dreamscape which features artwork from children at St. Jude’s.
