In a celebration commemorating the opening of Carnival’s new Terminal 6 in Port Carnival Thursday night, Carnival made a $10,000 donation to the United Way of Brevard County and provided a seven-night cruise for two on Carnival Dream to one of the event attendees. Just one of the on-going commitments to community involvement from the cruise line.
Carnival’s Chief Marketing Officer Jim Berra served as the keynote speaker for the event, which featured a fun Wizard of Oz theme with characters from the legendary film interacting with guests and the new terminal decorated to resemble the fabled Emerald City.
Responsible for nearly 800,000 cruise passengers annually, Carnival has three ships based in Port Canaveral year-round and two that call to the port seasonally. Carnival first started sailing from the port in 1990.
