Kathie Lee Gifford

She’s back! The former face of Carnival Cruise Line has got all cosy again with the Miami based cruise line with her new “GIFFT” Collection of wines.

Kathie Lee Gifford offered a wine tasting event on the Carnival Breeze while it was in PortMiami on Sunday, January 11th. The new collection of GIFFT wines are now available to purchase throughout the entire fleet. The wines from Monterey County have been highly rated from tasting ratings and Guests onboard can enjoy their dining experience even further.

“I can’t tell you how exciting it is for me to be back on board with Carnival!” said Gifford. “It’s like coming home again—this time bearing great wines!”

Just in case you’re not familiar with Kathie Lee Gifford then take a look at this old Carnival commercial from 1985 which was among the first TV ad campaign within the cruise industry:

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome back Kathie Lee, whose upbeat and spirited personality to this day reflects the essence of the Carnival brand,” said Eddie Allen, Carnival Cruise Line Vice President, Beverage Operations. “For many people, wine is an integral part of a truly exceptional vacation experience, and the GIFFT Collection is a great addition to our onboard wine offerings.”

Gifford can now be found on popular American TV show “Today” and NBC News. If any cruisers have given the wines a try then let us know what you think in the comments below.
