“Carnival Cruise Line is the leader in family cruising carrying more than 900,000 kids a year and we’re excited to have been the Official Seagoing Partner of Dr. Seuss’s Word Challenge again this year.”

“The onboard program reinforces the importance of reading – even on vacation – in a fun and creative way and contributes to this year’s overall word goal.”

The summer reading program started on May 21 and came to an end on July 15. The final reading was onboard Carnival Liberty while docked in Port Canaveral, Florida to local children from the Boys and Girls Club of Central Florida.

Young Carnival cruisers have been able to log their word count with Dr. Suess through activities and reading sessions. All those who entered their word count on a dedicated Dr. Seuss word tracker before July 15 have also been given the chance to win a free cruise.

Dr. Suess at Sea launched in 2014 and has become a major part of the Carnival cruise experience. Onboard ships young cruisers can enjoy The Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in the Hat and Friends and the Seuss-a-palooza Parade and Story Time.
