Carnival Cruise has completed National Ice Cream month in the best way possible onboard one of its cruise ships.
What’s better than a “FunDay Sundae” to complete the end of National Ice Cream month onboard Carnival Ecstasy. 40 kids ranging from 11-16 years old enjoyed a fun day on the Carnival cruise ship which included time in the waterpark, a magic show and of course an ice cream sundae bar.
The kids lucky enough to enjoy themselves on board the 2,052 passenger vessel was from Connie Maxwell Children’s Home in Charleston, South Carolina. As part of the event, the cruise line donated $20,000 to the children’s organization.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“Charleston is a very important year-round embarkation port for Carnival, and we like to demonstrate our appreciation for our homeport communities by supporting vital local organizations.”
“For 125 years, the Connie Maxwell Children’s Home has offered hope and healing to this community and it was our great pleasure to welcome the center’s children on board and provide them with an enjoyable day and special reason to celebrate.”
The event took place when Carnival Ecstasy was docked at its home port in Charleston, South Carolina. The 70,300 gross ton vessel is based out of the port sailing 4-day to 12-day cruises to the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Caribbean. Around 150,000 people each year cruise with Carnival Cruise Line from Port of Charleston and the larger Carnival Sunshine will offer 4-day to 7-day itineraries later in the year.
