To celebrate “World Conga Day” Carnival Cruise Line has created the world’s longest conga line at sea.
The world’s longest conga line has been created onboard Carnival cruise ships as part of the first-ever “World Conga Day” down under in Australia. The event began on October 10 and the conga was spread across 25 Carnival ships including Carnival Sensation and Carnival legend where the conga met up. The conga finally came to end onboard Carnival Spirit on October 17 in Sydney.
Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Australia and NZ Jennifer Vandekreeke, said:
“We’re delighted that Carnival guests and crew from around the globe have joined together for a bit of fun to celebrate our five year anniversary in Australia. Since the arrival of Carnival Spirit in 2012, more than 750,000 Australians and Kiwis have enjoyed the fun of a Carnival Cruise. We’re excited by what the next five years will bring, especially given by 2020, we will have two ships sailing year-round from Australia.”
The Conga event on Carnival Cruise Line lasted a week across 13 countries, 7 time zones, and spanning nearly 10,000 miles. Over 60,000 Carnival guests took part in the Conga.
Captain Vittorio Marchi, Captain of the Australian based Carnival Spirit added:
“As our first international port, Australia has always been close to my heart. Sailing here for five years is a huge milestone not only for myself but the entire Australia-based crew, so I am thrilled to lead Carnival Spirit into the beautiful Sydney Harbour as part of this global celebration.”
Carnival wants World Conga Day not just to be enjoyed by its guests but also around the world. It’s a way of letting go your worries, let go and have some fun.
Carnival Spirit played center part by ending the Carnival Conga event at its home port of Sydney Australia. The port has become the Miami based cruise lines first home base outside the U.S. and is also a major part of expansion plans. Two ships will be sailing year round from Australia from 2020.
