“As we continue to expand our guest operations and welcome guests back on board, it is so special and exciting to also bring our cruise directors back and to finally give our guests the amazing vacation experiences they know and love.”
Carnival already announced that Mike pack would be the cruise director for Mardi Gras. For the first series of sailings, Chris Williams will be taking control as Pack and his wife Emma Nixon, a former Carnival cruise director, have welcomed a new baby. This will allow them to spend some time with their newborn.
Mike Pack posted the following:
“We have some big news. Our ‘Pack’ has grown! We have welcomed into the world our beautiful daughter Imogen Joy Pack. We are so in love & feel proud to be her mummy and daddy – Barkley is the best big brother! I really appreciate Carnival for arranging for me to come home for this special time in our lives. I’m now enjoying my time with our family and soaking in every moment before heading to the Mardi Gras. Lots of love from the Packs.”
Gary Blair will be on board when Carnival Magic resumes out of Port Canaveral. Felipe Couto will be heading the fun abord Carnival Sunrise out of Miami, and Lee Mason will be the cruise director of the much-anticipated return of Carnival Panorama from Long Beach.
