Cruise Biz Buzz
A glance about what this week’s top stories are in the social media sphere.
Name that Cruise Director
I stopped by my Facebook feed and saw these two having a little fun. If you recognize the gentleman on the left and identified him as Senior Cruise Director John Heald and Assistant Cruise Director Calvyn Martens from Carnival Cruise Line, then you are correct.
These two were captured on video after the Carnival Breeze’s handover ceremony on Tuesday, May 29, 2012. Congrats to Carnival Cruise Line, they are now the official owners of a brand new ship. Our own Avid Cruiser’s main-man Ralph will be reporting live from Italy during the inaugural festivities, so stay tuned (read more here).
Top Facebook Post
Crystal Cruises posted some updates to their You Care, We Care Voluntourism Excursions photo album. It reminds me of the work I did for Cruise4Haiti and makes me want to sign up for another voluncruise. (Have you ever donated some of your vacation to help a cause? Let me know. I love a good story.)
