For the first time since the cruise industry’s pause in guest operations in March 2020, Carnival President Christine Duffy today went on board one of the company’s ships, Carnival Sunshine.
Carnival Sunshine, which was docked at PortMiami’s Terminal E, provided Christine with a warm welcome as she met with senior officers, toured the ship with Captain Leonardo Contarino, Chief Engineer Dinko Biskupovic and Hotel Director Steve Scandale.
During her walk around, Christine engaged with crew members who are on board providing essential services to maintain the vessel and preparing for the company’s eventual return to service.
“Ship visits are one of the favourite parts of my job and it was really wonderful seeing and interacting with the Carnival Sunshine team who were excellent hosts”
“The crew truly enjoyed seeing Christine in person – it was a most welcome moment for all. More than anything, we can’t wait to begin service again to provide our guests with wonderful vacation memories,” said Captain Contarino.
At present Carnival Cruise Line is still in the middle of its pause in cruise operations, as of April this year Carnival announced It has suspended its US departures thought until June 30, 2021
