“Be Kind/Dare to Care” with Dr Seuss on board Carnival

Carnival Cruise Line has joined with Dr Seuss Enterprises to bring new educational activities onboard, these are designed to promote kindness, compassion and generosity for its younger passengers. These new activities are rolling out this month across the Carnival fleet and will accompany the current Seuss at Sea program. Activities will include a ‘pledge to be kind’ activity where passengers will be encouraged to write down their kindness pledge and there will be a special banner where they will all be posted. Children will be able to create friendship bracelets and other momentos.


U by Uniworld

Boutique Cruise Line Uniworld have broken into an uptapped market with the introduction of U by Uniworld and the beginning of river cruises for 21 – 45 year olds. River cruises are traditionally aimed at an older demographic but U by Uniworld are catering directly to the youth market with later excursion start times to allow for a sleep in, late-night and overnight stays in port and itineraries that are planned around your schedule. There are currently two ships – The B cruises down the Seine River in France and The A cruises the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, meandering through The Netherlands and Central Europe. So if you are between 21 – 45 and like the idea of a river cruise now would be a great time to contact us.
