Carnival’s Announcement-Quasi Live Blog Greg Dragonetti October 3, 2011 All Cruise Lines 3 Comments According to Carnival’s PR Puppet in an offensive video just posted on youtube, the event will be later today at an NYC club. Given Carnival’s past history of letdowns, I don’t believe anything big will happen, But if they want to keep up with the media headliners, NCL and RCCL, they better plan something here. The rumors trickling out are that its going to be about new entertainment options onboard their ships. Time will tell. 1:09pm- Other rumors have the Carnival liberty Getting a Serenity Deck 1:12pm- And its begun 1:15pm- CEO Gerry Cahill and John Heald is on the stage 1:18pm- Supposedly Guy Fieri and George Lopez are there….don’t quote me on that one 1:21pm- Cahill is discussing the Magic 1:23pm- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZK7qGBvMRw&feature=youtu.be 1:25pm- Fun Ship 2.0 is here!
