Duffy: We have more to come since we have alot of room to play with on this ship.

Heald jokes that the inaugural Family Feud battle will be between the Arison family and the Duffy family. Christine seemed horrified by that idea.

Loft 19 is specifically for the Mardi Gras. Not planning on going back and retro fitting older classes.

These pressers are dramatically different than any tech industry ones. Like night and day different!

Everyone will have access to it but suite guests have complimentary priority access. As well as a dedicated concierge phone line.

Gigantic presidential suites cover half of the bridge and extend over the bridge wing.

Carnival is announcing the Excel Suites. These are the grand suites, corner, and aft suites.

Carnival is destroying the journalists.

Hmm…interesting… For the record this is why you read this blog over theirs!!

Greg Dragonetti

Carnival now won and is back up. They’re just naming the destinations.

Nothing new is being revealed via the answers.

Greg Dragonetti

Answers are Bolt, the roller coaster (Chris had to double check and make sure they announced it).

Christine then passes and says, I wanna make sure they’re reading all the releases (thats why she’s the President!)

Greg Dragonetti

Rd 2: Name an attraction on the Mardi Gras that guests are excited to experience.

Greg Dragonetti

Christine chimes in with work and then follows it up with “unless you’re one of us”

Greg Dragonetti

Obviously all the questions are going to be CCL related.

“Something you do not have to worry about while on a CCL cruise”

Greg Dragonetti

Being carnivals brand ambassador I must show fairness so he points to the wining team of the jorunalists.

John Heald is here as is Christine Duffy. John will most likely MC the event.
