From a window overlooking Times Square, John Heald, Senior Cruise Director for Carnival Cruise Lines, tosses confetti to test air currents in preparation for this week’s New Year’s Eve celebration, December 29, in New York. More than one ton of confetti, officially sponsored by the cruise line, will be hand tossed at the stroke of midnight on December 31 to celebrate the New Year. Anyone can add their wish to the confetti by visiting Carnival’s Facebook page. Ray Stubblebine/Carnival Cruise Lines/HO
