More than 150 guests sailing on the new Carnival Breeze, which is currently on a 12-day Mediterranean cruise, never quite made it to bed last night.  As the ship made its way to Venice, Italy, Miami Heat fans stayed up until 6 a.m. local time to watch their beloved team win its second NBA Championship. The game was aired on the ship’s Seaside Theatre, a 270-square-foot LED screen, located poolside on Lido deck. Photographer Andy Newman took a few pictures of fans sitting poolside joining MVP Lebron James and teammates in celebrating the big victory.
