Halloween is just around the corner and to celebrate, Carnival Cruise Lines is creating a massive, 70-foot-long “Fun Ship”-shaped display comprised of more than 500 carved jack-o-lanterns at Boo at the Zoo taking place Oct. 19, 20, 26, and 27, 2012, in New Orleans.
The creative display is part of the line’s sponsorship of the annual “spooktacular” event, which attracts thousands of families who will enjoy trick-or-treat houses, a Ghost Train, haunted houses, fun games with prizes and entertainment, children’s decoration stations, and more.
Carnival’s sponsorship of the event underscores the line’s commitment to the New Orleans community and the company’s role as the city’s number one cruise operator. Carnival carries 340,000 passengers annually on its two ships based year-round in New Orleans. Carnival Elation offers four and five-day Mexico cruises, and Carnival Conquest operates seven-day Caribbean voyages. Carnival Conquest is currently undergoing a two-week dry dock in The Bahamas that will add a variety of dining, bar and entertainment innovations as part of the “Fun Ship 2.0” product enhancement initiative.
Many of the pumpkins included within the Boo at the Zoo display feature designs showcasing various elements of “Fun Ship 2.0” with depictions of the RedFrog Rum Bar, the EA SPORTS Bar, and Guy’s Burger Joint developed in tandem with Food Network personality Guy Fieri, as well as the iconic winged funnel that adorns all Carnival ships.
