Many of Carnival Cruise Line’s 50th Birthday merchandise items which have proven popular with sailing guests are now available for purchase online, as well as select other offerings at shop.carnival.com.
“When we created the 50th Birthday retail collection, we were confident our guests would love the new and elevated styles, but the positive response has been absolutely overwhelming. Items we planned to sell over the course of weeks sold out in a day,” said Jeremy Schiller, vice president of retail operations for Carnival Cruise Line. “The expanded offerings now available in our online retail shop are a celebration of this success and an opportunity for our guests to still purchase the items they love while on land.”
Designed to complement Carnival’s year-long birthday celebration, the 50th Birthday retail collection first launched in early March with a commemorative coin set that was released exclusively on Brand Ambassador John Heald’s Facebook page and sold out within minutes of posting, while garnering thousands of positive comments. Next up, an array of different commemorative items were sent to many of Carnival’s ships at sea and saw just as much popularity and demand from our guests.
Giving guests the opportunity to purchase the items they love online, shop.carnival.com currently features a variety of special birthday items, including the 50th Birthday edition Monopoly game with Carnival-themed specialized tokens, that were offered on the Sailabrations cruises.
Over the coming weeks, Carnival will add new items, including 50th Birthday apparel, to the site through mid-April. Some special-edition collectibles that will be sold exclusively online and other products soon to be released include:
- “Piece of History” collection – limited-edition and numbered brass pin and keychain collection melded from the handrails of the original 1972 TSS Mardi Gras, Carnival’s first ship.
- Carnival Celebration crystal glass ship model – this is the first time guests can purchase a ship model of the line’s newest ship, Carnival Celebration, debuting from PortMiami this November.
- Singing Funnel Hat – the classic Funnel hat revamped and kicked up a notch with added music and a battery pack, so the funnel can clap to the beat.
- Sensation Mug – the last opportunity for guests to buy a Carnival Sensation-themed collectible before the ship leaves the fleet.
The 50th Birthday retail items are available on shop.carnival.com for a limited time and can be shipped anywhere within the U.S.
