Carnival Debuts 2014 'Commitment Series' of Travel Agent Webinars

Carnival brought back its “Commitment Series” of travel agent webinars with the latest installment featuring a conversation between Joni Rein, Carnival’s VP of worldwide sales and Mark Tamis, the line’s SVP of guest operations. 

In the new webinar, which debuted April 9, Tamis highlighted the company’s latest on-board innovations, including the many features that are being added as a result of the $500 million Fun Ship 2.0 product enhancement program.

In the webinar, Tamis details the new Carnival Live concert series, the Seuss at Sea youth program developed in partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, and the American TABLE and American FEAST dining initiative. He also shares personal insight into a charity he founded with his daughter called Dads for Giving.

Hosted on the line’s travel agent Internet portal,, the “Commitment Series” was introduced last year. Each webinar includes an interview with Rein and a member of the line’s senior management team. Previous webinars highlighted the line’s marketing and advertising campaigns, as well as the new Carnival Service Values hospitality training initiative. Beginning with the Tamis webinar, Rein will interview a Carnival executive each month.
