Carnival and The Ellen DeGeneres Show Partner for Year-Long Celebration

Carnival Cruise Line has partnered with The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the country’s most popular daytime talk show, on a year-long celebration that will include fun in-studio audience competitions, online contests, exclusive digital content, and more. 

The celebration officially kicked off on today’s show with the launch of a fun “Watch and Win” game for fans at home in which viewers who remember a key word or phrase from previous shows can win a Carnival cruise.

Carnival-branded segments will also be showcased within EllenTube,, and other digital properties and will feature fun and engaging content like last week’s video (above) of the show’s self-proclaimed presidential expert – six-year-old Macey Hensley – visiting Carnival Breeze to serve as manager for The Cat in the Hat’s recently announced presidential campaign.  

The partnership also includes on-air integrations with Carnival-themed segments running within the show, digital montage videos with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the show, and various “surprise and delight” moments throughout the year.
