Carnival's Airship Tours Northeast United States

Carnival Airship

Carnival Cruise Line’s #ChooseFun airship is starting up its month-long Northeast USA tour with an appearance at Carnival Sunrise’s official naming ceremony at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal on May 23.

The 128-foot-long airship will visit locations across all five New York boroughs, New Jersey and Philadelphia, hovering over popular landmarks and events. The airship's first week will include visits to Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn, followed by Fire Island, Coney Island and Staten Island for Memorial Day weekend, and a week in Long Island. The airship will then spend the first week of June flying over New Jersey before ending its northeast tour in the Bronx and Brooklyn.

To help in the ongoing fight against childhood cancer, Carnival will make a $10 donation to its longtime charitable partner St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for every person who posts a photo of the airship using the hashtag #ChooseFun. The maximum donation is $20,000.
