Carnival Splendor Becomes First Carnival Ship to Offer the Seuss at Sea Experience

Carnival Cruise Lines’ exclusive partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises kicked off on Carnival Splendor, which became the first “Fun Ship” to offer Seuss at Sea.

The festivities included the first-ever Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with the Cat in the Hat and Friends. Characters such as the Cat in the Hat, Thing One and Thing Two and Sam-I-Am joined guests at their tables for interactions and photo opportunities. 

Also debuting on Carnival Splendor is Seuss-a-palooza Story Time, an interactive reading event for kids of all ages hosted in a custom-created tent on the stage of the main show lounge. The inaugural Seuss-a-palooza Character Parade also took place, where guests joined Dr. Seuss characters in a swirly conga line along Carnival Splendor’s promenade.

Carnival Splendor is stocked with a selection of classic Dr. Seuss books, toys and games and is hosting special showings of movies such as “The Cat in the Hat” on the giant outdoor Dive-In Movies screen.

Next up is Carnival Freedom which will be outfitted with a variety of specially designed Dr. Seuss spaces following its multi-million-dollar makeover this spring. Fleetwide roll out of Seuss at Sea is expected by 2015 and the program will also be featured on the new Carnival Vista which is set to debut in 2016.
