Celebrate Freedom February 14, 2015

 Carnival's Celebrate Freedom
February 14, 2015
Galveston, Texas

Just The Facts:
Ship:  Carnival Freedom
Ship Captain: Agostino Fazio
Master of Ceremonies: John Heald
Featured Entertainer:  Martina McBride

I am very fortunate that is the third special event I have been able to attend in association with a Carnival Ship deployment. Carnival Magic, Carnival Sunshine, and now the Carnival Freedom.

Carnival partnered with Operation Homefront to make space available for U.S. veterans and their families for a day/night of special activities.  They were treated to a specially decorated ship and a wonderful concert by Martina McBride (photo above) in addition to all the wonderful shipboard activities.  Most of the the veteran families had young children and Carnival even furnished the Night Owl child care so that the parents could enjoy the various music venues, production shows, or just an evening to themselves in a club or dance venue. 

I know the Veteran families were very appreciative of this unique opportunity…a special thanks to Carnival Cruise Lines.  Also welcome to Texas: Carnival Freedom, we are glad to have you!
