‘If You Go Cruising On A Carnival Ship In 2017, You’re Sure For A Big Surprise!’

Carnival can ‘bear-ly’ conceal their excitement with their new Build-A-Bear program which is scheduled to be introduced to their 25 ship fleet in 2017.

The workshops on board will allow kids to build their favourite bears on board and accessorize them to their own specifications.  They will then be given a ‘birth certificate’ for their bear to ascertain when the bear was ‘born’ and what its name is. The bear will also have a voice feature and the kids will be able to record their own special messages throughout their cruise.

Speaking of the announcement, Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line, said:

“Build-A-Bear Workshop is a popular part of American culture and we’re delighted to provide our guests with an opportunity to make their own custom-designed bear and create a lifetime of memories. We are equally grateful to partner with Build-A-Bear Workshop to help raise money for the special kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,”

Sharon John, President and CEO of Build-A-Bear Workshop was equally delighted to be partnering with Carnival.

“Build-A-Bear Workshop stores have always been a destination for families, and our partnership with Carnival Cruise Line will offer passengers the chance to take part in the fun of making new furry friends while onboard. The arrival of the new Build-A-Bear Workshop experience on Carnival Cruise Line ships is an exciting example of how we’re bringing our nearly 20-year-old brand into more places than ever before.”

Prices for the bears start at $20 for the actual bear and $5 per accessories. The program certainly will bring a different dimension for kids entertainment on board Carnival’s ships.
