Carnival Cruise Upper Deck Exhibit opens at Miami Children’s Museum
Carnival Cruise Line and the Miami Children’s Museum unveiled a newly renovated Upper Deck that is part of the popular cruise ship-themed exhibit located in the museum’s Watson Island location in downtown Miami.
Tracy Mourning, founder of the Honey Shine mentoring program and “godmother” to Carnival Breeze, along with Sarah Beth Reno, Carnival’s VP of Entertainment, were on hand for the festivities, popping a ceremonial champagne bottle filled with confetti to signify the grand opening of the newly designed space.
The enhanced exhibit features a variety of exciting components, including an interactive model of a Navigational Control Station; a Lego table where children can build a ship based off a ship model; a Destination Wall with the different ports that Carnival sails to; a Dr. Seuss Bookville family reading area modeled after similar facilities on Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista; cruise ship artifacts and a 32-foot-long I-Wall that allows users to get an in-depth look at various areas of the ship.
The renovation of the Upper Deck builds upon Carnival Cruise Line’s ongoing support with the Miami Children’s Museum which began in 1983. Carnival’s permanent exhibit is part of the 14 galleries located within Miami Children’s Museum.
