Carnival Cruise Lines

Check out the "Fun Ship Island" Site
Carnival Unveils Fun Ship Island Virtual Experience

Wheeee....... Want to slide down a water chute?  Or, perhaps you'd like to see what a suite looks like on a Carnival Ship? How about checking out the dining room or a four-by-four adventure ashore? All this and more is possible online at Carnival Cruise Lines' new FunShipIsland.com virtual site: www.funshipisland.com.
 

Through simple, interactive navigation, you may explore, play and experience a Carnival cruise without stepping foot on a ship or even putting down a deposit. So yes, you might experience the line's Twister Waterslide on the Lido deck, take an adventurous ride on the Rhino 4x4 Jeep, swim with dolphins, relax at the spa or even gamble in a virtual casino.

 

"These days more travelers are turning to the Internet to research their vacation options," stressed Christine Arnholt, Carnival's vice president of marketing services. "By creating a brand-immersive, interactive cruise experience, FunShipIsland.com makes the process fun and engaging for travelers."

 

Among other FunShipIsland.com features are a downloadable screen saver, custom-created ring tones for mobile phones, downloadable music for iPods and personalization for each visitor. While interacting with FunShipIsland.com, quick, optional questions/answers and individual preferences are gathered for each visitor, creating a basis for a "Fun Ship" cruise recommendation.

We took a stroll 'round the site and generally liked it. We certainly admired its creative style. Yes, we had the site "stick" and not finish loading the 4-by-4 tour but you may not have that problem. We sauntered into the piano bar and told the piano player our name and he sang a song that included that name. Technology is amazing!
 
We also liked the stateroom tours and the chance for online visitors to opt for active options or more pampering, relaxing activities, based on their own cruise style. 
 
But what do you think? Take a look at
FunShipIsland.com and then go to the feedback form on our Web site and Tell Us What YOU think! We'll compile the feedback results and report the overall perspective of readers on our site.
