Carnival Cruise Line Celebrates Dr. Seuss’s 115th Birthday With Day of Fun for Kids Aboard Carnival Splendor in Long Beach Featuring Celebrity Book Reading by Joey Fatone
To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ 115th birthday, Carnival Cruise Line hosted a fun family-friendly event onboard Carnival Splendor in Long Beachfor 100 kids from the local Boys & Girls Clubs as part of the fleetwide festivities that commemorated the life of the world-renowned children’s book author. The event featured a special reading of “Horton Hears a Who!” by singer, dancer and television personality Joey Fatone.
Carnival Cruise Line and Dr. Seuss share an appreciation for fun and creativity, so to honor the famed children’s author and the world he created, the event included a breakfast with popular Dr. Seuss characters delighting attendees as they indulged in Green Eggs and Ham, red and white pancake stacks resembling The Cat in the Hat’s signature striped hat and other colorful creations, as well as, face painting and other activities.
Dr. Seuss’ birthday festivities extended across the Carnival fleet and included a balloon drop and moment for birthday cake and sweets on each ship. Carnival also encouraged young guests to write their own birthday wishes and granted 115 wishes across its 26 ships.
In conjunction with the event and in the spirit of supporting today’s youth, Carnival also made a $10,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach, an organization that helps children of all ages reach their full potential through fun and educational programming year-round.
These festivities are just one of the company’s many ongoing efforts to celebrate the remarkable words and world of Dr. Seuss. Through its fleetwide Seuss at Sea program, an exclusive partnership with leading children’s entertainment company, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Carnival’s ships feature activities such as a Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in The Hat and Friends, and Seuss-a-palooza Parade and Story Time, a special onboard character parade and interactive storytelling experience. Dr. Seuss Bookville, a family-friendly, Seuss-themed reading venue, is available on select ships as well with a Dr. Seuss-themed WaterWorks aqua park featured on the line’s newest ship, Carnival Horizon.
