Carnival Cruise Line’s Great Barrier Reef cruise is providing the perfect setting for Carnival Legend Captain Giussepe Gazzano’s reunion with his family, who have flown from Italy to join him onboard for Christmas.
After many years as a seafarer, Captain Giussepe Gazzano knows what it is like to spend Christmas Day at sea, but this Christmas cruise is doubly special, as it times with a family get-together for his Brisbane-born wife, Anne Louise.
On Sunday, Anne Louise and children, Alessia aged nine and Giacomo, who turns eight on Boxing Day, were reunited with Captain Gazzano who waited on the wharf at Circular Quay for his family to arrive after their long flight.
“Being on a cruise at Christmas is amazing, but it’s even better having the family on board,” Captain Gazzano said.
Having previously worked for Carnival as a corporate trainer, Anne Louise is accustomed to the reality of seafarers having to spend considerable periods of time away from home.
Carnival Legend’s Queensland Christmas cruise itinerary couldn’t have been more perfect for Anne Louise and her own family reunion.
“Being together for Christmas is wonderful but the fact that Carnival Legend is going to Brisbane where I can see my own family makes it all the more special,” Anne Louise said.
