Guests enjoying a December cruise with Carnival Cruise Line are banding together to stop The Grinch from stealing Christmas with the legendary green character popping up onboard Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend as part of the cruise line’s Seuss at Sea program.
Decked out in his signature “Santy Claus” costume, the cantankerous curmudgeon has been up to his usual tricks, playfully disrupting onboard festivities and even cheekily stealing items from crew members throughout the ship.
To help The Grinch’s heart grow “three times” this Christmas, children onboard Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend have been creating their own “Grinchmas” ornaments and masks as well as completing a Grinch Good Deed Tracker.
Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke also took some time on a recent Carnival Spirit cruise to do her bit in teaching The Grinch that “maybe Christmas means more than what comes from a store”.
During December cruises, The Grinch has become part of the cruise line’s Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in the Hat and Friends, while Dr. Seuss’ “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” will be shown onboard both ships on Christmas Day.
“Grinchmas” will be in full swing when Carnival’s Christmas cruises depart Sydney this weekend with Carnival Legend enjoying its first Queensland Christmas and Carnival Spirit cruising New Caledonia during the festive season.
