Weston’s 100th Cruise – onboard Carnival Spirit
Yesterday, Gold Coast couple Mark and Leanne Weston celebrateed their 100th cruise, on board Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Spirit.
The seasoned travellers began their cruising journey 40 years ago on the Fairstar to the Pacific Islands falling in love with the fun, frivolity and vibrant atmosphere onboard.
Mark Weston says, “We knew we had found our perfect holiday the first time we stepped onboard in 1977. The atmosphere, offerings and staff make every journey an enjoyable one. Whether it’s your first cuise or 100th, you’re immediately made to feel part of the family. The friendships you make onboard are life long and we often arrange to travel with friends that we’ve made along the way.”
The Weston’s were the first couple to become Carnival Diamond Members in 2014, having spent over 300 nights onboard.
Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Australasia Jennifer Vandekreeke says, “”We are thrilled and honoured to welcome Mark and Leanne onboard Carnival Spirit for their 100th cruise. They are such a fun loving couple who truly know how to make the most of every cruise experience.
I know I speak for the Carnival family when I say, welcome back, we’re so happy to have you sailing with us,” concludes Ms Vandekreeke.
The Weston’s have provided their top five tips for people that are new to cruise:
Make the most of the spectacular live entertainment on board – we love the live comedy shows offered on Carnival Cruise Line.
No matter what age you are, try some new adrenaline rush activities such as the Green Thunder waterslide.
Eat at the specialty restaurants on board, such as the incredible Nouveau Restaurant on Carnival.
Get involved in the theme nights – there are only a few occasions where you can bring out your best 80s clothing!
Amongst all the fun activities happening, make sure you take some time to yourselves – our favourite spot are the relaxation pods in the adults only Serenity Retreat area on Carnival.
