It was a beautiful day in Schaumburg, IL today where Alexian Field, home of the Schaumburg Flyers baseball team, was the location of a fun family day sponsored by Cruises Inc. and Carnival Cruise Line. The highlight of the day was a cruise giveaway.
Schaumburg Flyers were hosts to the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks for the final game of the series. Coming off a win Saturday night, hopes were high that the Flyers could win again, but unfortunately that wasn't the case.
The fans didn't seem to mind as it is a fantastic family experience just to be there and watch a baseball game together. Post game festivities included an Autograph Session and Run the Bases, a favorite among the young fans.
When the Flyers organization approached me at a Streamwood Chamber of Commerce event and asked me to sponsor a cruise giveaway, I immediately thought about partnering with Carnival Cruise Line since both the Flyers and Carnival are all about family fun. Laura, my local Carnival representative, was also excited about the idea and together we planned the event. It was great talking with so many people at the ballpark about the fantastic family experience aboard one of Carnival's Fun Ships.
Here are some fun facts that visitors to my booth learned about:
Carnival Cruise Lines has 23 ships sailing from 20 home ports to the Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii, Mexican Riviera, Canada and Europe.
The Carnival Dream sailing from Port Canaveral to the eastern and western Caribbean is the largest Carnival ship. Great for families! Some of the amenities include…cabins that can sleep 5 with 2 bathrooms, Seaside Theatre, kids programs for ages 2 – 17, Carnival Water Works featuring 6 water slides, comedy club, laser light shows at night off the back of the ship, 24 hour room service/pizzeria and ice cream, a huge spa for mom to relax in and much more!
In January, the average temperature in Chicago is 24 degrees and the average temperature in the Caribbean is 82 degrees. Trade in your snow shovel for some sunscreen! Take advantage of Carnival’s early saver fares which offer the lowest pricing and get out of town this winter! Gray skies or blue skies…what would you choose?
