Splen­dor makes Aussie de­but

Travel Daily - - News -

YES­TER­DAY saw the ar­rival of Car­ni­val Splen­dor in Syd­ney for the first time, with an ex­clu­sive group of travel agents wel­comed on board to cel­e­brate the mo­ment in true retro-style with an overnight cruise and Rock-nGlow dance party.

Speak­ing to the me­dia aboard the ship last night, Car­ni­val’s Vice Pres­i­dent and Gen­eral Man­ager, Aus­tralia Jen­nifer Van­dekreeke, pic­tured do­ing her finest Axl Rose im­pres­sion, said the ship had been given a num­ber of new bells and whis­tles to cater specif­i­cally for the Aus­tralian mar­ket.

“It re­ally was a col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort with our op­er­a­tions team to make sure we brought a ship down to this mar­ket that was re­ally go­ing to be big­ger, bolder and bet­ter than pre­vi­ous Car­ni­val ships,” she said.

These new ad­di­tions in­clude new cafes such as Juice and Java, as well new eater­ies like the new In­dian-in­spired Masala Tiger.

Van­dekreeke also ex­clu­sively re­vealed the line had inked a part­ner­ship with cof­fee brand Vit­to­ria Cof­fee, which has seen its baris­tas trained by Vit­to­ria’s staff and cof­fee beans pro­vided.

Car­ni­val will be soon ded­i­cat­ing two full-time ships to the Aussie mar­ket when Spirit ar­rives to ser­vice Bris­bane from Oct 2020.
