Several years ago I applied to be a contestant on Deal or No Deal. They didn’t want me (*boohoo!*) however one thing I remember from filling in the application form was a question: if you could have any dream job in the world what would it be? I think I said ‘Victoria Beckham’s personal shopper’ or something, but in actual fact my dream job has just come true as I’m excited to announce today that my blog and I have been chosen to be Ambassadors for Carnival Cruise Lines for one year, specifically reporting on their newest ship – the Carnival Vista!
Carnival Cruise Lines have been at BritMums Live for two years and each time they announced an opportunity. In 2013 it was “Become Carnival’s Funnest Family” which the lovely blogger Penny Alexander and her family won, and in 2015 Carnival asked all the bloggers there to apply to be one of five ‘Fun Seeking Families!’
The announcement has just been made and I am delighted to have been chosen as Carnival’s ‘Sunseeking’ family!
Here are the categories that you could apply for and who has been chosen to fill them:
Funseeking Family: Laura Seaton – Tired Mummy of Two
Thrillseeking Family: Kara Guppy – Chelsea Mamma
Foodieseeking Family: Kirsty Phillipson-Lowe – Hijacked by Twins
Sunseeking Family: Nadine Hill (me!) – JuggleMum
Chillseeking Family: Sonia Constant – Mummy Constant
I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate the other bloggers selected and to let my readers know that I plan to do some open and informative posts about my time with Carnival and my family’s experiences onboard the Vista. If there is anything you particularly want to know about cruising (I have been on 4 cruises in the past – it is such an easy and relaxing way to travel!) or about the Carnival Vista in particular then do let me know in the blog comments below so I can take your suggestions on board and ensure that I answer your questions after I have seen the ship for myself!
See the kind of cruises and ships that the Carnival Cruise Line has to offer and watch the video below for a virtual tour of the Carnival Vista – the newest ship in their fleet, setting sail May 2016!
Information added April 2016: You can follow all the Carnival Ambassadors’ activity on social media by watching the hashtags #CarnivalFamilies and #FunSeekingFamilies but I have created a hashtag for me directly: #CruiseQueenNadine so that you can Tweet me your questions, take part in my Vista vote (what is the first thing you want to see when I get onboard) and generally communicate with me about your cruising questions and comments! Using #CruiseQueenNadine will help me to filter out my cruising comments and questions from all my other social media activity! I can’t wait to set sail and bring you the latest from onboard!
