Carnival Spirit goes troppo with new Sunshine State remodel
Carnival Cruise Line has unveiled renders of Carnival Spirit’s redesign ahead of her Brisbane home porting from 2020.
Carnival Spirit will soon see a colour upgrade to its iconic red funnel, plus refurbishments to its waterslide and pub, designed specifically with Queenslanders in mind.
Celebrating the Sunshine State’s love of Rugby League, Carnival’s signature red funnel will switch over to Queensland’s favourite hue, maroon. Towering 53 metres above the waterline, the maroon funnel will add to a long list of ‘Big Things’ living in Queensland.
Additionally, Carnival Spirit’s yellow Twister Waterslide will receive a snakey-makeover to celebrate a Queensland icon, ‘The Brown Snake’. This adrenaline-packed slide will feature more twists and turns than Johnathan Thurston’s footwork in the 2017 State of Origin.
A fan favourite on Carnival Spirit, the RedFrog Pub will also be revamped and rechristened the Cane Toad Pub, in a nod to the state’s abundance of these amphibians. With crowd-pleasing beers on tap such as Milton Mangos, Great Northerns and Carnival’s very own Cane Toad lager, cruisers can rock out to the in-house five-piece band covering a never ending loop of ‘Streets of Your Town’ or perhaps some ‘Finger.
Finally, with the Sunshine State boasting some of the world’s best beaches, Carnival Spirit will soon join the party. Seven tonnes of sand will be transported onto Carnival Spirit to create a stunning artificial lagoon, aptly named ‘New Southbank’, a luxurious Adults-Only retreat.
“In honour of Carnival Spirit’s new home north of the Tweed, it’s important our Queensland guests feel at home with these new and exciting features,” said Jennifer Vandekreeke, Vice President Carnival Cruise Line Australia.
“Carnival Spirit is more than ten times bigger than Brissy’s famous CityCats – we hope all Queenslanders have the opportunity to see and experience her in person soon.”
