Have you ever dreamed of practically living on a cruise ship? Or, at the least, sailing on every ship in your favorite cruise line’s fleet?
One man has done it. When loyal Carnival passenger William Filomena boarded the Carnival Miracle in late December, he accomplished what no other guest has done in the company’s 38-year history–he sailed on all 23 “Fun Ships” in a year. Filomena’s unique achievement when he embarked on a 7-day cruise aboard the Carnival Spirit in fall 2008 and, over the course of the next year, he sailed on every “Fun Ship” in the fleet.
Although Filomena has already earned a place in the Carnival record book, he plans to continue cruising with the line and already has 12 cruises planned for 2010! We hope he received more than a ship-on-a-stick for his accomplishment.
