Six-foot ‘Towel Elephant’ Debuts on Carnival Dream
Currently featured aboard the Carnival Dream, the as-yet-unnamed terrycloth pachyderm frequently interacts with guests along the promenade and makes regular visits to the Camp Carnival play area, posing for photos and keeping kids amused and entertained.
In addition to the Carnival Dream, the towel elephant is planned for five other Carnival ships—Carnival Imagination, Carnival Freedom, Carnival Miracle, Carnival Sensation, and Carnival Magic, which is set to debut May 1.
There’s no word yet about how Fun Ship Freddy feels about the competition; however, in my personal opinion, the towel elephant is certainly cuter and cuddlier, not to mention less scary than Fun Ship Freddy for the littlest kids.
Did you ever wonder how the creation of towel animals came about? Cruise Diva explains the history of these Ultimare Bed-Time Pals.
