Carnival Cruise Line's New Contest Asks Travel Agents To Express How They 'Choose Fun' With Emoji

Participants in the ‘Choose Fun! Emoji Contest can win a Caribbean cruise

and daily giveaways


MIAMI (Sept. 24, 2018) — Carnival Cruise Line is going beyond a smile, a wink or a wave and asking travel agents to Choose Fun® with their favorite emoji. The "Choose Fun! Emoji Contest" begins Monday, Sept. 24, and continues through Friday, Oct. 5, 2018, giving Carnival's travel partners the chance to win the grand prize of an up-to seven-day Caribbean cruise for two in a balcony stateroom as well as daily gift card giveaways. Agents can play once a day during the 12-day promotional period from their PC desktop or mobile phone.

The interactive promotion is part of Carnival's Choose Fun® movement and can be accessed on Carnival's Trade Facebook page. During a brief online session, participants will be prompted to answer engaging questions designed to teach them more about Carnival Cruise Line. New questions will be introduced daily in multiple choice, question-and-answer, and fill-in-the-blank formats, each using emoji as answers or clues.

"Carnival Cruise Line is all about fun, and we want our agents to have fun while learning more about our brand" said Adolfo Perez, Carnival's senior vice president of sales and trade marketing. "Our travel partners have told us they appreciate our contests and we're excited to show agents we value their partnership with the light-hearted trivia and great prizes in the Choose Fun! Emoji Contest."

"Choose Fun! Emoji Contest" is the latest in a series of online travel agent promotions that have included "Rock My Word," "What's Your Carnival IQ?" and "Keep On Rockin'," which are all part of #thelist, Carnival's latest programs exclusively for agents.

"Choose Fun! Emoji Contest" is available to travel agents who reside in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. Complete "Choose Fun! Emoji Contest" details can be found under #thelist under Agent Rewards at or directly on
