The Carnival Breeze welcomed some special visitors during a recent Mediterranean cruise – Miami HEAT President Pat Riley and his wife Chris, along with Carnival Corporation & plc Chairman and CEO and Miami HEAT Managing General Partner Micky Arison and his wife Madeleine, who were on board to tour the line’s newest “Fun Ship.”

Riley, enjoying some well-deserved R&R following the HEAT’s championship run, had an opportunity to experience Carnival Breeze’s many dining, bar and entertainment innovations and meet with the ship’s senior management.

Carnival Breeze is in the midst of its inaugural season in Europe that began June 3 and continues through October 25.  The ship will then sail on a transatlantic voyage from Barcelona to Miami, positioning the vessel for year-round Caribbean departures from that port beginning November 24, 2012. The 130,000-ton Carnival Breeze will be the largest “Fun Ship” ever based in South Florida.
