Templeton Tours, a leading Christian-themed charter operator, recently hosted its 35th charter with Carnival Cruise Lines, a five-day cruise on the Carnival Fascination from Jacksonville, Fla.

A number of festivities were held on board to mark the historic milestone, including a reception in the Carnival Fascination’s Tara Library attended by Templeton and Carnival executives and the ship’s management team.

Templeton Tours has been working with Carnival on their charter business since 2001, and over the past 13 years, more than 60,000 guests have participated in the religious-oriented sailings which feature guest speakers, musical performances and special activities.

“Templeton Tours has been a valued partner of Carnival Cruise Lines for more than a decade and we couldn’t be more pleased to host their 35th charter aboard the ‘Fun Ship’ Carnival Fascination,” said Joni Rein, Carnival’s vice president of worldwide sales.  “We are proud to work with Jeff and his incredible team in putting these charters together and look forward to working with Templeton Tours for many years to come.”
