Carnival Cruise Lines, Texas’ largest cruise operator, and CBS Radio Houston are searching for the most spirited office in Houston for the chance to win the Ultimate Summer Office Party – a day of vacation-inspired fun for up to 100 people aboard one of Carnival’s Galveston-based cruise ships.

Through a fun and easy photo contest conducted by Carnival and four leading Houston radio stations, those working for local companies in the greater Houston area can enter by submitting a new “vacation-ready” photo with their colleagues until May 23.

From a team selfie in sunglasses to board shorts in the board room, co-workers are encouraged to submit group shots that demonstrate they are ready for a day of vacation fun with their work friends. Entrants can upload one photo per day during the contest period to any of the following CBS Radio Houston web sites (where complete contest rules can also be found):

The grand prize winner will be announced the week of May 26. The winning submission will receive the Ultimate Summer Office Party for up to 100 people aboard one of Carnival’s ships on a turnaround day at the Port of Galveston.  It will be a day that’s all play and no work for guests on board who can ride the waterslide, enjoy the pools and open decks, feast on a variety of delicious foods and cocktails with their colleagues.

About Carnival Cruise Lines in Texas

Carnival pioneered year-round cruising from Galveston, Texas and currently operates two Galveston-based ships carrying more than 450,000 passengers annually – more than any other cruise operator. Carnival Magic offers seven-day Caribbean cruises and Carnival Triumph features four- and five-day departures to Mexico. The line will expand its operations in Galveston next year when Carnival Freedom launches seven-day sailings to the Caribbean in February 2015, marking the first time that a cruise line has deployed three year-round ships in Texas.

These ships feature a wide variety of innovations that are part of the line’s Fun Ship 2.0 product enhancement program, including the Caribbean-themed RedFrog Pub, Guy’s Burger Joint developed in tandem with Food Network star Guy Fieri, and the Punchliner Comedy Club presented by George Lopez, along with spectacular water slides, miniature golf courses and other exciting top-deck attractions (features vary by ship).
