Talk about brand loyalty!  Dennis Coleman celebrated his 1,000th Carnival cruise day during an eight-day voyage aboard the Carnival Sunshine from Port Canaveral, Fla., that departed earlier this week.

A member of Carnival’s elite Diamond Very Important Fun Person (VIFP) loyalty program, the 67-year-old Baltimore resident has sailed on an incredible 139 Carnival cruises over the past 12 years.

Carnival Sunshine’s team went “all out” to recognize this significant milestone, hosting a party in Coleman’s honor during which he was presented with a number of gifts, including a Carnival ship model and a personalized letter from Carnival President Christine Duffy, as well as special VIP treatment throughout the voyage.  Coleman is pictured here with members of the Carnival Sunshine’s management team during the festivities.
