When Bernard and Janice Caffary boarded the Carnival Liberty last week, they stepped into the record books, becoming the first guests to ever sail on 200 cruises with Carnival Cruise Line.

What’s even more remarkable is that the Caffarys achieved this feat in just 15 years, meaning that the couple averages nearly 15 cruises a year with Carnival, making them among the most loyal guests at sea.

Overall the Caffarys have spent a whopping 878 days – more than two and a half years –aboard Carnival Cruise Line ships.  And the fun isn’t going to stop any time soon as the couple has another 30 cruises booked with the line.

To commemorate their 200-cruise milestone, the Carnival Liberty team rolled out the red carpet, going all out to make the Caffary’s cruise extra special and memorable.

The VIP treatment began as soon as they arrived in Port Canaveral with welcoming signage throughout the terminal and ship.  During the cruise, the Caffarys received a number of commemorative gifts and unique onboard experiences.  They were also the guests of honor during special VIP celebrations held both in the ship’s atrium and the main show lounge attended by dozens of Carnival Liberty team members.

Carnival Liberty operates year-round three- and four-day cruises from Port Canaveral.
