A video showcasing the traditional coin ceremony for the new Carnival Horizon has earned the coveted Silver Telly Award in the General Travel/Tourism category.   Now in their 38th year, the Telly awards recognize superior achievement in various broadcast, digital and non-broadcast productions.

Produced by Miami-based Bold Man and the Sea Media for Carnival Cruise Line, the fast-paced video entitled “Carnival Horizon:  Journey to the Coin Ceremony” follows the path of a commemorative coin as it travels through Italy on its way to the ship’s coin ceremony which was held at the Fincantieri shipyard in Maghera, Italy, marking a significant milestone in the vessel’s construction.   The coin is shown in such historic places as the Colosseum, The Vatican and Trevi Fountain before arriving at the Fincantieri shipyard where it was welded to the ship’s mast as part of a centuries-old maritime tradition.

Carnival Horizon is scheduled to make its maiden voyage April 2, 2018, with a 13-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona – the first of four round-trip departures from this port.  Carnival Horizon will reposition to the U.S. with a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York May 9-23, 2018.

Following its summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean departures from the Big Apple, Carnival Horizon will shift to Miami and kick off a year-round schedule of six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises beginning Sept. 22, 2018. Carnival Horizon will also offer a special two-day cruise to Nassau from Miami Sept. 20-22, 2018.
