The Carnival Jubilee boots auction closed with the winning pledge of $25,000. The auction's winner will be announced by Carnival President Christine Duffy Carnival Jubilee’s Naming Ceremony on Feb. 24, 2024.

Duffy invited Carnival guests to support military families by auctioning off the special pair of Carnival Jubilee boots – just like the handcrafted pair she wore while welcoming the ship’s first guests on board in Galveston, Tex., where the ship is homeported. The original custom boots were handmade by Houston-based Parker Boot Company and were designed by Carnival designer Petu Kummala. The auction for the second pair of Carnival Jubilee boots will result in a donation benefiting Carnival charitable partner Operation Homefront, a national non-profit organization dedicated to building strong, stable, and secure military families.

Carnival Jubilee's Naming Ceremony will be livestreamed. To register, click here. The livestream will be available to watch on Carnival's Facebook page as well.
