Cruise Planners Christi & Vern Elliott will host a Carnival Cruise Night at Winthrop Liquors beer garden on Wednesday, February 13 from 6-9 p.m.

Cruise Planners Hosting Carnival Cruise Night

Join Cruise Planners franchise owners Christi & Vern Elliott, along with a Carnival representative, to dispel some of the myths about Carnival, Cruising and Travel Agents.

Carnival Cruise Night is being held at Winthrop Liquors beer garden on Wednesday, February 13 from 6-9 p.m. While enjoying a wine tasting, a glass of wine, a beer or other spirits find out what is new on Carnival ships and current promotions.

There are a lot of rumors that go around that become what people tend to quote as facts. The fact is that Carnival really is not the party ship it has the reputation of being and has so much more to offer, such as fine art exhibits and wines from around the world. Carnival is a very family friendly cruise line and has ports all over the world with stops in many exotic places such as the Mediterranean. People also seem to think using a travel agent costs money when in fact it does not cost you anything, and often save you money and a lot of time.

The Elliotts are hoping to dispel some of these rumors, have some fun, give away door prizes and get people thinking about their next vacation.

“We hope to debunk these and other myths like: There is nothing to do in port but shop, I’ll get seasick and more. It’s going to be a lot of fun and informative. After all, what’s more fun than vacation?”

RSVP is not required, but appreciated, at 445-8300 or Visit
