Carnival LIVE News: Carrie Underwood to Perform in 2017

by Carrie McLaren with no comments

Carnival Cruise Lines’ popular Carnival LIVE series is expanding in 2017 with an onboard concert featuring country superstar Carrie Underwood.

The concert will take place onboard the Carnival Imagination’s intimate Dynasty Lounge while the ship is docked in Catalina Island on April 4, 2017, during a four-day cruise that departs from Long Beach, Calif., April 2, 2017.

The concert follows Underwood’s invitation-only concert for military families aboard Carnival Vista last month to celebrate the ship’s U.S. arrival and commemorate the line’s year-long Honor.Family.Fun program supporting Operation Homefront, an organization dedicated to building strong, stable and secure military families.

What is Carnival LIVE?

On Carnival LIVE sailings, the ship has an extended stay in one port for the night of the concert. On our last trip, we were docked in St. Thomas until midnight and Journey played that night in the ship’s theater. It is important to mention that performers are only on the ship for the concert, not the entire voyage.

When booking a Carnival LIVE sailing, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase concert tickets, just as you would book an excursion.
