Yesterday, Carnival Cruise Line announced a new partnership with superstar Carrie Underwood designed to support U.S. military and raise funds for Operation Homefront.
From donations to special concerts, meet and greets for select military families and more – this partnership is set to bring awareness and support for military families across the United States.
A Look Inside the Program
In 10 cities along the course of Carrie Underwood’s The Storyteller Tour, select military families, chosen in partnership with Operation Homefront, will be treated to a personal meet-and-greet with Underwood before her concerts. A video series highlighting the meet and greets and the families’ individual stories will be featured on carnival.com.
“I’m honored to be able to join Carnival Cruise Line and Operation Homefront to lift up these soldiers and their families,” said Underwood. “I am really looking forward to meeting them on my tour and for the opportunity to personally thank them for all they do for our freedom.”

Carrie Underwood Onboard Carnival Cruise Line
On November 4, 2016 there will be a special private pierside concert for service men and women and their families starring Underwood aboard Carnival’s newest ship, the Carnival Vista, when the vessel makes its U.S. debut in New York City at the Port of New York.
In the coming weeks, Carnival will launch a new shipboard military appreciation program. Each ship will host a special event on board to recognize active and retired military personnel and their families and will kick off with a welcome video featuring Carrie Underwood.
Another big announcement from yesterday’s press conference is that Carrie Underwood will join the Carnival LIVE! roster of artists in early 2017. I’m a huge fan of the Carnival LIVE series and I know that is going to be an incredible performance.
