The canned food cruise ship was part of the Holiday Food & Fund drive that was sponsored by Carnival Cruise Line and the New Orleans Saints.  It was 30 feet long and built from more than 17,000 cans of food, with the help of New Orleans area schools. Carnival is the official cruise line of the New Orleans Saints.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, gave the following statement: “Carnival has been a part of New Orleans for more than two decades and we greatly value the opportunity to give back to our homeport communities. This Holiday Food & Fun drive in partnership with the New Orleans Saints and Second Harvest was a fun and rewarding way to provide tens of thousands of meals to those in need this holiday season.”

Carnival is New Orleans’ largest cruise operator serving more than 400,000 passengers on year on two cruise ships. A third ship, Carnival Triumph, will also begin sailing out of the port in the spring.
