Carnival Kicks Off Facebook Contest Tied To New Thrill 5D Theater Set To Debut On Carnival Breeze; One Of Several New Entertainment Features To Be Introduced On Newest 'Fun Ship'









MIAMI, Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Carnival Cruise Lines launched "The 5D Challenge: TRIVIAL PURSUIT Edition" – a Facebook promotion designed to highlight the new Thrill 5D Theater set to debut on the Carnival Breeze in June 2012.  The contest can be found on Carnival's Facebook page under the Carnival Breeze tab at www.facebook.com/carnival.

In addition to the Thrill 5D Theater, Carnival Breeze will be the first ship to feature all of the new entertainment options introduced as part the Fun Ship 2.0 enhancement program, a $500 million initiative that will completely transform Carnival's on-board guest experience.     

Also, many of the ship's entertainment features and other elements are highlighted within a new virtual tour, and series of panoramic images and videos debuting today on www.carnivalbreeze.com.

With Carnival Breeze's Thrill 5D Theater, guests will enjoy an exhilarating, multi-dimensional experience that will make them feel like they are actually in the movie. The theater combines a high-definition 3D projection system with 4D elements such as squirting water and bubbles, and original special effects that will tickle guests' legs, blow air on their necks and poke them in their seats. Seats within the theater will shift back and forth, move from side to side and also vibrate, creating an exciting "fifth-dimensional" element. Guests will receive special 3D glasses that deliver a truly immersive movie-going experience.

To excite fans about Carnival's new Thrill 5D Theater and to get them into the "movie-viewing" mindset, the company under license from Hasbro, Inc. has created "The 5D Challenge: TRIVIAL PURSUIT Edition" on Facebook. Contest participants are asked to answer movie-themed trivia questions from Hasbro's popular TRIVIAL PURSUIT brand. 

One prize will be given away daily for the next five days ( January 9-13) with contestants required to correctly answer three daily trivia questions to enter into a prize drawing.  Prizes include a 50-inch 3D Plasma HDTV, 3D phone, HD camcorder, and a $250 movie theater gift card. Also Hasbro Video and Board Game Prize Packs, including an Xbox 360 gaming console, will be given away throughout the contest period.

"We are delighted to continue our collaboration with our brand partner Hasbro on this unique contest showcasing Carnival Breeze's new 5D Theatre, which will be part of the ship's many exciting on-board features designed to thrill, captivate and entertain our guests," said Jim Berra, Carnival's senior vice president and chief marketing officer.
