I just got an email from Carnival from this, but I don't really understand what it is? Does Carnival have their own island now and we can take vacations there?

It appears to be a simple marketting thing. Interactive website of all the fun things you can do.

If it's unwanted and or SPAM you can email the folks who are the upstream:

A marking tool for sure. From what I see is that people are now cruising for the ships not the stops as they have been there done that. So now the ship becomes the island, thus the name funshipisland. Looking it over this morning I think they've done a pretty good job at it. The tours of the spas and so on. Cruise the funship way.

The website is registered to Carnival Corporation. It is a marketing campaign that they are using. If you are on Carnival's email list you may receive this promotion.

It technically isn't spam.

Take care,
Mike

I tired to download the beach scene to my desktop... haven't gotten it to work yet.

This thing is awesome! Does anyone know what ship/ships they used?

It has to be either the Liberty or something newer, because of the movie screen on the Lido.

I've enjoyed it too, IB and Luanne.

It just makes me want to cruise NOW instead of 2 months.....
