I remember the commercials well. They were inviting. I didn't share the enthusiasm for Kathie Lee, sorry folks, I find her perkiness annoying, that and she never shut up about her kids when she was on the talk show. Personally, I would have rather heard about her attempt at growing a vegetable garden than her brats.....their your kids, gush about them with your friends, not North America...

What a coincidence! I saw her on television last night and I thought of these commercials. Then I see you posted them this morning. The prices haven't changed that much as you can look at the sales and see the prices are very similar today.
Cruised more times than I can remember.
Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.
Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
I believe Kathie Lee married Frank Gifford in 1986.
I think she was a wonderful spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Lines. Whether you like her or not, the upbeat ads were certainly memorable and successful at getting Carnival's cruise message across to the consumer.
In 95 we sailed the Fascination, which at that time it was sailing out of San Juan....The ship was doing commercials for the trade, in preperation for Kathie Lee coming onboard, when we ended our cruise..
Several areas of the ship were out of bounds or taped off for commercials.....we were in one, at the bar in a lounge, I am sure we ended up on the cutting room floor:
Back then on some ships, as you sailed away, they played her theme song! Many wanted to gag...but :)
Trip, with her book & tea!

I remember the Carnival commercials from the 80's. Between those and watching Love Boat, I really wanted to go on a cruise. But DH didn't think it would be a good idea. Even in 1997, when we booked a cabin on a cruise with family, he wanted to stay home. But I made him go. Now, he's always asking when our next cruise will be. Somehow, we're up to 3 a year (4 for this year). I think he's addicted.
