Default World's Leading Cruise Lines....

....can't count. Ad says six lines, lists seven! Is one not "world class" or is one headed for a premature demise?

Maybe I'm not seeing the same ad because I can't see where it says "six."

I see it! It pops up sometimes on the right side, a long vertical one.

Too funny.

Believe me, I've been looking... and I guess The Powers That Be decided I don't need that particular ad! I've seen plenty for World's Leading Cruise Lines, including some that list the cruise lines, but none with the word "six" in them!

Not doubting you, just saying that in the random ad generation, that one just hasn't shown up for me yet.

Cheers,

The answer is simple: Carnival's "family" of six was Carnival, Costa, Cunard, HAL, Seabourn, and Windstar, as mentioned in all their ads UNTIL the acquisition of Princess was approved by Carnival Corp. shareholders about two weeks ago. Therefore the ad now lists seven cruiselines. Apparently the title line has not yet been changed to reflect the addition of Princess.

Much ado about nothing.

I just ran into this ad...you'd think they'd proofread a bit when changing the image. :-) If anyone's consumed with curiosity, I have attached the image here.
