As part of a celebration of the Bahamas’ 50th anniversary of independence, Carnival Cruise Line and the Government of The Bahamas hosted a Junkanoo celebration aboard the Mardi Gras. A local Bahamas Junkanoo troupe and the Royal Bahamas Police Force Band performed live during the celebration of Junkanoo’s history.
There were approximately 150 government officials, business leaders, and community members in attendance.
In honor of the country’s 50 years of independence, resilience, strength, and progress, Carnival Cruise Line president Christine Duffy said: “Carnival has been partnering with The Bahamas for more than half a century, and we’re proud to celebrate it.” During this celebration, we look forward to bringing millions more visitors to the country to experience all its beauty and culture.
In addition, John H. W. Pinder II, The Bahamas Minister of Tourism, Investments and Aviation, and Leslia Miller-Brice, the Bahamas Independence Secretariat Chair, and Latia Duncombe, the Bahamas Minister of Tourism, Investments and Aviation, were present.
“We are a paradise nation known for our natural resources, culture, diversity, and world-class hospitality,” Pinder said. Our country has flourished over the last five decades because of partners such as Carnival, who have shown the world everything we have to offer. I am grateful to them for their commitment now and in the future.
