Introducing Carnival Journeys
Mar 05
2015
Carnival Cruise Line has launched Carnival Journeys -- a unique collection of nine- to 15-day seagoing adventures that kick off this fall and feature spectacular ports throughout the Caribbean, Central America, Hawaii and Mexico, along with unique shipboard experiences created especially for this one-of-a-kind cruise program.

Carnival Journeys is designed to provide guests with exciting new itinerary choices that will feature less traveled, more exotic ports of call. Carnival Journeys itineraries have been specifically designed for guests who are looking for a longer cruise vacation that will provide the opportunity to visit a wide variety of great destinations and more time to fully enjoy all of the features and facilities available on a selection of the line’s newest and most innovative ships. Carnival Journeys cruises will also include exciting shipboard activities to provide a truly unique Carnival vacation experience.

“We have received a tremendous amount of feedback from our guests and travel agent partners about the importance of consistently offering new Carnival cruise experiences,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president. “Carnival Journeys was created to offer our existing customers even more options while helping us to attract those guests who have not had the opportunity to sail with Carnival and may be enticed by these longer, more exotic itineraries. These new cruises also offer our valued travel agent partners a tremendous new sales opportunity and a great way to earn enhanced commissions based on the longer cruise duration,” she added.

Incredible Itineraries
Carnival Journeys will debut with an 11-day cruise aboard Carnival Dream from New Orleans to San Juan Oct. 4, 2015. The program will run through Nov. 27, 2016, encompassing 28 departures from eight convenient North American homeports including Los Angeles, Galveston, New Orleans, Miami, Port Canaveral, New York, Baltimore and San Juan. Cruises will operate either round-trip from these homeports or one-way between these ports and San Juan. The itineraries are unique and not available on any other cruise line. A detailed listing of all 28 Carnival Journeys sailings is available here. Additional Carnival Journeys sailings will be announced in the near future.
On Carnival Journeys, guests can experience and explore nearly 40 different tropical destinations, including less visited ports like Tobago, Grenada, La Paz, Martinique, Bonaire and Ixtapa, each home to diverse cultures, centuries-old landmarks and historical structures, and unforgettable natural attractions.

Memorable Activities
Carnival Journeys participants can also enjoy unique shipboard experiences that will be tailored to each itinerary in the areas of dining, entertainment, team member connections and enrichment, all infused with the line’s spirited brand of fun. These experiences will include:
· Authentic Eats: Partnering with local restaurants and chefs, Carnival Journeys participants can enjoy on-board cooking demonstrations where these culinary artists will recreate their signature dishes and traditional cuisines from their country. Participants will also have an opportunity to dine at the chef’s restaurant ashore for a nominal fee and accompany the chef as he or she visits local markets for delectable regional specialties.

· “Local”-tainment: From calypso, soca and Goombay to colorful folkloric entertainment, Carnival Journeys participants will get an up close and personal look at their destination through local entertainment performances taking place outside the ship or on board.


· Academy of Fun: Through these educational enrichment sessions, Carnival’s shipboard experts will instruct guests in topics ranging from cooking and arts and crafts to digital photography and social media, even celestial navigation. All of these activities will be performed with the fun and entertaining style that only Carnival can provide.


· Throwback Sea Day: Carnival will set the “way back machine” to 1987 and recreate a fun day at sea with retro pool and deck games, old school dining options like Baked Alaska and the gala midnight buffet, a white glove Captain’s Celebration, popular movies from that era, a circa 1987 version of the Carnival Capers shipboard newsletter, and more.


· Shipboard Team Member Connections: Here, Carnival Journeys participants can learn more about shipboard life through informative question and answer sessions hosted by the ship’s captain, cruise director, hotel director and others, held at different times throughout the voyage and providing an opportunity to engage and interact with the Carnival team in a fun and casual setting. There will also be an unforgettable show performed by the ship’s crew during the voyage.

All Carnival Journeys adventures are currently open for reservations. For additional information and reservations, contact any travel agent, call 1-800-CARNIVAL or visit carnival.com.

Free Concert for All Children’s Hospital Patients
Mar 05
2015
With music inspired by fairy tales, a princess and a hero, The Florida Orchestra will perform “Play Me a Story,” a free concert exclusively for young patients and their families at All Children’s Hospital at 2:30 p.m. Friday, March 13. Musicians also will play in the hallways, bringing music to children unable to attend the concert.

“We all remember the first time we saw an orchestra live on stage. We were transfixed as the musicians turned these simple objects made of wood and metal into spectacular life-enhancing sounds that wildly sparked our imaginations,” said new Music Director Designate Michael Francis – himself a new father – who will conduct. “Our concert at All Children’s Hospital will explore the magical world of fairy tales as told by the greatest composers. We want every child, everywhere, to feel the transformative power of live music."

The orchestra will perform at All Children’s Hospital, 501 Sixth Ave. S, outside next to a play pirate ship (weather permitting). Kids will hear Rossini’s galloping Overture to William Tell (also known as the theme from the Lone Ranger), as well as selections from Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty, Ravel’s Ma Mere l’Oye (Mother Goose) Suite and Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite.The concert is scheduled to be simulcast to patients’ rooms.

“Music can calm an anxious child as they prepare to undergo a procedure. It can help a struggling teen express their jumbled up feelings, and it can soothe an infant who is unable to get comfortable with wires and tubes surrounding them,” said Kelly Tyrrell, a certified music therapist at All Children’s. “It is not limited by age, diagnosis, gender, or background. There is nothing quite like the experience of hearing great quality, live music. What an honor it is to have The Florida Orchestra come and perform for children and families.”

“Play Me a Story” is another chapter in the orchestra’s expanded mission to take music to the people, under the baton of Michael Francis, who takes over as music director in the 2015/16 season. Last December, “A Season Serenade” was performed just before Christmas at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, and in early February, the orchestra previewed its new season amid shoppers at International Plaza.

Please note this event is not open to the public. However, for news media, there will be several opportunities on March 13:

About 1:15 pm: Some musicians will play in the hallways. There may be one-on-one interaction and musicians wearing protective garb for kids with immune sensitivities.

To be arranged before concert: Interviews with All Children’s music therapist Kelly Tyrrell, who will attend the event and explain the benefits of music to hospitalized children.

2:30 pm: Concert performance on pirate ship deck*

*In the event of rain, a smaller ensemble will play a program in a designated area of the hospital.

About The Florida Orchestra

The Florida Orchestra presents the 14-concert Tampa Bay Times Masterworks series and the 9-concert Raymond James Pops Series, both of which are performed in Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. Other concert series include the 8-concert morning Coffee Concert series in St. Petersburg, the newly expanded 4-concert morning Coffee Concert series in Clearwater and the 3-concert Rock series in St. Petersburg. The orchestra also offers a variety of free Pops in the Park concerts around Tampa Bay, including the annual Ashley for the Arts “Pops in the Park” concert at St. Petersburg’s Vinoy Park.

COUNTRY MUSIC DUO BIG & RICH TO BE FEATURED IN UPCOMING EPISODE OF ABC’s HIT ROMANCE REALITY SERIES THE BACHELOR
Feb 06
2015
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 5, 2014) – Famed country music duo Big & Rich will be featured on an upcoming episode of The Bachelor.

Chris Soules, the handsome and successful new Bachelor who has become known as “Prince Farming,” introduced himself to last season’s Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, and female fans fell hard for the soft-spoken man with a heart of gold. Now, this dreamboat farmer and wealthy businessman from Iowa is looking to fall in love and find a wife — and bring her back home to share a life with him in the small Iowa town of Arlington. With the support of his family and the state of Iowa rooting for him, Chris truly believes he can find the right woman to share a life with. Follow Chris Soules’ search for his soul mate in the 19th edition of The Bachelor on Mondays (8:00–10:01 pm ET) on the ABC Television Network.

The first single, “Look at You,” from their latest studio album, Gravity broke the Top 10 on the country chart in November. Their current single, Run Away with You is now hitting radio airwaves. The country superstars' first studio album, Horse of a Different Color, includes their infectious hit single, “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).” Other hits include, “Comin’ to Your City,” “8th of November” and their No. 1 hit “Lost in this Moment.” Meanwhile, Comin' to Your City is nearing a decade as the theme song for ESPN's College GameDay show.

Country Singer TG Sheppard Hitting the Road with 2015 Winter/Spring Concert Tour
Feb 02
2015
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 2, 2015) – It’s shaping up to be a busy year for Country legend TG Sheppard as his winter/spring concert tour is getting underway. The singer will headline shows in cities across North America, featuring his groundbreaking music and signature songs. The tour coincides with the 40th anniversary of the phenomenal hit, “Devil in the Bottle.”

TG Sheppard says the strong support and broadening of his fan base now makes hitting the road even more meaningful. I'm constantly amazed to see such a wide age range of people who are showing up for our concerts night after night. Country music fans have never been fickle and will never leave you as long as you’re true to them and your music. They are growing larger in numbers all the time. He adds, I'm looking forward to my upcoming tour dates along with playing closer to home at the incredible Franklin Theatre with my talented wife, Kelly Lang. I haven't done a show locally in years. It will be fun doing a concert this close to Nashville.

The winter/spring engagements for TG Sheppard will include stops in Arizona, North Dakota, Florida, Tennessee and Texas. More shows are being added to this year’s tour schedule. So, be sure to check for updates on performances and special appearances.
