Heads Up Atlanta! You might see something a little unusual in the sky around Atlanta this weekend.
Carnival Cruise Line is debuting the Carnival AirShip, a massive 128-foot-long, 44-foot-tall red, white, and blue blimp to raise awareness of the new ship arriving in port called Carnival Horizon.
We have the scoop on how you can win a free cruise, while also helping out St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. But first, a little more about the Airship.
Filled with enough helium to inflate 136,000 balloons, the Carnival AirShip is taking to the sky, and making its way across the Southeast on a 30-day voyage to celebrate the redeployment of four Carnival ships relocating to new ports. The Airship will be flying over Atlanta Sept. 26 – 30.
A Prize for You and a Donation for St. Jude
Not that a giant cruise ship flying across the sky isn’t excitement enough, Carnival Cruise Line wants to give you a chance to choose fun and win a cruise for two, as well as other prizes such as swag, VIP event passes and Carnival Cruise gift cards.
All you need to do to enter is take a picture or video of the AirShip and post it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #ChooseFun. The hashtag will also trigger a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Carnival Horizon
As the newest ship in the fleet, Carnival Horizon introduces several innovations, including the first-ever Dr. Seuss water park, a new teppanyaki venue, and Smokehouse Brewhouse, a unique dining concept that combines real deal BBQ favorites created by Food Network star and longtime partner Guy Fieri, along with four craft beers brewed on board by brewmaster Colin Presby.
The second in the line’s Vista-class series, Carnival Horizon also includes features like the bike-ride-in-the-sky attraction called SkyRide, an IMAX Theatre, a Havana section with its own Cuban-themed bar and pool, and Family Harbor with extra-roomy staterooms and the Family Harbor Lounge.
