Comic duo Hamish & Andy have run amuck on Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Spirit during a 10-day cruise around the South Pacific, dubbed Hamish & Andy’s The People’s Cruise.
The radio pair took 110 of their listeners on The People’s Cruise, “cruising Australia home” for five days last week during their national drive-time slot on the Hit Network, as Carnival Spirit sailed from Sydney to Vanuatu.
It is no wonder the boys rated their time onboard Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Spirit as a career highlight, with time on the high seas spent advancing their skill tester prowess, farewelling dead thongs, cementing relationships with friendship bracelets, sitting for a portrait, riding the steepest and fastest waterslide at sea (check out Andy on the Green Thunder here) and even ate Carnival Spirit out of cheesecake.
According to Andy, the final broadcast was more exciting than the time they had Bono on the show, while Hamish said defeating his onboard nemesis Cash Crane was one of the greatest moments in his 12-year career in entertainment.
Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke, who joined The People’s Cruise, said it was a blast having two of Australia’s funniest personalities onboard Carnival Spirit.
“It was so exciting to have the free-spirited duo of Hamish and Andy share their cruise experience on Carnival Spirit with their 2.5 million listeners. For an entire week, they did a great job of bringing all the onboard fun to life for their fans back home in Australia,” Vandekreeke said.
Holidaymakers can follow in Hamish and Andy’s footsteps with a 12-night cruise on Carnival Spirit departing Sydney on August 18, 2016, and including calls to Mystery Island, as well as Noumea and Isle Of Pines in New Caledonia and Port Denarau and Suva in Fiji, priced from $699* per person quad share.
