For three decades, an antique Rolls Royce has been sailing the high seas – on board Carnival Ecstasy. Now, the fixture will continue its travels on Carnival Cruise Line’s next new ship, Carnival Celebration.

The vintage car, a 1934 Rolls Royce Saloon, was carefully offloaded from Carnival Ecstasy while the ship was docked in Mobile, Alaska, on 16JUN. It is being carefully shipped to the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland where Carnival Celebration is under construction.

The car will soon find a new home adjacent to The Gateway, a two-deck zone aboard Carnival Celebration which celebrates travel and the excitement of exploring new destinations. The Gateway zone includes The Golden Jubilee, a bar venue highlighting Carnival’s evolution of ships over the last 50 years. The bar will feature memorabilia and original pieces from several of Carnival’s earlier vessels and so the Rolls Royce is intended to add to the nostalgia.

Carnival Ecstasy’s designer searched all over the U.K. to find the perfect car to fit the space outside the ship’s Rolls Royce Café. It was acquired from a small antique car dealer in the hills of Northern Wales. Carnival Ecstasy is finishing its final sailing season and will be retired in OCT 2022.

Carnival Celebration, the second of Carnival Cruise Line’s new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-powered ships will begin service in early NOV with a 14-day transatlantic voyage from London (Southampton) to its homeport of PortMiami. Its arrival will continue the celebration of Carnival Cruise Line’s 50th birthday.
