Rolls Royce moves from Carnival Ecstasy to Carnival Celebration

Rolls Royce moves from Carnival Ecstasy to Carnival Celebration

The antique car has been sailing on Carnival Ecstasy for three decades

An antique Rolls Royce that has been sailing on Carnival Ecstasy is now moving to Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Celebration.

The vintage car, a 1934 Rolls Royce Saloon, was carefully offloaded from Carnival Ecstasy while the ship was docked in Mobile, Alabama last week (June 16) and is being shipped to the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland, where Carnival Celebration is under construction.

Watch a time-lapse video of the vehicle being unloaded: 

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. 

Until now the car has been located outside Carnival Ecstasy’s Rolls Royce Café, having been acquired from a small antique car dealer in northern Wales. Carnival Ecstasy is finishing its final sailing season and will be retired in October.

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