Arnold Donald, Carnival Corporation’s president and chief executive, raised eyebrows at Clia’s Cruise360 conference when he revealed a “Travel Agents Rock” tattoo on his chest.

Donald, one of the keynote speakers at the three-day event in Fort Lauderdale, US, was pictured smiling with his shirt unbuttoned, showing the tattoo.


Adolfo Perez, Carnival Cruise Line’s vice president of sales and trade marketing, had the same three-inch logo inked permanently on his left arm in front of 150 agents at last year’s Agentpalooza event in New Orleans.

However, Donald’s effort is unlikely to cause quite as much of a stir after Carnival Cruise Line confirmed to Travel Weekly it was a temporary tattoo.

Travel Agents Rock is the the tag line for the cruise company’s trade campaign in the UK.
