After a successful run earlier this year on the West Coast, Carnival’s Airship is making its debut over the New York region this week.
For the next four weeks, the #ChooseFun Airship will make its way over locations in all five boroughs of the city, major landmarks, New Jersey and Philadelphia as well.

After spending a week over Long Island, it will spend the first week of June soaring over New Jersey then wrapping up it’s tour over the Bronx and returning to Brooklyn.
