The man behind the mic - Mike Julius
Carnival Cruise Lines' new series of bi-weekly podcasts for travel agents highlight product innovations and developments, everything from new children’s programming and entertainment to dining enhancements, and itinerary trends.

Hosted by Mike Julius, senior managing director of US trade sales, each 10-minute 'Mike’s Mic' podcast will feature interviews with Carnival product experts and will be posted every other Friday on

'With these new podcasts, we’re helping agents increase their product knowledge—and ultimately their selling opportunities—with helpful information from leading experts in our industry,' Julius said.

The first podcast, currently available on, features an interview with cruise director Butch Begovich who discusses the recent enhancements to the children’s offerings, including the new Camp Ocean and Seuss at Sea programs.

Future podcasts will highlight topics such as dining and beverage trends, adult-only spaces, entertainment and more.
