From the A for effort department:

Last weekend's announcement of the updated list of Seven Wonders of the World must have caught Carnival's attention because on Tuesday they issued a press release reminding everyone that Carnival Cruise Lines sails to each of the Seven Wonders of the Caribbean. Did you even know there were seven wonders in the Caribbean?

In case you didn't, Carnival says they are Chichen Itza (via Progreso and Cozumel),
Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System (via Roatan and Belize), El Morro Castle (San Juan), Tulum (via Calica and Cozumel), Trunk Bay Beach (via St. Thomas), the Panama Canal (via Colon), and
The Baths (via Tortola). If that's not enough, they came up with three runners up (in case the winners are unable to fulfil their duties at any time during their reign). They are: El Yunque Rainforest (via San Juan), The Basilica at Higuey (via La Romana, DR), and Chacchoben Mayan Ruins (via Costa Maya).

The biggest wonder to me is how they came up with this.
