New this year with the Agentpalooza tour is a T-shirt design contest that launches today. Agents may submit a rock&roll-inspired design to the line through April 25, 2018. A Carnival judging panel comprised of Perez, Carnival Cruise Line’s President Christine Duffy and Carnival Cruise Line’s Vice President of North American Sales Mike Julius will select a final design to be featured on the official 2018 Agentpalooza T-shirt. The winner will receive a seven-day Carnival Caribbean cruise and five runners-up will receive $100 gift cards. The T-shirts will be sold at each event, with all profits going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
