Girl Scouts triumphed with Carnival

Shown are the members of Girl Scout Troop 721 at the Mayan Ruins: Prerana Jasti, Poonam Vaidya, Courtney Kohanski, Ellyn Sinicropi, Bina Patel, Sarah Munson, Krisha Desai, Megan Whitworth, and Sonia Uthuph.

The Ambassador Girl Scouts from Troop 721 (Rainbow Stars Service Unit) were one of the first passengers on the Carnival Triumph when it left the Port of Galveston on June 13. As you can imagine, they really enjoyed the $115-million dollars in recent upgrades to the ship.

In Girl Scouting, travel is about fun, exploration and learning.  All of this occurred on the Triumph as the girls celebrated the accomplishments in Girl Scouting such as their Gold Awards. These Girl Scouts developed leadership skills and learned about other places and cultures on their recent cruise to Cozumel, Mexico.  While in Cozumel, the girls got to experience the Mayan Ruins and the Mayan way of life and of course, the beautiful beaches.

The cruise provided an opportunity for the girls to make new friends, to try new dining experiences, and to learn a whole new way to travel. The cruise also provided a sense of independence for the girls.

The combination of time together with the adults and on their own was easily accomplished on the cruise ship since it had plenty of space to wander and lots to do but also had very clear and reliable boundaries.

This trip resulted in the girls learning about each other and how to work and have fun together, even when you are making towel animals.
