New ‘SPIN U’ DJ Academy is in session!

Carnival Cruise Lines, known for being all about fun onboard, has teamed up with legendary DJ IRIE – the official DJ of Carnival and the Miami HEAT to create Spin U, a new shipboard DJ academy exclusively for teens ages 15-17. DJ IRIE has entertained crowds from South Beach and Vegas to Paris and Brazil – literally a global superstar!

Part of the line’s popular Club O2 teen programme and inspired by DJ IRIE’s own Spin’iversity –a customized training programme exclusively for developing Carnival’s shipboard DJs – Spin U is designed to provide aspiring spin-masters all they need to know about this emerging art form, from bringing a crowd to its feet to pumping up the dance floor with energy and excitement.

Under the guidance of Carnival’s talented and energetic shipboard pro DJs, Spin U students will learn how to operate the latest mixing and sound equipment as well as how to read a crowd and tailor song selections from every musical genre to keep the party moving, while making maximum use of their own personality to create their own memorable DJ persona.

There will be 3 different Spin U packages will be offered:

Intro – a free 30-minute introductory session that includes an overview of equipment basics and spinning and mixing techniques.

DJ 101 – a 45-minute programme that expands upon the Intro programme with a comprehensive overview of both mixing and scratching. Cost is $20.

DJ Master – comprised of three one-hour sessions, DJ Master is exactly what the name implies, helping participants master the art of mixing, mic skills and understanding song structure and transitions. After selecting their own creative DJ moniker, DJ Master students participate in a “Battle of the Beats” against other up-and-coming DJs with one lucky DJ entertaining guests poolside on Lido deck. Cost for the three-session programme is $99.
