OUR 2020 NATIONAL INTELLIGENTSIA AWARDEES
Congrats to our Award Nominees
The CWSC Board of Directors is pleased to release the list of Nominees to receive recognition at the National Intelligentsia Interfaith Cruise Gala & Awards Celebration.
The year 2020 marks the 10th Anniversary of American Muslim 360 Radio Network (AM360.org) and the 6th year of corporate operations for its parent corporation, the CWSC. A tremendous amount of work has been invested to help build our national intelligentsia by some very dedicated CWSC volunteers, as well as other organizations and leaders working in tandem and supporting CWSC’s and AM360’s community-development and national resource center work in this shared freedom space of community service.
May Allah (SWT) bestow His Mercy upon them, forgive them and grant them Sadaqa Jarriyyah in Paradise.

Thursday, March 5 – 9, 2020 Carnival Paradise
Departure port: Tampa, FL Port of call: Cozumel, Mexico. See also Pre-Cruise Tampa, Florida Events.
We broke the mold after we made this one. The final Fantasy class cruise ship ever created, Carnival Paradise is proof that there’s plenty of fun to be found long before you reach your dream destination.
While we’ve never stopped adding the latest and greatest features to the ship, this ship remains classic Carnival — fun-packed from bow to stern. With so much of it indoors, outdoors and everywhere in between, Carnival Paradise features great times in and near the water courtesy of hot tubs, pools and a WaterWorks waterpark featuring a giant spiraling slide and dual racing slides. For those who appreciate a good story, there’s Seuss at Sea with an interactive storytime and parade!
On the food front, aboard this ship there’s two of our top casual spots: Guy’s Burger Joint, featuring the goods from Guy Fieri, and BlueIguana Cantina, with authentic south-of-the-border taco/burrito goodness. Refreshments — and good times — abound. And a little closer to home (well, your vacation home), Carnival Paradise now features even more staterooms with a balcony. Feel that breeze!
Spend a vacation aboard Carnival Paradise, and you’ll find a little slice of cruise ship paradise at sea.
