Carnival Cruise Lines Australia



Formed in 2004, Carnival Australia is a branch of Carnival plc, and is the backbone of the cruise industry in the Australasia region. Carnival Cruises Australia has all the same values as the main Carnival Cruise company, however they have the regional expertise of only operating in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands. They have a fleet of two specially designed cruise ships that cater for the Australasian market and offer a wide range of cruises throughout the year from short 3 day trips to three week adventures.

Carnival is The World’s Most Popular Cruise Line® and they pride themselves on delivering memorable vacations to all their guests. A Carnival cruise offers not only outstanding value for the money, but most importantly, fun! A “Fun Ship” cruise features day and night time entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, casinos and more. They also make their guests feel right at home, too — think comfy stateroom accommodations, attentive service, delicious food and drink — and they enjoy the experience against the backdrop of some of the Southern Hemisphere’s most beautiful ports.


The Carnival Cruises Australia fleet comprises of two cruise ships; The Carnival Spirit and the Carnival Legend. These two super liners are both relatively ‘young’ when it comes to cruise ships and are therefore equipped with some of the latest features that make a cruise with Carnival so special. The Carnival Legend pays tribute to legends from the past from the Camelot and Avalon pools to the Club Merlin Casino – everything has a legends theme about it.

The Carnival Spirit’s greatest feature is her speed, taking you to destinations that may take other cruises lines 10 days longer to travel to. This means you get to see more of the world for less. Other features of the Carnival Spirit include the ocean views enjoyed by 80% of the staterooms of which 80% also have their own private balcony. Both ships in the fleet are well equipped and tailor-made for your voyages around Australia, New Zealand and beyond.
