Carnival cruises offer a wide array of quality cruises, and 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 world’s most beautiful ports.
With a fleet of 25 ships which is continually expanding, it’s no wonder Carnival are the world’s most popular cruise line company. Like all the other big cruise line companies, Carnival will take you to some of the world’s most exciting ports – what sets each ship apart is how they get you there. Every ship in the Carnival fleet features its own unique twist on Carnival-style fun and this means that no matter which Carnival cruise ship you pick, you’re always in for a great time.
The reason Carnival cruises are so popular is that you can sail with them to different destinations on different cruise liners and always get a unique experience. From the onboard activities and entertainment to the restaurants and bars to the spa and fitness facilities. Each one offers up something a bit different but amazing. The one thing that doesn’t change from ship to ship is the high level of customer service you will receive, making every guest on board these huge cruise liners feel like they are the only person on board. The latest addition to the fleet is the Carnival Vista with guest capacity of just under 4,000 and a crew of 1,055. This new cruise line has it all from basketball and dance classes to steakhouses and sushi restaurants.
