Carnival Cruises

  • Overview

The “World’s Most Popular Cruise Line” are famed for the fun, American-style cruising experience ever-popular with families. It has expanded dramatically since its Florida conception in 1972, with 23 ships in the fleet. Flagship Carnival Magic holds almost 5000 passengers, and since Carnival Legend started sailing from Dover in 2013, Mediterranean/European trips are becoming hugely popular in the UK

Many describe the ships as a floating family-friendly Las Vegas, with glamorous décor, and an abundance of kids activites, exuberant cabaret performances, live music and all-you-can-eat buffets fit for a king. Gastronomic delights can be tasted on board, with some menus curated by Michelin starred chef Georges Blanc. Staterooms are 50% larger than contemporary cruise lines, whilst 80% have ocean views, meaning there’s more space for you to lounge in your room and take in the views.

Be sure to check out the Seaside Theatre, which supplies hot new movies on a huge on-deck screen.

Trips to Alaska are hugely popular, allowing guests to see the majestic glacier passages and natural wildlife. Exotic locations in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Hawaii are also hot destinations.

If you love affordable, exciting, action packed fun for all the family to enjoy, this could be the perfect cruise line for you.
