Carnival Cruise Line – Ships
The Carnival Fleet is the largest of any cruise line. The earliest ships built by Carnival were for 2,000 guests. Through the years they also added on ships for about 3,000 passengers. Starting in 2009, they moved to ships of 3,700 guests with the Dream, Magic and Breeze. With the Vista, Carnival created its first 4,000 passenger ship.
Carnival’s ships all have a similar look and feel. The red, white and blue funnel stack easily sets them apart from their competition. The funnel looks like a whale’s tail.
Carnival Cruise Line – Destinations
Carnival’s Destinations are also distinct from other cruise lines. They concentrate heavily on 2 – 5 day sailings. Carnival starts their cruises in USA ports and often depart from smaller towns on the east or gulf coasts. As a consequence, the Bahamas and the Caribbean are their most common destinations. Carnival also visits Alaska and in 2018 began sailing in the Mediterranean. Carnival’s web site makes it easy to understand which of Carnival’s ships depart from a port near you.
