Carnival Cruise Line

If you’re thinking of cruising, there’s a very good chance you’re considering a Carnival cruise. Growing since our founding in 1972, Carnival Cruise Line — “The World’s Most Popular Cruise Line®” — now carries millions of guests every year. The game-changing Mardi Gras™ set sail not long ago, and now it’s finally time to check out the transformed Carnival Radiance™. And while they’re a little further out, we’re already excited about Carnival Celebration™ (fall 2022) and Carnival Jubilee™ (2023) joining the fleet!

Carnival Cruise Line is proud to be part of a family of companies owned by Carnival Corporation, which includes sister lines Princess Cruises, Holland America Line and Cunard Line, among others.

At Carnival Corporation & plc, our highest responsibility and top priorities are to operate safely, to protect the environment, and to be in compliance everywhere we operate in the world. On this foundation, we aspire to deliver unmatched joyful vacations for our guests, always exceeding their expectations and in doing so, driving outstanding shareholder value. We are committed to a positive and just corporate culture, based on inclusion and the power of diversity. We operate with integrity, trust and respect for each other – seeking collaboration, candor, openness and transparency at all times. And, we intend to be an exemplary corporate citizen, leaving the people and the places we touch even better than before we touched them.

In a nutshell… we’re all about fun vacations at sea and ashore! A Carnival cruise features day and nighttime entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, deck parties, casinos and more. (Like what? Like waterslides!) We invite our guests to come as they are, and we make everyone feel right at home with comfy staterooms, attentive service, casual and elegant dining, plus a variety of bars and gathering places indoors and out. Guests enjoy this unique experience against the backdrop of some of the world’s most beautiful seaports.

Our 23 ships operate 2- to 23-day voyages, departing from every coast in the U.S. While we’re best known for Caribbean cruises, we sail to other exotic and amazing destinations like Mexico, Alaska, The Bahamas, Europe and Hawaii. Additionally, Carnival Cruise Line Australia has two ships, and offers cruises from Sydney and Brisbane to New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Carnival Cruise Line proudly supports important causes like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and Operation Homefront. indicates external site which may or may not meet accessibility guidelines
