About Carnival Cruises

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. Our newestest additions, Carnival Celebration™ and Carnival Luminosa™, both debuted last year. Carnival Venezia™ debuts this May, and we're already excited about Carnival Jubilee™ setting sail this November, plus Carnival Firenze™ sailing in 2024!

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.

Carnival Corporation, parent company of Carnival Cruise Line and other great brands, is the global leader in the cruise industry, leading the way in innovative and sustainable cruising to deliver memorable vacations and build borderless connections. But we never forget to create unforgettable happiness for our guests during their extraordinary cruise vacations, all while honoring the integrity of every ocean we sail, place we visit and life we touch.

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 24 ships operate 2- to 31-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.
