About Us

WHO WE ARE


DELIGHTING FOLKS. WINNING AWARDS.

We introduced ourselves to the world in 1972 as "The Fun Ships." It was appropriate then, and it's still an important part of who we are. But in 2008 we shook things up with a rallying cry of "Fun for all, all for fun!" It seemed like the kind of thing you could really raise a glass to.

And today? We’re keeping it simple — we invite folks to "Choose Fun." We think it just fits.

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 passengers every year. Our newest ship is Carnival Horizon, which debuted in April, and we’re introducing the new Carnival Panorama and the totally transformed Carnival Sunrise setting sail in 2019.


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.


WHAT WE DO

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 26 ships operate 3- to 24-day voyages, departing from every coast in the U.S., as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and Barbados. While we’re best known for Caribbean cruises, we sail to other exotic and amazing destinations like Mexico, Alaska, The Bahamas, Cuba, Hawaii and the Far East. Additionally, Carnival Cruise Line Australia now has three ships, and offers cruises from Sydney and Melbourne to New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Singapore.


Carnival Cruise Line proudly supports important causes like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
