Travel with one of the most popular
cruises in the world
Carnival Cruise Lines pioneered cruise travel by making it accessible to practically everybody. Some might consider it the "most common" of large ship cruising because the company focuses on its “Fun Ship” image and ultra-casual atmosphere.
It offers plenty of children’s programs that is much more than just plain babysitting, making it very attractive for families to choose this type of travel.
But Carnival Cruise Lines also attracts people from all walks of life. There are families with very young children, surely, along with the lanky teenagers.
There's room for the young couple celebrating their first year anniversary as well as older seniors enjoying another of their several repeat cruises.
And the young and single party goers, a remnant of Carnival's infamous beginnings, are also welcome here.
Carnival Cruise Lines definitely broke away from the old image of cruising as the place for stuffy, snobbish folks and made it appealing to younger travelers.
Carnival created highly successful packages for weddings at sea and family reunions. They clearly know what the market is looking for.
It's main company - Carnival Corporation - also owns many of the well-known cruise lines all over the world.
So if you decide to take more cruises but with a different brand then there's a very good chance you'll be cruising with the Carnival group again.
These cruise lines owned by the Carnival Corporation include Holland America, Princess, Cunard, Seabourn, Costa, P& O and P& O Australia, Aida and Ibero Cruces.
Although all these cruise companies cater to different kinds of travelers and markets, they all belong under the same corporation.
The Fun Ship atmosphere gives first-time or reluctant sea travelers a taste of the cruise experience.
After that, they can decide if it's really not their style of travel, or they just might do this again a few more times, or they become raving cruise fans and get hooked for life.
