Carnival introduced the concept of Fun Ships in 1972 and have been well known for providing family-friendly cruises on any budget ever since. With adult-only spa areas on selected ships, Carnival provides an onboard haven for honeymooners and good old romancers as well. The emphasis at Carnival is on big ships and big fun. Carnival's 2012 ship Carnival Breeze has a capacity of 3690 passengers, and will feature all the glitzy, award-winning stage shows, themed public areas and more entertainment and activities than you can fit in to one holiday.
Carnival's fleet includes 23 ships, sailing on cruises between 3 and 16 days in duration. Over 60 destinations are visited across the Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New England, Europe and Bermuda. Relaxing after a jam-packed day at sea or onshore is made easy with some of the most spacious staterooms around.
Kids are welcome to enjoy the fun on board a Carnival ship. For teens aged 15 to 17, there’s Club 02 - special space that effortlessly blends friends, music, entertainment, sports and style. All the Club 02 events, parties and activities are fully supervised for parent’s peace of mind. And children aged between two and 11 will love Camp Carnival with games, paints, crayons, a supervised pool area and everything else that young cruisers love. When parents cruise with Carnival, there’s a babysitting service between 10 pm and 3am every night.
Carnival specialises in offering, ‘Total Choice Dining.’ In essence holiday makers have the opportunity to choose how, where and when they enjoy their dining experience. This includes whether to eat indoors or al fresco and whether the setting is casual or formal. Dining in the relaxed elegance of the formal dining rooms is always a special treat with the tables set for a first-class dining experience. For more intimate dining, many Carnival ships feature a Manhattan-inspired supper club. On the other hand, there are casual restaurant choices that include midnight buffets, 24-hour pizza options, sushi bars and specialty cafés.
