Carnival Dream

It's time to start livin' the dream with our most visionary ship yet. First setting sail in September 2009, CARNIVAL DREAM was designed to be the largest and most innovative floating resort in our "Fun Ship" fleet. Among many amazing features, she will boast more outdoor deck space, more stateroom categories, the largest spa we've ever built, Carnival Waterworks and a new dining and entertainment complex called The Piazza.

Carnival Ecstasy

Like her sister ship Sensation, Ecstasy has undergone a refurbishment after assisting with relief issues following Hurricane Katrina. A mini-golf course was created, and Camp Carnival was relocated and given more room – which is important because at one point there were more than six hundred children registered with the Camp during a single spring holiday week! There’s a new Internet cafe and a late afternoon sushi bar. There’s no adults only pool and this ship is notable for the number of passengers who have two, three or more young children in tow.

Carnival Elation

Making her debut in 1998, Carnival Elation has become a firm favourite with people that appreciate her expansive, breezy open spaces and casual, freewheeling on board vibe. With upper deck pools and a stunningly beautiful atrium lobby, Carnival Elation is a ship that offers ample opportunities for indulgent fun in the sun, or just total relaxation in a stylish, laid back resort style of ship.

Carnival Fantasy

The pioneer Carnival mega cruise ship, Carnival Fantasy first entered service in 1990, but she has been updated many time since. Today, with her RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar, she is as refreshingly up to date and brimming with fun things to do as any of her fleet mates. From the tranquil relaxation areas of her upper deck spa, to the full on, fast paced floor shows hosted in her multi level show theatre, the Carnival Fantasy truly does live up to her name.

The Carnival Fascination is one of the line's seven Fantasy class ships.

Expected to make waves in 2018 the Carnival Horizon plans to unite the best of all their previous ships.

One of the original seven Fantasy class ships, Carnival Imagination offers everything you could want on a cruise.

One of the most bubbly and vibrant cruise ships afloat, Carnival Imagination packs a lot of holiday into a short amount of time.

Carnival Legend

Carnival Legend is one of the four- ship 'Spirit' class owned by the company. She came into service in 2001, and marked an entirely new design for the company. With expansive, aft facing decks and a pool area with a sliding glass roof in the middle of the ship, Carnival Legend is a stunning, contemporary cruise ship that, because of her clever design, still manages to feel surprisingly intimate in many areas.

Carnival Liberty

Carnival Liberty is 110,00 tons of sun kissed fun on the ocean; a fully inclusive resort hotel that moves the scenery while you drink, dine and dance through the time spent on board. With multiple pools, bars and even a small shopping arcade, this vast, vivacious ship has everything you could possibly need for the ultimate holiday, and possibly a few surprises along the way, too.

Carnival Magic

The 130,000-ton, 3,690-passenger Carnival Magic, the second in Carnival's Dream class, is set to launch in May 2011. The first-in-class Carnival Dream debuted in September 2009. Much of what's found onboard Carnival Dream will be on sister ship Carnival Magic, including the 11,250-square-foot adults-only Serenity area.

Carnival Miracle

Miracle’s theme is fictional icons – everybody from Superman to Hercules Poirot! She’s one of the slim, fast Spirit class of cruise liners and passengers can expect a streamlined experience except at dining hours, when queues do still form. The Frankenstein’s Lab night-club is a high point, used by teenagers until midnight it becomes a surprisingly jolly late bar for adults afterwards. 80% of her cabins are outdoor ones, which is good news for those who get claustrophobic without a window.

View cruise deals View details

Carnival Paradise

The Fantasy class of Carnival cruise liners (Fantasy, Ecstasy, Inspiration, Imagination, Fascination, Elation, Sensation and Paradise) are all undergoing, or have undergone, major refurbishments as part of the Evolutions of Fun programme. For Paradise this has delivered upgraded cabins and a redesigned spa, but because this cruise ship takes short cruises only (three days up to a week at most) there are none of the luxury cabins and suites found on other Carnival Vessels.

Carnival Pride

Carnival Pride’s theme is beauty, which has raised a few eyebrows among more conservative American customers, but if you’re not likely to be offended by nude male statue in the dining room, or bare breasts by Rubens in the corridors, then this ship has a great deal to offer.

Carnival Sensation

Launched in 1993, Carnival's Sensation underwent a significant refurbishment before re-entering service in 2006 after helping with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Carnival Spirit

Spirit is one of the Carnival liners that cruises to Alaska, which gives her passenger profile two distinct patterns – older, quieter passengers on the Alaskan trips and younger (or multi-generational) groups on the other, generally Mexican, sailings. Some people find the ‘Spirit’ theme confusing – it does mean that every public room on the ship has a different decorative style: the spirit of China, the spirit of Egypt and so on. Notable features here are the wedding chapel, which is lovely, and the gym which offers cruise travellers superb views out over the ocean while they exercise.

Carnival Splendor

Much more than nice, grand, pleasing or pretty, everything about this floating resort will be nothing less than splendid. From the Gold Pearl restaurant and the Red Carpet dance club to the California Roll sushi bar and Royal Flush casino, everything aboard this fabulous new ship will be a celebration of life's splendid moments.

Carnival Sunshine

Fresh off a multi-million dollar refurbishment, the Carnival Sunshine is better than ever and packed with places to have fun. With three pools, a variety of eateries, lounges, nightclubs, a friendly casino, duty-free shopping and Spa Carnival, a cruise on this amazing Fun Ship is the vacation you were born to take. Ship's Registry: The Bahamas.

Carnival Triumph

There tends to be a big plus and a big minus to Carnival Triumph – and taking those into account when choosing your cruise will help you understand this: the downside is that many, many cruise passengers complain that they find the ship’s layout confusing. Even regular cruisers say it takes three times as long to learn their way around the ship as usual. That’s the downside, so what’s the upside?...

View cruise deals View details

Carnival Valor

Valor has many things going for her, but her layout can cause head-scratching, to say the least. As an example to get to the Internet café you have to go into Winston's Cigar, the ship's lounge for cigar smokers, meaning that non-smokers have no choice but to bring a laptop and use the ship wide wifi, or indulge in passive smoking. That aside, the ship is fun-filled with a good children’s activity programme and their own wading pool. Fellow passengers will tend to be predominantly American with only 30% of them being over 55, according to Carnival.

Carnival Victory

One of Carnival’s Destiny class of ships, Victory was launched in 2000 and has had a 2007 refurbishment, but despite this, most travellers feel she has an ambience that ranges from ‘comfortable’ to ‘well-worn’ depending on who you speak to!

Carnival Vista

The first of two new sister ships, Carnival Vista is the largest ship in the current fleet. While brim full of all the seagoing fun and sizzle of the other 'Fun Ships', the size of the new ship has allowed her to introduce some new features that are all of her own.

If you’re still not tired, then there’s a fitness centre, yoga & pilates classes and a host of other sports activities to keep you feeling fit and healthy during your cruise.
