A pioneer in the concept of shorter, less expensive cruises, Carnival calls its ships The Fun Ships, and there are a wide range of activities offered on board.

    1. If You Insist That Carnival Owns Other Lines…They don’t, Carnival Corporation does and they keep all of them separate, offering everything from Luxury to Fun and everything in-between.
    2. Friends Uniting Neighbors (F.U.N.) Team is an employee-driven service group that volunteers time and effort to support local charities and organizations.
    3. Casino Players Get The Best Deals Often paying just port charges and taxes, Carnival values casino players and wants them on board, often giving away the cruise for the lowest rate of all.  Hmm, I guess they don’t always win?
    4. But Military Members Get A Deal Too – Often the lowest price, during special promotions that low military rate can be shared with friends and family on the same sailing.
    5. Gives Away Millions – Beating a goal of raising three million dollars in three years,  thanks to their guests, dedicated crews and generous travel partners, Carnival Cruise Lines is renewing their partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with the goal of raising $5 miCruise Competellion more over the next four years.
    6. Guests With Special Needs get the full Fun treatment on Carnival which has made substantial modifications to enhance your ability to move about their ships that feature Accessible Elevators at each elevator bank with tactile controls within reach of guests who use wheelchairs and audible signals for guest who are blind or with low vision.
    7. Carnival Gift Cards and E-Gift cards can be used on almost anything: towards the purchase of a Carnival cruise and redeemed onboard toward the Sail & Sign account for gifts, drinks, and fun.  Gift card owners can check the balance of their cards online too.
    8. Hey, We Have A Destination Focus Too, Shut It Up You Guys – Destination-focus is a big deal these days with a number of cruise lines claiming to be king of the destinations.  Guess what?  Carnival has been going there for decades.
