Experts Who Cruise on Carnival


Carnival Cruise Line refers to itself as the “Fun Ships” and for good reason. Carnival offers some of the most affordable cruises you can find. Nothing sensational or over the top – simply a fun cruising experience at an affordable price with enough stateroom categories to please most cruise patrons.



Carnival makes cruising affordable by offering from 3 to 18 night cruises. They have 22 ports of departure for super convenience, 14 of them in the continental U.S. Carnival has the largest fleet of ships in the industry, many of which are quite old by any standard. So we are happy to see they are investing $250 million to refurbishing and enhancing their original Fantasy-class of ships, including cell phone and Wi-Fi access.



Carnival Cruise Line was the first cruise line to focus on kids and Carnival remains a leader in kids and family onboard programs. First, kids are split into age groups - 2 - 5 years old, 6 - 8 years, and 9 - 11 years - all overseen by counselors with education or child-care experience.


The coolest new feature for kids is WaterWorks, anchored on the Sun Deck by the Twister waterslide. Some ships even have side-by-side racing slides and a huge bucket that water on those below. The SportSquare offer a basketball court, mini-golf course that lights up at night, exercise bikes, punching bags, and pool, foosball and ping pong tables.


The whole family can have fun together with Hasbro, The Game Show, which brings board games such as Connect 4 and Yahtzee to life on stage on several ships.



After being underwhelmed by Carnival Cruises we decided to give them a try. Our experience was an eye opener, a must read for any mass market cruise enthusiast. Read all about both of our recent Carnival Cruise experiences on different ships under different sets of guest settings.
