The Mardi Gras will feature the first Roller Coaster at Sea! Overview This line’s combination of quality, value, and fun has made Carnival Cruise Lines the world’s most popular cruise line. Carnival Cruise Lines guests experience a considerable variety of onboard dining, entertainment, and activity options. The line is constantly upgrading its ships and adding new attractions. The ships of Carnival Cruise Lines have become increasingly popular with young families, and they carry more than 700,000 youngsters every year—more than half of all children who travel on a cruise. Carnival Cruise Lines’ vessels are known as “Fun Ships,” with non-stop, fast-paced, active fun. The ships are decorated in bright colors, with relatively spacious cabins, and varied entertainment and options. As most itineraries center on warm- weather destinations, upgraded water parks, slides, pools, etc. are major attractions on its ships. A Carnival Cruise Lines cruise will feature at least one formal evening (two during a one-week itinerary), with men wearing either tuxedos or jackets and ties and women wearing either gowns or cocktail dresses. The rest of the time, resort casual attire prevails. Given the large number of children found on a Carnival Cruise Lines ship, especially during school holidays, it’s appropriate that the ships have adults-only outdoor areas, comedy performances for adults in addition to family-friendly shows, and large, full-featured spas. Carnival Cruise Lines’ ticket prices and frequent promotions offer solid, sometimes unbeatable, value. Although the line’s marketing reflects a youthful image, its demographic indicates an average age of 45+. This average includes the growing number of families with young children who travel on Carnival ships. Many passengers will be first- time cruisers, couples, singles, and multi-generational families looking for good value in cruising and a wide range of entertainment and dining options.
