Carnival Cruise Line was established by Ted Arison in 1972 and it’s committed many years to fine tuning its services and accommodations to impress travelers and make them return again and again. Currently, his son, Micky Arison operates it on a daily basis. Carnival Cruise Line is located in Miami and is definitely the world’s biggest, with 23 vessels presently cruising in their fleet. It’s also the leading line of Carnival Corporation, which has 11 distinct brands beneath its corporate umbrella.
The growth of Carnival Cruise Line is rather an extraordinary account. It started out being a single vessel enterprise. The first ship in the fleet was the Mardi Gras and on her initial trip for the business in 1972 she ran aground near Miami. This might have been a sudden ending to a lot of companies, but the imaginative, vision and resolution of Ted Arison got them around this very first difficulty and steered them on to much larger and better things.
Carnival Cruise Line offers 23 “Fun Ships”. You can travel between three to seventeen days, and Carnival cruises sail towards the Bahamas, the Caribbean islands, Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, Bermuda, Europe, the Panama Canal, and New England/Canada. In the beginning of this year, Carnival introduced a new vessel around Australia, and their other newest addition the Carnival Breeze. It has become the most sailed cruiselines with approximately 4 million passengers a year.
Carnival Cruise Line’s Holiday Class includes only one ship, which is the littlest and most seasoned of the whole fleet. It leaves out of Alabama with westward Caribbean destinations. The largest group of ships in the fleet is the Fantasy Class, with eight, and has cruises from as short as three days and as much as seven days in length to the Caribbean, Mexico and the Bahamas. Ships in this class consist of Carnival Paradise, Carnival Elation, Carnival Inspiration, Carnival Fascination, Carnival Imagination, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Ecstasy and Carnival Fantasy.
The vessels of the Carnival Cruise Line are quite noticeable as every one has the big crimson, white and blue smoke stacks. There is also a fleet mascot, “Fun Ship Freddie”, who makes regular appearances throughout the cruises.
