Carnival Cruise Lines continues to redefine contemporary cruising with “Today’s Carnival”, a term coined to describe Carnival’s commitment to enhancing all aspects of the “Fun Ship” vacation experience.
"From upgraded cuisine and new and expanded facilities to a greater variety of onboard activities and shore excursions, a ‘Fun Ship’ cruise is significantly different from just a few years ago,” said Bob Dickinson, Carnival president and CEO. “‘Today’s Carnival’ reflects the lengths we will go to keep our product fresh and exciting for our guests,” he added.
Dining is considered the highlight of any “Fun Ship” vacation and “Today’s Carnival” has resulted in a diversity of new dining options and enhancements. Carnival’s Total Choice Dining(SM) is the cruise industry’s most comprehensive dining program offering the widest variety of formal and casual options at sea.
Stay in Touch "Today’s Carnival” has also resulted in the introduction of fleetwide Internet cafes where guests can access e-mail and Web sites, obtain news updates and send video postcards to friends and family back home.
Entertainment options have also become more varied, with dazzling revues featuring high-tech video projections, lasers, pyrotechnics, and elaborate sets and costumes presented in multi-decked show lounges, some of which can accommodate up to 1,500 guests.
Everyone Needs Pampering Sometime Responding to the needs of today's health-conscious consumers, Carnival continues to update the impressive array of exercise equipment and pampering treatments available within its fleetwide "Spa Carnival" which, comprise some of the largest floating health clubs in the world.
Shore excursions have also been expanded to keep pace with today’s active lifestyles, with adventure-type tours such as kayaking, scuba diving and flightseeing complementing more traditional activities as nature walks and city tours.
Children and Teens are Important too Carnival continues to expand the myriad activities, amenities and facilities of “Camp Carnival”, the industry’s top-rated children’s program. Recent enhancements include high-tech play areas featuring computer labs and indoor climbing mazes, as well as updated kids’ menus and a new turn-down service providing children with freshly baked cookies on the first and last night of their voyage. Teens-only shore excursions are also available.
Carnival is the largest and most popular cruise line in the world, with 20 “Fun Ships” operating voyages of three to 16 days in length to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, the Panama Canal, New England, Canadian Maritimes and Bermuda.
