Founded in the United States in 1972, Carnival Cruise Line is the largest cruise line in the world with almost five million guests travelling every year and 26 ships operating worldwide.
In 2014, Carnival Spirit, currently home ported year-round in Sydney, was joined by sister ship Carnival Legend which has been sailing on an extended summer season Down Under every year,
until recently departing for Carnival Splendor.
Carnival Spirit will reposition to Brisbane, its new home port, and sail year-round from October 2020. Carnival Splendor has joined the Australian fleet as of December 2019 and the ship
now calls her new home port Sydney. Carnival Splendor is the newest and largest ship home ported year-round in Australia.
Carnival sails from Sydney and will do so from Brisbane in 2020. Carnival's itineraries range from three-night short weekend getaways to 8-night South Pacific escapes to longer holidays between Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Hawaii.
With more than 45 daily activities from the thrilling Green Thunder waterslide, themed nights, live Broadway-style entertainment and the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss with Seuss at Sea™.
Carnival's ships offer fun-loving families and couples fun, memorable holidays at great value.
