Carnival Cruise Line is "The World's Most Popular Cruise Line®", with 24 ships offering cruises in The Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New England, Europe, Bermuda, South America and Panama Canal as well as Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Founded in the United States in 1972, Carnival Cruise Line burst onto the Australian cruise scene in 2012, basing Carnival Spirit year-round in Sydney. In 2014, Carnival Spirit was joined by sister ship Carnival Legend which sails on an extended summer season Down Under every year.

Carnival has recently announced it will expand its Australian operations to two full-time ships from 2020, with more details to be revealed in 2018.

Between them, Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend carry tens of thousands of Australians and New Zealanders on great value holidays, packed full of fun, every year. With sailings from Sydney and Melbourne, itineraries range from three-night weekend escapes to 8-night Pacific Island holidays and longer journeys between Australia and Asia or Hawaii.

From their distinctive Green Thunder waterslides – the fastest and steepest at sea – to their professional stage shows and family friendly games and activities, Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend promise an unforgettable cruise experience for all the family.
