Best Large-Ship Cruise Lines: Carnival Cruise Lines

Andy Newman / Carnival Cruise Lines

No. 12 Carnival Cruise Lines

Carnival Cruise Lines is true to its name: the “Fun Ships” are outfitted with tons of amenities and onboard programs that are boredom-averse, among them, spiral waterslides, karaoke bars, and deck parties. What’s more, the line is in the process of rolling out a fleetwide $500 million “Fun Ship 2.0” initiative that will include burger joints by TV personality Guy Fieri and DJ Irie’s “Spin’iversity.”

What’s New: Look out for George Lopez’s touch on the fleet’s comedy clubs—he’s been appointed the line’s official “Curator of Comedy.”

Number of Ships: 23.

Destinations: 19 of Carnival’s 23 ships operate in the Caribbean on a year-round or seasonal basis; the line also ventures into Alaska, Canada, New England, Hawaii, and Europe.
