Carnival Cruise Lines

Carnival Cruise Lines were founded in 1972 and headquartered in Miami, is the world's largest cruise line. The company's humble origins pigeonholed the line as the cruise industry's version of a floating fraternity party for a long, long time. But that was yesterday, and while Carnival still commands a certain reputation for a flashy, neon atmosphere -- and by no means skimps on elaborate lounges and discos -- its ships continue to evolve. Home of the family-friendly Fun Ships, the cruise line are resorts in their own right, packed with entertainment.
