An exciting history

The launch of Carnival Cruise Line is a classic tale of the American Dream. Started by Ted Arison, we began operations in 1972 with a boatload of vision, a single secondhand ship and just enough fuel to make a one-way trip from Miami to San Juan. Carnival was founded on the principle that everyone deserves the right to a great vacation. Almost 50 years later, our mission remains the same – to deliver safe, fun and memorable vacations, at a great value.
