Carnival Cruise Line offers a record number of cruises from Australia

Carnival Cruise Line today launched its 2020 program, boasting a record number of 77 sailings from Australia to the South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia, offering more fun at sea than ever before.

On sale July 2018, Carnival’s 2020 program includes the first full year of sailings for Carnival Splendor, Australia’s newest and largest ship home ported year-round in Australia, sailing from Sydney.

Fares on the 8 night cruise to the South Pacific on Carnival Splendor, sailing from Sydney on 11 March 2020 start from $1,049 per person, interior twin share.

Following the news that Carnival Spirit will become the brand’s first-ever ship to home port in Brisbane, Queenslanders will benefit from unique itineraries including a 7-day cruise to the tropical wonderlands of Espiritu Santo, Mystery Island and Noumea.

Fares on the 7 night cruise to New Caledonia and Vanuatu on Carnival Spirit, sailing from Brisbane on 29 November 2020 start from $1,099 per person, interior twin share.

In yet another first for the brand, the new program also boasts a record number of 28 short cruises, giving Aussies and Kiwis the chance to sample all of the fun that Carnival has to offer, in five days or less.

Fares on the 3 night weekend sampler cruise on Carnival Splendor, sailing from Sydney on 28 August 2020 start from $499 per person, interior twin share.

Aussie holidaymakers also have the opportunity to sail on the popular repositioning cruise across the transpacific to Honolulu, with Carnival Spirit in 2020.

Rated as Australia’s favourite year-round cruise ship by members of Cruise Critic, Carnival Spirit has recently undergone a dry dock to receive a range of upgrades including new family-friendly entertainment features and world-class duty-free shopping experiences.

Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Australia, Jennifer Vandekreeke, said the brand was excited to reveal so many new and fun cruising options for Aussies as part of the program launch.

Sailings will open for sale in Polar in July. For more information and to book, visit your travel agent, carnival.com.au or call 13 31 94.
