[ANALYSIS] Carnival Cruise

I recently went on a cruise with Carnival Cruise Line, so it is only fitting to write a post about them. My first experience with them was great as you can see on the featured picture. First of all, if you plan on going on a Carnival Cruise more than once, you should definitely sign up for the loyalty program called the VIFP Club.

When I research for a cruise, aside from the best price, I also consider factors such as: destination ports, size of the ship and year it was build. I have also been on a Celebrity Cruise and a Royal Caribbean one as well. What I realized from all my experiences is that I want to have as many different stops as possible. It feels great to be able to visit so many different places in a such a short period of time.

The size has always been and will continue to be an important factor for me because I really prefer a bigger ship because it really does have more amenities. Being on a newer ship is always great because you get to experience all the new features, though a recently renovated and refurbished ship is also great to consider.

There is only one departing port in Canada for Carnival cruise, which is from Vancouver. From Vancouver, you will have 3 ships to choose from:
