Carnival Cruise Line has reached a monumental achievement in the cruise industry as the first cruise line to embark 100 million guests since its inception. The company celebrated the milestone aboard the Carnival Sunrise at its home port, PortMiami, with President Christine Duffy thanking guests for their continued support and making Carnival the world’s most popular cruise line since its founding in 1972.
The 100 millionth guest honour went to Debbie and David Clifford, vacationing from Ohio, who was greeted with fanfare and recognition from Duffy and the ship’s team members, led by Captain Luca Cherchi. The Cliffords were just one of the many guests embarking on the ship that day and were able to participate in the festivities, signifying how each guest is “One in 100 Million.”
Carnival President Christine Duffy expressed her excitement, stating, “We’re the first cruise line to meet this incredible mark of 100 million guests, and I believe it is a testament to the fun, inclusive atmosphere our valued guests and our extraordinary team members have created together on board our ships for the past 51 years. There is certainly much more fun to come. We’re continuing to grow our operations at a rapid pace – with three ships joining our fleet by the spring of next year.”
The company’s newest ship, the Carnival Celebration, is already proving popular with guests in its first few months of sailing from Miami, and another ship, Carnival Venezia, will debut in May, expanding the company’s New York offerings from seasonal to year-round. The new ship will bring to life a host of all-new “Carnival Fun Italian Style” experiences. Later this year, Carnival Jubilee, a third sister ship to Mardi Gras and Carnival Celebration, will join the fleet and sail from Galveston, Texas. In the spring of 2024, Carnival Firenze, a sister ship to Carnival Venezia, will begin offering year-round cruises from Long Beach, California.
Carnival’s continuous growth is a testament to its commitment to providing its guests with unique and unforgettable experiences. The company has always prioritized guest satisfaction, which is why it has earned the title of the world’s most popular cruise line. Its extensive fleet, excellent onboard entertainment, and fantastic dining options make for a fun and memorable vacation.
