The Fares

Carnival Cruise Lines prides itself on offering cruise prices that just about anyone can afford.

Generally, Carnival competes with only one other major Caribbean cruise line - Norwegian Cruise Line - to offer the lowest inclusive Caribbean cruise packages.

Additionally, the third, fourth and fifth persons in a cabin will get a discount – sometimes as much as half the fare of the first and second persons in the cabin. 

You will find the best cruise fares with Carnival.
