Does Size Matter? Carnival Ship Size Comparison [infographic]

Carnival Ship Size Comparison

Some prefer size, while others are more concerned with the motion in the ocean. Believe it or not, some actually prefer small ships. Hey, whatever floats your boat… we’re not here to cast judgements on your size preference, but rather to offer up helpful info to make your choice.

Below you’ll find a list of all Carnival Cruise Ships listed by size.  You can also gauge capacity by those little guys lining up next to the ship name.  One little man = an additional 100 person capacity.  They range from 5.076 (passengers & crew) on the Carnival Breeze, to 2,972 that can fit on the Carnival Inspiration.

  4. As I get older (76), I prefer the smaller ships, and can maneuver around better and faster. I have been on 20+ cruises, all sizes, and they are all amazing. I like larger cabins, and sometimes that is a problem.

    • I try to stay on ships under 500, such as Voyages of Discovery…less glitz, passengers more interested in adventure and discovery rather than food, more interesting itinerary and unique ports, better entertainment, just more enjoyable all Around
