Another Carnival Ship North Americans Won't Be Sailing On

Because the day breaks earlier in Australia than it does in the US, our friends at Carnival Australia broke the news this morning of an addition to the Carnival Cruise Line fleet that won't be assigned to North American waters.

In a departure from the standard Carnival design, they will have neither any balcony staterooms nor water slide. Below is the press release they issued this morning:

Since our beginning, Carnival has been a pioneer in high seas travel. We are therefore proud to announce the newest vessel to our Australian fleet, a world-first in ocean tourism. Welcome to the next generation in cruising – Carnival Submarine.

Carnival Submarine is a totally immersive experience (literally!) that encapsulates everything unique about a traditional Carnival cruise combined with upgraded facilities and brand new additions to your favourite areas.

Your kids will love the newer, truer Camp Ocean, now with a full-length acrylic glass feature wall, transforming the space into an underwater aquarium. For fans of Alchemy Bar, why not pop in for one of two specially created cocktails: the Yellow Submarine and Deep Blue Sea. Afterwards, break out the bright colours for our newest theme night: Octopus’ Garden – bonus points for best sea creature inspiration. And for those who love the Green Thunder, be sure to try The Green Under – the fastest and steepest water-slide under the sea.

Carnival Submarine’s maiden voyage will be diving in January 2017. Be sure to book now for the world’s most innovative travel experience.
