Carnival Dream in Venice

ABOVE: A Carnival ship cruises down Venice's Giudecca Canal.

Carnival Cruises is the Coca-Cola of  American cruising: Its family-friendly brand is a household name, it has nearly two dozen ships, and it attracts new and experienced cruisers of all ages from all walks of life in the U.S. and Canada.

After a banner year in Europe during 2013, Carnival announced that it was pulling out of Europe for the 2014 season because of high translantic air fares.  If you're looking for an affordable mass-market cruise in Europe, we suggest trying Costa (a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation) or MSC.
