Carnival Cruise Line

Currently, Carnival is the largest cruise line in the world, based on passengers carried annually, annual revenue, and total number of ships in fleet, and one of ten cruise line brands owned by the world’s largest cruise ship operator, the American-British Carnival Corporation & plc. In 2018 Carnival Cruise Line was estimated to hold an 8.9% share of cruise industry revenue and 22.0% of all cruise passengers worldwide.

 

The funnels are shaped like a whale’s tail and it has an interesting history about it:

 

Carnival designer Joe Farcus apparently drew inspiration for the funnel from a somewhat unlikely source: the SS France, which was then sailing as the Norway for Norwegian Cruise Line. The France featured two funnels with wing-like protrusions on either side designed to carry engine exhaust out and away from the ship, rather than up through the top of the smokestack like many commercial liners.

 

CCL also holds some achievements that are REALLY interesting for their crew members, like some of the best salaries at sea, topping up almost other cruise line, making it very competitive for new candidates to choose between cruise lines while applying. General crew areas are very pleasing  and alcohol policies are somewhat loose, with maximum estimate of how much alcohol is in your blood being 0.08% while offduty, given that you can purchase any kind of hard liquor once the crew bar opens.
