The launch of Carnival Cruise Line is a classic tale of the American Dream. Started by Ted Arison, the company began operation in 1972 with a vision, a single secondhand ship and just enough fuel to make a one-way trip from Miami to San Juan. Carnival was founded on the principle that everyone deserves the right to a great vacation. For over 45 years and 80 million guests, our mission has been to make fun, memorable vacations accessible to all. Each time a guest sails with us, Carnival creates an environment where guests can be the truest and most fun versions of themselves.
