Carnival

The worlds biggest and most popular cruise line, with 24 Las Vegas-resort-style ‘funships’, operates from 15 US ports to popular destinations including The Bahamas, Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Bermuda, Canada & New England and Europe, and in the near future, will also be adding Australia, New Zealand and SE Asia to its list of fabulous destinations.

Carnival has packaged a cruise experience that appeals to active cruisers of all ages. Although the ships' "fun" image is geared to the young, the average passenger's age is around 40 years . Carnival is a good choice for first time cruisers, couples, singles, and multi-generational families looking for a non-stop good time, glamorous surroundings and glitzy entertainment. 

Carnival is an equal-opportunity company and attracts the highest number of Indians, so much so that some of the top management are Indians who have risen from the ranks. At Carnival, they believe in frequent assessments and swift promotions for the deserving. Apart from offering great career growth, competitive pay and short renewable contracts, and a superb work environment, all these make Carnival the cruise line of choice for Indian hotel staff.    

 

Costa Crociere

Europe’s largest cruise line, Costa Crociere’s motto is "Cruising Italian Style". Costa has 15 large, diverse cruise ships that sail around Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. Although the ships are geared towards a young, active crowd, the average Costa cruiser is middle-aged and an experienced traveler from Europe  and America. Costa also promises "fun" cruises, but with a classy European ambience which is inclined towards all things Italian, with a casual, friendly, party atmosphere,  and Italian food.

 
 

Crystal Cruises

Crystal Cruises combines large ship diversity and variety of activities with small luxury ship service, sophisticated ambience, and excellent cuisine. Crystal currently has two ships which offer some of the best learning opportunities at sea, and passengers have lots of activities to keep them busy. The ships have a very high passenger to space ratio, giving them a spacious feel and lots of quiet areas. Blending these interesting onboard activities with worldwide itineraries makes for a wonderful cruise line. It is no surprise that Crystal has consistently been voted as the best luxury cruise line.

The typical Crystal passenger is affluent, educated, active, social, and friendly. Most passengers are well-traveled and middle aged (or older), but younger, sophisticated professionals also enjoy the Crystal experience.

MSC Cruises

MSC Cruises is an Italian cruise line that primarily attracts Europeans, but also markets extensively to mainstream North American cruise travelers. MSC features large resort-style ships that sail the Mediterranean, northern Europe, the Caribbean, South Africa, and South America.

MSC Cruises has 12 ships, and claims to have the world's youngest fleet. This young MSC fleet is modern and sophisticated, and innovations on the newest MSC ships include the MSC Yacht Club, a concept of a "ship within a ship" area for those passengers in the Yacht Club cabins.

MSC cruise ships have a decidedly European, cosmopolitan feel, and attract couples and families with children. The days and nights on the ships are filled with excitement and non-stop action. Due to the many nationalities (and many languages) represented onboard, the ships usually focus more on family and adult entertainment and activities.
