Carnival Cruise Lines slashes prices in wake of ship problems

Beleaguered Carnival Cruise Lines is cutting prices by up to 40% in the UK on the back of a series of problems affecting its ships.

The discounts apply across 57 cruises in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Bahamas, Canada and New England, the Baltics and Hawaii for bookings made by April 30.

The price of a 12-day cruise on Carnival Legend from Dover to the Baltics on June 21 is down by £400 per person to lead in at £719.

Cruise-only rates on the rebuilt Carnival Sunshine in the Mediterranean are cut by up to £290pp to give a lead in of £589 for 12 nights from Barcelona departing on September 29.

A seven-day western Caribbean sailing on Carnival Dream on August 17 is cut by £150pp to £419 cruise only.

Four and five-day Canada and New England cruises on Carnival Glory are down by £110pp to start at £259.

The cuts follow the announcement of £500 million fleet-wide operational review in the wake of an engine fire which left Carnival Triumph stranded in the Gulf of Mexico and technical faults on some of the brand’s other ships.

UK managing director Adolfo Perez said: “Cruising always offers fantastic value and with this year’s sale being one of Carnival’s biggest ever, it ensures all our customers, both new and old get to enjoy the fun of a Carnival cruise at the best possible value.

“It’s a great opportunity for young families and first time cruisers to experience first class facilities on the ships and visit stunning destinations all at knock down prices.”
