Hot on the heels of Norwegian Cruise Line's plans to send its second Breakaway Plus class ship to China, Carnival Cruise Line has announced its plans for its own operations in the region. 

Carnival said that it would begin cruise operations in China starting in spring 2017 with one vessel based in China year-round offering cruises marketed to Chinese guests. Some aspects of the shipboard experience will be modified to cater to Asian tastes.

The company will be partnering closely with sister company Costa Asia for sales, marketing and operational support. Carnival Cruise Line’s China operations will also utilize the services of the newly announced Carnival Corporation Shared Services Group based in Shanghai.

Additional details will be announced in the near future, including specific ship and itinerary information.
