Carnival Increases Travel Advisor Ship Tours, Seminars at Sea

Carnival Panorama Sea Trials

Carnival Cruise Line reports that, for 2020, it is increasing its number of ship tours for travel advisors by 25 percent to 200 – covering all 27 ships in the Carnival fleet – and nearly doubling its seminar at sea sailings to 17. 

With the introduction of the totally renovated Carnival Radiance this summer, Carnival will wrap up a decadelong $2 billion fleet-enhancement program that has touched every Carnival ship. While tours will be focused on the newest products — Carnival Panorama in early 2020, Carnival Radiance in the summer and Mardi Gras in the fall — visits will be hosted on every ship, Carnival said.

Ship tours are offered free of charge and include lunch on board. They are hosted by a Carnival business development manager or director who conducts a guided tour of staterooms, public rooms and deck areas. Specially priced seminars at sea provide agents an opportunity to cruise and attend onboard training sessions while sailing as a guest and experiencing shipboard activities, facilities and amenities. 

Advisors interested in taking a tour or seminar should register at or contact their Carnival business development manager.
