Carnival is always rolling out new ships. And while the pace of newer vessels will likely slow following the pandemic, the cruise line still has a number of new ships. Mardi Gras, Panorama, and Horizon have all been introduced in recent years. Rightly so, many people are eager to sail these newer ships. But if you want a deal, look at the older ships in Carnival’s fleet. The vessels are still fantastic to sail, but don’t generate the buzz like a new ship does. Often you can find cruises for hundreds of dollars less, giving you a great vacation for less money.
