American registered, multinational cruise company Carnival Corp. announced that four ships of its new fleet will break the current record for passenger capacity, according to the Miami Herald on June 15.
Carnival Corp. chairman Micky Arison noted that this announcement was unorthodox for the company, but they released the information since their boats would support the greatest number of passengers in the world. The boats would be able to carry 6,600 passengers.
Arison added that the new vessels’ design would make sure that each space would be fully utilized.
Two of the new megaships will be joining the AIDA fleet – which caters to the German market – by 2019 and 2020. As for the other two, they will either join the AIDA or the Italian cruises – the Costa Cruises.

Cruise company Carnival Corp. launched a tenth brand called “fathom” on June 4 marketed towards social responsibility, according to the Miami Herald.
The new cruise – although the company is hesitant to even call it that – will feature much of the usual cruise activities, such as wind surfing or hiking, but now passengers also have the chance to plant cacao, manufacture chocolate with and for a women’s cooperative, work with volunteer educators to teach English to children and adults alike, and build water filtration systems – all while traveling in Carnival’s ship.
According to research made by the company, it is highly likely that the fathom customer base will focus on three key groups: older millennials who possess disposable income, older adults who want to devote their time and not just their money to a cause, and families with children aged eight and above who want to spend a meaningful family vacation together.

The heads of Miami-based Royal Caribbean Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line, and Viking Cruises talked about onboard experiences and the importance of travel agents for cruise passengers when choosing a particular cruise line, among issues.
Royal Caribbean and Norwegian said cruise liners can cash in on the influx of passengers with amenities directed towards not merely the cruise-paying adult audience, but also to their children and parents/grandparents.
