Carnival Cruise Line chalks up record Cyber Monday sales

Carnival experienced Cyber Monday demand for cruises across its fleet, Christine Duffy said
Carnival Cruise Line posted a record Cyber Monday booking day that it said was 50% above volume for Cyber Monday 2019.

Carnival capacity has increased since 2019.

There is plenty of inventory to book, with November seeing Carnival Luminosa beginning service in Australia and Carnival Celebration from its Miami home plus three additional ships joining the fleet over the next 18 months.

24 Fun Ships in operation with 26 open for sale

This means 24 Fun Ships in operation, and 26 open for sale – some already into 2025 – with the pending arrival of Carnival Venezia and Carnival Jubilee.

Earlier this year, Carnival said that the one-week period of March 28-April 3 was its busiest booking week in company history, showing a double-digit increase from the previous record seven-day booking total. 

'The Cyber Monday sale activity showed consumer demand across the fleet, and we were particularly pleased with the booking activity for Carnival Venezia’s new year-round service from New York, and our new extended six-month program for Carnival Magic out of Norfolk,' Carnival President Christine Duffy said.

'Our very successful naming ceremony for Carnival Celebration on November 20 and all the media coverage it generated clearly kept Carnival top of mind as vacationers got started on their holiday shopping yesterday,' she added.
