With all cruises from North America shut down over the past six months, Carnival Cruise Line has downsized and sold four of their older cruise ships.

Carnival had eight Fantasy class ships and the class was the largest in their fleet. The ships are also their smallest coming in at around 71,000 gross tons. The vessels carry just over 2,000 passengers at double occupancy and were the least efficient ships for the cruise line.

Carnival Cruise Line now has just four Fantasy class ships in their fleet after selling Carnival Fantasy, Carnival Inspiration, Carnival Imagination, and Carnival Fascination.

Carnival Cruise Line’s fleet of 23 cruise ships is now as follows:

Fantasy Class

  • Carnival Ecstasy
  • Carnival Sensation
  • Carnival Elation
  • Carnival Paradise

Spirit Class

  • Carnival Spirit
  • Carnival Pride
  • Carnival Legend
  • Carnival Miracle

Conquest Class

  • Carnival Conquest
  • Carnival Glory
  • Carnival Valor

Sunshine Class
