Cruise Lines and Their Fabulous Cruise Ships!

There are so many cruise lines in the world today that I'm not sure that I would ever be able to research all of them. Some of these cruise lines have only one small cruise ship while others have many ships of varying sizes. I will identify only a few here and not in any particular order.

We will start with some of the better known cruise ship lines. The information here is as researched at the time of printing this article.

Carnival Cruise lines have those magnificent cruise ships dubbed "the fun ships". Carnival have 22 ships traveling a number of different itineraries offering appeal to a wide range of lifestyles and budgets.

Princess Cruises operated the cruise ship used in the T.V. series "The Love Boat". This cruise line operates 14 cruise ships in 3 classes seating from 670 to over 2600. The first episode of the series was shot aboard the original "Sun Princess" in 1977 and dramatically increased the cruise vacation popularity.  Try a romantic cruise getaway aboard a Love Boat!
