Carnival Reiterates Importance of Appropriate Attire in Ports of Call

Carnival Cruise Line emphasizes the importance of appropriate attire in different ports of call and being mindful of local laws in various countries.

This reminder comes after an incident on the Carnival Venezia’s Southern Caribbean voyage, where a guest was escorted by Barbados police back to the ship for wearing camouflage clothing, a prohibited attire in several Caribbean nations.

Despite claims of insufficient notice, Carnival stated that guidelines were communicated through onboard announcements and newsletters. The line stresses the importance of respecting local dress codes to avoid such incidents.

Residential Cruise Line Fails to Acquire Target Ship

But they are not the only ones having trouble producing a ship.

Storylines, another startup, ambitiously plans to build a new cruise ship despite skepticism and financial challenges, with its launch postponed to late 2026.

Both companies have already taken in millions of dollars with no ship to show.

The World, a residence ship launched in 2002, is the only notable exception.
