The enduring and popular game show Family Feud will be introduced to 12 additional Carnival Cruise Line vessels by the fall of 2024.
Family Feud Live is Carnival’s version of the beloved TV series. It quickly became a passenger favorite since offering it on Mardi Gras in 2021 and Carnival Celebration in 2022 following a 2019 announcement. According to the cruise company’s vice president of entertainment, Chris Nelson, cruisers love it because it gives them a unique opportunity to be part of the 47-year-old television show.
“Family Feud Live is such a fun and unique entertainment option because guests get into the action and participate like they’ve watched the game played on TV,” he said.
Nelson added that they want more guests to enjoy the fun-filled experience. He explained, “Building on its popularity by bringing it to more ships will ensure that more of our guests get to experience the fun and friendly competition of Family Feud Live.”

Does Carnival have plans to stage the game across its remaining ships? Though the cruise operator hasn’t released any information about it yet, the decision will no doubt be influenced by its licensing agreements with Fremantle and each vessel’s technical capabilities.
