Now, i’m sure you’ve heard the saying SIZE MATTERS and that is a true statement when we talk about the ships of Carnival.

Carnival breaks down their ships via different classes which simply means how many tons they register at.

So, for today’s blog we will list the different classes and the gross registered tons of the various classes but to help you truly understand what GRT means here’s the definition for you.

Gross Registered Tonnage ( GRT) is the volume of space within the hull and enclosed space above the deck of a merchant ship which are available for cargo, stores, fuel, passengers and crew. Description: Gross Registered Tonnages are actually measurements of cubic capacity.

Now, that we have that out the way let’s get down to business.

Carnival offers it’s guest 9 different classes witiin their fleet with 29 ships and counting i’m sure.

Classes and gross registered tons:

  • Fantasy (70,000 grt)
  • Triump (102,000 grt)
  • Spirit (88,500 grt)
  • Conquest (110,000 grt)
  • Splendor (113.000 grt)
  • Dream (130,000 grt)
  • Sunshine (103,000 grt)
