CARNIVAL NAMED TOP CRUISE LINE FOR FAMILIES

 CARNIVAL NAMED TOP CRUISE LINE FOR FAMILIES
 MIAMI, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Carnival Cruise Lines (NYSE: CCL),


whose "Fun Ships" offers special on-board programs for children and teens, has been named best family cruise choice for the second consecutive year by readers of Family Circle Magazine.
 Carnival won Family Circle's "Family Resorts of the Year" cruise award in 1991, the first time cruise lines were included in the magazine survey. Experts in family travel select nominees which readers rate for value, hospitality, facilities, accommodations and family programs.
 "We are grateful to Family Circle's readers for again selecting Carnival," said Bob Dickinson, the line's senior vice president of sales and marketing. "We've made our year-round children and teens program a top priority and it has been a great success in making cruising a viable vacation option for the entire family."
 Dickinson said about 70,000 youngsters annually join their parents vacationing aboard Carnival's nine "Fun Ships."
 He added that the Family Circle award emphasizes the value of cruise vacations which include almost everything in the fare -- accommodations, air travel, meals, entertainment, activities and special programs for children.
 A service especially appreciated by parents traveling with children, the company's youth program, "Camp Carnival," keeps the youngsters on board entertained day and night. Supervised activities for kids ages 4-7 (Junior); 8-12 (Intermediate); and 13-17 (Teen) range from playrooms and children's pools for the tots to video arcades and teen clubs for more mature youngsters.
 "Fun Ship" cruises feature special rates for children sharing their parents' cabin. High chairs, cribs and special children's menus are available at no additional charge and on-board babysitting services can be arranged, as well.
 Carnival offers three-, four- and seven-day cruises to the Bahamas, Caribbean and Mexican Riviera departing from Florida, California and San Juan. Popular land packages which can be booked in conjunction with Carnival cruises include Walt Disney World and Epcot Center in Orlando and Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif.
