The game itself offers what would be expected from a typical tycoon game. Users are in command of the ship and are responsible for the task of purchasing buildings and designing the layout. While gaining popularity, users also have an advantage to buy more ships and have a large fleet of ships going to exotic destinations. The game included Carnival logos and the entertainment and lounged available to add to the ships were named as per Carnival Cruise Lines standards. The ships you can work with in the game are: Sunshine (a cruiseferry only accessible as your first ship in the career mode), Celebration, Paradise, Carnival Legend, and the Carnival Conquest.
