Royal Caribbean isn’t the only cruise line trying offload ships at the moment. Carnival Corporation — parent of Carnival, Princess, and many other lines — announced it would dispose of 13 ships. That number was later increased to 15. It recently announced that two of those ships — Carnival Fantasy and Carnival Inspiration — have already been sold.
