By Trbeditor |

The Carnival Venezia begins cruising on 15 June.

Carnival Cruise Line has once again partnered with LVMH Moët Hennessy company Starboard Cruise Services to introduce a new retail offering onboard the Carnival Venezia – the newest addition to its fleet – which begins cruising on 15 June.

The new retail selection includes a combination of luxury brands and original collections, many of which are first-time listings. It has been curated to complement the new ‘Fun Italian Style’ experiences across the ship, which celebrates all things Venetian.

The vessel accommodates more than 5,000 guests and will offer 10 different cruise durations, and 22 unique itineraries, featuring visits to 25 ports across 14 countries.

Luxury on-board boutiques

The Carnival Venezia boutiques will feature a number of high-end watch and jewellery brands, including Bulgari, Cartier and Tag Heuer.

Colourful prints from ICaftani – and hand-made Murano glass jewellery from Lionve – will also be available, alongside fragrances from Versace, Tom Ford, Love Moschino and Dolce & Gabbana, and sunglasses from Fendi and Gucci.

The Carnival Venezia boutiques will feature a range of well-known luxury brands and a selection of ‘Fun Italian Style’ collections.

A dedicated luxury leathergoods shop will feature handbags and accessories from Marc Jacobs and Emporio Armani. The Front Street Watches store will showcase timepieces from Bremont, Gucci, Longines, Michele and Philip Stein.

Passengers can purchase pre-loved designer leather handbags and accessories from the What Goes Around Comes Around shop.

The ship will also offer three ‘Fun Italian Style’ collections: Venezia Masquerade Accessories; Carnival Venezia Racing Stripes Collection; and Carnival Venezia Inaugural Collection.

“We are thrilled to bring the essence of Italy to life with fresh offerings under the newly unveiled ‘Carnival Fun Italian Style’ banner,” noted Starboard President and CEO Lisa Bauer. “The vibrant brand assortment aligns perfectly with the Carnival Venezia experience and reflects the fun atmosphere guests expect.”
