The company has the largest fleet in the group, with twenty two vessels currently in operation. Carnival was a pioneer in the concept of shorter and less expensive cruises. In 1996 their Ship Destiny with 101,000 gross tons became the largest passenger ship in the world at the time. In 2004, Carnival Corporation ordered for a development program for Carnival's new ships, which was called the Pinnacle Project, which calls for a 200,000-GT prototype, which would have been the world's largest cruise ship. As of 2009, the latest and largest ship in the Carnival fleet is the Dream Ship, a new 128,000 gross ton ship. The Dream entered service on 21 September 2009. After several voyages in the Mediterranean she is set to offer weekly Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral from 5 December 2009.
