Arison Maritime Center CSMART, Carnival's Center for Simulator Maritime Training, uses SAMMON software from ISSIMS GmbH to develop and conduct its ship-handling courses at Almere, Netherlands. Here, ship officers from various Carnival-group brands such as AIDA Cruises, COSTA and Princess Cruises are trained in a high-quality course environment.
