Carnival Cruise Lines

Carnival has 24 ships operating 3 to 18 day voyages to The Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New England, Europe, Bermuda, South America, Panama Canal, and Tahiti and Fiji Islands. 

They offer a wide array of quality cruises, and pride themselves on delivering memorable Holidays to their guests. A Carnival cruise offers not only outstanding value for the money, but most importantly, fun! A "Fun Ship" cruise features day and nighttime entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, casinos and more. They make guests feel right at home, too — think comfy stateroom accommodations, attentive service, delicious food and drink — and they enjoy the experience against the backdrop of some of the world's most beautiful ports.

More about Carnival Cruise Lines

Seuss at Sea
Carnival’s exclusive partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises brings the beloved children’s brand and favourite characters to the line’s 24-ship fleet. The Seuss at Sea program offers a variety of exciting and immersive on-board youth, family, dining and entertainment experiences featuring the amazing world and words of Dr. Seuss.

Carnival LIVE

Carnival LIVE not only takes you to great destinations, but makes getting there half the fun. Cruise to the usual stunning spots, and while in one port the band will board the ship and put on an amazing show. And for the entire cruise, you’re in good company — you’re sailing with a shipful of your fellow fans.

IMAX

To compare the IMAX experience to “just seeing a movie” is like calling a Carnival cruise “just a vacation.” It sounds about right… but experienced folks know better. That’s why stepping into the IMAX Theatre you’ll find on a Carnival cruise is more like taking a brief escape from life. On the other side of the amazing screen you’ll find a world of first­-run Hollywood blockbusters, recent hit films and IMAX shorts, all in a huge format that makes normal cinemas look like your smartphone screen. And the very first IMAX Theatre at sea? Nowhere else but Carnival Vista.

SkyRide

SkyRide is a bit like riding a bike — you’ll never forget it. But SkyRide is also completely unlike riding a bike, because when was the last time you biked around a ship, high above the deck and even higher above the sparkling blue sea? Zip safely around a two-lane suspended course in a pedal-powered go-mobile, in search of your biggest racing victory, lowest lap time… or simply the greatest view.

Reasons to Book

Imagine a week without a single "I'm bored"

Make lasting memories with the whole crew, or even just the two of you. Supervised youth programs mean the kids may have even more fun than you! Enjoy relaxation at the spa or Serenity, their adult-only area. Later, you can pick up the kids for an evening of live entertainment… music, comedy and more. Or maybe make a date out of it — they'll watch the little ones late into the night.

Make their destinations your destinations
'Where to' is up to you. Carnival sails to hundreds of destinations — and most cruises visit at least a few — for maximum new experiences, with minimal packing and unpacking. Choose a Carnival cruise and steer the family toward fun hotspots, intriguing history and stunning displays of natural beauty.

Your to-do list never looked this good

Press pause on your daily routine, and go play — here’s the perfect time to indulge in things you already love, and new favourites you're about to. Whether you're laughing out loud at The Punchliner Comedy Club Presented by George Lopez, working out at the fitness centre, busting out at the dance club or chilling out at the spa, you’ll discover onboard activities practically made for your indulgence.

Dining your can't help but savour

If taste buds can make memories, yours will savour your Carnival cruise for years. Step aboard and enjoy everything from eat-it-anytime casual fare to dress-up-to-chow-down multi-course steakhouse meals. Anywhere you look you'll find a great variety of food, made from fresh ingredients by chefs who specialize in delighting your palate. (Pro tip: Looking for lobster? Look to the main dining room… where it's free.)
