Carnival call their vessels ‘fun ships’ and these floating resorts are packed with things to do, from relaxing in the spa areas to duty-free shopping. You could even strike it lucky at the Mega Cash Casino, with the world’s largest cruise ship jackpot at over $1 million!

The entertainment doesn’t end there. Settle down for the evening and be enthralled by stage show extravaganzas, and performances from up-and-coming comedians and singers – then head to one of the nightclubs or sip drinks on the deck.

Little ones can get their faces painted and enjoy arts and crafts or outdoor games, while there are talent shows for older kids. Teens aren’t left out either, with frequent movie nights and even their own Teen Shore Excursion Programme.

The Carnival Comfort Collection staterooms are beautiful havens where you can lay your head each night. Whether you opt for an Interior, Ocean View, Balcony, Suite, or Penthouse Suite, you’ll get 24-hour service, free toiletries and individual climate control.

At mealtimes, choose from international flavours including French, Italian and Asian nights in the elegant dining room. Those who are counting calories can rest at ease with the delicious low-fat, low-calorie Nautica Spa™ menu. For casual light bites there’s also the Lido Deck bistro, which has particularly spectacular desserts.

All ships operate 3 to 18 day voyages, meaning Carnival has an itinerary to suit you. When you get to each destination you’ll be offered informative talks on places of interest, as well as shopping opportunities and shore excursions to make the most of your time. Choose from romantic horseback rides in the Caribbean, exploring ancient cities in South America or sampling wines in Italy’s vineyards. Carnival know how to show you a good time.
