Select an Interior Upper/Lower with a porthole for an affordable view of the ocean.
Balcony staterooms were designed for maximum sea breeze and the most stunning views. Any time you’re in your room, you’re just steps away from your own personal outdoor oasis, featuring the sort of sea view you can also feel.

Your Scenic Ocean View stateroom provides the best view of the sea that lies ahead of the ship, with views unlike any on land. And you’ll get more of them, too, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing plenty of looking-glass for gazing at the natural wonders of the sea.
As you step into a Junior Suite aboard, you can’t help but feel that you’re stepping into luxury. Featuring a standard-size balcony, you’ll find everything else there is to love about a suite, including Priority check-in and a private balcony for relaxing.
A Grand Suite features even more space than the standard suite. Add Priority check-in, a huge balcony, a whirlpool tub for relaxing and even a convenient dressing area with vanity and you can see just how extraordinarily comfy the entire experience can be.
An Ocean Suite is the ultimate way to cruise. With more space for stretching out indoors, plus a large balcony for kicking back outdoors, try an Ocean Suite to experience private, luxurious relaxation. Ocean Suites also include Priority check-in, walk-in closet and bathroom with whirlpool.
When you go for the largest, most luxurious room available, you get a room designed to suit your desire for comfort, inside and out.

And if that isn’t quite enough to satisfy your appetite, you can treat yourself to a multicourse VIP dinner at the Chef’s Table. It’s an eating experience you’ll never forget.
Carnival Cruises went looking for someone to help grill up the best burgers at sea. and they've found just the guy. Carnival has teamed up with best-selling author, restaurateur and Food Network personality Guy Fieri to bring all the appetising appeal of a roadside burger to Guy’s Burger Joint, the cool pool-side spot for hot burgers and hand-cut fries. Try a fresh-off-the-grill burger Guy’s way, or take it off-road to the toppings bar and truly make it your own.
Forget what “they” say — the most important meal of the day is brunch. Slumberers can sleep in and still enjoy breakfast favourites, while early-risers get a head-start on lunch. And Seaday Brunch brings everybody’s favourite mid-morning meal to your Carnival cruise, and does it right. You’ll enjoy overstuffed breakfast burritos, special French toast, loaded mac n’ cheese… and yes, more ways to cook eggs than you would even thought was possible. Chow down and fuel up — you’ve got lots of exploring to do, across the ship, for the rest of the day.
Nobody knows Mexican dining like a blue iguana. Well, Carnival's blue iguana, at least. That’s why it should come as no surprise that the all-new BlueIguana Cantina features freshly made tacos and burritos stuffed specially for your enjoyment. Throw some home-made tortillas or chips and salsa into the mix, and you have a casual dining experience that will make you say “mmmm” (pretty sure that’s Iguanese for “more please”).
Chances are, you’ve worked up an appetite after a day of onboard activities or exploring one of the beautiful destinations. Now it’s time to feast on amazing culinary delights in the dazzling main dining rooms. If you'd rather eat early (6:00 p.m.), choose the “Early Dining” option when booking your cruise. If your appetite doesn’t get going until later in the evening (8:15 p.m.), then then “Late Dining” option is perfect for you. Prefer to munch to the beat of your own drum? “Your Time Dining” is for you! Either way, your table will be waiting.
A voyage to new destinations is the perfect time to try new things… and here’s the perfect place: The Taste Bar.

Pick up a complimentary appetiser before dinner for a taste of something different.

Like any destination restaurant, reservations for the steakhouse are highly recommended.

The evening concludes with a mind-blowing full-service dinner of amazing appetisers, entrees and desserts not found on the regular dining menus. Reserve early because this once-in-a-lifetime experience has limited seating. It’s $75 per person and can be booked onboard through the ship’s guest information desk.
Treat yourself to a well-deserved break with a speciality coffee drink or freshly brewed tea and some delicious home-made pastries. Or, if it’s a sweet tooth you’re looking to satisfy, stop by for a milk shake, ice-cream sundae, slice of cake or cookies.
Featuring a nice variety of casual dining options like Mongolian Wok, Chef's Choice, Salad Bar, Carnival Deli and more, the Lido Restaurant has something — or more likely, at least a few somethings — to satisfy your craving. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and food options for everyone, you can enjoy your personal favourites while dining in the company of family and friends. It’s also where you can find pizza station and soft serve and frozen yogurt… both open 24 hours a day, which ought to be enough for anybody.

Feast! Feast! Feast! Lose yourself exploring a delicious menu where you’ll find “Green Eggs and Ham,” brightly colored fruit, gravity-defying pancake stacks, funky french toast, “Moose Juice” ‘n’ ”Goose Juice”… and much more. (Classic breakfast offerings are available as well.) Breakfast is also the perfect time to meet and greet the stars of Dr. Seuss — characters will be around for special photo opportunities and fun interactions, making this a meal to remember.
Tossing dough is an age-old art passed down the generations. Lucky for you, someone passed us the secret to the perfect pie. While aboard, this is the place that will shiver your timbers and warm you to the bone, 24 hours a day, with a Margherita, Funghi, Prosciutto, Pepperoni or Quatttro Formaggi pizza served with a delicious Caesar salad. Savvy? Then it’s the pirates’ life for you!
Looking for a little taste from the old neighborhood? Pile 'em high at the Carnival Deli. Enjoy old time favorites like a hot pastrami on rye, grilled Reuben, or roasted turkey breast on a country roll. The sandwiches and wraps are always hand-carved and served fresh with cole slaw or relish. Come by, satisfy your craving for a great sandwich and make sure you don’t forget the kosher dill.
So you're in the mood for some good eats, but you’d rather stay in your comfy, cozy stateroom? Really, who could blame you? Simply pick up the phone and order something from the tasty room service menu. And since you get hungry when you get hungry, room service is available any time of the day (or night) and delivered right to your door.
Got room for dessert? Sure you do! Swirls ice cream lets you enjoy the sweeter side of brain freeze with a treat that’ll have you smiling from ear to ear. Choose from chocolate, vanilla or strawberry… or make your own mix swirled as high as you can balance it. Open on Lido deck 24/7, the frozen yogurt and soft-serve ice cream is a great way to beat the heat all day, or the perfect nightcap after a long evening of fun.
If the smell of breakfast cooking doesn’t help open your eyes, the fresh coffee will surely do the trick. Drag yourself out of bed and over to the Lido Restaurant where you’ll enjoy made-to-order omelettes, help yourself to fluffy stacks of pancakes or indulge in some sizzling sausage or bacon for a delicious and energising way to start the day.
Roll it, wrap it, stuff it — however you like it, you'll love these made-to-order burritos. Customise each one with your choice of freshly grilled chicken, beef or shrimp. Since no burrito is complete without salsa and sour cream, you can pile it on as thick as you’d like. For that extra kick, make yours as hot or as mild as your taste buds can handle — whatever makes you smile (or wince, as it may be). So make sure you take a guac over to Burrito Bar for your 'fresh-mex' fix.
If you fancy fish, have they got the casual spot for you. At Fish n' Chips you can enjoy a delightful variety of hot and cold seafood favourites like cajun-barbecued octopus salad, ceviche, crisp fried oysters or cider-batter fried fish fillets served with hot, fresh chips. Since eating fish without a tangy dipping sauce is practically against maritime regulations, choose from tangy tartar, sweet chilli, English mustard and more.
When it comes to eating well for dinner, the name says it all. Good Eats is just the spot to enjoy a casual self-serve dinner aboard. Enjoy New York strip steak, broiled pork chops served with white rice or roasted potato, a carving station and so much more. There's something different on the menu every night, so you can come back and try something new. It's always a good time when you spend dinner time at Good Eats.
“Hey, which side does the fork go on?” is a question you’ll never have to ask at a dining room dinner aboard a Carnival cruise… they set the table for you. They also bring to the table a full three courses in an experience that’s filling, but never stuffy — after all, you’re just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order dessert. Dessert’s included (along with the rest of your meal, by the way) in your fare. But don’t skip straight to dessert, because the main course is the main attraction — drop in daily and enjoy a rotating menu of delectable favourites like steak, roasted duck, scallops and prime rib.
Here's your chance to dip a toe into onboard entertainment, activities, bars and more… so that when you cruise, you're ready to dive headfirst into the fun.
There’s chuckle-funny, then there’s laughing-so-hard-you-can-barely-breathe funny. To take their Punchliner Comedy Club talent way over the top, Carnival have teamed up with renowned comedian and TV personality George Lopez. George is Carnival's ‘curator of comedy,’ their ‘finder of funny,’ the… ‘locator of laugh-out-loud’, helping select talent for the fleetwide Punchliner Comedy Clubs.
Their stage shows are designed to razzle and dazzle. Featuring talented singers, musicians and dancers performing crowd-thrilling numbers in extravagant costumes with awesome sets and scenery, it's like catching one of the best shows on land. All performances are created to ensure that every night feels like opening night. And best of all, since shows are included in your fare, it's like having top-dollar tickets to the hottest show in town, absolutely fre
Nobody can get the party started like a great DJ, right? That’s why Carnival have brought DJ IRIE into the mix (pun intended) to make the nightlife onboard a Carnival cruise hotter than ever. He’ll be heading up “DJ IRIE’s Spin’iversity,” a program designed to train budding DJs to keep their spinning skills sharp and their personalities party-ready. Oh, and as for music, graduates will be spinning expanded musical catalogues in clubs across the fleet for maximum guest body-rocking.
A cruise is the perfect time to treat yourself to something sweet, and Cherry On Top happens to be the perfect place. You’ll find this well-stocked candy-and-more-store not only great for enjoying some of your confectionary favourites, but the place to pick up branded Cherry On Top gear and gifts for that special someone, even if — admit it — that someone sometimes happens to be you!
Want to rock ’n’ roll every night and every day? Well, you’ve come to the right ship. Carnival bring some of the best performers on land out to sea for an ambience that can’t be beaten. From happy-go-lucky island rock at RedFrog Pub to sing-alongs at the piano bar to let’s-get-this-party-started jams on Lido deck, chances are you’ll find a live performance on board that gets your hands clapping and toes tapping.
Grab the mic and channel your inner rock king, pop princess or disco queen, when you join in the karaoke fun aboard a Carnival cruise. Choose from traditional karaoke or the SuperStar Live Karaoke, where you don’t just pick the song you want to sing — you perform it backed by a live band playing guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and, yes, even your own back-up singers! Whichever karaoke experience you choose, choose from hundreds of titles that span a wide variety of genres, from Motown, country and rock classics to today’s pop hits.
The atrium is not only where you’ll find the grand staircase and wonder at the scenic high ceiling — it’s also the heart of any Carnival ship. Day or night, you can get your questions answered at guest services, plan some fun at the shore excursion desk, enjoy music that helps set the atmosphere… and even see what’s good at the full bar and happening on the dance floor.
If you love to play video games, you’re in luck. Carnival's video arcade boasts a huge array of games, and is open to players of all ages, all night and all day. So get some tokens from the vending machine and let the fun times begin. Challenge your friends to a game, or just see if you can beat the top score. After all, with the video arcade open 24 hours and an entire cruise ahead of you, you have plenty of time to try.
Night time isn’t the only time you’ll find stars on your cruise. Day or night, find a spot on deck and check out Carnival’s Seaside Theatre’s huge outdoor screen. Hit movies, sporting events and even cartoons for the kiddies are just some of the features you’ll find at the outdoor movie theatre. Check the Fun Times to see what’s playing during your cruise. Then get some popcorn, a friend or three and get ready to kick back and enjoy the entertainment!
Ready to see stars? Park yourself in front of the really big screen and settle in for a night at the cinema, under some real stars. From the comfort of your pool-side lounge chair, or even the pool itself, you’ll enjoy a big-name movie from categories like Date Night, Best Picture and Super Hero. And don’t think that being in the middle of the sea means going without the usual comforts. There’s not only popcorn but blankets too. So lounge around, snuggle up and try to remember the last time you truly enjoyed a night at the movies.
You’ll find the perfect gifts for friends, family or yourself at the onboard gift shops, stocked with so much good stuff you’ll want to shop ’til you drop (into a deck chair, of course). With everything from T-shirts to high-end timepieces, lockets to your favourite spirits (available duty-free), you’re bound to find something special for that special someone (even if that special someone is you). There are even sales on everything from portraits to spa products, so be sure to check out your daily onboard itinerary to see what’s going on during your cruise.
Experience the bold, psychedelic artwork of Peter Max. Or the vibrant energy of Romero Britto. You’ll have the chance to make one yours as you bid on your picks of hundreds of works. They’re all from the world's most popular contemporary artists, and all on your next Carnival cruise. Sip complimentary champagne, as you learn terms like intaglio. Expand your mind, as you encounter the fourth dimension through kinetic art. And of course, feel like a champion as the auctioneer declares you the winning bidder. Carnival auctions also feature sports memorabilia from your favourite champions. Plus, you're guaranteed to start or expand your art collection, just by attending the action — everyone receives a free work of art! Whether you’re new to the art world or a seasoned pro, you can take home something spectacular.
Carnival are pleased to introduce the RedFrog Rum Bar, where the frog keeps the fun hopping day and night with all that island flava you know and love. Join the party at this pool-side bar featuring a great selection of “frog approved” Caribbean rum-based concoctions available by the glass or pitcher and plenty of Carnival’s signature private-label draft beer, ThirstyFrog Red.
BlueIguana Tequila Bar is the onboard spot to chill and enjoy a slushy tequila drink or an ice-cold Mexican cerveza. The menu offers up Mexican favorites, including several brands of tequila and a slew of Mexican brews. There’s a line up of frozen concoctions, cocktails and margaritas served by the glass or pitcher and even a special Mexican beer cocktail (yes, really). Where can you find this little slice of Mexican paradise? Next to the pool, of course. So stay cool and take in the bar’s vacation vibe while you kick back on your cruise – that’s what the official bar mascot Blue the Iguana would tell you.
If you’re into sports, get yourself into the first-ever EA SPORTS Bar, the perfect place to catch a game and play a few, too. Grab a drink, order some snacks, watch your favourite games live on big flat-screen TVs, and keep up with real-time scores from across the sports world. And if you’re got that competitive spirit, you can really get right into the game with the latest video game titles from EA SPORTS. It’s free to play, so find a friend or three and get ready for action.
Play it again, Sam. Or Diana. Or whatever your name is. Because this is the bar where you call the shots – and the songs. Pull up a seat, order your favourite cocktail, and let your friendly piano player know the songs you'd like to hear. Then join the sing-along for a hand-clapping, foot-tapping, finger-snapping good time. Don't feel like flexing your vocal cords? No worries. Shy songbirds are welcome here, too. And since it's open from early evening to late at night, it's the perfect spot for a before-dinner drink or singing until the early hours of the morning.
Get up and get down at the most happenin’ club in the Caribbean. The Carnival DJs are spinning today’s hottest hits and yesterday’s golden oldies, guaranteed to get you out of your seat and tapping your feet. Whether you’re doing the robot or the worm or just swaying to the music, you’ll want to dance until the sun rises. Or at least until last call. Carnival's themed parties are pretty fun as well.
Try to keep your excitement under control — at least for the time being — because you're gonna need a steady hand and a little luck to win at the casino prize games. There are cash prizes and awesome electronics at stake, so when you win, you win big. At that point, feel free to go a little crazy, jump up and down if that's your thing… because you and your steady hand are winners!
Or why not try your hand at Roulette, Blackjack, Slot Machines, Poker or some of the Casino Tournaments!
Open 24 hours, the Internet café features private terminals where you have the ability to surf the Web, chat online and access your private Emil account. You'll also find FunHub terminals located throughout select ships, for when you just need to connect real quick. And if you’ve brought your laptop or other Wi-Fi enabled equipment onboard, feel free to log on with your personal device.
Looking for the perfect place to curl up for some quiet time? Look no further than the library. Sink into a cosy chair and let the hours drift by in this quiet onboard haven. It’s the perfect place to catch up on your reading, do a crossword, write a postcard to those back home, or stimulate your brain with a game of chess, checkers or Scrabble. If you forgot to bring a book, peruse the shelves for a title that interests you, or leave behind your just-finished paperback for another cruiser to enjoy.
Bingo buzz fills the air. You’ve got three cards in front of you, and you’re ready to play. What will tonight’s big game be? Postage stamp? Big X? Big T? Get ready to play some crazy-exciting, hoot-and-holler-if-you-win-big bingo. Cash prizes start at $100, and a jackpot game might add another zero to the pot. Other prizes include tour passes, gifts from onboard shops, spa services and more. So grab some bingo cards. That next B-6 could be the lucky call that lands you a whopping $2,000 jackpot or even a free cruise.
Kids never need an excuse to play, did you know that cognitive scientists — fully-grown adults without bedtimes — believe that play is essential to childhood development? At Carnival, we believe play is important to ALL ages, so onboard games are a huge part of the Carnival experience for all, young and old! From physical challenges to scavenger hunts to the very appropriate Battle of the Ages — the trivia game that actually pits kids against adults — Carnival puts the “all” in “fun for all.” (Not to mention the “fun.”)
The word trivia comes from “trivial,” which basically means ‘stuff that’s not important to know.’ Wait… unimportant?! Not if you’re planning on walking away with an unlimited supply of bragging rights… good for the rest of your cruise, not to mention when you get home. Don’t just show what you know — flaunt it. Here, being a “know-it-all” pays off.
You don’t need to be a mix-master to appreciate Alchemy – you just have to be up for trying something new. They’ve been stirring up some magic behind the scenes here at Carnival to produce a tasty series of all-new cocktails served at this unique vintage-themed cocktail “pharmacy.” Let their cocktail specialists prescribe you something from the bar, with both nonalcoholic and alcoholic elixirs to remedy what ails you. Or, create your own custom concoction from a variety of unique ingredients.
From the wine novice to the wine enthusiast, you’ll find the perfect vintage of red, white, rosé or blends at the wine bar. Order by the glass, or buy the bottle and unwind in this friendly setting. While vino is the specialty here, it’s also a full bar serving up a wonderful array of spirits, mixers, and delicious cocktails.
Winning big in the casino is big fun, and your next stop is celebrating with a top-shelf drink. Located right off the casino floor, the casino bar serves up your favourite cocktails, beer and wine, making this the perfect spot to celebrate with family, friends… and maybe even total strangers.
Carnival onboard Health & Fitness facilities include sports events, a gym, as well as a spa and beauty salon.
When it comes to relaxation from the inside out, nothing beats a trip to the spa. From the minute you step inside, the soothing ambience begins to work its magic. Renew yourself with premium beauty and wellness therapies, like hot stone massages, aromatherapy or full-body wraps. This is your time to be spoiled, indulged and beautified. Lay back, close your eyes, and feel the stress sail away as your body and mind experience total tranquility.
Who said you can’t run on water? Lace up your trainers and hit the deck for a run alongside the ocean at any time of day or night. Whether you feel like an early morning jog or a midnight run under the stars, the jogging track is always open and available for anyone looking to get their heart rate up over the great blue sea. If jogging isn’t your thing, consider this a top-notch place for a late-night stroll and some stargazing.
Carnival's yoga and Pilates classes will have you finding inner peace before you know it. With classes ranging from meditative stretching to more intensive, advanced levels, you’ll be sure to find the class that’s perfect for you. Check out your daily Fun Times to see which classes are being offered, then head on over to the Fitness Centre to participate.
Stay fit on your vacation with the help of Spa Carnival’s fully equipped fitness centre. Go for a jog, lift some weights, or use the state-of-the-art equipment to work up a sweat and get stronger. If it’s heart-pumping cardio classes you’re after, try indoor cycling, aerobics or cardio circuit training. If you’re in more of a chill-out mood, try yoga or Pilates. Some of the classes have a small fee, but the fitness centre is always free and open all day.
After you’ve met with the experienced staff, you’ll be seeing your best self ever. Carnival's European-style salon is staffed with trained professionals who specialise in pampering you and bringing out all your best features. Whether it’s a glamorous up do for evening or just a great cut, new colour or deep conditioning for your hair and scalp, the staff are there to make it happen. Don’t forget to give your hands and feet some attention with a luxurious manicure and pedicure. You’ll be feeling brand-new in no time.
Have a swinging good time at the onboard mini-golf course. The greens are meticulously maintained and the view is pretty spectacular. Just remember your follow-through and no bogeys allowed. Best of all? No collared shirt is required! Oh, and playing is complimentary — just ask a staff member where to get clubs.
If you love action, the Carnival fleet is ideally suited, as the ships are packed with fun and games to keep that competitive spirit charged up all cruise long. Challenge a fellow cruiser to a round the mini-golf course, shoot some hoops on the basketball courts, or while away the hours with a little ping-pong. There’s even a ship-top jogging track featuring some of the best views from the ship.
Hey man, been to the spa lately? Well, why let the ladies have all the fun? You can actually enjoy a lot of the same stuff they do, plus manly services like razor-close barbershop-style shaves — pair one with a facial to really get a good thing going up top. Speaking of the barber, a cruise is a great time to rock a whole new hairstyle, a quick grey-hair darkening, or even just a fresh trim. And what guy wouldn’t go for a little extra relaxation with a massage? Exactly, bro.
Has anyone told you lately that you’re a beautiful person? We’re telling you — we like you the way you are. Now, with that said, we want to let you know that your Carnival cruise contains a Medi-spa. We’re certainly not saying that you need them, but if you’ve been thinking about Botox or Dysport treatments, this spa is a good place to do them. Get them on vacation and they’ll always be administered by our onboard Medi-spa physician, a licensed medical doctor. These are non-surgical, anti-wrinkle procedures that show results in days, and last for months, so you can keep enjoying the benefits even after you’re back home.
Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it's pretty much exactly the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. Look, you'll still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement… but you could easily forget, because when you’re at Serenity you could not be further from it all. The world you'll find yourself in is one of complete peace, sea breezes, swaying hammocks and, of course, a nearby bar. It's the place to get done the kind of stuff you just can't seem to do anywhere else — reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.
POOL DAY! Whether today's the day for a bit of a dip, a dash of splash or even some swimming — or just a serious poolside lounging session — your Carnival cruise has the just pool for you. In fact, pools are so important to a great cruise that we designed many of our ships to have two of them. At an aft pool you'll catch a breeze, plus a sea view featuring the ship's wake, while midship pools have an grand view of a different kind: the big screen's right there for the viewing. And no matter which you find yourself chilling in, the sunbeams are yours for the soaking.
Above the ship you'll find the shining sun, but that's not all — basking in its rays is a gleaming symbol of fun, a monument to merriment... a sign of splashy-good times to come. Spot the spiralling Twister Waterslide atop your Carnival ship and you can be sure that your vacation comes complete with twists, turns and squeals of thrilled delight. Countless gallons of water course through the entire length of this slide, so you're by no means dry when you start, but by the time you reach the end — hundreds of feet later — you reach new levels of soaking, splashing down in that classic waterslide photo-finish: hands-up, eyes wide and nothing but exhilaration on your face.
Carnival onboard enrichment facilities include an Art Gallery and dance classes.
When you’re on a Carnival cruise, there are plenty of places to bust out your moves when the mood strikes: in the dance club, at a deck party, in line for tandoori. Some people are born with all the right moves, but the rest of us need a little instruction to smooth the sharp edges off. That’s why you’ll find a host of free dance classes that sail along with you, helping you make the most of your cruise… which is perfect because a cruise is just the kind of vacation that puts you in the dancing mood!
Learn to cook, Steakhouse-style from the team of chefs as they demonstrate the tricks of the trade used to make those multi-course dinners everyone loves so much. Carnival take the joy of cooking and transform it into a delightful hour-long presentation of kitchen skill and ingenuity… where taste tests are always included.
Tip: This fun-for-the-whole-family event fills up fast, so get there early.
Are you known back home as the cocktail captain; raising spirits, mixing it up and pouring it over ice… pleasing the palates of friends and family, alike? Come cruise and show them what you’ve got.

Every Carnival ship caters for children of all ages and that includes Camp Carnival Night Owls, so you can enjoy an evening together without the kids.
At Camp Ocean, 2–11 year-olds stay busy, keep active and have fun as they enjoy all new ocean-themed activities. Carnival put campers into supervised, age-based groups, and give each a cool marine-life label that’s sure to raise the sails on camaraderie at sea. The smallest little ones — ages 2 to 5 — join the Penguin colony and engage in activities like Musical Icebergs and Ocean Bingo… even learning a thing or two about buoyancy!. Those aged 6 to 8, are the Stingrays, who might be found enjoying Pirate Game Night, making sea salt art or even designing their own aquarium. The big fish are the Sharks — ages 9 to 11 — who really sink their teeth into playing Marine Life Trivia, creating a giant ocean mural, and scoring big with sea-themed volleyball or football.
Camp Carnival offers tons of activities designed for children in three different age groups: 2 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years, and 9 to 11 years. The counsellors, each with education or childcare experience, are on the clock making sure everyone in the small groups of kids are having fun. When it’s mealtime, kids get their own menus, with favourites like mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, and more.
For a nominal fee, kids 11 and under can have fun all night, with others their age until as late as 1 a.m, with the Night Owls scheme. They’ll enjoy music, activities, games and giveaways at supervised parties while you dance the night away.
What does the “C” in Circle “C” stand for? Well, “chill,” “connect” and “cool,” just to name a few. It’s where young teens ages 12 to 14 go to hang out, meet new friends, and enjoy some pretty awesome activities like dance parties, games, outdoor movies and more, in the special Circle “C” area or around the ship. It’s all supervised by friendly and fun-loving counsellors who want your young teens to have the best vacation ever.
Your parents deserve a nice vacation… but then again, so do you. So let’s let them go do their thing while you do yours. Where to? Club O2. Hang out and do stuff like watch movies, listen to music from this decade, play sports and video games, join karaoke jam sessions… maybe even have a pool party or two, all with other high schoolers ages of 15 to 17
Everybody’s got their game — the one they’re just made to play — and teens are no exception. On a Carnival cruise, teens can show ‘em how it’s done back home in a wide variety of sports games and activities. Whether it’s big-fun classics like basketball and dodgeball, precision pastimes like foosball and ping-pong or get-up-and-move active video gaming, we’ve got as many ways to win as there are to play.
Teens know that gaming isn’t the antisocial activity it’s sometimes thought to be. Gaming is about cooperation and competition, not to mention the perfect way to sharpen and showcase skills like problem-solving and goal-oriented thinking. And — duh — having fun with others, which we do all the time at Circle "C" and Club O2. Have a seat, grab a controller and journey your way through vivid electronic worlds, whether you’re flying solo… or with a new friend as your ‘Player 2.’
To you a cruise may be just the time for chilling, but “relaxing vacation” certainly isn’t on a kid’s bucket list! Slow-time for you is go-time for them, and we’re glad to accommodate the little adrenaline junkies with a range of activities that get them up and, of course, having an absolute blast. Age-appropriate stuff like treasure hunts, obstacle courses, sports competitions and playground outings at sea are all a step up from similar stuff back on land… both because we’re talking Carnival here, and because uptime for them means well-deserved downtime for you.
Parents can be concerned — and rightly so — about the time kids spend in front of a screen. But this time isn’t wasted — it’s just one of the ways that they learn about the world around them. Movies entertain by giving viewers a “slice of life,” fostering empathy as they show how people live. And video games have a host of benefits, from simple hand-eye coordination to promoting problem-solving skills and goal-oriented thinking, to of course the yin and yang of cooperative and competitive play, which helps youngsters learn to relate to one another. These activities aren’t all the kids will be doing — screen time accounts for just part of a balanced play-time that’s always age-appropriate, and definitely about more than just the high score.
There’s a lot to being a teen — they need to kick back, chill and sometimes even indulge just as much as adults… if not more! Carnival understand them, which is why they’ve tailored their onboard ZSPA treatments to their unique needs. ZSPA keeps teens looking their best from head to toe, with everything from trendy hairstyles to pedicures. Okay, so it’s not all about looking good — it’s about feeling great too. We make that happen, whether they want to do more for themselves with specialised fitness classes, or perhaps do a little less with relaxation and indulgence programs worth ‘ooh’ing and ‘ahh’ing about. So whether it’ll be your teen’s first time, or they’re already a seasoned spa pro, they speak their language at ZSPA.
To kids, arts and crafts is a fun way to spend an afternoon. To a parent, on the other hand, it’s something much more. From their earliest fingerpaintings onto macaroni art and beyond, the stuff they bring home is more than just stuff — it’s art — and every last scrap of it is nothing short of precious, the work of a master. Your Carnival cruise presents plenty of opportunities for your budding Picassos to express themselves, from refrigerator hangables to less traditional media like sand art, hand-decorated t-shirts, pirate treasures and beyond. You know, future living-room-museum pieces.
Most kids have a favourite teddy bear, that one stuffed buddy they remember with the fondest of cuddly memories. They don’t usually have a concrete reason for choosing a fave — it just kind of happens, but their devotion to that lucky bear is unshakable. Their favorite bear yet may very well be the friend they don’t just design, but bring to life at Beary Cuddly Workshop aboard their Carnival cruise! It doesn’t matter if the new addition gets lovingly dragged all over town or simply enjoys a quiet life on the shelf — by creating a bear on your cruise, Carnival and your kids are teaming up to support the kids of St. Jude!
Toss it, stretch it, sauce it, cheese it — kids take control during this fun-filled pizza-making experience. Spread some sauce, pile the cheese on high, throw on some toppings… then they get ready to munch on their work of art. Since this is a kids-and-teens-only event, they decide which toppings go on and which stay off — sorry parents, for once, you don’t get a vote.
From the whimsical and always wonderful world of Dr. Seuss comes Cats in Hats, Fish Red and Blue, and both kinds of Things — 1 and 2. And they’re all coming to a Carnival cruise near you as the world of Dr. Seuss leaps off the page and onto Seuss at Sea.
Dr. Seuss’s timeless stories are the kind kids memorise, and this is the kind of cruise you’ll remember for a lifetime. The whole family will still enjoy all the classic Carnival activities, but the littlest ones, and their families, will also enjoy an all-new, extra-special experience as the fantastical world of Dr. Seuss comes to life around them.
Enjoy a special onboard character parade, interactive story time, arts & crafts activities, character breakfast featuring their favourite Dr. Seuss friends and more. Seuss at Sea truly brings your child’s favourite books to life.
