It’s hard to tell which onboard space best represents Carnival Splendor — they all seem to hint at the amazing time you’re going to have. El Morocco Lounge hosts comedy shows, musical performances, karaoke and more… and wears its 1930s namesake clearly on its nameplate. The words “Royal Flush Casino” incite visions of winning, while our onboard jazz club — The Cool — simply says it all without saying a word. And the Pinnacle Steakhouse can be found not only at the height of elegant dining, but at the actual apex of the ship. If you like your fun to flow, there are options aplenty. If you list “splishing” and “splashing” among your favorite things to do, there’s the Splash Park. Those into sitting and sliding are invited to try the signature Carnival Twister Waterslide. How about floating or swimming around? Carnival Splendor has pools all over the place, including the midship pool featuring a retractable roof that makes any day a pool day. So whether you splish or splash, you’ll find hydro-excitement galore. If getting up and making the crowd go wild with your dance moves is your idea of a good time, Lip Sync Battle: Carnival is our idea of a great idea. Or if relaxation is more your thing, Serenity Adult-Only Retreat is more your place. Or if you’re looking to take relaxation to the extreme, direct your attention to the Cloud 9 Spa, featuring more (and better) ways to kick back than just about anywhere else, on land or at sea. You haven’t lived until you’ve relaxed in a Thalassotherapy pool, or chilled — so to speak — in a dry heat chamber. Read more

A new bar was added, as well as two new eateries, a library, a movie room, enrichment facilities and 34 new cabins. Inside Oosterdam The interior décor on board Oosterdam is there to be admired. The designers have chosen bold, bright colours such as red, orange and gold, creating a feeling of luxury and decadence. The public areas are light and spacious, but thanks to the attentive service, the atmosphere on board is warm and intimate. Oosterdam specs The ship is 936 feet long and has 11 passenger decks. Her maximum capacity is 1,918 passengers, and maximum cruise speed is 24 knots. She set out for her maiden voyage from Rotterdam in 2003. Oosterdam restaurants and bars Master Chef Rudi Sodamin ensures the food on Oosterdam is delicious, innovative and fresh. A little spice here, a little sweetness there, the menus across the ship’s four restaurants will delight your taste buds. Between the ship’s main dining room, the buffet and the specialty dining spaces, you will find all of your favourite classic dishes on board, as well as an impressive range of vegetarian options. You may choose to dine at specific seating times (5.45pm and 8pm in the Vista Dining Room), or make the most of ‘As You Wish’, Oosterdam’s flexible food service arrangement. The Oosterdam bars are all warm and welcoming, especially the three-deck Vista lounge, with its plush red and gold interiors. Alternatively, the Piano Bar always draws a good crowd, thanks to the exceptional pianists, while the Northern Lights Disco is perfect for letting loose on the dance floor. Things to do: Activities and entertainment on board Oosterdam After a holiday on board the Oosterdam cruise ship you could come home a culinary genius, thanks to ship’s Culinary Arts Centre. In partnership with Food & Wine Magazine, this Centre offers a range of culinary classes, from cake decorating to garnishing.  If cooking isn’t your thing, then you might want to focus on your computer skills instead. Microsoft offers a Digital Workshop, the perfect chance to learn some tips and tricks from technology experts. There are seminars on photo editing, blogging and everything in between. In addition to these two flagship enrichment programmes, guests can also entertain themselves with art auctions, language classes, sporting pursuits, trivia games and more. Oosterdam itineraries and shore excursions The Oosterdam’s schedule takes her all around the world; you could find her anywhere from Alaska to the Panama Canal. The excursions are therefore different in each location. One thing they do all have in common is their wonderful variety; no matter where the destination, the excursions have been carefully selected to suit a range of ages and interests. Example shore excursions include whale watching in Vancouver, ziplining in the Caribbean and shopping in Seville. Cabins on board the Oosterdam cruise ship Whether you go for stateroom or suite, the Oosterdam rooms are all clean and comfortable and feature basic amenities such as televisions, DVD players, programmable safes, minibars and hair dryers. You will also be guaranteed a good night’s sleep in a ‘Euro-top’ bed. The Oosterdam’s interior cabins, of which there are 154, are a great affordable option, including all the features mentioned above, and generously measuring between 170 and 200 square feet. The 165 outside cabins are of a similar size (185 feet). Space is the main reason to choose a suite, as these range from 398 to 700 square feet (or 1000 square feet if you go for the Penthouse). It is important to note the suites do not come with butler service, however guests will have access to the exclusive Neptune Lounge. Read more

Inside Celebrity Solstice Taking inspiration from the sun, the Celebrity Solstice manages to feel like summer all year round, especially at the Lawn Club. Here you will find a half-acre of living grass, the perfect place to relax on a warm sunny day. The sun theme continues throughout the ship. Keep an eye out for sun symbols as you explore its many rooms and decks – even the Casino has its own homage to our favourite star. Meanwhile the cabins complement this theme perfectly, with warm browns, tans, reds and golds creating stylish, welcoming interiors.

Carnival Cruises International

Carnival Fantasy has delighted countless passengers since she launched. It’s no surprise since she was the original Fantasy class ship, a series that truly showed the world how fun is done. The Carnival Fantasy is today fitted with all the modern conveniences, and once aboard, you’ll not only see it, but you’ll hear it for yourself. Listen for the “ahh” of relaxation at Serenity Adult-Only Retreat, the “ahhhhh” of extreme relaxation at Spa Carnival…and don’t miss the “aaaaaaaaah!!” of thrills at Carnival WaterWorks, our onboard water park featuring Twister Waterslide and Splash Park! Speaking of modern conveniences, Carnival Fantasy has some of our latest food and drink spots, located right where you want them: alfresco. Guy’s Burger Joint serves up signature burgers designed by, you know, that Guy Fieri guy… while BlueIguana Cantina is there to help you kick those no-taco blues. RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar may be rivals, but a little friendly competition goes a long way towards quenching your thirst for fun. It doesn’t end there either. When was the last time you spent an evening at a piano bar themed like ancient Egypt? Yeah, that’s exactly what we thought… and we know exactly where you can find one. You’ll find all this — and more — when you join the long list of delighted folks who've enjoyed a vacation on Carnival Fantasy. Read more

Cruising aboard Carnival Conquest elevates fun at sea to an art form — the ship demonstrates a true mastery of the craft with an onboard collage of fun spots for you to enjoy, like Guy's Burger Joint, RedFrog Rum Bar and SkyBox Sports Bar. There’s fun everywhere you look, from the dance club (great for people-watching) to the show lounges (great for show-watching). Alchemy Bar serves up not only one-of-a-kind drinks, but a complete experience for your senses. There's even The Punchliner Comedy Club, which gives stand-up comedians a microphone and a place to share their craft for your enjoyment. Speaking of microphones, at Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, we’ll give you one to hold… all you’ve got to do is act like you’re singing into it. Bring your stage moves, future star! And let’s not forget Seuss at Sea, which turns classic Dr. Seuss stories and characters into big fun for all. Read more

It’s hard to tell which onboard space best represents Carnival Splendor — they all seem to hint at the amazing time you’re going to have. El Morocco Lounge hosts comedy shows, musical performances, karaoke and more… and wears its 1930s namesake clearly on its nameplate. The words “Royal Flush Casino” incite visions of winning, while our onboard jazz club — The Cool — simply says it all without saying a word. And the Pinnacle Steakhouse can be found not only at the height of elegant dining but at the actual apex of the ship. If you like your fun to flow, there are options aplenty. If you list “splishing” and “splashing” among your favourite things to do, there’s the Splash Park. Those into sitting and sliding are invited to try the signature Carnival Twister Waterslide. How about floating or swimming around? Carnival Splendor has pools all over the place, including the midship pool featuring a retractable roof that makes any day a pool day. So whether you splish or splash, you’ll find hydro-excitement galore. If getting up and making the crowd go wild with your dance moves is your idea of a good time, Lip Sync Battle: Carnival is our idea of a great idea. Or if relaxation is more your thing, Serenity Adult-Only Retreat is more your place. Or if you’re looking to take relaxation to the extreme, direct your attention to the Cloud 9 Spa, featuring more (and better) ways to kick back than just about anywhere else, on land or at sea. You haven’t lived until you’ve relaxed in a Thalassotherapy pool, or chilled — so to speak — in a dry heat chamber. Read more

Carnival Ecstasy has the experience under her belt to ensure that you have an amazing cruise. (And at over 850 feet long, that would be some belt!) That’s not all she has, either. For starters, the bright lights of the grand atrium will remind you of the big city… and that you’re not on just any ship. You’re on a ship that features great fun for the kids with our range of supervised youth activities for cruisers 2–17… including Seuss at Sea. You’re on a ship with plenty for the adults to do — sit back and chill at the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat and our rather relaxing spa, or sip back something chilled at RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar. For a different sort of cocktail, check out the menu at Alchemy Bar… or maybe just ask the friendly mix-master in the white coat what they’d prescribe. But let’s not forget that, most of all, you’re on a ship that everyone can enjoy! There’s Carnival WaterWorks for those who’ve just gotta make a splash, Punchliner Comedy Club for the not-so-easily-amused, Playlist Productions for anyone who appreciates a good song-and-dance revue, and Hasbro, The Game Show for those who take their fierce competition with a soft side of fun. Speaking of fun and competition, there’s Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, so bring your moves and hit the stage. If we’re talking food — and yeah, let’s talk food! — we’ve got Guy’s Burger Joint (Guy Fieri, that is) and BlueIguana Cantina (tacos and burritos, that is) serving up casual bites throughout the day, and Cherry on Top to hit the sweet notes between meals, after meals… or whenever. So — young or old, no difference — as long as you have a healthy appetite for fun, there’s reason to get excited about a cruise aboard Carnival Ecstasy. Read more

If you’re looking for a vacation at sea that’s as colourful as the décor of the cruise ship taking you there, an entire palette of fun activities and hot spots awaits aboard Carnival Glory. For starters, there’s a rainbow of salsa options for dressing up your tacos and burritos at BlueIguana Cantina, while Guy’s Burger Joint serves up burgers designed by the colourful personality himself: celebrity chef Guy Fieri. Speaking of colourful personalities, you’ll enjoy a variety of stand-up comedians at The Punchliner Comedy Club. Picture yourself grabbing a drink at the open-air RedFrog Rum Bar or BlueIguana Tequila Bar… whichever colour or spirit’s more your style. Represent your favourite team’s colours and enjoy a round or two at the SkyBox Sports Bar. Enjoy a show on the stage at Playlist Productions, complete with singing and dancing, plus video screens that bring these productions an extra splash of colour. Speaking of a splash, at WaterWorks the fun flows down the winding curves of the classic Twister and all-new AquaTunnel waterslide — plus twin racing slides and a giant tipping bucket — for countless gallons of fun. And if a picture paints a thousand words, imagine the millions flying off the big screen during a film under the stars at Dive-In Movies. Yes, it’s Hollywood meets islands for a date night done right. We’re not just viewing this ship with rose-coloured lenses, either — it’s clear that the fun, eye-catching experiences all around you are the real deal… even the fantasy world of Seuss At Sea, where your favourite books (and characters!) come to life before your eyes. And from the people-watching potential of the Lido Deck to the see-and-be-seen White Heat Dance Club, Carnival Glory pulls out the stops. It even shows its true colours as it satisfies your stomach with sit-down dining options like the Emerald Room Steakhouse and the aptly-named Golden and Platinum Restaurants. And wait ‘till you see the Camel Club Casino — proof that Carnival Glory is a real looker and a truly special cruise ship. Look to Carnival Glory for one vibrant time at sea. Read more

Carnival Freedom offers some of the latest and greatest features across our fleet. As you explore the ship, you’ll find food options galore. Feast your eyes on dining rooms Posh and Chic, and look to Freedom Restaurant on Lido Deck for mouth-watering Guy Fieri burgers at Guy’s Burger Joint, plus the greatest tacos and burritos this side of the pier at BlueIguana Cantina. For every great food spot, there's a great place to enjoy drinks, too, from the toe-tapping Scott’s Piano Bar to the always-hoppin’ 70’s Dance Club. New libation hotspots include Alchemy Bar (cocktail magic central) and SkyBox Sports Bar (the 50-yard-line of fun). An outdoor, seaside bar is practically a cruise ship requirement, and everyone’s favourite is here… whether it’s the RedFrog Rum Bar or BlueIguana Tequila Bar. (Or hey, both!) The rum bar's older brother, RedFrog Pub, features drinks, live music and traditional pub games. Topping off adult-time is the one-and-(adult)-only Serenity Retreat, where total relaxation is not only encouraged, but pretty much required. If you’re a kid, Carnival Freedom means you’re in for a treat. Not only will you find new friends at one of three youth spaces — like the all-new Camp Ocean — but you can splash around with them in one of our many pools, speed down the Twister Waterslide, or once you dry off, challenge them to a round of mini-golf. Oh, and adults — don’t get jealous; your inner kid gets to do all this stuff too! Up on stage is Playlist Productions, featuring songs you know… and dance moves you’ll soon be using. And for a chance to get up on stage yourself, there’s Hasbro, The Game Show, where kids of all ages — even you, grandma — compete in larger-than-life Hasbro games come to life! And for the cherry on top… it’s actually called Cherry On Top. It’s the spot for something special, whether that something’s a little something sweet — or simply a little something to sweeten a special occasion. Read more

Carnival Pride charms, alright — it’s a treat for your eyes, your taste buds… and of course, your fun buds. Invite them all to come enjoy the vacation that this ship is proud to offer. Carnival Pride invites you to dine refined, from the zen-like simplicity of Bonsai Sushi to the art deco ocean liner inspiration of the Normandie Restaurant, not to mention the Renaissance-era allure of David’s Steakhouse. And of course there’s real, delectable substance under all that style. But for something a little more casual, loosen your tie… or maybe just throw it away and grab a main course (and fries) from our main man Guy Fieri, at Guy’s Burger Joint. The Mexican heat’s optional at BlueIguana Cantina, but make your next stop Cherry on Top — our candy-and-more store — where everything’s sweet. You’ll find yourself with room to move at the Beauties Dance Club, and a hard time sitting still at Playlist Productions. All around this cruise ship you’ll discover even more ways to stay cool, like an adult-only pool at Serenity, a fun-only midship pool featuring a retractable roof, plus Carnival Pride's splashy onboard waterpark, Carnival WaterWorks. Alongside the pool is the big-screen, big-fun Carnival Seaside Theater, while Seuss at Sea is a good time for kids who love a good rhyme. (We do!) Camp Ocean, Circle “C” and Club O2 prove that we’ve got hotspots for cool kids of all ages… while at Hasbro, The Game Show, kids and adults join forces in a larger-than-life game show showdown! And speaking of showdowns, every cruise features a series of them at Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, the fierce live show that kindly requests you bring your best moves and show us what you’ve got, up on stage.

It’s one thing to be fun, but it’s another thing to be first. Carnival Dream was at the forefront of a recent wave of amazingly innovative and fun Carnival ships. As the genesis of the Dream class, Carnival Dream set the direction for the ships that followed in her footsteps — first Carnival Magic and then Carnival Breeze. But back to Carnival Dream: the ship itself is a unique experience with the way-fun RedFrog Rum Bar and the very cool BlueIguana Tequila Bar. Get your appetite ready, because you’re gonna need it. Carnival Dream features two dual-level dining rooms, a gourmet steakhouse and dedicated sushi spot Bonsai Sushi. It’s also got a full menu of our latest and greatest casual spots for a bite: BlueIguana Cantina, Pizzeria del Capitano, Guy’s Burger Joint and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse. (That’s Guy as in Guy Fieri, by the way — so you know the food’s delish.) Carnival Dream also features the borderline-magical Alchemy Bar and Ocean Plaza, which combines tasty treats with perhaps even tastier entertainment. Entertainment options are all up and down the ship, and so is soaking-wet fun, from the heart-racing waterslide action at WaterWorks to the soul-soothing Thalassotherapy pool at the Cloud 9 Spa. Despite its name, Carnival Dream is definitely a reality. Can’t believe it? Pinch yourself… and book your dream cruise today. Read more

Legends are made, not born… and over time, this ship has become even more deserving of its nameplate. Let’s discover some of the secrets of Carnival Legend. If you’re out to find new legends, flip directly to the RedFrog Pub, featuring not only a mythical mascot but actual drinks — plus Caribbean atmosphere by the gallon. Your heroic journey down the Green Thunder waterslide is a saga you’ll recount for ages. Bonsai Sushi proves that you needn’t teach a man to fish for him to enjoy delicacies from the sea. And once you’ve had a look — not to mention a taste — at the certifiable cocktail magic of Alchemy Bar, you still may not believe your eyes. This ship, which pays tribute to some of the most enduring legends throughout the ages, still features classic Carnival Legend favourites. Take a dip in the Camelot and Avalon pools, wish for a fortune at Club Merlin Casino, and taste something savoury at Truffles Restaurant. There’s more than one way to dine at Lido Deck’s Unicorn Café, including handmade faves at Guy’s Burger Joint and fresh taco-burrito goodness at BlueIguana Cantina. And of course, there’s The Golden Fleece Steakhouse, where the great multi-course meal is no myth. Music lovers who go for the classics will love Billie’s Piano Bar. Anyone with a move in their groove will find Lip Sync Battle the place to let it out. Kids will tell and retell their tale of their favourite vacation, spent hanging out and meeting new friends at one of three supervised youth areas. And adults can get lost in a good book, or just one another’s company, at the legendarily kid-free Serenity Adult Only Area… and then dance the night away at Medusa’s Lair Dance Club. Activities on Carnival Legend? Nothing short of legendary. For a cruise vacation that’s sure to go down in your history books, turn to Carnival Legend. Read more

Carnival Miracle is a ship you may not believe when you see… but definitely, don’t miss seeing it! When we say that Carnival Miracle takes you to another world, we mean that in every sense. Not only does this ship visit stunning destinations, but features incredible onboard spaces inspired by elements of fantasy. Escape from reality as you take in a show at the Phantom Lounge, a drink at Odyssey Bar or a dance at Dr Frankenstein’s Lab. To lose yourself in a song, find your way to Sam’s Piano Bar. Hungry? You’ll find great food all over the place, from the casual fare of Horatio’s to the artful eats of the Bacchus and Ariadne dining rooms… not to mention the world-class cuts at Nick & Nora’s Steakhouse. At Alchemy Bar we make drinks into art, while the laid-back RedFrog Pub has ‘Caribbean cool’ down to a science. And up in SkyBox Sports Bar, we’ve combined luxury-box comfort with the up-close view from the 50-yard line. Up on stage are the real-deal, pretend-singing champs — for instance, maybe you! — among your fellow vacationers at Lip Sync Battle: Carnival. Outdoors there’s fun to be had, whether you’re down for water sliding or up for simply sunning — Carnival’s Twister Waterslide has you covered (in water, that is), and the Serenity Adult-Only Area will get you relaxing in the sun or the shade, grown-up-style. No matter your age, lifelong childhood-faves come to life at Hasbro, The Game Show. We’ve also got the interactive CLUE: The Murder Mystery woven dramatically throughout your entire voyage. And in case you forget, don’t forget: the sweetest way to cap off the day is with a treat from Cherry On Top, our onboard candy-and-more store. Read more

Modern open-air legends RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar, for instance, have come to claim their place in history, as has Alchemy Bar with its borderline-magical cocktails and Guy’s Burger Joint with its renowned eats designed by Guy Fieri. And BlueIguana Cantina with tacos and burritos made the classic way, of course: fresh and by hand. Then, just for the kids, we’ve got whole bunches of awesome stuff to do, all across the ship. There are age-appropriate chill spaces like Camp Ocean, Circle “C” and Club O2… plus the splashes-definitely-allowed of Carnival WaterWorks. (Actually, kids and adults alike are encouraged to make the most of this waterful thrill space.) Nothing brings the family together like the time-honoured tradition of food and fun, and there’s plenty of that to go around on Carnival Imagination. Oh, also: mini-golf. You can never play too many rounds of mini-golf, especially at sea. Read more

Your high seas hero Carnival Valor is here to rescue you from ordinary vacations and whisk you away to leisure, fun… and amazing destinations. On your way, you’ll find onboard food spots designed to regale your palates, like BlueIguana Cantina and Guy’s Burger Joint… plus the downright indulgent Scarlett’s Steakhouse. Let yourself be swept away to RedFrog Pub or Alchemy Bar for a drink, or get a little carried away rooting for your favourites at SkyBox Sports Bar. Kids can get caught up in all the excitement of being kids, hanging with others their age at Carnival Valor’s three supervised youth spaces. Or they can join the wacky, wonderful Dr. Seuss bunch for character story-time (and more!) at Seuss at Sea. And pretty much anyone, young or slightly-less-young, will be thrilled by our 214-foot long, four-deck-tall Twister waterslide. On the entertainment front, Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and presents them in song-and-dance, up-on-stage spectacular shows. And speaking of shows that transform… Hasbro, The Game Show turns childhood board game faves into large-scale competitive fun for the whole family. If you thought for a second your vacation might be boring, now you know not to fear — Carnival Valor has what it takes to save any vacation! Read more

All Carnival ships inspire guests to have a great time and a memorable vacation, but it won't surprise you to learn that the inspiration for Carnival Inspiration was nothing less than inspiration itself! This ship's uniquely creative spirit is easy to spot, shining all up and down the ship, as you cruise towards vacation. From the moment you step into the Grand Atrium, you'll realize that it isn't just a room with a high ceiling — it's a place of high art. Your dinner at one of the two main dining rooms is more than just a dish in front of you — it's the result of our chefs' culinary creativity. And the Paris and Candlelight Lounges aren't just rooms with some seats and a stage — they're spots for our performers to transport you to another place and time. For inspired food, fast, transport yourself to the BlueIguana Cantina, home of freshly stuffed tacos and burritos. Or if you're more in the burger mood, try Guy's Burger Joint, where they weren't just inspired by Guy Fieri they were designed by the guy himself. For the adults, there's RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, plus the borderline-magical Alchemy Bar. And for the kid in everyone, there's the truly sweet Cherry On Top. Speaking of kids, nothing inspires relaxation quite like letting them do their own thing and that dedication to adult chill time describes the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat to a 'T.' But when it's time to reunite, nothing inspires families to squeals, screams and splashes like a good waterslide something the onboard Carnival WaterWorks knows a thing (or two, to be precise) about. All of the above, and everything else there is to love about a Carnival cruise — from food to pools to comfy rooms — live on this ship, one where you can't help but find that creative spirit behind all the fun around you.

Carnival Elation was built to celebrate the muses who inspire the arts. Carnival guests like you can expect this ship to inspire you… to have tons of vacation fun. Not that Carnival Elation is going to have a hard time convincing you! As you head toward your destination, you’ll find plenty of spots to visit for a tasty bite — options like the taco-‘n-burrito goodness of BlueIguana Cantina, the burgers-‘n-fries combo of Guy’s Burger Joint, plus all the rotating goodness of Lido Restaurant. (Our suggestion: bring an appetite and try them all!) Carnival Elation also features places to enjoy a drink, from the all-chill Gatsby’s Bar to the friendly poolside rivals RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar… and don’t forget everybody’s friend, the always-swinging Duke’s Piano Bar. If being a kid is more your thing, we have plenty of ideas for how to spend your time. Activities that are age-appropriate, supervised — and of course, fun! — are available for the actual kids at one of three youth spaces. Then there’s the video arcade… oh, and did we mention the slidey, splashy, squirty Carnival WaterWorks? We didn’t, but we should have because both of these are fun for all — all ages, that is! Carnival Elation also now has Balcony staterooms, each one featuring an outdoor space designed to help you make the most of the natural sea breeze. You’ll see, and feel, that this ship is ready to inspire everyone in new ways. Read more

Everything the sunlight touches on Carnival Sunshine has been doused with an extra dose of fun. There's plenty to find atop this ship, where you can spend your days being kissed by the warm rays of the sun. Visit the biggest Serenity area ever, featuring three decks, plenty of recliners... and even a waterfall. Carnival WaterWorks, our onboard waterpark, doesn't just deliver the favorites... this one debuted the slick Speedway Splash slide. There's also SportSquare, where you can let your inner champion run free (around the jogging track), traverse SkyCourse high up above, or even engage in a little one-on-one, from ping pong to foosball to giant chess. When you're on your Carnival Sunshine cruise, step out of the sun and try out some shade (and it's some pretty cool shade, at that). The first thing you'll see is the Sunshine Atrium... and let's just say first impressions count. From there, check out dining options — this ship has everything under the Carnival sun — like Guy's Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse and JiJi Asian Kitchen. Some of the greatest Carnival bars are here: RedFrog Pub, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, SkyBox Sports Bar and Alchemy Bar... plus the already-classic Havana Bar! You'll enjoy musical revues from Playlist Productions, while Hasbro, The Game Show gets cruisers like you up on stage, competing in larger-than-life family favorites come to life. When you find yourself between the Carnival Sunshine and some actual sunshine, fun at sea is guaranteed. Read more

Carnival Vista has a whole new relationship to the sea, and you get to experience this as you explore the Caribbean with all-new views. It’s only natural that you’ll want to start outdoors, so let’s. You can’t help but have your eye caught by — wait, are those flying bicycles? Pretty much! SkyRide at SportSquare is a twin-track suspended bike course — strap in and race around for the win or just cruise for great views. At Havana Bar & Pool you’ll find an island retreat that evokes classic Cuban-style lounging with an emphasis on style… and on views, and on traditional cocktails! Carnival WaterWorks is packed to the gills with wet ways to get-a-splashin’, including Kaleid-O-Slide which adds funky light and color effects to the usual “speed-n-splash” story. If you can’t get enough Guy Fieri, we invite you to try at Guy’s Burger Joint and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse. Rounding out this ship’s sunlight highlights is Serenity Adult-Only Retreat, the low-key grown-up spot that’s more lounging and hot tubs than action and adventure. (But Serenity’s complimentary chopped salad station gets our inner grown-up excited!) Indoors, things are every bit as cool. Take RedFrog Pub & Brewery for example — yes, you read right, the latest incarnation of our Caribbean-cool pub has a fully-functional onboard brewery that produces exclusive craft beers you can enjoy just feet from the brewing kettle. If you do seafood, you’ll want to direct your appetite to Bonsai Sushi or the seaside Seafood Shack, while JiJi Asian kitchen and Cucina del Capitano are prepared to satisfy cuisine-specific cravings. Of course Carnival Vista features a Dr. Seuss Bookville and youth activities for all kinds of kids (the smallers, the tallers and the in-betweens). On the stateroom side, Carnival Vista adds two new types of rooms to the mix: Family Harbor is a special area reserved for families and features a private lounge. All Havana staterooms and suites are located just off the Havana Bar & Pool and feature a unique tropical décor, while Havana Cabanas add a patio with hammock chair! One last thing you should know: on Carnival Vista more onboard places than ever before span the indoors and outdoors — so whether you set the thermostat to “cool-and-crisp” or “sea-breezy perfection” you’ll enjoy your kind of Caribbean comfort on Carnival Vista.

At 1,004 feet, this one continued the Dream class tradition of large-scale, bow-to-stern cruise ship fun including the food-and-entertainment space Ocean Plaza, the splashy stylings of Carnival WaterWorks… and The Lanai, a convenient, scenic half-mile outdoor wraparound promenade deck. In other words, a cruise on Carnival Magic has no shortage of its namesake charm! It’s no surprise Carnival Magic debuted all-new ways to have a good time onboard and continues to prove it with the outdoor fitness-and-fun of SportSquare, featuring the world’s first ropes course at sea. This is also the ship that introduced the world to Cucina del Capitano, which serves up Italian favorites fit for a captain. And who can forget their first taste of RedFrog Pub, with it's laid-back, not-a-worry-to-be-found atmosphere… not to mention its exclusive, tasty, not-a-drop-to-be-found (on land, that is) beer, ThirstyFrog® Red. Keeping with the times, Carnival Magic features the delicious good times of Guy’s Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, Alchemy Bar and RedFrog Rum Bar… plus the first-of-its-kind Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse. And keeping with the moves, there’s even Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, which lets you showcase yours up on stage. Carnival Magic has a history of starting good things... and sharing them with guests.

There just isn’t enough vacation time to do everything, so you go for the widest variety, make the most of the moments… and above all, try to have the most fun whenever possible. All of you with the heads nodding, hands raised, folks who just stood up and cheered at the office — you’re Carnival Panorama’s people! Our next ship is packing all the best, most delicious fun from her sister ships Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon, but still manages to stand out. Carnival Panorama will sail from Long Beach, California — our first brand-new ship to grace the port in 20 years! This means L.A. style for sure, but this ship visits top spots across Mexico’s postcard-perfect Pacific coast: names like Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and more! Read more

When we look for inspiration, we look to the sea and the sky. Sail with us and you’ll notice the two aren’t divided, but actually united by this one perfect line — the very same one that inspired our next ship: Carnival Horizon. Carnival Horizon also unites… getting you together with great fun, comfort, dining and exotic destinations. And most importantly, with one another. Read more
