Life On-Board
 
Welcome to your home away from home – that is, if your home is the length of three football fields and every square inch of it is packed with cool things to discover. Let’s see, you could watch a movie at Carnival’s Seaside TheatreSM, shoot hoops at the basketball court, or play 9 holes of mini-golf. Serious splash enthusiasts can swoosh down the giant twisty waterslides while fitness fans can get their fix (and incredible ocean views) at the indoor fitness center or outdoor jogging track. And if relaxation is what you’re looking for, there’s pampering aplenty at the spa and quiet times on the adult-only Serenity deck. Of course, you could always just grab a fruity drink on the Lido deck and let your worries drift away into the horizon. It isn’t just about recreation onboard. We’re kinda famous for our great eats and entertainment, too. So read on, fun person, read on.

Dining
 
You’re away from home and even your taste buds are feeling adventurous. Good thing, because from breakfast to dinner to midnight snacks, we’ve got great things cooking.
  • Feeling casual? Try our Lido deck buffet or New York-style deli.
  • Care to be served? Step into our glittering main dining room for lobster and finish with our popular Warm Chocolate Melting Cake.
  • In a formal frame of mind? Make a reservation and join us at the steakhouse for delicious USDA Prime aged steaks, cooked to perfection.
  • Want just a nibble? May we suggest our 24-hour complimentary stateroom service or a pastry and cappuccino from our European-style café?
  • Need a nosh? We’ve got round-the-clock soft-serve ice cream, pizza by the slice, a sushi bar, made-to-order
  • omelets, Mongolian Wok stir-fry, and so much more.<.ul> It’s all about what you want, when you want it. With Carnival’s Your Choice DiningSM, you eat when you’re hungry. (Novel concept, right?) You can choose a set dinner seating time, or be seated restaurant-style whenever you like, with Your Time DiningSM.

Entertainment
 
Fun doesn’t end when the sun sets on a Carnival cruise – in fact, that’s when we’re just getting started! Our broadway-style stage shows will have you jumping to your feet for a standing ovation. Like laughing so hard it hurts? Head on over to the Punchliner comedy club. Then there’s the casino. Stop by and try your luck at the craps table, double down at blackjack, or put on your poker face during Texas hold ’em. If lounges are more your scene, we’ve got something for every mood. Sing along to your favorites at the piano bar, cozy up to live jazz, wow the crowd during karaoke, or enjoy a cold one watching the big game. And if you’re looking to dance the night away, look no further than our nightclub where the beats are thumpin’ all night long.
Accommodations
 
Welcome to your own private sanctuary, filled with all the comfy, cozy things you need for rest and relaxation after a fun-packed day. Every stateroom onboard is outfitted with dreamy linens, soft towels and plush robes, all part of our Carnival Comfort Collection®. For really good value, book an Interior stateroom. Want a great view? Try an Ocean View or Balcony stateroom. And if you want something super special, go for a Suite or Grand Suite. These extra-large staterooms have a separate sitting area, balcony, whirlpool bath, walk-in dressing area and VIP check-in. Can we get a ‘whoo-hoo’?!

On a Carnival cruise vacation, we make sure there’s enough love to go around, with age-appropriate programs, family amenities and plenty of options for everyone. And all of our youth activities are supervised by our Youth Staff, who have college degrees in related fields or professional childcare experience. Here are just a few ways we keep families happy.
  • Camp Carnival™ —Young kids ages 2–5 are going to have a blast with toys and arts and crafts. Juniors ages 6–8 can make spin art and play games. And kids ages 9–11 can chill at pool parties and go on scavenger hunts. Fun x 3!

There is no smoking allowed in any of the public areas except in designated open deck areas, some dance and jazz clubs, and designated areas in the casino. Smoking in cabins and on balconies is not permitted. Guests who smoke in their cabins or on their balconies will be charged a $250 fee.

Seuss at Sea

Carnival Cruise Lines is partnering with Dr. Seuss Enterprises to bring this favorite brand to life throughout the fleet. Starting with the Carnival Splendor, which became the first "Fun Ship" to offer Seuss at Sea, the program features exciting dining and entertainment experiences for kids and the whole family. Popular Seuss characters interact with guests in activities like the Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with the Cat in the Hat and Friends, and Seuss-a-palooza Story Time offers an interactive reading event for kids of all ages in a colorful tent on stage in the main show lounge. Seuss at Sea is available fleetwide.


Explore the Ships
 
Our ships can be summed up in one word: amazing. Well, maybe two words: amazing and exciting. Okay, make it two words plus one hyphenated word: amazing, exciting and jaw-dropping. But don’t take our word(s) for it. Take a look around. Just keep in mind that every ship is special in its own way, so features vary from ship to ship.
