Carnival offers a cruise vacation for every life style & interest for every age. We say the “new” Carnival because for those who have not experienced the new Carnival fleet, they are in for a treat. This is not the party cruise line of yesterday year. Onboard a Carnival cruise you will find a mix of singles, couples, families and seniors. Because of the prices offered by Carnival Cruises, it attracts many who are new to cruising as a vacation option. They are also a great option for friends traveling on a group cruises or families traveling on a family cruise vacations.
Carnival Cruise Lines offers the largest cabin size afloat among the large ship cruise lines. In some cases their cabin sizes are 50% larger than their competition. You can always expect plenty of storage room in a Carnival Cruise Lines cabin as well as their now famous Comfort Bed in each cabin. They are so confident you will love the Comfort Bed, they have put it into production for you to order for your bedroom at home.

Onboard, duty free shopping has always been a strong aspect of a Carnival cruise. The bargains are abound, changing daily, and are protected and guaranteed by Carnival Cruises so you can purchase with confidence.
Every vessel contains a major show lounge where you will enjoy spectacular Vegas style shows every two nights during a seven night cruise as well as comedy acts and/or international singers on the other nights. Because music is such an important part of the Carnival cruise experience there will be a least three bands and an orchestra playing for your enjoyment. Each lounge or club will offer a different type of musical style, so you may enjoy soft jazz, country western, top 40, disco, and salsa. All in one night!
Spa Carnival consists of a complete fitness center featuring state-of-the-art stair steppers, stationary bikes, treadmills, and free weights. Bring your headset for use with the many televisions provided for use while you workout. Sauna, whirlpools and steam room use are included at no extra charge on every Carnival Cruise. A diverse list of fitness classes are available while on board including spinning classes, yoga, step and palates classes. There may be a small charge for some of these classes, but that always keeps the participant levels down to those who are serious about working out. Carnival Cruises is known for the great number of motivational lectures offered on health, nutrition, and body image, offered at no charge by the fitness and spa experts on board. Many times the lecture may include a free mini treatment and/or samples of the luxurious spa products available for purchase.
Carnival Cruise Lines has long been applauded and copied for their children’s and teen programs on board. This is the first cruise line and remains one of the strongest in their dedicated space and activities for the young. Ages 2 through 14 years of age are divided into age appropriate groups, for example, and the teen group has a “club” of their own. All age groups participate in a year round supervised program conducted by trained professionals. There is a youth center with computers and play areas, ExerSeas recreational fitness programs, and A-B-Seas reading programs featuring storytelling, skits, and puppets on all ships.
Club 02 for teens is an exclusive program for teens 15 to 17. In the “club” they will find their own dance club, video games, movies and more – on select ships. There is a Teen Director on every ship organizing fun parties, activities, sports and teen only shore excursions. Definitely, this aspect of Carnival Cruise Lines makes them an excellent choice for family cruises or family reunion group cruises.
Carnival Cruises has invested heavily in the expertise that will bring to you an outstanding dining experience without driving up the cost of their cruise vacation offers. For instance, lobster is offered on the menu of every cruise, even those lasting only 3 nights. Their seaview bistro offering buffet food stations for breakfast, lunch and dinner is one of the best at sea.
