Carnival welcomes you aboard with a warm smile. A Carnival cruise lets you exercise your inalienable right to have as much fun as possible. To laugh uncontrollably, dance excessively and indulge yourself unsparingly. Everything starts the minute you come aboard. Take your pick from a variety of dining experiences and a host of onboard activities to fill your days and nights with pure, never-stop-smiling fun. Then it's off to exciting destinations. Of course, how long the fun lasts is also up to you - Carnival offers everything from 3 to 18 day cruises. And with 22 ports of departure, 14 in the continental US alone, there's sure to be one close to you. How much fun can you handle? Once you decide, there's no limit to the memories you'll create aboard a Carnival cruise.
What is it about Carnival that separates us from the rest?
For starters, our fleet of "Fun Ships" features everything you would find in a quality land-based resort and then some. More than that though, it's an attitude. It's a commitment to consistently deliver fun, memorable vacations to our guests that no other cruise line can offer. Not to mention all of the beautiful destinations you'll visit on your cruise. Best of all, you'll only have to unpack once. It's truly an incredible vacation and an unbelievable value.
If that isn't reason enough, how about celebrating on Carnival. And, it's more than just birthdays, family reunions and anniversaries. It's anything that makes you feel like, well, celebrating. Carnival knows how to celebrate - whatever reason you to have to party, pop open the champagne or cut the cake!

More remodeled staterooms showcasing the Carnival Comfort Collection. More fun-filled activities for kids and teenagers at our Camp Carnival, Circle "C" and Club O2.

No matter how you define fun, you'll find an exciting version of it on stage, in the lounges and clubs, and at the tables in the casino. On a Carnival cruise ship, every night is a night on the town.
The Stage is Set.
Sit back and enjoy the talented musicians and singers, the high-stepping dancers and the brightly spangled costumes in the main showroom. Every night is a different show and every night is an extravaganza. And no matter where you sit, you'll think you've got the best seat in the house.
Turns Out Lady Luck Likes to Cruise As Well.
One roll of the dice, one hand of cards or one coin drop at the slots could really make your night. It could also make your day, because our friendly, fun-filled casino is always open when you're out at sea. Of all the sounds in the world, is there a more exciting one than the ka-ching of falling coins? We don't think so either.
Let Us Entertain You. Or You Can Entertain Us.
Our singers will have you swaying to the beat of your favorite songs. Our comics will have you clutching your sides with laughter. And in our karaoke bar, the headliner could be you. If that's too much attention and you don't want to solo, you can always join in around the piano bar.
Don't Forget to Share the Journey with Your Mind, Body and Spirit.
Rejuvenate at Spa Carnival.
The endless pursuit of fun can wear you out. So why not treat yourself to a soothing massage, or let your body soak up the renewing effects of exfoliants or aromatherapy. Then wrap yourself in super soft towels as you simply relax the day away.
