It's a big world out there… and where there's big fun, there's probably a Carnival cruise. Choose your destination, and cruise your family towards a vacation they'll remember.
Ready to fall in love with the Caribbean, mon? (Or maybe "mom"?) So is the rest of the family! Everyone warms up to fun in the sun, and best of all, mild climate means it doesn’t even matter what time of year you go. A Carnival cruise takes the whole bunch to some of the greatest hotspots stretching across the world's designated hotspot.
You know where to find them, and you may have even heard what's good here, but it's not until you and the family get here that you'll truly get it. Cruise to The Bahamas — and enjoy beaches, snorkeling, palm trees and more — and you'll understand what makes them one of those classic cruise destinations.
So close, yet so far. Mexico might be right down there, but it exists in another world entirely. Let the kids experience all the rich culture of a land where the ports are as varied as all the fun stuff inside a piñata. Whether your cruising style is west-coast Riviera or east-coast Caribbean, you'll find Mexico central to a great cruise.
If your first thought is "Alaska... cool!" you're on the right track — even in the mild summer season, the family should still pack their sweaters. Grab them and get up here, where the spectacular scenery everywhere you look makes it seem like Mother Nature is pretty much just showing off.
Canada and New England may not spring to mind when you think of family cruise destinations, but they should because the perfect way to experience this naturally gorgeous, history-packed region is to arrive by sea. Back when ships were how people traveled — but weren't as much fun as today — ports like Halifax, Boston and Saint John were some of the most important, and they continue to harbor great history (and good looks) to this day.
If you're looking to make an exotic destination your next family vacation, let's talk about the 'how' and 'why' of Hawaii. The answers are as follows: on a Carnival cruise, of course; and… because this place is simply spectacular! Say yes to Hawaii and let the whole bunch explore exotic locations — featuring beaches, volcanoes, waterfalls — that stretch across an island chain so amazing that you may forget you're in the states!
The Panama Canal was built to speed up long voyages, so ships wouldn't have to sail all the way around South America. Can you believe that what started as a shortcut is today an amazing family cruise destination? An engineering marvel, the canal isn’t the only historic sight to see during your voyage, but is one of the coolest ways to see the great ports that dot the Central American coast.
This British territory may follow tradition, but has plenty of local flair to call its own. Visit the island with the unique blend of green hills, pastel-colored homes, and pink-sand beaches — the perfect backdrop for world-class golf, glass-bottom boats, swimming with dolphins, mountain biking and shopping.
Location is everything, and Tahiti and Fiji have plenty of it. That doesn’t mean they're in the middle of everything — more like the middle of the Pacific Ocean — and that’s the point! Marvel at how there's pretty much nothing else around… nothing but bountiful beaches, magnificent mountains and plenty of palm trees. For a truly secluded family getaway, just cross the equator — look for a Carnival cruise featuring these South Pacific island gems.
