Carnival Liberty: Kids’ Activities and Family Fun

Is life a journey or a destination? On Carnival Liberty™, you can have it both ways! A family cruise from Port Canaveral to The Bahamas is the perfect vacation, especially for a diverse crew of varying ages and interests.

Your family will cherish the experiences they create aboard this floating playland, as you cruise on the wide blue sea in anticipation of The Bahama’s white beaches and crystal-clear waters.

Along the way, you can indulge the tastes of every mariner in your crew with both planned and unstructured activities. You’ll create the perfect mix of relaxation and exhilaration that makes a vacation hit the spot.

Carnival Liberty family cruises are especially great for extended families and social groups to connect and spend quality time together, making memories that will last a lifetime.

Family Fun Activities

Whether your kids are super-motivated fun seekers, who like to fill every moment with a new challenge or stimulating experience, or the dreamier types who just want to take in the view, breath in the balmy air and linger over a book or drawing, they won’t be bored on the Carnival Liberty.

There are plenty of activities for family time, and when it’s time to go your separate ways, we’ve got that covered too.

Twister Waterslide

Wooosh! The fun Twister Waterslide atop the Carnival Liberty is the fastest, most exhilarating path to a drenching. Who will be first in line to race down the slippery loops to splashy finish, only to do it all again?

Video Arcade

A 24-hour video arcade will make your gamers happy day or night. They can play iconic favorites or try new challenges, all while trying to beat the top score. Let the kids play while the adults do their thing, or bring the generations together to enjoy an arcade experience that spans the decades.
