Celebration Key™


Now — for the first time ever! — we’re building a new destination from the ground-up. And this one, nestled on the south side of Grand Bahama island, is designed exclusively for Carnival guests. It’s perfect for adults, families with kids… everybody who appreciates fun and natural beauty.

What you’ll find there is just like Carnival’s onboard vibe that folks love. When your ship pulls up, the vacation possibilities are expanded with unique island-style fun, relaxation and adventure spread across 65 acres and five “portals” for you to explore. Each portal is distinctly different, made for another side of Carnival fun… plus get ready for unforgettable experiences like a mile-long white sand beach, largest freshwater lagoons in the Caribbean, local Bahamian flavors and shopping, plus excursions and more.

Celebration Key™ opens in summer 2025, but look for more details soon!



Paradise Plaza greets you and gets you on your way to discovering what's great on Celebration Key, because who can wait to dive right in? There’s a lot to see, but before you do, you might want to grab something cool from the ice cream shop or stop for a splashy photo-op by the Bahamian-inspired fountain. Keep an ear open for live music, too, as you decide what to do first — guest services and the excursion desk are nearby to help with that! And off in the distance, it’s a Suncastle featuring waterslides and an observation deck. Okay, off you go!


Calypso Lagoon is the adult-friendly portal, and it’s all about the sand, sun and fun… and there’s about as much lively action to find as there are ways to chill. Relax on a float, try a lounger by the lagoon, go full-cabana, hang at a bar where all the seats are actually swings, or get in the game at the sports court. So go ahead and work up — or relax up — an appetite, because Calypso Lagoon is also home to great dining options, with two full-service restaurants serving a variety of cuisines and specializing in local Bahamian flavors. There’s also an adults-only area — call it a getaway within a getaway — that’s decked out with a swim-up bar near the DJ’s island, and an exclusive area on the neighboring beach.


The Family-Friendly Portal is perfect for kids and families… and that means teens too! All-together is a great way to experience activities like the lagoon and beach, splash pad with shallow pool, and sports courts, but spaces for kids and teens also let fun with new friends happen while the adults do their own thing. Beach villas and floating cabanas are just a couple of options that let families make this their home base, and of course there's family dining with plenty of cuisine choices.


Upgrade your day with access to the Adults-Only Private Club Portal, the exclusive area that takes relaxation and luxury to the next level. Membership features private access to the beach, a stunning infinity pool overlooking the best views of Bahamian waters, elevated dining to savor and more. Imagine the kind of spot where the lounge chairs are perfectly placed below the palm trees, so… ahhh, right? It's also a beautiful place to say “I do,” with an event pavilion for hosting weddings, vow renewals and other special celebrations.


The Retail Portal, known as Lokono Cove, is a colorful showcase of Bahamian culture and shopping. Among the kiosks, stores and straw market, some highlights include local artist exhibitions, a mural wall, live music performances… plus artisanal goods made by Bahamian vendors, so you can bring home a piece of paradise for yourself, or a gift with a great story behind it. And if you're seeking some sparkle, get ready for duty-free jewelry and diamond shopping.

Unlock your paradise with Celebration Key.
