What to Know About Cruising as a Group

Find A Sailings

The reason groups of people come together are as different and varied as the groups themselves. Family reunion, bachelor party, girls’ weekend… you name it, there’s no substitute for in-person, face-to-face contact. And actually getting out there is still the only way to vacation! A Carnival cruise is a great way to bring people together while still having enough variety to let everyone do their own thing — the combo of great destinations and fun stuff to do on the way helps everyone get what they want out of their trip.



activities and entertainment for everyone


  • Your ship features a casino, sports bar, dance club, comedy shows, live music, stage performances and more.

  • Bask in the sunshine while enjoying great stuff like waterslides, mini-golf, pools… and poolside bars.

  • Enjoy all this with your group, or split up and let everyone do their own thing while exploring the ship.

It’s easy to reserve staterooms


  • We make booking multiple staterooms at the same time really easy. Book your entire group’s vacation right here, all at once!

  • There’s a variety of room types to choose from: some with a view, some with balconies, and even some with a little extra luxury.

So, where to?


  • Opt for the Caribbean and its scenic island sunsets, the Mediterranean with history-packed port cities, or Alaska full of mountains and glaciers. And these are just a few of our destinations!

  • Everyone can take their pick of fun stuff like zip-lining, parasailing, ATV riding, or exploring caves, cathedrals or medieval castles.

  • Take things a little slower — think relaxing beach lounging, catamaran cruising, or tours featuring hands-on cultural experiences.

  • There are tons of options for grabbing a casual bite, sitting down to dining room meals or going premium at the onboard steakhouse.

  • Make reservations for The Chef’s Table. Your group can enjoy cascading courses of dining surprises, plus a galley tour with our chef.
