Skipping the prepping, the cooking, and the cleaning sounds good to everybody. Say yes to a real-deal, traditional sit-down Thanksgiving meal… surrounded by your friends and family on a vacation at sea they’ll never forget.
Enjoy the tasty turkey dinner you’ve been waiting for all year, along with all the traditional trimmings. Afterwards, the whole family can try a new tradition: we’ve got after-dinner trivia and a fun duck “hunt” lined up.
This year, give thanks at sea and leave the holiday stress far, far behind.

Funtastic Thanksgiving Cruises
THANKSGIVING FUN… AND SO MUCH MORE
Funtastic Thanksgiving cruises also include all the fun of a typical Carnival cruise.
Delight the foodie within, with delicious food options all over the ship:
- There are tons of places to grab a casual bite, sit down to dining room meals or go premium at the onboard steakhouse.*
- Find our chefs showing off a little — from comfort food to exotic delicacies, get ready to discover new favorites, always fresh.
- Kids’ menus are ready to please even the pickiest of eaters.
- Any hour of the day — all 24 of ‘em — is the best time to enjoy pizza, soft-serve and room service.
*Steakhouse available on select ships. On other ships, check your dining room menu for Steakhouse Selections.
Your to-do list never looked this good:
- Enjoy a high-energy stage show spectacular featuring singers, dancers and tunes you love.
- Move to the beat of live music performances, plus DJs spinning in locations around the ship.
- There’s something funny about our onboard comedy club, which features laugh-out-loud performances, some just for adults and some for everyone.
- Gather at the club, grab a drink and party till late, all to the beat of the latest tunes and classics.
There’s fun in the sun for everyone:
- Get way-wet spiraling down twisty waterslides, splashing into pools… and don’t forget the poolside bars.
- Adults have their own place to relax away from all the hustle and the… well, kids: Serenity Adult-Only Retreat™!
- There are plenty of ways to play — and what’s more, win — with outdoor sports activities like mini-golf.
- Pack your running shoes — there’s a jogging track with an ocean view and a breeze!
Kids & Teens
Relax knowing they're having just as much fun:
- Carnival cruises feature supervised kids' activities all day long, where they can hang out and make new friends.
- There are three separate kids' areas: Camp Ocean® for ages 2-11, Circle “C®” for 12-14 and Club O2® for 15-17.
- Whatever kind of fun they're into — games, movies, music, karaoke and more — we've got it.
- Keep them in good hands, while you enjoy evening entertainment, with available babysitting service.
It’s your home away from home… plus a little more:
- Open the door and you’ll find soft, comfy linens, plus a full private bathroom with shower. All the comforts of home!
- You’ve got a room steward, ready to take care of your needs.
- Room service is always on the menu, 24 hours a day (and night!). Delivery is just a quick call away.
- Some rooms come with a view, some with balconies… and some even have a connecting door or extra half-bathroom!
There’s Carnival-style fun waiting at every port:
- For your Thanksgiving cruise, choose from the tropical Caribbean islands, The Bahamas and its crystal-clear waters, or culture-packed Mexico.
- Wake up in a new port each morning — it’s like taking multiple vacations in a single trip!
- Find great activities ashore like snorkeling, parasailing or swimming with dolphins.
- Taking it slow is always an option, too — think sunning on the beach, catamaran cruising or swaying hammocks in the shade.
Gather everyone ‘round our table… and you’re gonna have delicious photos to share!
