TOP NEWS, NOTES & FUN

Find out when’s the perfect time to take a cruise, what’s new on our newest ships, how to have a spectacular holiday at sea and more. Now this is news you can cruise!


By this point you might say you know what to expect from Mardi Gras: an amazing vacation full of great stuff. (And you’re right!) But we just announced some of the most exciting ones you’ll find in the Summer Landing and Lido zones. Get ready for serious flavor from RedFrog Tiki Bar, Street Eats, The Watering Hole, Big Chicken and more!



Summer is a good season for cruising. (And so is fall.) Winter works as well… and let’s not forget spring. Basically, it’s always summer! What we’re saying is the best time to go is always going to be whatever month looks good on your calendar — the places we sail to are always full of summer fun!



We know it’s only summer, and the holiday season is still a ways away. But when you’re planning on celebrating a holiday at sea, you’ll want to plan ahead! This year, celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s at sea, bring the people who matter to you, and make unforgettable 2019 memories.



Carnival Sunrise is more than just a ship with a new name — it’s a ship with a ton of new features. From the latest dining spots to bars and pubs, sports activities to spa relaxation and more, Carnival Sunrise has unique destinations to share with homeports Norfolk, Ft. Lauderdale and NYC!



There are two ways to explore Europe with Carnival: a) the fun way, or b) the fun way. Wait, what? We’ll explain — Fun-Way-A is cruising the Mediterranean visiting countries like Italy, Spain and France… while Fun-Way-B means chilling among the great glaciers of Norway. Either Europe option you choose, there’s fun in your future, for sure.



Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, Vancouver and San Francisco aren’t just great West Coast cities… they’re also amazing spots to begin your next cruise! Start here, hop on a ship and head toward destinations like the Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii and even the Panama Canal.



Who wouldn’t want a longer vacation? Sure, Carnival Journeys cruises are all 9 days or longer, but there’s more to these sailings than a lot of vacation — you’ll visit great destinations, have opportunities for personal enrichment at the onboard Academy of Fun and even enjoy classic cruise flair on Throwback Sea Day.
