TOP NEWS, NOTES & FUN

Find out about great spots to visit, the perfect time to sail, new ships we’ve got on the way and more. Now this is news you can cruise!


The ship’s going to be amazing when it sets sail in 2020, but what never-before-seen experiences can you expect on Mardi Gras? Let’s see… we’ve got an Emeril restaurant on board featuring some of his favorite Creole dishes, while there’s Family Feud™ Live action up on stage… and quite possibly the sweetest suites ever, which come complete with perks to match.



The next new ship in line is Carnival Panorama — we’re building it now, but we’re (virtually) ready to let you fly though its promenades, bars, restaurants, entertainment spaces, comfy balcony staterooms and more. This ship is going to make West Coast cruising even more incredible, sailing from Long Beach starting in December!



Carnival Sunrise is ready for you! There’s so many bright spots on this ship — some of our latest dining spots, bars and pubs and more — that this ship can’t wait to share it all with three home ports: Norfolk, Ft. Lauderdale and NYC! Cruise to the Caribbean anytime, but keep an eye open for special limited voyages to amazing spots like Bermuda, Cuba, Canada & New England, and the Panama Canal.



Look outside and you’ll see that we’re springing into summer — and this part of the year happens to be primetime for planning a fall vacation. Booking early isn’t just going to get you great prices, but an amazing selection of staterooms, destinations and dates.



If you’re looking for the best answer to what you did on your summer vacation… say that you explored Alaska. (Oh, but do actually go!) Cruising season up there kicks off in April, and a Carnival cruise is an amazing way to check out some of Alaska’s finest coastal cities… plus glaciers and fjords in between!



Europe’s one amazing place to explore, but we have two great ways to do it: cruise the laid-back Mediterranean and countries like Italy, Spain and France; or chill alongside the great glaciers of Norway.



What do you think these seven departure ports that can get you to Cuba have in common? Oh no… we gave away the surprise! Anyway, they are: Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Norfolk, Tampa, Charleston, Port Canaveral and New York, and every single one is a great way to visit the history-packed traveler’s jewel of Havana.



Halfoween is upon us. Yes, you heard us right — this new-ish spring tradition isn’t just a random good time, but a great reminder that we’re about six months away from Halloween. That makes now the perfect time to plan a spooky-fun cruise for October, packed with costumes, activities, tricks, treats and more!



At Carnival, we prove it with military discounts on cruise fare… but it doesn’t end there! Whether you’re active or retired, come out and join us at the Military Appreciation Gathering — held on absolutely every cruise — where we honor the courage and commitment made by soldiers… and of course, their families.



One great place to kick off a Caribbean cruise is Galveston… and it’s even better when there’s an awesome ship like Carnival Dream setting sail from there. Starting in May, enjoy all the fun this ship has to offer on 4- and 5-day cruises to some of the best spots in the Western Caribbean.
