Carnival Fun Italian Style

Where did these ships get all this cool Italian flair? Thank our sister line Costa Cruises (Grazie, sorella!), but the onboard fun makes these ships our own! There’s the new experiences inspired by Costa’s heritage, like exclusive Terrazza staterooms and great spots to sip like the Frizzante wine bar or fun frozen drink spot Rococó… plus more great flavor in the form of Mex-Italian fusion at Tomodoro and elevated Italian classics at Il Viaggio. Speaking of classics, you can also expect plenty of Carnival fan-faves among the onboard food, entertainment and service.

Get to Know Carnival Venezia

It's a long way from Venice to NYC, but Carnival Venezia thinks the two could be next-door neighbors. This ship is now sailing from its Big Apple homeport... and already has big Port Canaveral plans for the winter/spring 2025 season!

What can you expect to find in this ship? Well, there’s more than a little Italy in this one — that’s why we’re calling this new type of cruising Fun Italian Style. It starts with the Venice-inspired atrium Piazza San Marco, the onboard flavor and flair continues at the three-course Marco Polo and Canal Grande Restaurants, La Strada Grill and its Italian street food, plus fusion spots Tomodoro (Mexican-Italian, yum!) and Guy’s Burger Joint (new burgers with Italian flavors — also yum!). And in authentic ristorante style, the elevated Italian of Il Viaggio. Sip well at bars that each specialize in their own thing: complex and sophisticated cocktails at Amari, bubbly stuff (plus snacks and coffee) at Frizzante, frozen everything at Rococó and fine Italian wines at Carnevale Bar & Lounge. There’s great entertainment at the red-velvety Teatro Rosso and its Playlist Productions shows, plus Gondola Lounge was inspired by the famous canals of Venice. Terrazza staterooms are a whole new way to stay in style and comfort, all in a great location close to amenities like the exclusive Terrazza Carnevale, a private terrace deck made for lounging, sipping and fun, day or night!

There’s also a lot of the classic Carnival fun that repeat cruisers ( hey there!) know and love. Deliciously familiar flavors come from spots like Bonsai Teppanyaki and Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse, while celebration spots include Piano Bar 88 and Serenity Bar, and relaxation happens at Cloud 9 Spa and Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. For the kids, there’s spaces just right for their age like Camp Ocean, Circle “C”® and Club O2®. And outdoors, get ready for a very splashy WaterWorks and SportSquare featuring a ropes course, jogging track, mini golf and outdoor fitness center.

So as we were saying… hey, we’re cruising here! Carnival Venezia and all this Fun Italian Style sailing now from NYC. Andiamo!
