Daytime Entertainment

Days on a Carnival Cruise Line ship are all about having fun, which is why there is so much to choose from. For thrill-seeking adventurers, the waterpark, rope courses and roller coaster available on some of the fleet are bound to delight, while families can get together and make memories at the mini-golf course, video arcade and cinema. However, when the younger guests are off making friends at the dedicated kids' clubs, adults will find plenty of relaxing spaces for them to unwind and enjoy some peace and quiet:

  • Cloud 9 Spa for rejuvenating treatments

The fun doesn't stop once evening arrives as with Carnival Cruise Line, there's enough to keep you up and exploring until the early hours.

  • Live Shows- from sing-alongs in bars to Broadway-style theatre shows, daring acrobatics, side-splitting comedy and incredible dance troupes, entertainment during your cruise is so varied that you won't have to watch the same show twice (unless of course you want to!).
  • Casino- if your fun-packed holiday has got you feeling lucky, why not spend an evening in the onboard casino and see if it's your turn to win big on the games tables or slot machines?
  • Bars- when it comes to finding a spot to enjoy your drink, there's no shortage of venues during your Carnival Cruise. From innovative drinks at the Alchemy Bar to a sports pub where you won't miss a match, everyone will find their favourite place to spend the evening during their cruise.

Covid-19 safety measures

  • Onboard

    To make sure that guests wash their hands as often as possible, more hand sanitiser stations and hand wash sinks will be installed in busy locations, as well as outside every restaurant. Food stations will be staffed where possible, and where this can't be achieved, such as at a condiment station, crew will be on hand to prompt guests.

  • Cleaning

    In areas with high traffic such as restaurants, bars and lounges, as well as surfaces that are often touched including handrails, door handles and chairs, the frequency of cleaning will be increased. In addition, each night a deep clean and disinfection of these areas will be undertaken. Staterooms and suites will be cleaned up to twice daily, with a focus on bathrooms and surfaces which are frequently touched. If a guest shows flu-like symptoms, their room will also undergo an additional deep clean.

  • Medical

    Should any guest show flu-like symptoms, they will be able to receive free consultations at the onboard Medical Centre
