Looking for fun? Look no further than Carnival cruises. The activities, food, destinations and excursions all aim at one thing: to make you smile. Perfect for families and couples. Perfect for you.
Carnival will take you to the world’s most amazing spots: the Caribbean, Bahamas, Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, Canada and New England, Europe, and Tahiti. Getting there may be half the fun, but the other half is the excursions. Dive in a submarine off the coast of Aruba, whale watch in Honolulu, or take a helicopter ride through Juneau. There’s no shortage of awesome. And coming soon, Carnival adds New Zealand and the Pacific Islands to its routes.
Onboard a Carnival cruise, guests can enjoy a wide variety of entertaining activities. Adults can relax at Serenity, the adult’s only retreat, or experience a seven-course meal during a private dinner at the chef’s table. Kids can hang out in the various youth programs tailored to their age – there are arts and crafts, and story time for the little ones, talent shows and pool parties for the young teens and older teens can hang out in the exclusive Club O2 lounge to enjoy music, movies, and dance parties with their friends.
When it comes to quality family time, Carnival’s got you covered. Basketball, putt putt golf, waterslides, stage shows, family dinners and more. Quality time is fun time aboard Carnival.
We guarantee the best cruise deals and will beat any quote, - or you sail for free.

Guests can pay their shipboard gratuities in one of two ways:
1. Reverse Gratuity Policy - For guests' convenience, a recommended gratuity can be automatically added to the onboard Sail & Sign account on embarkation day.
Guests will have the discretion to adjust these gratuities based upon the level of service received during the cruise. This includes the option to adjust gratuities (up or down) for any individual on the Dining or Housekeeping staff. In order to do so, the guest will need to visit the Information Desk on board.
2. Pre-Paid Gratuity Policy - Gratuities are pre-arranged and paid at the time of booking or any time up to two weeks prior to the sail date.
All guests on each booking must prepay the gratuities, with the exception of children under two. The pre-paid gratuities can not be removed once the booking has been ticketed. The guest will not have the option to adjust the gratuities (up or down) based on the level of service received during the cruise.
The dollar amount of the gratuities will appear in the Miscellaneous Charge field on the booking. The guest copy on the cruise ticket will indicate if gratuities have been paid.
The total amount will be $11.50 per guest, per day, which breaks down as follows:
$6.50 pp/pd for Dining Team Service (Headwaiter and Waiter)
$1.00 pp/pd for Bistro Service (Waiter/Cooks)
$4 pp/pd for Cabin Services (Cabin Steward)
Tipping the Maitre D' is strictly at guest's discretion, based upon services rendered. For guests who wish to extend this gratuity in cash, an envelope will be available on the last evening of the cruise.
Tipping still applies regardless of the dining options selected, such as eating at the casual dining restaurant or utilizing room service.
Bar Waiters, Deck Stewards and Bell Boys - Certain personnel, as noted above, may be tipped as service is rendered. A 15% gratuity is automatically added to beverage purchases which the guest may adjust appropriate to the service received.
Note: Guests under two years of age are not required to extend gratuities.
NB: All monetary values mentioned above are in US$.
