FUN Carnival ’s Guide to


DREAM BIG. A LITTLE BIGGER. BIGGER STILL. NOW, WELCOME ABOARD. You’re thinking about what to do for vacation and the usual suspects come to mind: beach vacations, theme parks and road trips. Well, if none of these ideas makes your heart beat faster, then consider it a sign. This is the year to do something different. Because nothing takes you further away from an ordinary vacation than a Carnival cruise. Think about it. No, don’t think about it. Imagine it. Feeling the stress melt away as you get a hot stone treatment. Playing nine holes of mini golf at 21 knots. Dining while being serenaded by an orchestra of waves. Scuba diving in the warm Caribbean waters. Panning for gold like the settlers did in Alaska. Strolling along cobblestone streets in Europe. Or maybe even doing some fancy footwork to a mariachi band in Mexico. We’re talking the kind of fun you write home about. Actually, you’ll probably be having so much fun, you won’t want to interrupt a single moment of it to write home. Sorry, Grandma. You see, the whole point of a vacation is to get away from everything ordinary for a while. And nothing does that better than a Carnival cruise. So come aboard, join us and have the kind of vacation you’ve only imagined.

DON’T BE ALARMED IF YOUR VOCABULARY IS QUICKLY REDUCED TO ‘‘OOHS’’ AND ‘‘AAHS.’’ You’re on a ship that’s about the length of three football fields and every square inch of it is packed with things to do/see/taste/try. So, welcome to your new home away from home. How about a tour? You’ll notice the mini-golf course, basketball court* and outdoor jogging track. Over there you’ll find our Spa Carnival and fitness center, ®

the primo destinations for aromatherapy massages and workouts with amazing ocean views. Meanwhile, families are deciding what to do first: catch a flick at Carnival’s Seaside Theatre or SM

splish-splash at Carnival’s Twister Waterslide . TM

Couples are sipping fruity umbrella drinks on the Lido deck by the pool and friends are relaxing in our adult only Serenity area.* SM

Our ships’ onboard cell phone service and Wi-Fi capability mean you can keep in touch with friends and family back home. They’ll love to hear you boast about all the fun you’re having. Heck, you may not want to leave the ship at all. But we hope you do, because we’ve planned all kinds of awesome things for you to do onshore too.

Dining

Hmmm, what’s for dinner tonight? Starter : New England Crab Cake or French Onion Soup? Main: Broiled Maine Lobster Tail or Tender Roast Prime Rib? Dessert : Grand Marnier SoufflÊ or Warm Chocolate Melting Cake?


GOOD TIMES. GREAT FRIENDS. AND, NO DOUBT, A FEW GREAT STORIES TO TELL TOMORROW MORNING. After a full day of fun, and with your stomach happy after all the dinner options, we can focus on making the rest of you feel just as good. Go on, listen to a pianist tickle the ivories. Belt out your favorite song during karaoke. Take over – and, yes, own – the dance floor. Court Lady Luck and see what you can win in our casino or just sit back and let someone else steal the show during one of our nightly main stage productions. Is your head spinning yet from all the options? Let’s break ’em down and see what’s up your alley. First, we have to mention our stage shows. Think big productions, lots of glitz and amazing performances. Our comedy shows are also a big hit. You like laughing ’til your sides hurt, right? Then there’s the casino. It’s open while the ship is at sea, so stop by and roll the dice at the craps table, double down at the blackjack table and show us your most convincing poker face with a round of Texas Hold’em. When you want to hit the lounges, we’ve got even more options. Sing along to your favorites in the piano bar. Or cozy up and listen to live jazz. Dance the night away in one of our clubs. Or enjoy a cold one while catching a game on a big flat-screen.

Well, on any of our 3 to 8 day itineraries, you can swim with dolphins, snorkel or just relax on the beach with a silly smile glued to your face and a fruity umbrella drink firmly in hand. Take an underwater motor scooter into the waters of St. Thomas and get up close to all kinds of aquatic life, or explore the beauty of Grand Turk on your own dune buggy. Stroll the shops of historic San Juan to find treasures aplenty and be dazzled by the charms of lovely half-French, half-Dutch St. Maarten. Or maybe you’re more of an explorer type. Take a high-speed airboat ride in Belize or ride a Jamaican bobsled through the lush jungles of Ocho Rios. Spoil yourself on the unspoiled Isla Roatan, or hang out with turtle

Go for an outback adventure in Curaçao and learn why the phrase “island paradise” was born in beautiful Aruba. Or say “Yeah, mon” to The Bahamas and go bottom fishing from a 47-foot boat in Freeport. Saddle up and go horseback riding by land and sea on Half Moon Cay. Or snorkel and gaze at tropical fish, each more colorful than the last, in Nassau. And did we mention Bermuda?
