Carnival Pride charms, alright — it’s a treat for your eyes, your taste buds… and of course, your fun buds. Invite them all to come enjoy the vacation that this ship is proud to offer.
Carnival Pride invites you to dine refined, from the zen-like simplicity of Bonsai Sushi to the art deco ocean liner inspiration of the Normandie Restaurant, not to mention the Renaissance-era allure of David’s Steakhouse. And of course there’s real, delectable substance under all that style. But for something a little more casual, loosen your tie… or maybe just throw it away and grab a main course (and fries) from our main man Guy Fieri, at Guy’s Burger Joint. The Mexican heat’s optional at BlueIguana Cantina, but make your next stop Cherry on Top — our candy-and-more store — where everything’s sweet.
You’ll find yourself with room to move at the Beauties Dance Club, and a hard time sitting still at Playlist Productions. All around this cruise ship you’ll discover even more ways to stay cool, like an adult-only pool at Serenity, a fun-only midship pool featuring a retractable roof, plus Carnival Pride’s splashy onboard waterpark, Carnival WaterWorks.
Alongside the pool is the big-screen, big-fun Carnival Seaside Theater, while Seuss at Sea is a good time for kids who love a good rhyme. (We do!) Camp Ocean, Circle “C” and Club O2 prove that we’ve got hotspots for cool kids of all ages… while at Hasbro, The Game Show, kids and adults join forces in a larger-than-life game show showdown! And speaking of showdowns, every cruise features a series of them at Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, the fierce live show that kindly requests you bring your best moves and show us what you’ve got, up on stage.
Comedy clubs on land… well, it’s kinda funny. Nobody likes paying cover charges, and you know that two-drink minimum? They’ve gotta be joking! You won’t find either of these at The Punchliner Comedy Club™ aboard your Carnival cruise. Up on stage you will find some real pros who know how to wedge a little laughter into anyone’s evening. You can count on these comedians to not hold back either. Since some of them get up and say exactly what’s on their mind, we also schedule family-friendly performances, perfect for all ages… so the only red faces in the audience are from laughing a little too hard.
Tip: We’ll say it again — The Punchliner Comedy Club features some shows that are family-friendly and some adult-only. You can choose which ones you attend! To help plan your evening, check the Carnival Hub App or Fun Times— it’s delivered daily to your stateroom.
Wanna splish — and splash — the day away? Head on over to WaterWorks™, Carnival’s onboard waterpark. First up, there’s the Twister Waterslide™, hundreds of feet of spiraling awesomeness that starts you off high in the air and gets you down low with one of the fastest, wettest rides you’ll find anywhere. Select ships have side-by-side racing slides, which make serious competition seriously fun. Wear your speed suit for Speedway Splash, which features hundreds of feet of racing action, plus special lighting effects you’ll experience on the road to victory. DrainPipe™ ends with one major swirl of a finish, while PowerDrencher™ takes soaking seriously — imagine the biggest bucket of water you’ve ever seen, raining down on you from above. And this isn’t just kids’ stuff — the young at heart are encouraged to zoom and splash around too! (WaterWorks configurations vary by ship.)
There’s a place in our heart for heroes… and now there’s a spot to salute them! We’re talking about the military folks you can count on to take a mission that matters and get it done. You’ll find proof of our commitment to them on board at Heroes Tribute™ Bar & Lounge, an ongoing recognition of sacrifices made by Armed Services personnel and their families. By the way… it’s also a friendly place to grab a drink! Everybody’s welcome at this bar, so get together and raise a glass to defenders of freedom.
Tip: The glass is important! Bring home an exclusive souvenir glass and we’ll donate $1 of your purchase to Operation Homefront. (This amazing organization provides military families with rent-free housing, helping get wounded veterans and their loved ones back on their feet.)
The little ones can enjoy the best parts of summer camp, year-round aboard their Carnival cruise. At Camp Ocean kids will have a blast in supervised, age-based groups and give each a cool marine-life label: Penguins (2 to 5 years), Stingrays (6 to 8 years) and Sharks (9 to 11 years). Together with their group they’ll enjoy tons of fun-filled, age-appropriate activities like arts and crafts, songs, games, toys, dancing, movies and video games. When it’s mealtime, kids eat together and get their own menus with back-on-land faves like mac & cheese, chicken nuggets and more. The whole time, our experienced counselors will be there to make sure everyone in these small groups has an amazing time. Plus, when the sun goes down it’s Night Owls time — fees apply, but kids get to stay up late having fun while their parents also enjoy themselves well into the night.
From the whimsical and always wonderful world of Dr. Seuss® comes Cats in Hats, Fish Red and Blue, and both kinds of Things — 1 and 2. And they’re all coming to a Carnival cruise near you as the world of Dr. Seuss leaps off the page and onto Seuss at Sea™.
Dr. Seuss’s timeless stories are the kind kids memorize, and this is the kind of cruise you’ll remember for a lifetime. The whole family will still enjoy all the classic Carnival activities, but the littlest ones, and their families, will also enjoy an extra-special experience as the fantastical world of Dr. Seuss comes to life around them.
Enjoy a special onboard character parade, interactive story time, arts & crafts activities, character breakfast featuring their favorite Dr. Seuss friends and more. Seuss at Sea truly brings your child’s favorite books to life.
A cruise is the perfect time to treat yourself to something sweet, and Cherry On Top™ happens to be the perfect place. You’ll find this well-stocked candy-and-more-store not only great for enjoying some of your confectionery favorites, but the place to pick up food and apparel gifts for that special someone, even if — admit it — that someone happens to be you!
Scream for the cool stuff? Visit the ice cream counter at the Cherry On Top shops aboard Carnival Vista® and Carnival Horizon® for a signature ice cream creation, or build your own with tons of mix-ins and topping options. And if you get the urge to eat ice cream with your hands, we won’t judge… we’ll just suggest one of our ice cream cookie sandwiches. We’ll build you one by hand, and stuff it full of whatever ice cream and toppings you scream for.
No magic spells are required to enjoy a cocktail creation at Alchemy Bar®, our unique vintage-themed cocktail “pharmacy” — all you need is a willingness to be surprised, to try something new. We’ve flipped through dusty old texts to uncover enticing combinations: select spirits, fresh juices, infused syrups, spices… and other tantalizing secrets performed before your very eyes by the true mix-masters: our bartenders. Choose a remedy from the menu, or let us prescribe you a custom elixir just for you, with or without alcohol.
Tip: Now you can sip without drinking! Wait, what? Alchemy Bar features seven classic cocktails hand-made with Lyre’s non-alcoholic spirits — all the goodness is in the mix, with none of the alcohol.
Sometimes you just need to get away… from all that vacation. We know — sitting at home, it’s hard to imagine that, but trust us — it’s really, really nice to have a place to unwind from the day’s excitement. Escape to a world designed, from the ground up, for relaxation. Cloud 9 Spa™ staff are masters (or, maybe more like artists) trained in the craft of simply helping you chill. What’s their secret? Massages, facials, body wraps, thermal suites and more — plus, on certain ships, the amazing Hydrotherapy Pool — these are the tools of the trade. And the trade is ultimate relaxation.
Everyone has those perfect songs that never fail to get them moving. Playlist Productions™ brings lists like yours to life! Your favorites become full-blown musical productions featuring singers and dancers bringing down the house. Shows vary by ship, but there’s a playlist for every music lover. Need a few examples? How about the spicy sounds of Amor Cubano™, the movie-magic soundtrack of FLICK™, or Vintage Pop™ with its 20s-jazz-meets-modern-hits? Release your inner rock-n-roll patriot during America Rocks™! Enter the center of groove with the passionate Heart of Soul™. Feel the arena-shaking sounds of Epic Rock™, the piano-pounding sounds of 88 Keys™, the totally bad-meaning-good 80s Pop to the Max™, plus the funky, sophisticated… and not-at-all exclusive Studio VIP™, where everyone’s welcome to come and get down!
Get into an island state of mind before you even set foot on one. RedFrog® Pub is our laid-back, no-worries, oh-so-lively Key West-inspired pub. Sample Caribbean fare, dominate at the foosball table, enjoy some sweet tunes from live musicians and sip our tasty signature private-label brew, ThirstyFrog® Red. So kick back and feel the island vibe come to life. You’ll be a local here before you know it.
