Cruising aboard Carnival Spirit will elevate your holiday at sea, to that unforgettable trip you will be longing to relive. You’ll be on a ship that’s nearly the length of three footy fields and 12 decks tall of things to do, see, taste and try. Whether you’re after an action-packed holiday or just want to relax and unwind, you can create the type of cruise holiday you want. There’s heaps of fun on offer and something for everyone; little ones, big ones and the whole family. The largest waterpark at sea in Australia, mini-golf, two-deck fitness centre, jogging track and sports court, Serenity area (adults-only), day spa and pools and spas. Keep the kids entertained with three different age-appropriate youth programs, giving them plenty of choice on activities and the opportunity to make new friends. You’ll be spoilt for choice no matter what your passion. If you’re a foodie, Carnival Spirit has tons of dining options – with Fat Jimmy’s C-Side BBQ, Freshie’s Corner, Nouveau, where for a small cover charge you can dine in style, 24 hour Pizza and Ice-Cream and much, much more. If it’s night-time fun that you’re looking for then you won’t be disappointed. Carnival Spirit has more than 6 bars and lounges to choose from featuring all kinds of games, shows and entertainment. If you like a flutter on the pokies there’s also a casino. Quite simply, you can pick and choose to create your own memorable holiday whilst onboard.

LIDO MARKETPLACE

Featuring a variety of casual dining options like Chef’s Choice, Salad Bar, Carnival Deli and more, the Lido Restaurant has something — or more likely, at least a few ‘somethings’ — to satisfy your craving. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and food options for everyone, you can enjoy your personal favourites, while dining in the company of family and friends. It’s also where you can find our Pizza Pirate pizza station and Swirls ice cream spots… both open 24 hours a day, which ought to be enough for anybody.

DINING ROOM

The Carnival Cruise Empire dining room offers an elegant and relaxing setting in which to enjoy a full three course menu! It’s an experience that’s filling, but never stuffy — you’re just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order dessert. Dessert’s included — along with the rest of your meal, by the way — in your fare. But don’t skip straight to dessert, because the main course is the main attraction; drop in daily and enjoy a rotating menu of delectable favourites, including steak, seafood and prime rib.

 

SEADAY BRUNCH

Forget what “they” say — the most important meal of the day is brunch. Slumberers can sleep in and still enjoy breakfast favourites, while early-risers get a head-start on lunch. And Seaday Brunch brings everybody’s favourite mid-morning meal to your Carnival cruise, and does it right. You’ll enjoy special french toast, loaded mac-n-cheese… and yes, more ways to cook eggs than we even thought was possible. Chow down and fuel up — you’ve got lots of exploring to do, across the ship, for the rest of the day.

KIDS’ MENUS

Our kids’ menus, available at most onboard dining venues, feature foods that are delicious enough — and fun enough — to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. We’ve got all the familiar options they love at home, like spaghetti and meatballs, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, mac-n-cheese, peanut butter and jam sandwiches and — yes mum — fresh fruit and veggies. They should save room for dessert, though, because with sweet stuff like banana splits and chocolate brownies, your young’uns are going to be pretty excited. There’s even 24-hour pizza and ice cream… but these are subject to bed-time, of course.

SWIRLS

Got room for dessert? Sure you do! Swirls ice cream lets you enjoy the sweeter side of brain freeze with a treat that’ll have you smiling from ear to ear. Choose from chocolate, vanilla or strawberry… or make your own mix swirled as high as you can balance it. Open on Lido deck 24/7, our soft-serve ice cream and frozen yoghurt is a great way to beat the heat all day, or the perfect night-time treat after a long evening of fun.

THE CHEF’S TABLE

Treat your taste buds to the experience of a lifetime, culminating in a sumptuous multicourse dinner hosted by one of our master chefs. Your VIP experience starts with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres for a select group of 12, followed by a tour to see the galley in operation. The evening concludes with a mind-blowing full-service dinner of amazing appetisers, entrees and desserts not found on our regular dining menus.

Tip: Reserve early because this once-in-a-lifetime experience has limited seating. Reservations can be made at the ship’s Nouveau Restaurant.

Alternatively you can book a space at the Chef’s Table before you depart for your cruise by emailing Carnival Spirit or Carnival Splendor and providing your sailing date, booking number, your name, and the names of those attending.

NOUVEAU RESTAURANT

Enjoy the finest aged beef, cut, weighed and char-grilled to your exact specifications. In addition to mouth-watering steaks, a variety of other delectable main courses — like double-cut lamb chops, lobster tail and grilled fish fillet — are available.

The intimate atmosphere and extensive menu includes 17 gourmet entrées, salads, soups and side dishes. These do more than delight; they complement the season’s freshest produce and the best wine lists, and are handpicked by our chefs to perfectly match the wide-ranging cuisine.

COFFEE BAR

Why not treat yourself to a latté, macchiato, cappuccino or whichever coffee takes your fancy, as our onboard baristas, professionally trained in Aussie coffee brewing techniques, serve up your favourites. Selections of teas are also available; savour the aroma and have a delicious homemade pastry on the side or, for an even sweeter option, stop by for a milkshake, slice of cake or biscuit.

GUY’S BURGER JOINT

We went looking for someone to help us grill up the best burgers at sea, and we found just the guy. Carnival has teamed up with best-selling American author, restaurateur and Food Network personality Guy Fieri, to bring all the authentic appeal of a roadside burger shack to Guy’s Burger Joint, the cool poolside spot for hot burgers and hand-cut fries. Try a fresh-off-the-grill burger Guy’s way, or take it off-road to our toppings bar and truly make it your own.

PIZZA PIRATE

Tossing dough is an age-old art passed down the generations. Lucky for you, someone passed us the secret to the perfect pizza. While aboard, this is the place that will shiver your timbers and warm you to the bone, 24 hours a day, with a Margherita, Funghi, Hawaiian, Pepperoni or Quattro Formaggi pizza. Savvy? Then it’s the pirate’s life for you!

 

BONSAI SUSHI

Check out Bonsai Sushi, the next generation onboard seafood-and-soy-sauce spot. Dine amidst expertly-pruned bonsai trees while enjoying sit-down service and an affordable menu of delectable catches… plus soups, sides, sakés and desserts. So the next time you’re taking an onboard stroll, stop at Bonsai Sushi for a roll, a box or maybe a whole ship — it feeds two, and keeps them satisfied.

BLUEIGUANA CANTINA

Nobody knows Mexican dining like a blue iguana. Well, our blue iguana, at least. That’s why it should come as no surprise that the BlueIguana Cantina features freshly made tacos and burritos stuffed specially for your enjoyment. Throw our homemade tortillas and salsa into the mix, and you have a casual dining experience that will make you say “mmmm” (which is actually Iguanese for “more, please”).

 

THE PUNCHLINER COMEDY CLUB

There’s chuckle-funny, then there’s laughing-so-hard-you-can-barely-breathe funny. To take our Punchliner Comedy Club talent way over the top, we’ve teamed up with renowned Aussie comedians who are certain to take you to the point of mirthful hysterics. From physical tom-foolery, through sharp one-liners to blood-vessel-busting bardiness, the Punchliner Comedy Club is the home of hilarity.

CARNIVAL WATERWORKS™

Wanna splish — and splash — the day away? Head on over to Carnival WaterWorks™, our onboard waterpark. First up, there’s Carnival’sTwister 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.

PLAYLIST PRODUCTIONS

When was the last time you got up and danced… at the theater? Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and puts them live on stage, transforming them into full blown musical productions featuring pro singers and dancers rocking the house.

REDFROG RUM BAR

Guests have told us we hit on something special with the cool Caribbean chill of the RedFrog Pub. We’ve taken the best parts and brought them poolside with the RedFrog Rum Bar, where the frog keeps the fun hopping day and night with all the island flava you know and love. Join the party at this poolside bar featuring a great selection of frog-approved Caribbean rum-based concoctions available by the glass or pitcher, plus plenty of Carnival’s signature private-label draft beer, ThirstyFrog Summer Ale.

REDFROG PUB

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 Caribbean Island-inspired pub. Sample tropical fare, dominate at the foosball table, enjoy some sweet tunes and sip our tasty signature private-label craft beer; Thirsty Frog Summer Ale. So kick back and feel the island vibe come to life. You’ll be a local here before you know it.

PIANO BAR

Play it again, Sam. Or Diana. Or whatever your name is. Because this is the bar where you call the shots – and the songs. Pull up a seat, order your favourite cocktail, and let your friendly piano player know which songs you’d like to hear. Then join the sing-along for a hand-clapping, foot-tapping, finger-snapping good time. Don’t feel like flexing your vocal cords? No worries. Shy songbirds are welcome here, too. And since it’s open from early evening to late at night, it’s the perfect spot for a before-dinner drink or singing ’til the wee hours of the evening.

MEN’S SERVICES

Why let the ladies have all the fun to themselves at the spa? Razor-close barbershop-style shaves add a touch of manliness to the spa experience , and speaking of the barber, a cruise is a great time to rock a whole new hairstyle, a quick grey-hair darkening, or even just a fresh trim. And why not go for a little extra relaxation with a massage or even a facial while you’re at it?

JOGGING TRACK

Jogging may not immediately come to mind when you think of things to do at sea, but it probably should. You don’t have to walk on water, you just have to get on a Carnival cruise. After all, if you’re going to jog, you’d be hard-pressed to find a place to do it with a more scenic view, or a more refreshing breeze — both of these are available in abundance when you go for an open-air jog on the upper-deck. Jogging tracks are available on all Carnival ships, and are even padded for long-distance comfort.

HAIR & BEAUTY SALON

A trip to the salon is an opportunity to relax, to chat with others, to focus on you. Even though you’re on holidays, you won’t have to settle for anything less than the salon style you’re used to back on land. And these good looks go beyond the usual — we even offer services like teeth whitening… great for taking those ‘I’m on holidays and I’m looking great!’ selfies to the next level.

FACIAL TREATMENTS

Your face is the first thing the world sees, and while a nice smile can make a world of difference, one of the best ways to put a smile on your face is with a nice, refreshing facial. Of course, there’s more to it than just feeling great… post-facial, your rejuvenated skin will also be looking its best, so there’s definitely substance behind the good looks you’ll be catching glimpses of in all the mirrors you pass. Whichever facial option you go for — and our onboard spa offers a few — you’ll be treated to a luxuriously enhancing experience.

ACUPUNCTURE

Lots of pins in your body — who would want that? Lots of people, clearly — acupuncture is performed all around the world, and has been used for all manner of ailments for thousands of years. Whether you’re looking to pinpoint a specific health concern or just searching for a different way to relax, our onboard, licensed acupuncturist’s table is a great place to do it. (Some common ailments that draw people to the acupuncturist? Back pain, arthritis, digestive disorders and more.)

FITNESS CENTRE

We have some bad news for you — your ship has a gym. In other words, there’s no excuse for leaving your fitness routine back on land. That’s great news, however, for your body, which will definitely benefit from all the extra energy that a rejuvenating cruise is sure to generate. And let’s not forget the extra time you’ll have, since you won’t be waking up and spending most of the day at the office or anything like that. If those were some of your go-to excuses, we’re sorry, but we all know this is important. Why not treat yourself to some of our fitness classes — you might even have a little fun while you do something great for yourself!

MASSAGE

When you first join us onboard, don’t worry if you can still feel the stress of work, and the worries of the real world – they won’t last long once you’ve treated yourself to our expert masseuses at Spa Carnival™. Select from different indulgent experiences featuring seaweed for detox, herbal poultice for energy, bamboo for deep tissue penetration and hot stones for — ahhh — for perfection. We know you’re all about feeling good, and so are these massages!

SPA CARNIVAL

When it comes to complete relaxation from the inside out, nothing beats a trip to the spa. From the minute you step inside, the soothing ambiance begins to work its magic. Renew yourself with premium beauty and wellness therapies, like hot stone massages, aromatherapy or full-body wraps. This is your time to be spoiled, indulged and even beautified. Lie back, close your eyes, and feel the stress sail away as your body and mind experience total tranquility. (Oh yeah, and this feel-good stuff isn’t just for the ladies —blokes, there are plenty of treatments on our menu for you too.)

CARNIVAL WATERWORKS™

Wanna splish — and splash — the day away? Head on over to Carnival WaterWorks™, our onboard waterpark. First up, there’s Carnival’sTwister 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.

HASBRO, THE GAME SHOW

You’ve played Connect 4, but have you ever played giant versions of them onstage in a competition that puts your gaming skills to the test? You’ll have your chance when you take part in Hasbro, The Game Show. From SORRY! SLIDERS to CONNECT 4 BASKETBALL, OPERATION SAM DUNK and SIMON FLASH, you can team up with your friends and family to win great prizes, all in front of a live audience. Be sure to check your daily onboard itinerary for show times so you don’t miss out on the action … or the prizes. CONNECT 4, YAHTZEE, SORRY!, OPERATION and SIMON are all trademarks of Hasbro and are used with permission. ©2017 Hasbro. All Rights Reserved.

SEUSS AT SEA

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 memorise, 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 all-new, 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 and more, featuring their favourite Dr. Seuss characters. Seuss at Sea truly brings your child’s favourite books to life.

MINI GOLF

Ah, imagine a perfect day out on the links, the golfer’s zen of the ball, the hole and nothing in between but a well-manicured fairway… plus one cactus, a treasure chest… and wait, is that a windmill in the way? Just who designed this course anyway? Whoever it was, they had one thing in mind — maximum fun for mini-golfers, big and small! That’s precisely why you’ll find a course on every Carnival ship, where you can hit the holes and take in everything you’d expect, like the sights and the sounds… plus the seagulls.

CHERRY ON TOP

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 lolly-and-more-store not only great for enjoying some of your confectionery favourites, but the place to pick up food and apparel gifts for that special someone, even if — admit it — that someone happens to be you!

ARTS AND CRAFTS

To kids, arts and crafts is a fun way to spend an afternoon. To a parent, on the other hand, it’s something much more. From their earliest finger-paintings, to macaroni art and beyond, the stuff they bring home is more than just stuff — it’s art — and every last scrap of it is nothing short of precious, the work of a master. Your Carnival cruise presents plenty of opportunities for your budding Picassos to express themselves, from paintings that will take pride of place on your fridge, to less traditional media like sand art, hand-decorated t-shirts, pirate treasures and beyond. You know, future living-room-museum pieces.

BUILD-A-BEAR WORKSHOP AT SEA

A Carnival cruise gives kids plenty of chances to make new friends… but never before quite like this. When kids visit the Build-A-Bear Workshop at Sea, they use their small hands and big creativity to bring a new stuffed friend to life. They can customise theirs from head to toe by choosing the clothing and accessories, and even give their new friend a voice and message of its own by integrating a customisable voice chip. The cuddly bears are just the beginning — these stuffed friends come in all shapes, like a monkey, sea turtle, dog, bunny… and the cutest shark imaginable. There’s even a bear with a special Carnival-exclusive design!

CAMP OCEAN

When families cruise Carnival, even the smallest fish in the pond have a big, awesome time. Okay, so it’s actually way more than just a pond — it’s Camp Ocean. At Camp Ocean, 2–11 year-olds stay busy, keep active and have fun as they enjoy all new ocean-themed activities and entertainment made for kids. We put campers into supervised, age-based groups and give each a cool marine-life label that’s sure to raise the sails on camaraderie at sea. The littlest little ones — ages 2 to 5 —join the Penguin colony and engage in activities like Musical Icebergs and Ocean Bingo… even learning a thing or two about buoyancy! The little-biggers, 6 to 8, are the way-cool Stingrays, who might be found enjoying Pirate Game Night, making sea salt art or even designing their own aquarium. The big fish are the Sharks — ages 9 to 11 — who really sink their teeth into playing Marine Life Trivia, creating a giant ocean mural, and scoring big with sea-themed volleyball or soccer. Our counselors, each with education or childcare experience, are there to make sure everyone in these small groups has an amazing time.

PIXELS

Since photos are a big part of how you and your crew will remember your cruise, you can rely on Carnival’s photo-pros to bring your fun side into focus — lighting and background, shutter speed and aperture know-how goes into every shot they take. You’ll find our pros all over the ship: when you’re gathered around the dining room table, as you step off the ship at your destination… and plenty of times in between. You’ll even find creative and fun backdrops around the ship that you can casually stop by and do a quick pose in front of!

DREAMS STUDIO

On the same ship with the waterslides and cocktails is actually a photographic oasis. Everybody looks their best, smiles their biggest smiles on holiday… and at Dreams Studio our professional photographers beautifully capture this side of individuals, couples, groups or families. We’ll lead you to the best photo spots on the ship, in our onboard photo studio… or even ashore in some picturesque destinations. You’ll end up with amazing prints or high-quality digital files, custom photo-books, collages and large prints. Tip: Elegant Night on your cruise makes the perfect time to capture your all-dressed-up look in refined black & white portraits!

BEAUTY

A journey to new destinations is sure to give you a new outlook… so why not meet the experience with a new look? Treat yourself to cosmetics, fragrances and skincare items — up to 25% off retail prices. Located just steps from the heart of the ship, The Fun Shops have everything you need to pamper yourself, perfect your signature look or try out a new makeup trend with authentic top-name beauty products. Also keep an eye open for Travel Exclusives, extra-special deals on famous brands that you’ll only find on the ship. So whether oops! your favorite lipstick is in your other bag — or you’re just looking to try something new — stop in to The Fun Shops.

COOKING DEMONSTRATION

Learn to cook, Steakhouse-style from our team of chefs as they demonstrate the tricks of the trade. We take the joy of cooking and transform it into a delightful hour-long presentation of kitchen skill and ingenuity… where taste tests are always included. Tip: This fun-for-the-whole-family event fills up fast, so get there early.

ART AUCTIONS

If a room full of overly serious old men, many wearing monocles, paying top-dollar for priceless antique works of art is your perception of an “art auction”, then think again! Unlike a stodgy auction house, your vacation features a series of auction events designed to turn fine art into fine fun. From the rapid-fire ‘Lightning’ action to the cheap thrills of the ‘under $500’ event, there are plenty of chances to try your hand at bringing home something great and have a blast doing it. Unlike land auctions, we even hold fun interactive events like the “Guess the Price” competition. That said, our onboard auctions aren’t entirely without fancy trimmings — after all, what’s an auction without free-flowing champagne?

ART EXHIBITIONS

If you have an eye for art and fancy a cultural component to your cruise, we have that covered with a series of events celebrating some exceptional works. Take part in an art-themed battle of the sexes or check out showcases highlighting different artists. You can’t get any closer to great art… without buying it.

ART SEMINARS

Go from ‘normal holidaymaker to ‘globe trotting art expert’ in one cruise flat — Carnival offers such a variety of educational and enlightening seminars with an ‘Art 101’ lecture series designed to be your entrance into this vibrant world. We’ll go from the earliest cave paintings to the modern masters — with stops at topics like the Renaissance, Baroque, Surrealism and Pop Art — and cover both theory and technique. You’ll walk away with a spectrum of knowledge to use at your next art auction… or to elevate your cocktail party chatter.

LIBRARY

With wall-to-wall activities on offer, most people wouldn’t consider their cruise as a great time to read a book, but you’ll find the bibliophilic faithful stretched out on deck chairs, enjoying the sun, sea breeze… and a page-turner. Forgot to bring a book? E-reader battery just died? Every Carnival ship features an onboard library stocked with the good stuff. For the silent types, it’s a great place to read, but if the roar of the ocean is more your soundtrack, the library is a great place to find a good read to devour, al fresco.
