Carnival Cruise Line
General

In a nutshell... we're all about fun vacations at sea and ashore! A Carnival cruise features day and nighttime entertainment like stage shows, musical performances, deck parties, casinos and more. (Like what? Like waterslides!) We invite our guests to come as they are, and we make everyone feel right at home with comfy staterooms, attentive service, casual and elegant dining, plus a variety of bars and gathering places indoors and out. Guests enjoy this unique experience against the backdrop of some of the world's most beautiful seaports.

Our 27 ships operate 3- to 24-day voyages, departing from every coast in the U.S., as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and Barbados. While we're best known for Caribbean cruises, we sail to other exotic and amazing destinations like Mexico, Alaska, The Bahamas, Europe, Hawaii and the Far East. Additionally, Carnival Cruise Line Australia now has two ships, and offers cruises from Sydney and Brisbane to New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Repositioning cruises to the USA.

Carnival Cruise Line proudly supports important causes like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Ship
Carnival Spirit
Overview

Carnival Spirit's been away for a while, hanging out spreading the word of FUN to folks in Australia. Now the ship's coming back to the West, ready to begin some amazing voyages to Alaska or Hawaii - both great spots for unforgettable cruising.

Carnival Spirit is something of a vacation destination itself... on your way to Alaska or Hawaii, enjoy your meals in three-course style in the Empire Restaurant or Nouveau Steakhouse, or just go ahead and build a meal with as many courses as you like at the casual-style, variety-packed Lido Restaurant. Speaking of casual, the trio of RedFrog Pub, Guy's Burger Joint and BlueIguana Cantina each put their own delicious spins on flavor itself.

Playing it cool isn't hard at WaterWorks - after all, you're among waterslides like Green Thunder - plus you can always cool down, or warm up, with a dip in our domed swimming pool. The entire family will enjoy their time in the spotlight at Hasbro: The Game Show or Lip Sync Battle: Carnival. If you're a grown-up, get your outdoor time in while also taking it easy at the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. And if you're a kid... perfect! We have three kids-only youth spaces where you'll get to meet new friends and have an amazing time doing your kind of stuff.

Carnival Spirit is no stranger to amazing, exotic destinations... and hopes you won't be a stranger either!

Ports of Call
Seattle, Washington
City Seattle

Located in the midst of mountains and water, Seattle's scenery is truly a sight to see. Along with the alluring appearance of Seattle it also entails plenty of entertainment and attractions. If you're a sports fanatic, Seattle offers games by the Seattle Seahawks, Sonics, Angels or the Rainier's. If you acquire more of an artsy taste, Seattle also provides museums such as the Bellevue Art Museum, Frye Art Museum, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Asian Art Museum, and the Henry Art Gallery. For those of you who are more into Science and History, you'll be more interested in the Burke Museum, Museum of Flight, Museum of History and Industry, Pacific Science Center, Seattle Aquarium, etc. No matter what your preference includes, Seattle accommodates all.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
City San Lucas

Sail past Los Arcos, the soaring rock archway at the extreme southern tip of Baja California that guards Cabo's perfect harbor. This idyllic bay once sheltered treasure ships from the Orient, and pirate brigs bent on those treasures. Now Cabo caters to an international vacation set, and has a strong artistic tradition famous for its black-coral jewelry.

Puntarenas, Costa Rica
City Puntarenas

Panama Canal, Panama

Spend an unforgettable day cruising the Panama Canal, a fifty-one-mile waterway through the rainforest that is one of the world's engineering masterpieces. The ship glides down the canal with inches to spare, through locks that raise and lower it like a toy. Along the way it crosses enormous Gatun Lake, and the amazing Gaillard Cut, blasted out of a solid mountainside.

Cartagena, Colombia
City Cartagena

Charming Cartagena is one of the most fascinating towns in South America. The old city, almost completely surrounded by lagoons, bays and the Caribbean Sea, is still girded by its 17th-century fortifications. Once these guarded the gold and treasures of the New World, bound for Spain; now they shelter ornate churches and convents, the dramatic Palace of the Inquisition, and other historic gems.

New Orleans, Louisiana
City New Orleans

Unique in all the world, the lacy Creole look and carefree bon temps atmosphere of the Big Easy set it apart. Walk the balconied streets of the French Quarter to Audubon Park, sip chicory coffee and bite into a snowy beignet at Cafe du Monde, or recapture the antebellum gentility of Creole mansions and plantation homes in the surrounding parishes.
