CARNIVAL BREEZE®

Star Rating 

On Carnival Breeze, fun-fan faves like SportSquare, and mouth-watering dining spots like Cucina del Capitano, are just the beginning of how this ship keeps the fun blazing

Speaking of blazing, enjoy the island atmosphere of the very cool RedFrog Rum Bar, or south-of-the-border taco goodness at BlueIguana Cantina. There’s always family fun in the air at Hasbro, The Game Show and ha-ha hilarity at the Punchliner Comedy Club. Don’t forget the ambiance of Guy’s Burger Joint — roadside-burger-shack style — featuring hot-off-the-grill burgers designed by celebrity chef Guy Fieri!

There are many fish in the sea, and Bonsai Sushi proves it. The steakhouse prides itself on premium cuts, cooked exactly the way you like ‘em… plus gourmet appetizers and wine pairings. And to go just a little less refined, stop by Pizza Pirate for a hot slice, the Carnival Deli for a true classic, or Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse to get a little messy with some signature — you guessed it — Guy Fieri BBQ. On this ship, you just can’t get enough Guy!

Carnival Breeze has the whole family covered — with water, that is — with a 320-foot-long Twister Waterslide at Carnival WaterWorks. Just for the kids there’s supervised youth programs Camp Ocean®, Circle ‘C’ and Club O2. And for the bigger people, there’s time to be spent doing blissfully nothing at Serenity Adult Only Retreat… after pampering yourself at Cloud 9 Spa, of course.

Keep the fun going once the sun’s done for the day — have a truly moving experience at the multi-dimensional Thrill Theater, get your lips movin’ up on stage at Lip Sync Battle, dance in your seat at Playlist Productions… or if you prefer to do your dancing on a dance floor, check out Liquid Nightclub. Speaking of liquid, Alchemy Bar® serves up cocktail concoctions made with ingredients a little less ordinary and flavors a lot more interesting.

If you notice a bit of the outdoors inside, don’t adjust your view. Carnival Breeze’s staterooms — and many of the public spaces around the ship — feature a scintillating tropical décor and contemporary furnishings that’ll transport you straight to warm Caribbean bliss.

CARNIVAL DREAM®

Star Rating-

It’s one thing to be fun, but it’s another thing to be first. Carnival Dream was at the forefront of a recent wave of amazingly innovative and fun Carnival ships. As the genesis of the Dream class, Carnival Dream set the direction for the ships that followed in her footsteps — first Carnival Magic and then Carnival Breeze.

But back to Carnival Dream: the ship itself is a unique experience with the way-fun RedFrog Rum Bar and the very cool BlueIguana Tequila Bar. Get your appetite ready, because you’re gonna need it. Carnival Dream features two dual-level dining rooms, a gourmet steakhouse and dedicated sushi spot Bonsai Sushi. It’s also got a full menu of our latest and greatest casual spots for a bite: BlueIguana Cantina, Pizzeria del Capitano, Guy’s Burger Joint and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse. (That’s Guy as in Guy Fieri, by the way — so you know the food’s delish.)

Carnival Dream also features the borderline-magical Alchemy Bar® and Ocean Plaza, which combines tasty treats with perhaps even tastier entertainment. Entertainment options are all up and down the ship, and so is soaking-wet fun, from the heart-racing waterslide action at WaterWorks to the soul-soothing Thalassotherapy pool at the Cloud 9 Spa.

Despite its name, Carnival Dream is definitely a reality. Can’t believe it? Pinch yourself… and book your dream cruise today.

CARNIVAL RADIANCE®

Carnival Victory went into dry dock in 2018 and emerged in 2020 as the Carnival Radiance. The ship will house all of the classic Carnival onboard activities, with upgrades, of course. At the WaterWorks aqua park aboard Carnival Radiance, there are two water slides over 200 feet long. And with room for nearly 3,000 passengers, there will be something fun for everyone! While sailing on this beautiful ship, you’re guaranteed to not only have fun, but to be well-fed. Big Chicken, the fast casual eatery owned by Carnival’s Chief Fun Officer Shaquille O’Neal, opened its first location at sea on Carnival Radiance, along with favorite Carnival dining options like Guy’s Burger Joint, Cucina del Capitano, and the Seafood Shack.

CARNIVAL VISTA®

Star Rating 

We’ve built a lot of ships over the years, but for a truly unique experience at sea, you’ve gotta see Carnival Vista. Carnival Vista has a whole new relationship to the sea, and you get to experience this as you explore the Caribbean with all-new views.

It’s only natural that you’ll want to start outdoors, so let’s. You can’t help but have your eye caught by — wait, are those flying bicycles? Pretty much! SkyRide at SportSquare is a twin-track suspended bike course — strap in and race around for the win or just cruise for great views. At Havana Bar & Pool you’ll find an island retreat that evokes classic Cuban-style lounging with an emphasis on style… and on views, and on traditional cocktails! Carnival WaterWorks is packed to the gills with wet ways to get-a-splashin’, including Kaleid-O-Slide which adds funky light and color effects to the usual “speed-n-splash” story. If you can’t get enough Guy Fieri, we invite you to try at Guy’s Burger Joint and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse. Rounding out this ship’s sunlight highlights is Serenity Adult-Only Retreat, the low-key grown-up spot that’s more lounging and hot tubs than action and adventure. (But Serenity’s complimentary chopped salad station gets our inner grown-up excited!)

Indoors, things are every bit as cool. Take RedFrog Pub & Brewery for example — yes, you read right, the latest incarnation of our Caribbean-cool pub has a fully-functional onboard brewery that produces exclusive craft beers you can enjoy just feet from the brewing kettle. If you do seafood, you’ll want to direct your appetite to Bonsai Sushi or the seaside Seafood Shack, while JiJi Asian kitchen and Cucina del Capitano are prepared to satisfy cuisine-specific cravings. Of course Carnival Vista features a Dr. Seuss Bookville and youth activities for all kinds of kids (the smallers, the tallers and the in-betweens). On the stateroom side, Carnival Vista adds two new types of rooms to the mix: Family Harbor is a special area reserved for families and features a private lounge. All Havana staterooms and suites are located just off the Havana Bar & Pool and feature a unique tropical décor, while Havana Cabanas add a patio with hammock chair!

One last thing you should know: on Carnival Vista more onboard places than ever before span the indoors and outdoors — so whether you set the thermostat to “cool-and-crisp” or “sea-breezy perfection” you’ll enjoy your kind of Caribbean comfort on Carnival Vista.
