If you've ever caught a sunrise or sunset at sea, you know that they're the most beautiful kind. The sun has set on Carnival Destiny, a legendary, record-setting ship from the day she debuted.
Everything the sunlight touches on Carnival Sunshine has been doused with an extra dose of fun, and there's plenty atop this ship, where you can spend your days being kissed by the warm rays of the sun. There's the biggest Serenity area ever, featuring three decks, plenty of recliners, and even a waterfall. Carnival WaterWorks, the onboard water park, packs both favourites and awesome new slides, like the slick Speedway Splash. There's also SportSquare, where you can let your inner champion run free (around the jogging track), traverse SkyCourse high up above, or even engage in a little one-on-one, from ping pong to foosball to giant chess. Step out of the sun and try out some shade (and it's some pretty cool shade, at that). The first thing you'll see is the Sunshine Atrium, let's just say first impressions count. From there, check out dining options like Guy's Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse and new choice Ji Ji Asian Kitchen. All the latest Carnival bars are here: RedFrog Pub, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, EA SPORTS Bar and Alchemy Bar as well as the already-classic Havana Bar! You'll enjoy musical revues up on stage from Playlist Productions, while Hasbro, The Game Show gets cruisers like you up on stage, competing in larger-than-life family favourites come to life.

Carnival Cruises went looking for someone to help grill up the best burgers at sea. and they've found just the guy. Carnival has teamed up with best-selling author, restaurateur and Food Network personality Guy Fieri to bring all the appetising appeal of a roadside burger to Guy’s Burger Joint, the cool pool-side spot for hot burgers and hand-cut fries. Try a fresh-off-the-grill burger Guy’s way, or take it off-road to the toppings bar and truly make it your own.
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 overstuffed breakfast burritos, special French toast, loaded mac n’ cheese… and yes, more ways to cook eggs than you would 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.
Nobody knows Mexican dining like a blue iguana. Well, Carnival's blue iguana, at least. That’s why it should come as no surprise that the all-new BlueIguana Cantina features freshly made tacos and burritos stuffed specially for your enjoyment. Throw some home-made tortillas or chips and salsa into the mix, and you have a casual dining experience that will make you say “mmmm” (pretty sure that’s Iguanese for “more please”).

Italian-American dishes inspired by the recipes from their Italian captains’ and officers’ childhoods are served up family-style in a comfy, eclectic environment decorated to feel like an Italian country home. Vintage images of the captains and ships adorn the walls, and there’s even a Captain’s table where you just might see the man himself dine. While the casual pasta lunch is complimentary, the full-service dinner menu is offered at an extra charge.
So maybe you’ve had sushi on a cruise before, but you may have never had it like this. Introducing Bonsai Sushi, the next-generation onboard seafood-and-soy-sauce spot. Bonsai delivers a unique experience — dine amidst expertly-pruned bonsai trees while enjoying sit-down service and an affordable menu of delectable catches. There's also soups, sides, sakes and desserts. Stop in for a roll, a box or maybe a whole ship — it feeds two, and should keep them both satisfied.
A new dining spot inspired by a millennia-old society, Ji Ji Asian Kitchen serves up enticing dishes in an atmospheric space that brings not just good food, but good fortune — and perhaps a surprise or two — to the table. You’ll enjoy your meal among Asian prayer rolls and Mongolian-inspired fabrics that infuse northern-country style into this unique culinary experience. Food-wise, Ji Ji features complimentary stir-fry favorites for lunch, and in the evening a full-service, nominal-fee menu featuring a mix of exotic and familiar dishes designed to challenge and delight your senses.

Lido Deck is the centre of fun, Lido Marketplace is the centre of yum, which makes Pizzeria del Capitano — located right in the middle — good taste central. Carnival have taken the Italian mojo of Cucina del Capitano and extended its delicious deftness to pizza. Featuring piping hot slices right out of the oven, with your choice of toppings, Pizzeria del Capitano is the good kind of cheesy — the best reason to stop in for a taste of their hand-tossed specialities made with fresh mozzarella.
Treat your taste buds to the experience of a lifetime, culminating in a sumptuous multi-course dinner hosted by one of Carnival's 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 the regular dining menus. Reserve early because this once-in-a-lifetime experience has limited seating. It’s $75 per person and can be booked onboard through the ship’s guest information desk.
Maybe you take your coffee straight-up, or perhaps you prefer your pick-me-up with an upgrade. From the simply caffeinated to the simply sublime, nothing satisfies your coffee craving like JavaBlue Café, featuring fun twists on the hot and cold drinks you enjoy.

If the smell of breakfast cooking doesn’t help open your eyes, the fresh coffee will surely do the trick. Drag yourself out of bed and over to the Lido Restaurant where you’ll enjoy made-to-order omelettes, help yourself to fluffy stacks of pancakes or indulge in some sizzling sausage or bacon for a delicious and energising way to start the day.

They also bring to the table a full three courses in an experience that’s filling, but never stuffy — after all, you’re just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order dessert.

Whichever karaoke experience you choose, choose from hundreds of titles that span a wide variety of genres, from Motown, country and rock classics to today’s pop hits.

And don’t think that being in the middle of the sea means going without the usual comforts. There’s not only popcorn but blankets too.

The menu offers up Mexican favourites, including several brands of tequila and a slew of Mexican brews.

So kick back and feel the island vibe come to life. You’ll be a local here before you know it.
If you’re into sports, get yourself into the first-ever EA SPORTS Bar, the perfect place to catch a game and play a few, too. Grab a drink, order some snacks, watch your favourite games live on big flat-screen TVs, and keep up with real-time scores from across the sports world. And if you’re got that competitive spirit, you can really get right into the game with the latest video game titles from EA SPORTS. It’s free to play, so find a friend or three and get ready for action.
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 the 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 until the early hours of the morning.

The Carnival DJs are spinning today’s hottest hits and yesterday’s golden oldies, guaranteed to get you out of your seat and tapping your feet. Whether you’re doing the robot or the worm or just swaying to the music, you’ll want to dance until the sun rises. Or at least until last call. Carnival's themed parties are pretty fun as well.
Try to keep your excitement under control — at least for the time being — because you're gonna need a steady hand and a little luck to win at the casino prize games. There are cash prizes and awesome electronics at stake, so when you win, you win big. At that point, feel free to go a little crazy, jump up and down if that's your thing… because you and your steady hand are winners!
Or why not try your hand at Roulette, Blackjack, Slot Machines, Poker or some of the Casino Tournaments!

And if you’ve brought your laptop or other Wi-Fi enabled equipment onboard, feel free to log on with your personal device.
Looking for the perfect place to curl up for some quiet time? Look no further than the library. Sink into a cosy chair and let the hours drift by in this quiet onboard haven. It’s the perfect place to catch up on your reading, do a crossword, write a postcard to those back home, or stimulate your brain with a game of chess, checkers or Scrabble. If you forgot to bring a book, peruse the shelves for a title that interests you, or leave behind your just-finished paperback for another cruiser to enjoy.
A spot that's intriguing by night and friendly anytime, step into the Havana Bar and be transported to antebellum Cuba preserved today in old postcards, vintage literature… and classic delicacies. Take in great ocean views as you taste something authentically Cuban: café Cubano (that’s Cuban coffee!), handcrafted cocktails of Cuban origin (think daiquiris, mojitos and more), or mouth-wateringly fresh — and wallet-wateringly free — Cuban pastries. And this spot definitely doesn’t cool down when the sun goes down, with music and dancing keeping things hot well into the night.
Bingo buzz fills the air. You’ve got three cards in front of you, and you’re ready to play. What will tonight’s big game be? Postage stamp? Big X? Big T? Get ready to play some crazy-exciting, hoot-and-holler-if-you-win-big bingo. Cash prizes start at $100, and a jackpot game might add another zero to the pot. Other prizes include tour passes, gifts from onboard shops, spa services and more. So grab some bingo cards. That next B-6 could be the lucky call that lands you a whopping $2,000 jackpot or even a free cruise.
Kids never need an excuse to play, did you know that cognitive scientists — fully-grown adults without bedtimes — believe that play is essential to childhood development? At Carnival, we believe play is important to ALL ages, so onboard games are a huge part of the Carnival experience for all, young and old! From physical challenges to scavenger hunts to the very appropriate Battle of the Ages — the trivia game that actually pits kids against adults — Carnival puts the “all” in “fun for all.” (Not to mention the “fun.”)
The word trivia comes from “trivial,” which basically means ‘stuff that’s not important to know.’ Wait… unimportant?! Not if you’re planning on walking away with an unlimited supply of bragging rights… good for the rest of your cruise, not to mention when you get home. Don’t just show what you know — flaunt it. Here, being a “know-it-all” pays off.
You don’t need to be a mix-master to appreciate Alchemy – you just have to be up for trying something new. They’ve been stirring up some magic behind the scenes here at Carnival to produce a tasty series of all-new cocktails served at this unique vintage-themed cocktail “pharmacy.” Let their cocktail specialists prescribe you something from the bar, with both nonalcoholic and alcoholic elixirs to remedy what ails you. Or, create your own custom concoction from a variety of unique ingredients.
Winning big in the casino is big fun, and your next stop is celebrating with a top-shelf drink. Located right off the casino floor, the casino bar serves up your favourite cocktails, beer and wine, making this the perfect spot to celebrate with family, friends… and maybe even total strangers.
Experience the bold, psychedelic artwork of Peter Max. Or the vibrant energy of Romero Britto. You’ll have the chance to make one yours as you bid on your picks of hundreds of works. They’re all from the world's most popular contemporary artists, and all on your next Carnival cruise. Sip complimentary champagne, as you learn terms like intaglio. Expand your mind, as you encounter the fourth dimension through kinetic art. And of course, feel like a champion as the auctioneer declares you the winning bidder.

It wouldn’t be a dream vacation without a little "me time," right? That’s what Carnival had in mind when they created Serenity. It’s an adult only area available to guests 21 and older and features everything necessary to create the perfect tranquil "getaway within your getaway." Take advantage of complete bar service provided by attentive waiters. Chill in the sun, under one of the colourful, oversized umbrellas or in the separate shaded area.

Sometimes you just need to get away… from all that vacation. Seriously? Look, they know that sitting at home now, it’s hard for you to imagine wanting a vacation from your vacation, but trust us — it’s nice to have a place to unwind after the day’s excitement, to escape to a world designed from the ground up for relaxation. Cloud 9 Spa staff are masters — no, artists — trained in the craft of simply helping you chill. What’s their secret? Massages, facials, body wraps and more — these are the tools of the trade… and the trade is ultimate relaxation.
Who said you can’t run on water? Lace up your trainers and hit the deck for a run alongside the ocean at any time of day or night. Whether you feel like an early morning jog or a midnight run under the stars, the jogging track is always open and available for anyone looking to get their heart rate up over the great blue sea. If jogging isn’t your thing, consider this a top-notch place for a late-night stroll and some stargazing.
Carnival's yoga and Pilates classes will have you finding inner peace before you know it. With classes ranging from meditative stretching to more intensive, advanced levels, you’ll be sure to find the class that’s perfect for you. Check out your daily Fun Times to see which classes are being offered, then head on over to the Fitness Centre to participate.
Stay fit on your vacation with the help of Spa Carnival’s fully equipped fitness centre. Go for a jog, lift some weights, or use the state-of-the-art equipment to work up a sweat and get stronger. If it’s heart-pumping cardio classes you’re after, try indoor cycling, aerobics or circuit training. If you’re in more of a chill-out mood, try yoga or Pilates. Some of the classes have a small fee, but the fitness centre is always free and open all day.
After you’ve met with the experienced staff, you’ll be seeing your best self ever. Carnival's European-style salon is staffed with trained professionals who specialise in pampering you and bringing out all your best features.

Don’t forget to give your hands and feet some attention with a luxurious manicure and pedicure. You’ll be feeling brand-new in no time.
Have a swinging good time at the onboard mini-golf course. The greens are meticulously maintained and the view is pretty spectacular. Just remember your follow-through and no bogeys allowed. Best of all? No collared shirt is required! Oh, and playing is complimentary — just ask a staff member where to get clubs.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to fitness fun at Carnival's innovative outdoor recreation area. First, there’s the ropes — SkyCourse — where you can test your courage high above the sea. Then there’s the basketball court, which can also be used for soccer and volleyball, and the mini-golf course that lights up at night. Add to that a smorgasbord of pool, foosball and ping-pong tables, exercise bikes, elliptical machines, weight lifting equipment and punching bags, and this space is an action lover’s dream come true.
Wanna splish-splash — the day away? Head on over to WaterWorks, Carnival's very own onboard waterpark. First up, there’s the Twister Waterslide, designed to make other waterslides jealous. Twister is 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 feature side-by-side racing slides, which make serious competition seriously fun. You’ll want to wear your speed suit for Speedway Splash, which features hundreds of feet of racing action, plus special lighting effects you can experience while on the road to victory. DrainPipe ends your slide experience 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!
POOL DAY! Whether today's the day for a bit of a dip, a dash of splash or even some swimming — or just a serious poolside lounging session — your Carnival cruise has the just pool for you. In fact, pools are so important to a great cruise that they designed many of our ships to have two of them. At an aft pool you'll catch a breeze, plus a sea view featuring the ship's wake, while midship pools have an grand view of a different kind: the big screen's right there for the viewing. And no matter which you find yourself chilling in, the sunbeams are yours for the soaking.
Hey man, been to the spa lately? Well, why let the ladies have all the fun? You can actually enjoy a lot of the same stuff they do, plus manly services like razor-close barbershop-style shaves — pair one with a facial to really get a good thing going up top. 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 what guy wouldn’t go for a little extra relaxation with a massage? Exactly, bro.
Has anyone told you lately that you’re a beautiful person? They like you the way you are. Now, with that said, they want to let you know that your Carnival cruise contains a Medi-spa. They’re certainly not saying that you need them, but if you’ve been thinking about Botox or Dysport treatments, this spa is a good place to do them. Get them on vacation and they’ll always be administered by our onboard Medi-spa physician, a licensed medical doctor. These are non-surgical, anti-wrinkle procedures that show results in days, and last for months, so you can keep enjoying the benefits even after you’re back home.
When you’re on a Carnival cruise, there are plenty of places to bust out your moves when the mood strikes: in the dance club, at a deck party, in line for tandoori. Some people are born with all the right moves, but the rest of us need a little instruction to smooth the sharp edges off. That’s why you’ll find a host of free dance classes that sail along with you, helping you make the most of your cruise… which is perfect because a cruise is just the kind of vacation that puts you in the dancing mood!
Learn to cook, Steakhouse-style from the team of chefs as they demonstrate the tricks of the trade used to make those multi-course dinners everyone loves so much. Carnival 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.
Are you known back home as the cocktail captain; raising spirits, mixing it up and pouring it over ice… pleasing the palates of friends and family, alike? Come cruise and show them what you’ve got. The onboard competition may be stiff, but don’t let that shake you — stir up your signature concoction and make flavour worth a savour using spirits from all over the map. Throughout the cruise, everyone will be able to enjoy this winning cocktail at bars throughout the ship.
