Departing from Miami
November 10, 2023
Miami is known as the cruise capital of the world. But it’s more than just convenient — rev up for your cruise from Miami with the city’s nonstop action, from party-ready South Beach to the Mediterranean style of Coral Gables, plus spicy Little Havana, which hums to an island beat. Once you’ve experienced all the South Florida architectural beauty, energetic street life and sun-kissed beaches, you may want to extend your stay in the Magic City after your cruise returns.
Fun Day at Sea
BlueIguana Tequila Bar™ is the onboard spot to chill and enjoy a slushy tequila drink or an ice-cold Mexican cerveza. The menu offers up Mexican favorites, including several brands of tequila and a slew of Mexican brews. There’s a lineup of frozen concoctions, cocktails and margaritas served by the glass or by the pitcher, and even a special Mexican beer cocktail (yes, really). Where can you find this little slice of Mexican paradise? Next to the pool, of course. So stay cool and take in the bar’s vacation vibe while you kick back on your cruise – that’s what official bar mascot Blue the Iguana would tell you. For adult cruisers 21+ only. Additional costs apply.
Cruise to Grand Cayman, go barefoot in the sand and be oh-so-elegant... all in one day. Enjoy laid-back British civility in a sun-splashed Caribbean tropical locale on your Carnival Grand Cayman cruise. Don’t let the island’s scrubland terrain fool you — a spectacular marine paradise lies just offshore, where a living undersea wall tapers off dramatically into the ocean depths. When you get up close and personal with the resident stingrays and turtles, you’ll soon learn why beach-goers and nature lovers rank cruises to the Grand Cayman as some of the best in the Caribbean.

Cruise to Costa Rica to discover why the locals have been called the happiest people in the world. Costa Rica’s abundant ecotourism treasures await when you board your cruise to Limón. From here you can soar above rainforests, feel the mist from tumbling waterfalls, and swim in clear Caribbean seas. These make Limón, Costa Rica a top spot in the region for embarking on eco-adventures. When you cruise to Limón, don’t forget to check out the city itself, the source for millions of bananas that get shipped northward every year. Whether in the Caribbean waters or amongst nature on land, you’ll feel refreshed and invigorated by your cruise to Costa Rica.
Some see Colón as the gateway city to the Panama Canal, the engineering wonder linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Others know it as the second-largest duty-free port in all of the Caribbean, and a great base for exploring the canal and Panama’s nearby ecological treasures. On your Carnival cruise to Colón, you’ll see it from all sides — enjoy a side of shop-‘till-you-drop as you spy the brilliant plumage of a toucan in rainforest greenery.
Cartagena, Colombia’s fifth-largest city found its namesake in a town in Spain that’s over 2,000 years old. But cruises to Colombia take you to Cartagena, Jr. — only about 500 years young — where you’ll find a vibrant Colombian city with a range of neighborhoods like the bustling Downtown, the traditional Getsemaní, and even the waterfront Bocagrande… an entire cultural center on a walkable peninsula featuring beaches, shopping and nightlife galore. Put yourself at the center of all this action with your cruise to Cartagena.
Fun Day at Sea
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!
Have we mentioned Bingo? Well, let's mention it again: BINGO!
Fun Day at Sea
Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it's pretty much exactly the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat™. Look, you'll still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement… but you could easily forget, because when you’re at Serenity you could not be further from it all. The world you'll find yourself in is one of complete peace, sea breezes and, of course, a nearby bar. It's the place to get done the kind of stuff you just can't seem to do anywhere else — reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.
