Departing from New Orleans
October 27, 2024
Discover the unmistakable charm and flavor of the Crescent City. Before or after you cruise, take a little time to explore the French Quarter — romantic as ever, with restaurants serving up heaping helpings of savory Creole cuisine, and nightclubs and street musicians playing the kind of jazz that gets your toes tapping.
Whether you’re whooping it up on Bourbon Street, listening to the Jackson Square trumpeters, or hearing the ghosts whisper at eerie St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, spending extra time in the Big Easy is a must when cruising from New Orleans.
DAY TWO & THREE
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.
Prepare to let your hair down and kick back to seductive reggae rhythms on your cruise to Montego Bay. Boasting some of Jamaica’s finest beaches, shopping, restaurants and golf courses, “Mo Bay” (as it’s affectionately known) is a tropical live-wire. Are you ready to immerse yourself in the town’s festive energy? Shop, swim, and play in Mo Bay to your heart’s content — and sample Jamaica’s rich culture on excursions into the island’s breathtaking countryside. Whatever you’re into, we’ve got everybody covered on our cruises to Montego Bay.
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.
Cozumel is proof that Mexico can do ‘island flavor’ with the best of the Caribbean. Cozumel offers a huge variety of things to do, see, taste and explore. This island just happens to be perched atop a coral reef, which promises hours of snorkeling or scuba diving fun. Drift among star corals and sea fans on a Cozumel diving excursion or simply kick back on the beach beneath your own palm palapa as the turquoise waves roll in.
FUN DAY AT SEA
When Carnival went looking for someone to help grill up the best burgers at sea, they found just the guy. Carnival teamed up with best-selling 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.
