Departing from Miami
October 23, 2021
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.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
Fulfill your private island fantasy on Carnival cruises to Half Moon Cay. Sway in the sweet Bahamian breezes to the rhythms of calypso on this tropical island paradise. Cruises to Half Moon Cay deliver you to an idyllic sun-drenched island hideaway where you can play in the turquoise seas, ride horseback on powdery white sand, and encounter silky-smooth stingrays. If your wish list includes a cruise to private island serenity — and it should — Half Moon Cay is a must!
Grand Turk, of the Turks & Caicos islands, may be small but it’s packed with scenic punch and historic charm. Carnival cruises to Grand Turk deliver you to this enchanted island outpost dotted with old windmills, grassy trails and picture-perfect beaches. Discover an oasis of green set in aquamarine seas, ringed by a pristine coral reef and the steep wall of the continental shelf.
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.
Splash and play your way across this sparkling corner of the Caribbean, or simply relax on a sun-baked beach on Aruba. The locals call it the “happy island,” and they prove it — Aruba cheerily welcomes visitors to picture-perfect strips of beach, swaths of exotic blooms, and some of the Caribbean’s top shopping and nightlife locales. Celebrate the year-round Caribbean spirit, or simply unwind to the island’s bewitching and relaxing tempo. It’s easy to find your own tropical beat when you cruise Aruba-style.
Bonaire is an island nation in the Southern Caribbean that was twice “discovered” — once by the Spanish and once by the Dutch — and was until recently part of the Netherlands Antilles. Its far-flung history may be all over the map… but you’ll find the island itself located just right. Also just right is the climate — the annual average is 81.5° F — so you’ll have plenty of reasons to spend time outdoors. When in the water, diving and snorkeling happen to be some of the best ways to see the reef surrounding the island… but they’re also great for cooling off.
Fun Day at Sea
While aboard the Carnival Freedom, take time to visit the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat. The world you'll find yourself in is one of peace, sea breezes and tranquility. It's the place to reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.
And, don't forget: BINGO!
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!
