Carnival Cruise Line offers a wonderful wedding getaway with a number of activities that will be sure to be enjoyed by the happy couple.
Carnival Cruise Line Size and Departure Points
Carnival Cruise Lines, which offers more than 20 different ships, is owned by Carnival Corporation. In addition to owning Carnival Cruise Lines, the company owns Cunard Cruises and Holland American Cruises. All together, the company oversees 70 different ships. With that kind of expertise and experience going into the planning of your honeymoon cruise, you can be sure your trip with Carnival Cruise Lines will be one to be remembered. The carnival atmosphere, however, sets Carnival Cruise Lines apart from its sister companies for those couples looking to have a fun and entertaining cruise.
Since Carnival Cruise Lines has so many ships, you can easily find one of their ports at almost every departure point within the United States, including smaller ports such as in Mobile, Alabama. Carnival Cruise Lines ships can also be found at many international ports. Therefore, you can choose from a variety of vacation itineraries, including a Canada cruise, a Hawaii cruise, a Bahamas cruise, an Alaska cruise along the Inside Passage, a Mexico cruise through the Riviera, and a Mediterranean cruise. From three day getaways to twelve day journeys, you can make your Carnival Cruise as short or as long as you desire.
Activities On A Carnival Cruise Honeymoon
In addition to its numerous itineraries, Carnival Cruise Lines also provides a number of onboard activities to keep you and your sweetheart entertained. Every ship includes Vegas-style shows performed by talented dancers. The themes of these performances vary from night to night. You can also take in comedians, jugglers, and magicians while on board a Carnival Cruise. Or, put on your dancing shoes as live music, including rock-and-roll, country western, and calypso, is performed.
In keeping with its party like atmosphere, Carnival Cruise Lines also offers gambling to its passengers. An extensive casino can be found on each ship, providing video poker, slot machines and tables of roulette and blackjack. If you’re new to casino gambling, you can even attend one of the onboard training classes or you might prefer to stick with the bingo tournaments where you can win another cruise for a second honeymoon.
Of course, no cruise would be complete without the food! On Carnival Cruise Lines, you can enjoy gourmet cuisine at the main dining room. Or, take in a more relaxed meal at one of the cafes. You can also enjoy round the clock room service, which is included in your regular ticket cost, though you are restricted to cold items such as salads, sandwiches, and certain deserts.
After taking in all of those calories at the buffet or through room service, you can work them off at the extensive gym offered on each ship. Here, you will find bikes, treadmills, free weights, and elliptical machines. Larger ships also provide free aerobics and other specialty classes, such as Pilates and yoga for a small extra fee. After your workout, you can get pampered at the spa where you will enjoy massage treatments, body wraps, facials, hairstyling, and manicures. These extras do come at an additional fee, but are well worth it in order to achieve the full Carnival Cruise experience.
Carnival Cruise Lines is a great choice for the first time cruiser and the veteran. Filled with great activities coupled with a party-like atmosphere, you and your new spouse will certainly create memories to treasure.
