Carnival cruise holidays are known for providing families with fun-filled escapes. With so many exciting activities onboard, we’ve picked five which we know the kids will love. From daring adventures in the skies to lovable character themed activities, there’s something for all ages to enjoy.
SkyRideAvailable Carnival Horizon and Carnival Vista
The first of its kind at sea, SkyRide stands tall above the ocean and is likened to riding a bike – but with a difference. The two-lane suspended course will take you around the deck in a pedal-powered go-mobile, high up in the air so you can see out into the ocean or give your friends below a wave. Enjoy a poodle along the course, taking in the vistas or workout your lower body as you race to the finish line, the choice is yours.
Seuss at SeaAvailable on all ships
Become immersed in the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss and watch as the characters and stories come alive onboard the Carnival Cruise Line. See Cats in Hats, Fish Red and Blue, and both kinds of Things – 1 and 2 as they join you on your holiday. Tuck into a feast of fun as you enjoy character breakfasts, parades, arts and crafts activities, and interactive storytimes.
WaterWorksAvailable on Carnival Glory, Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic, Carnival Paradise, Carnival Pride, Carnival Sunshine, and Carnival Vista
Be prepared to get soaked! WaterWorks is Carnival’s onboard waterpark and is the perfect place to play, cool off, and go wild. With different configurations on each ship, you’ll encounter a new experience from one Carnival cruise holiday to the next. Shoot down the Twister waterslide which is one of the wettest and fastest around and boasts hundreds of feet of spirals and turns from high up in the air, right down to the ground. Other splashingly good slides include DrainPipe which finishes with swirl and PowerDrencher, known for tipping large buckets of water over the unsuspecting beneath it. Compete with friends as you glide down the racer slides, Speedway Splash, featuring special lighting effects as you plunge to victory. WaterWorks is a whole load of fun for the young and young at heart.
Speedway Splash is on selected cruise ships.
Mini GolfAvailable on all ships
This fun-filled family activity will throw up a few surprises. Unlike your traditional golf course, you’ll find all sorts of obstacles to get around, like a treasure chest, a windmill and a cactus! Pro-golfers, novices, little ones, and big kids will love this novelty fairway which is exploding with colour and fun.
SkyCourseAvailable on Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic, Carnival Sunshine, and Carnival Visa
Are you up for the challenge? Climb sky high on a ropes course above the sea. Every bit thrilling as it is wonderful, balance and swing with the sea breeze in your air and marvel at the mesmerising views of the ocean. Navigate around the course, safely harnessed in so you can climb, swing, and balance without hesitation. There are two levels of difficulty, so you can make the activity tougher if you’re feeling rather brave!
