Latest News

From December 2019, Carnival Cruises will have three ships calling Australia home! The Carnival Splendor will join the Carnival Spirit in year round cruises from Australia, whilst the Carnival Legend will continue to spend our summers in local waters and the northern hemisphere summers in Alaska.

Carnival’s newest ship, the Carnival Horizon, launched in April 2018 and will be completing a summer season cruising from New York, before she settles into her Floridian homeport offering departures from Miami. View all Carnival Horizon cruises.

Carnival Cruises in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific

Carnival Cruises operate with year-round itineraries in Australia and the South Pacific aboard three popular Fun Ships, with a wide range of departures from Sydney and from Melbourne.

HANDY TIP: When searching for South Pacific cruises, remember generally that 7-9 night Carnival cruises will take you to New Caledonia, 10-11 night Carnival cruises will likely combine New Caledonia with Vanuatu and you’ll need a minimum of 12 nights if you are looking to visit Fiji on your next Carnival cruise.

Cruises within Australia give you the opportunity to visit lively ports up and down Australia’s eastern coastline, including the gorgeous beach towns of Airlie Beach and Port Douglas in the north, or the bustling metropolises of Melbourne and Hobart in the south.  Sailings to New Zealand are much more infrequent, so get in quick! Carnival Spirit cruises to New Zealand operates once a year in January from Sydney, while Carnival Legend cruises to New Zealand cruises from Melbourne.

International Cruises

In Asia, Carnival Spirit is offering cruises between Sydney and Singapore in 2018 as she heads north for her next dry dock refurbishment. Departing in May, she will cruise Sydney to Singapore via Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand, returning in June from Singapore to Sydney stopping in Thailand and Indonesia. Alternatively experience the magic of an inaugural voyage onboard the Carnival Splendor as she arrives into Australia for the first time with a cruise from Singapore to Sydney departing 25 Nov 2019.

For Hawaii, Carnival Legend leaves Australian waters each April and makes her way from Sydney to Honolulu en route to spend her northern hemisphere summer season offering cruises exploring Alaska. In September of each year, she then returns via Hawaii to Sydney to spend our warmer months introducing Australians to the picturesque South Pacific.  These cruises to and from Hawaii via exquisite tropical Pacific islands are extremely popular and sell out early, so our strong advice is to book as soon as possible!

Carnival cruises also provide for an extensive range of cruises elsewhere throughout America, from the east coast to the west coast and Panama Canal in between.On the west coast, Carnival cruises depart from Los Angeles, Seattle, Honolulu and Vancouver.  Cruises from Los Angeles offer an extensive program of Mexican itineraries.  Choose from two, three and four night Baja Mexico cruises or longer six and seven night Mexico Riviera cruises.   Also available are a selection of cruises through Hawaii of eleven nights or more departing from Los Angeles, Honolulu or Vancouver.

Carnival knows how to cruise the Caribbean, with hundreds of itineraries operating yearly from all over the west coast of USA, the most popular departure ports being Miami and Fort Lauderdale and almost exclusive departures from certain ports including cruises from Galveston, Texas and cruises from Tampa, Florida.  They have the largest range of Bahamas cruises from three night weekend getaways to longer cruises up to one week, and and a very comprehensive range of Caribbean cruises ranging from four to six night cruises heading to the eastern and western Caribbean, and seven and eight night itineraries which will also get you down into the Southern Caribbean. Carnival International have also introduced a small number of cruises to Cuba in their Caribbean repertoire, so be sure to check those out.

You can also tack a cruise onto your New York holiday with Carnival cruises from New York to Bermuda and the eastern Caribbean.

Sailing between coasts Carnival Cruises offers a number of both partial and full Panama Canal crossings from California, Texas and Florida.
