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 with a variety of cruises from Barcelona, followed by a summer season cruising from New York, before she settles into her Floridian homeport offering cruises from Miami. View all Carnival Horizon cruises.
Carnival Cruises From Australia
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 to New Zealand operates once a year in January from Sydney, while Carnival Legend to New Zealand cruises from Melbourne.

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.
