Carnival Cruises in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific

Docked in Sydney Harbour

Carnival Cruises operate with year-round itineraries in Australia and the South Pacific aboard two popular Fun Ships with a wide range of departures from Sydneyfrom Melbourne and new to Carnival’s repertoire, from Brisbane.

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. Cruises to New Zealand are much more infrequent, so get in quick!

Carnival also have a number of short 2 to 4 night Sea Break cruises on offer for those looking for a quick getaway or if you’re wanting to give cruising a try.  A lot of these itineraries are considered ‘cruises to nowhere’ where you simply cruise into the ocean, turn around, and cruise back, however Carnival’s 4 night itineraries give you the opportunity to visit one port of call throughout your journey.

If you are looking for a value cruise deal, view Carnival cruises under $1,000 or last minute cruises.


Carnival is returning to Europe in 2020.  Offering only a handful of cruises, Carnival Legend and Carnival Radiance will be departing from Dover, Barcelona and Venice and will be operating cruises to the Mediterranean and Western/Northern Europe.

North America and the Caribbean

For Hawaii, each April a Carnival ship leaves Australian waters and makes her way from Sydney to Honolulu en route to spending the northern hemisphere summer season offering cruises exploring Alaska. In September of each year, the ships then return via Hawaii to Sydney or Brisbane 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 an extensive range of cruises elsewhere throughout America, from the east coast to the west coast, Panama Canal and in between. On the west coast, Carnival cruises depart from Los Angeles, Seattle and Vancouver.  Cruises from Los Angeles offer an extensive program of Mexican itineraries.  Choose from 2, 3 and 4 night Baja Mexico cruises or longer 6 and 7 night Mexico Riviera cruises.   Also available are a selection of cruises through Hawaii of 10 nights or more departing from Los Angeles, Honolulu San Diego, San Francisco or Vancouver.

Visiting Grand Turk Island, Turks and Caicos

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 4 to 6 night cruises heading to the eastern and western Caribbean, and 7 and 8 night itineraries which will also get you down into the Southern Caribbean. You can also tack a cruise onto your New York holiday with Carnival cruises from New York to Bermuda and the eastern Caribbean.

Central America

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

Fun for all!  All for fun!

You’re thinking about what to do for your holiday and the usual suspects come to mind: beach holidays, theme parks and road trips. Well, if none of these ideas make your heart beat faster, then consider it a sign. This is the year to do something different. Because nothing takes you further away from an ordinary holiday than a Carnival cruise.

Think about it. No, don’t think about it. Imagine it. Feeling the stress melt away as you get a hot stone treatment. Playing nine holes of mini-golf at 21 knots. Taking the ultimate plunge at Carnival WaterWorks. Dining while being serenaded by an orchestra of waves. Exploring the seabed in a glass-bottom boat in New Caledonia, Vanuatu or the crystal seas of the Caribbean. Feasting away at a beachside barbie in the Mexican Riviera. Or maybe feeling the wind in your hair on a 4WD safari in New Zealand or while trekking the stunning scenery of Canada & New England. We’re talking the kind of fun you’ll want to tell people about. But you’ll have to wait ’til you get home. You won’t have time for postcards when you’re having this much fun. Sorry, Grandma.

You see, the whole point of a holiday is to get away from everything ordinary for a while. Put on your fun hat. Let loose. Unleash. And nothing does that better than a Carnival cruise. So come aboard, join us and have the kind of holiday you’ve only imagined.
