Christmas all aboard? Carnival Cruise Line offers Funtastic Christmas Cruises for families of all ages while still offering reasonable prices. The extravagant cruise ship is full of mistletoe, trees, festive lights and decorations that makes this cruise one for the books.


This cruise is a great fit for anyone who loves the holidays, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza … you name it. Between the Christmas tree lighting and the nightly menorah lighting, the cruise welcomes everyone, and the staff is there to ensure everyone has a great time no matter what you celebrate, especially if you are a fan of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.


Part of the cruise consists of Grinchmas and is inspired by Dr. Suess’ classic. The Grinch will make guest appearances throughout your whole trip and join your family fun. Be on the lookout!

Other activities include holiday dinners and breakfasts decked out with decorations and holiday cheer. Aside from just Christmas activities on the ship, the cruise offers all of the same amenities as a typical Carnival cruise.


Therefore, your trip will be filled with fun activities such as waterslides, fine dining, exhilarating entertainment and parties for kids and teens. There are even plenty of outdoor activities for all ages. If you want to relax away from the splashing children, there is a Serenity Adult-Only Retreat and a jogging track with a full ocean view. If you are more into the party scene, there are multiple high-energy performances, DJs and comedy club parties until after hours.


Rooms vary between all shapes and sizes but one thing remains certain, there is always complimentary room service on the menu and the staff won’t hesitate to cater to your needs. Aside from room service, there are menus ready to satisfy picky eaters and multiple places to grab a quick bite. On the cruise ship there are formal restaurants where the chefs impress customers preparing delicious cuisine ranging from exotic to simple comfort food.


The length and destinations of each cruise varies. You can choose to explore the Caribbean, The Bahamas, Hawai’i, Mexico or even the Panama Canal. Cruises span from two to 10-plus days.
