Carnival Cruise’s tag line is the Fun Ships and with all the activities and nooks on board to hang out in, let alone the Caribbean destinations we spent sunny days wandering through, I concur. You won’t find a mobility scooter on these ships, but you will find an outdoor movie screen and water slide.

Here is a look around so you’ll know what to expect:
We pulled out of Miami alongside this sister ship and watching the city become the Florida Keys
Peering down into the atrium, we decided for exercise we would take the stairs. They do have lifts for those who can’t be bothered!
Then it was off to find a pozzy by the pool – and the cocktail of the day 🙂
Families and adults alike whizzed down the slide in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. As you do.
In the evenings you can watch a show indoors, or sit under the stars and watch a movie here
I poked my nose into the disco. This is for the youngies and not so’s to dance the night away.
Grab a drink and a game at the Sports Bar – or send your blokes here while you hit the spa!
Or head out to the deck and enjoy the cocktail of the day at the Red Frog Rum Bar
The Golden Olympian Restaurant where you’ll get your own table for the week
This is the Silver Olympian Restaurant, just as ornate for dinners
We loved the art auctions just for the chance to see an etching like this, hand signed by Picasso in 1934. Can’t remember what it went for but REALLY wanted it!
My sister and I set ourselves a daily limit of $20 at the casino. For some reason she always ended up better off.
For live piano and a drink away from the throng, this bar is clever and buzzing – altho not during the day. Clearly.

On sea days the Venetian Palace is a comedy and games venue and at night it’s where musical shows are performed
60% of cabins have balconies and I would definitely recommend this so you can while away your afternoons in private. King beds can be split into twins.
By the end of the week this could be your towel collection created by your cabin boy each day. You can also attend a class and learn how to make them!
First stop: Cozumel Mexico. These folks wanted to be paid for a photo so I snuck one. We went on a kayak tour and roamed the town buying trinkets and drinking margaritas 🙂
Second stop: Cayman Islands and Stingray City where playing with wild stingrays is normal. That’s my brother.
Last stop: Jamaica where we both bought paintings from this guy that still remind us our awesome cruise in the Caribbean!
