Top 5 Carnival Cruise Line On-board Activities


Carnival Cruise Lines is one of the biggest names in the industry and offers its passengers a huge selection of enticing on-board activities. To whet your palate for what’s on offer we’ve selected five of our favourite picks!


Nothing embodies the essence of cruising more than a sun soaked poolside session. Carnival has taken this concept to a whole new level with its ultra-exciting WaterWorks parks found on-board selected ships. With its spiralling twists and turns the Twister Waterslide is the fastest and wettest ride at-sea. Challenge your friends and family to a contest on the parallel racing slides of Speedway Splash, get drenched on DrainPipe and dare to take on the extreme saturation of the PowerDrencher Kids and adults alike are encouraged to throw on their swim suits and join in the fun!


Playlist Productions

Love to dance? Carnival’s toe tapping Playlist Productions nights are guaranteed to get you in the groove. The theatrical musicals take a handful of well-known tunes and transform them into top notch musical productions starring a cast of professional singers and dancers.  Dance the night away to the sizzling tunes of Latin Nights, the dazzling sounds of Diva, the old favourites of Motor City, the iconic songs of The Brits, the stage shaking beats of Epic Rock and the exclusive Studio VIP experience.
