How to Plan a Family Vacation with Carnival Cruise!

Are you daydreaming about being in the Caribbean with your family?

Dreaming of sunny beaches and balmy tropical weather? Consider a family cruise to the Caribbean with Carnival Cruise Line. We are going to share with you how to plan your perfect getaway!

Choose Your Destination

First, we need to decide where to sail to. You can choose from the Eastern, Western, and Southern Caribbean, which offers stops in The Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Belize, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and more. Decide what activities and sights your family wants to explore onshore. Maybe you want to tour Mayan ruins, swim with dolphins, or ride zip lines through rainforests.

Select a Sailing Date

The good thing about Carnival ships is that, as with most of their cruises, they offer year-round voyages with itineraries ranging from two to over six days. With this in mind, you can decide if you want a quick trip or an extended summer adventure. Longer cruises allow for more ports of call, while shorter ones provide a taste of the destinations.

Make Travel Arrangements

You need to plan your travel to the departure port, considering flights and accommodations if you're arriving the day before. Explore interesting departure cities to make your pre-cruise experience better and visit family members nearby! Oh, and try out some restaurants and local food too, yummy!

Explore Onboard Activities

Carnival cruises offer amazing onboard activities that are worth enjoying. There is onboard entertainment for all ages, from waterparks and sports facilities to spa retreats and IMAX theaters. You can check out Camp Ocean for kids, Circle “C” for pre-teens, and Club O2 for teens, everyone has the chance to enjoy this cruise line.

Choose Your Stateroom

Select a stateroom based on your preferences and budget. Options include suites, balconies, ocean views, and interiors. Consider room location for easy access to amenities and activities.

Pack casually for daytime activities and opt for dressier outfits for evening dinners. Remember to bring swimwear, sunscreen, passports, medications, and essentials for the kids. Prepare a carry-on bag with immediate necessities for embarkation.
