6 Night South Pacific
Carnival Cruise Line - AU/NZ
Main Events 6 Nights
Departing from Sydney, Australia on Sunday, 5 November 2017

The Pacific Ocean has more than eleven million square miles of ocean dotted with islands, some no larger than a suburban back yard.

The names themselves conjure up images of times past, great voyages of discovery and pitched battles, now etched in history - Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, New Caledonia, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Samoa - they all have a charm and allure which has attracted explorers, adventurers and fortune seekers since the dawn of time.

Thirteen island nations, with a total population of just over 6 million people offer so much to see and do. Going on a cruise to the rich and diverse South Pacific will let you experience the enchanting islands and beautiful people that for hundreds of years stirred the mind and excited the imagination.

There's heaps of fun on offer and something for everyone; little ones, big ones and the whole family.

If you like a flutter on the pokies there's also a casino. Quite simply, you can pick and choose to create your own memorable holiday whilst onboard.

Kids and Teens

Seuss at Sea

From the whimsical and always wonderful world of Dr. Seuss comes Cats in Hats, Fish Red and Blue, and both kinds of Things - 1 and 2. And they're all coming to a Carnival cruise near you as the world of Dr. Seuss leaps off the page and onto Seuss at Sea. Dr. Seuss's timeless stories are the kind kids memorise, and this is the kind of cruise you'll remember for a lifetime. The whole family will still enjoy all the classic Carnival activities, but the littlest ones, and their families, will also enjoy an all-new, extra-special experience as the fantastical world of Dr. Seuss comes to life around them. Enjoy a special onboard character parade, interactive story time, arts & crafts activities, character breakfast and more, featuring their favourite Dr. Seuss characters. Seuss at Sea truly brings your child's favourite books to life.

Camp Carnival

It's everything they love about summer camp and their favourite babysitter, all in one! Camp Carnival offers tons of activities designed for children in three different age groups: 2 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years, and 9 to 11 years. Our counsellors, each with education or childcare experience, are on the clock making sure everyone in the small groups of kids is having fun. When it's mealtime, kids get their own menus, with faves like mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, and more. And when the sun goes down, we offer Night Owls (fees apply) so kids get to stay up late having fun, while their parents also enjoy themselves well into the night.

Camp Ocean

When families cruise Carnival, even the smallest fish in the pond have a big, awesome time. Okay, so it's actually way more than just a pond - it's Camp Ocean. At Camp Ocean, - 11 year-olds stay busy, keep active and have fun as they enjoy all new ocean-themed activities and entertainment made for kids. We put campers into supervised, age-based groups and give each a cool marine-life label thatís sure to raise the sails on camaraderie at sea. The littlest little ones - ages 2 to 5 - join the Penguin colony and engage in activities like Musical Icebergs and Ocean Bingo... even learning a thing or two about buoyancy! The little-biggers, 6 to 8, are the way-cool Stingrays, who might be found enjoying Pirate Game Night, making sea salt art or even designing their own aquarium. The big fish are the Sharks - ages 9 to 11 - who really sink their teeth into playing Marine Life Trivia, creating a giant ocean mural, and scoring big with sea-themed volleyball or soccer. Our counselors, each with education or childcare experience, are there to make sure everyone in these small groups has an amazing time.

Circle "C"

What does the "C" in Circle "C" stand for? Well, 'chill,' 'connect' and 'cool,' just to name a few. It's where young teens ages 12 to 14 go to hang out, meet new friends, and enjoy some pretty awesome activities like dance parties, games, outdoor movies and more, in the special Circle "C" area or around the ship. It's all supervised by friendly and fun-loving counsellors who want your young teens to have the best holiday ever.

Club O2

Your parents deserve a nice holiday... but then again, so do you. So let's let them go do their thing while you do yours. Where to? Club O2. Hang out and do stuff like watch movies, listen to music from this decade, play sports and video games, join karaoke jam sessions... maybe even have a pool party or two, all with other high schoolers aged 15 to 17. We even set up teens-only shore excursions, so you can enjoy the sights at our beautiful ports with your new friends.

Build-A-Bear Workshop at Sea (charges apply)

A Carnival cruise gives kids plenty of chances to make new friends... but never before quite like this. When kids visit the Build-A-Bear Workshop at Sea, they use their small hands and big creativity to bring a new stuffed friend to life. They can customise theirs from head to toe by choosing the clothing and accessories, and even give their new friend a voice and message of its own by integrating a customisable voice chip. The cuddly bears are just the beginning - these stuffed friends come in all shapes, like a monkey, sea turtle, dog, bunny... and the cutest shark imaginable. There's even a bear with a special Carnival-exclusive design!

Waterworks

Wanna splish - and splash - the day away? Head on over to Carnival WaterWorksTM, our onboard waterpark. First up, there's Carnival's Twister WaterslideTM, hundreds of feet of spiraling awesomeness that starts you off high in the air and gets you down low with one of the fastest, wettest rides you'll find anywhere.

Spa and Fitness

Spa Carnival (charges apply)

When it comes to complete relaxation from the inside out, nothing beats a trip to the spa. From the minute you step inside, the soothing ambiance begins to work its magic. Renew yourself with premium beauty and wellness therapies, like hot stone massages, aromatherapy or full-body wraps. This is your time to be spoiled, indulged and even beautified. Lie back, close your eyes, and feel the stress sail away as your body and mind experience total tranquility. (Oh yeah, and this feel-good stuff isn't just for the ladies -blokes, there are plenty of treatments on our menu for you too.)

Serenity Adult Only Retreat

Somebody at Carnival knows just what you need, and it's the Adult-Only SerenityTM Retreat. You'll still be on the same ship as the kids, the hoopla, and all the Carnival-style excitement... but you could easily forget, because when you're at Serenity you could not be further from it all. You'll find yourself with sea breezes, swaying hammocks and, of course, a nearby bar. It's the place to get done the kind of stuff you just can't seem to do anywhere else - reconnect with your partner, finish that book, lavish some spa time, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.

Fitness Center

We have some bad news for you - your ship has a gym. In other words, there's no excuse for leaving your fitness routine back on land. That's great news, however, for your body, which will definitely benefit from all the extra energy that a rejuvenating cruise is sure to generate. And let's not forget the extra time you'll have, since you won't be waking up and spending most of the day at the office or anything like that. If those were some of your go-to excuses, we're sorry, but we all know this is important. Why not treat yourself to some of our fitness classes - you might even have a little fun while you do something great for yourself!

Dance Classes

When you're on a Carnival cruise, there are plenty of places to bust out your moves when the mood strikes, from the dance club, to deck parties. Some people are born with all the right moves, but the rest of us need a little instruction to smooth those sharp edges. That's why you'll find a host of free dance classes that sail along with you, helping you make the most of your cruise... which is perfect because a cruise is just the kind of holiday that puts you in the dancing mood!

Fitness Classes (charges apply)

You can have all the will in the world, a great attitude that keeps you working hard at the gym, but still not see the results you're hoping for. If that's the case - or you're just looking to shake things up with a little extra fun or challenge in your workout - check out Carnival's selection of onboard fitness classes. Whether it's yoga, Pilates, indoor cycling or boot camp, there's a fitness class that'll get you the workout you need, and the instruction you need to do it right. Looking for a little extra attention? Look to personal training for a workout with that personal touch.

Acupuncture (charges apply)

Lots of pins in your body - who would want that? Lots of people, clearly - acupuncture is performed all around the world, and has been used for all manner of ailments for thousands of years. Whether you're looking to pinpoint a specific health concern or just searching for a different way to relax, our onboard, licensed acupuncturist's table is a great place to do it. (Some common ailments that draw people to the acupuncturist? Back pain, arthritis, digestive disorders and more.)

  • Hair & Beauty Salon
  • Men's Services

Bars and Lounges

RedFrog Pub

Get into an island state of mind before you even set foot on one. RedFrog Pub is our laid-back, no-worries, oh-so-lively Pacific Island-inspired pub. Sample tropical fare, dominate at the foosball table, enjoy some sweet tunes and sip our tasty signature private-label craft beer; Thirsty Frog Summer Ale. So kick back and feel the island vibe come to life. You'll be a local here before you know it.

BlueIguana Tequila Bar

BlueIguana Tequila Bar is the onboard spot to chill and enjoy a slushy tequila drink or an ice-cold Mexican cerveza. The menu offers up Mexican favorites, including several brands of tequila and a slew of Mexican brews. There's a lineup of frozen concoctions, cocktails and margaritas served by the glass or by the pitcher, and even a special Mexican beer cocktail (yes, really). Where can you find this little slice of Mexican paradise? Next to the pool, of course. So stay cool and take in the bar's vacation vibe while you kick back on your cruise - that's what official bar mascot Blue the Iguana would tell you.

Sports Bar

Just because you're on a holiday doesn't mean you should miss the action back home! Whether you're here to barrack for your home team or you just want to check in on the scores, you'll love the energy-filled atmosphere of the sports bar. Order your go-to drink and just kick back as you watch your favourite sports come to life on our big flat-screen TVs.

Piano Bar

Play it again, Sam. Or Diana. Or whatever your name is. Because this is the bar where you call the shots - and the songs. Pull up a seat, order your favourite cocktail, and let your friendly piano player know which songs you'd like to hear. Then join the sing-along for a hand-clapping, foot-tapping, finger-snapping good time. Don't feel like flexing your vocal cords? No worries. Shy songbirds are welcome here, too. And since it's open from early evening to late at night, it's the perfect spot for a before-dinner drink or singing 'til the wee hours of the evening.

RedFrog Rum Bar

Guests have told us we hit on something special with the cool Caribbean chill of the RedFrog Pub. We've taken the best parts and brought them poolside with the RedFrog Rum Bar, where the frog keeps the fun hopping day and night with all the island flava you know and love. Join the party at this poolside bar featuring a great selection of frog-approved Caribbean rum-based concoctions available by the glass or pitcher, plus plenty of Carnival's signature private-label draft beer, ThirstyFrog Summer Ale.

Casino Bar

Winning big in the casino is big fun, and your next stop is celebrating with a top-shelf drink. Located right off the casino floor, the casino bar serves up your favourite cocktails, beer and wine, making this the perfect spot to celebrate with family, friends... and maybe even total strangers.

SKYBOX Sports Bar

Get hands-on with a game, a drink... and high-fives galore! SKYBOX Sports Bar gets you right into the front row of onboard sports action. Grab a drink or order some snacks - they're great while kicking back and watching your favourite teams on one of the big screens, or just dropping by to check out real-time scores and headlines. And if you're feeling lucky, feel free to grab a controller and get a little competitive with the latest sports game titles. They're free to play, so find a friend or three and get set for some serious play-action.

Cruise the Vineyards

From the soft and fruity flavor of the Merlot to the light and dry Sauvignon Blanc, for those who appreciate wine, a Cruise the Vineyard package is a must. Choose from three packages featuring selections from Italy, New Zealand, France, Australia, Germany, California, Washington and Oregon. Sip and savour favorites at a discounted price - ask your Dining Room server onboard how.

Alchemy Bar

You don't need to be a mix-master to appreciate Alchemy - you just have to be up for trying something new. We've been stirring up some magic behind the scenes here at Carnival to produce a tasty series of all-new cocktails served at this unique vintage-themed cocktail "pharmacy." Let our cocktail specialists prescribe you something from the bar, with both nonalcoholic and alcoholic elixirs to remedy what ails you. Or, create your own custom concoction from a variety of unique ingredients.

Dining

Guy's Burger Joint

We went looking for someone to help us grill up the best burgers at sea, and we found just the guy. Carnival has teamed up with best-selling American author, restaurateur and Food Network personality Guy Fieri, to bring all the authentic appeal of a roadside burger shack to Guy's Burger Joint. Try a fresh-off-the-grill burger Guy's way, or take it off-road to our toppings bar and truly make it your own.

Dining Room

The Carnival Cruise Empire dining room offers an elegant and relaxing setting in which to enjoy a full three course menu! It's filling, but never stuffy - you're just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order dessert. Dessert's included - but don't skip straight to dessert, because the main course is the main attraction; drop in daily and enjoy a rotating menu of delectable favourites, including steak, seafood and prime rib.

Lido Restaurant

Featuring a variety of casual dining options like Chef's Choice, Salad Bar, Carnival Deli and more, the Lido Restaurant has something to satisfy your craving. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, you can enjoy your personal favourites, while dining in the company of family and friends. It's where you can find our Pizza Pirate and Swirls ice cream... both open 24 hours a day, which ought to be enough for anybody.

Good Eats

When it comes to eating well for dinner, the name says it all. Good Eats is just the spot to enjoy a casual self-serve dinner . Enjoy strip steak, pork chops served with rice or roasted potatoes, a carving station and so much more. There's something different on the menu every night.

The Carnival Deli

Looking for a tasty sandwich or wrap for lunch? Drop by the Carnival Deli. Enjoy hot pastrami on rye, or how about roast turkey breast on a country roll? Our sandwiches and wraps are hand-carved and served fresh with coleslaw or relish. Satisfy your craving for a great sandwich and make sure you don't forget the pickle on the side.

Pizza Pirate

Tossing dough is an age-old art passed down the generations. Lucky for you, someone passed us the secret to the perfect pizza. This is the place that will shiver your timbers and warm you to the bone, 24 hours a day, with a Margherita, Funghi, Prosciutto, Pepperoni or Quattro Formaggi pizza. Savvy? Then it's the pirate's life for you!

Breakfast Grill

If the smell of breakfast cooking doesn't help open your eyes, our fresh coffee will do the trick. Drag yourself out of bed and over to the Lido Restaurant where you'll enjoy made-to-order omelettes, fluffy stacks of pancakes or indulge in some sizzling sausage or bacon for a delicious and energising way to start the day.

Off The Grill

Join our masters of the grill as they practice their craft right in front of you, serving up outdoor favourites like hamburgers, hot dogs and grilled chicken. Smother them with sauteed onions and mushrooms, or go traditional with some tomato sauce and mustard. Either way, Off the Grill is the perfect place to enjoy these classics by the pool.

Fat Jimmy's C-Side BBQ

You don't have to leave behind your desire for a great barbie when you cruise. Fat Jimmy, our resident expert, simmers sauces and serves up backyard-and-beach-cookout fare like Italian sausage, barbecue chicken breast, and classic pulled-pork sandwiches. He hasn't forgotten the details either, the sides that get your barbeque juices flowing: roasted pumpkin, coleslaw, and potato salad, to name a few. Bring everyone, because like any great family gathering, the food's awesome, free... and there's plenty of it.

Sweet Spot

There's nothing sweeter than a visit to Sweet Spot for our marble chocolate cheesecake, lemon cream pies, cherry crumble squares and more. There's something for everyone, including healthier options like fresh fruit medleys. Save room for dessert - and make sure you satisfy your sweet tooth with this mix of desserts that really hit the spot.

Swirls

Swirls ice cream lets you enjoy the sweeter side of brain freeze with a treat that'll have you smiling from ear to ear. Choose from chocolate, vanilla or strawberry... or make your own mix swirled as high as you can balance it. Open on Lido deck 24/7, our soft-serve ice cream and frozen yoghurt is a great way to beat the heat all day, or the perfect night-time treat after a long evening of fun.

Activities

Sailaway Party

There are two kinds of people - land people and sea people. Unless they were born on a pirate ship, pretty much everybody starts out as a land person. And look, there's nothing wrong with that. But there's a process for becoming a sea person, and the Sailaway Party on your first Carnival cruise is where the transformation occurs. It's actually pretty easy: get there and... you're in the club and ready to celebrate! (Then, on your second Carnival cruise - and let's be honest, you'll be back - strap on your sea legs, find a cruise newbie and join them in a toast to the great times to come.)

Dive-In Movies

Ready to see stars? Park yourself in front of the big screen - the really big screen - and settle in for a night at the cinema... under some real stars. From the comfort of your poolside lounge chair, or even the pool itself, you'll enjoy the most recent blockbuster movies from categories like Comedy, Action & Adventure and Date Night. And don't think that being in the middle of the sea means going without the usual comforts. There's not only popcorn - who could forget that? - but blankets! So lounge around, snuggle up and try to remember the last time you truly enjoyed a night at the movies.

Carnival Player's Club

Joining the Carnival Players Club is easy and, best of all, free. In fact, if we've ever had the pleasure of hosting you at one of our onboard casinos, you may already be a member! But if you're just getting started, here's how it works. Guests 18 years or older can join and earn points while playing at our table games and slots. The more points you earn, the more benefits you'll get - like free drinks while you play and private invitations to Carnival Premier Cruises. To make sure you're making the most of your play, keep your Sail & Sign card inserted when playing slots, or present your card to the dealer when playing at a table. Once aboard, see your Casino Host for more details.

Fun Games

Kids never need an excuse to play and at Carnival, we believe play is important to ALL ages, so onboard games are a huge part of the Carnival experience for all, young and old! From physical challenges to scavenger hunts to the very appropriate Battle of the Ages - the trivia game that actually puts kids against adults - Carnival puts the "all" in "fun for all."

Art Auctions, Exhibitions, and Seminars

If a room full of overly serious old men, many wearing monocles, paying top-dollar for priceless antique works of art is your perception of an "art auction", then think again! Unlike a stodgy auction house, your vacation features a series of auction events designed to turn fine art into fine fun. From the rapid-fire 'Lightning' action to the cheap thrills of the 'under $500' event, there are plenty of chances to try your hand at bringing home something great and have a blast doing it. Unlike land auctions, we even hold fun interactive events like the "Guess the Price" competition. That said, our onboard auctions aren't entirely without fancy trimmings - after all, what's an auction without free-flowing champagne?

Go from 'normal holidaymaker to 'globe trotting art expert' in one cruise flat - Carnival offers such a variety of educational and enlightening seminars with an 'Art 101' lecture series designed to be your entrance into this vibrant world. We'll go from the earliest cave paintings to the modern masters - with stops at topics like the Renaissance, Baroque, Surrealism and Pop Art - and cover both theory and technique. You'll walk away with a spectrum of knowledge to use at your next art auction... or to elevate your cocktail party chatter.

Library

With wall-to-wall activities on offer, most people wouldn't consider their cruise as a great time to read a book, but you'll find the bibliophilic faithful stretched out on deck chairs, enjoying the sun, sea breeze... and a page-turner. Forgot to bring a book? E-reader battery just died? Every Carnival ship features an onboard library stocked with the good stuff. For the silent types, it's a great place to read, but if the roar of the ocean is more your soundtrack, the library is a great place to find a good read to devour, al fresco.

Onboard Internet

Is vacation a time for disconnecting? Yes! But isn't it a great time to stay connected and share the good times you're having with everyone back home? Also yes! That's why your Carnival cruise gives you options for just how in-touch you want to stay. Looking to share every moment as it happens, hashtag it up and get all the Likes? You're gonna love our onboard WiFi, which lets you do the social thing and connect your phone, tablet or laptop wherever you are on the ship. Or are you looking to check in every now and then - have a look at your email, check the news and send a note home? Stop in to your ship's Internet Cafe, sit down at a computer and enjoy the kinda-connected life. Vacation purist looking to get away from all the news feeds and trending whatevers? We dig your style - a Carnival cruise remains the disconnectedest kind of vacation.

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. Abseiling down the face of a waterfall in Vanuatu. Feasting away at a beachside barbie in Fiji.Or maybe feeling the wind in your hair on a 4WD safari in New Zealand. 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.
