Already known for hosting the best deck parties at sea, Carnival takes it to another level - come and join the fun outdoors, up on deck!

Sail Away Party

Join your Cruise Director to kick off your vacation in true island style .. it's time to say "Adios"... "Hello Fun!"

Following the Safety Briefing and as the ship sets sail, gather at Lido Deck midship for some fun with our cruise staff - our resident DJ gets the party started with music, dancing and drink specials!

Mega Deck Party

Looking for a party you’ll never forget? We’ve got just the thing. Join the Fun Squad for fun and dancing. Smiling ear to ear is a common side effect.

The Mega Deck Party is an island inspired party that celebrates the fun and spirit of RedFrog and BlueIguana - the colorful namesake characters from our poolside watering holes. Up for some pool volleyball? The Fun Squad will get you on your feet for line dancing and Limbo - "how low can you go?". Join in and wear red or blue clothing in honor of some of our favorite places to have a drink!  

The Mega Deck Party is featured on cruises six days and longer (that feature two deck parties). On shorter cruises, it may be featured as the only deck party or replaced with the 80s Night.

80s Night Deck Party

A totally bodacious deck party with awesome giveaways, a rad 80s themed dance contest, a tubular 80s pop concert with our onboard Rock band and of course, the Thriller dance!  

The 80s Rock-N-Glow Party is a high energy, fun and unique experience that showcases our exciting musical offerings. Whether you rock up to the party in leg warmers, neon pink shirts, big gold chains and even bigger hair, you will be welcomed to dance the night away on the open deck!

The 80s Rock-N-Glow Party is featured on cruises six days and longer (that feature two deck parties). On shorter cruises, it may be featured as the only deck party or replaced with the Mega Deck Party.  


White Hot Night Party

The fun on a Carnival cruise may start at sunrise, but that doesn’t mean it comes to an end when the sun goes down. On one night of your cruise, your cruise director will be throwing a White Hot Night Party… and you’re invited! So when packing for your cruise, remember what an amazing photo op this will be and bring your favorite, most fun… even quirkiest white clothing and matching accessories. Keep the theme going head to toe, if you can. We’re counting on you to help us heat up this amazing night of dancing, giveaways, fun and more!

The White Hot Night Party is featured on select sailings. 


Northern Lights Glow Party
Light up Lido with your Entertainment team as we celebrate our version of the Northern Lights. Dress Alaska-style and join us for a high energy, fun and unique Alaska -themed deck party with great music, line dancing, giveaways and lots of Frontier Fun! 

The Northern Lights Glow Party is featured on Alaska cruises, six days and longer. It replaces the 80's Night Deck Party.
