2018 Holiday Season Schedule

Published 08/10/2017 01:56 PM   |    Updated 09/27/2018 10:47 AM

With a festive on-board atmosphere, elaborate decorations and an array of traditional cuisine, entertainment and activities, Carnival’s ‘Fun Ship’ holiday cruises are the ideal option for reconnecting with friends, families and loved ones. A festive mood is created as soon as you arrive on board, with the ship’s atrium and promenade areas lavishly decorated in the spirit of the season. For complete details about the Holiday Season, click here.

Our Holiday Show is a magical show that’s sure to make your heart grow three sizes, with singers, dancers, a special performance by the kids and a surprise guest flown in from the North Pole!  A highlight of the cruise, this wonderful spectacular show in the main show lounge evokes a ‘home away from home’ atmosphere with its cozy set featuring a faux oversized fireplace, comfy cushions and throws, a Christmas tree with decorations created by the children from Camp Ocean, and of course, a visit from Santa. And be on the look-out for the iconic and beloved Dr. Seuss character, The Grinch!

The Spirit of the Season Atrium Moments is made up of three magical evenings filled with holiday fun:  

  • Spirit of the Season – Tree Lighting: 
Tis the season for traditions, loved ones and fun-filled celebrations. Gather your friends and family for our traditional holiday kick off, the lighting of the Christmas tree in the atrium lobby. This event takes place on the first evening of the cruise. Hosted by the Cruise Director, a magical moment where the grand Christmas tree will be lit with spectacular lights and synchronized with wonderful, heartwarming holiday music. Write out a special message for Santa and drop it in the North Pole mailbox located in the atrium lobby .. and some letters will be read on our live Morning Show. 
  • Spirit of the Season – Let it Snow!
: Celebrate the magic of the season with our very own Christmas Carol-infused winter wonderland. Sing-a-long to holiday classics and let it snow. Be on time, the snow melts fast!  
  • Spirit of the Season – ‘Tis the Season: 
Put on your most festive ugly sweater, warm up those vocal chords and gather around to help us welcome the very jolly Santa Claus himself!
