Unique Vacation Ideas
Let’s take your basic vacation and bump it up a notch with a Carnival Corporation Cruise. All ten Carnival Corporation brands provide unique and personal learning opportunities for travelers looking for more than just an average vacation.
Not only that, cruises make it possible to enjoy more in a short time, with everything you need on board in one place. And with less planning and stress it’s a no brainer! Here are some of the awesome opportunities onboard.
Carnival Cruise Line has more options than a hotel. With no hassle of bookings and reservations -- there’s an onboard waterpark, Build-A-Bear Workshop, mixologist competitions. There’s lessons on making those legendary towel animals like the cabin stewards and even beer making lessons on Carnival Vista!
If you’re cruising with Holland America Line, you can take lessons in local, cultural rituals like learning the haka and poi dance in New Zealand - or making fresh flower leis in Hawaii and playing the ukelele. There’s BBC Earth documentaries, game shows and trivia. Classes for using Photo Gallery and Movie Maker. Even hands on cooking classes!
On Costa Cruises, pick up a new language and take complimentary Italian classes.
Guests on Princess Cruises can try “Stargazing with Discovery at Sea,” And Navigation@ Sea teaches the history of navigation. There’s also the Ultimate Ship Tour for a fun behind-the-scenes look.
And on luxury cruise line Seabourn, there’s a one to one employee to guest ratio, so cruisers get a personal, exclusive experience. One fun idea is to take hands-on watercolor classes and have your works displayed in a gallery on board.
Ever tried your hand at fencing? Take complimentary classes when cruising with Cunard on board the Queen Mary 2! You can also try the acting workshops!
And On Fathom sharpen your storytelling skills with a class like “The Story of You.” There’s also Wine and Paint classes.
So many fabulous ways to enrich your own personal vacation experiences on a cruise and everything is on board in one place!
And when it comes to planning, Carnival Corporation’s Online apps make everything easy. The free Hub app gives you fast access to everything on board.
With the Holland America Alaska App you can navigate the ship as it navigates the sea. Princess@ Sea send info directly to your mobile device so you can plan and discover all the exciting events and activities on board.
The AIDA Cruises app gives guests live, real time news from on board, as well as breathtaking photos from current destinations.
And With Costa Cruises’ app, MyCosta Mobile, take a 360-degree tour of every nook and cranny of the ships.
So now that I’ve shared some of the awesome reasons to Cruise, it’s time to book your own vacation and see for yourself! Just visit CarnivalCorp.com and Happy Travels!
