Serenity Pool onboard a Carnival Cruise

The kids can take care of themselves… so now what? After spending years of making arrangements for and entertaining the kids, it’s time for parents to turn their attention to themselves.

Carnival polled 1,000 Australians with older children and found:

  • 82% felt their relationship would benefit from a child-free holiday

  • 92% of respondents said that it was important or very important to share new experiences with their partner

Here’s what that a cruise without the kids would look like:

Take A Break - You Earned It

At the Spa Carnival, getting pampered is as easy as 1-2-3. Enjoy hot stone massages, aromatherapy or full-body wraps, and feel the stress melt away as the soothing ambiance begins to work its magic. And consider dinner plans sorted. Just step out of your stateroom and be seated in a world-class restaurant -  no designated driver necessary. After dinner, wander over to the casino, cocktail bar, Piano Bar, Punchliner Comedy club or dance floor - no taxis, no long walks in high heels.

And Carnival now offers short cruises for those who want to have a getaway, come home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, and still have annual leave for your next holiday. No excuse not to take a break now!

Celebrate Each Other

Lazy days on the ocean, tropical islands, and endless nights of amazing food, wine entertainment… these are the ingredients to bake celebration into the trip. Cruises offer a variety of activities onboard and excursions on land, ensuring you get the chance to do what makes you the happiest.

For couples looking to light the spark of romance, enter Serenity Retreat, our adults-only area where you and your partner can sit back, relax, and take in a golden, open-ocean sunset while sipping on a tropical cocktail. Or at Cherry On Top onboard, surprise your partner with a bouquet of flowers and mouth-watering cakes.
