Carnival Cruise Lines' Carnival Spirit is the newest and largest ship to be home ported in Australia, arriving in October 2012. Spirit will be sailing 8 – 12 day itineraries to New Caledonia, Fiji, Vanuatu and New Zealand. Carnival Spirit will be the ultimate holiday experience for a trip with the girls, a trip with your partner, or a trip for the whole family.
Carnival Cruise Lines is the world's largest cruise line, based out of Miami, Florida. Never before has Carnival based one of their ships outside of US waters, so sending Carnival Spirit to its new home of Sydney Harbour is a huge first for the company. Carnival saw that the fun, spirited nature of their brand was a perfect match for Australian holiday-makers.
In addition, Carnival Spirit is getting a complete Aussie makeover - fresh Australian food, wine and coffee for the gourmands; a vast adult-only -Serenity' deck for the grown-ups and a newly fitted Fitness Centre. For the wild at heart, there's Carnival Spirit's star attraction - Green Thunder - the world's steepest and fastest waterslide at sea!
In addition to the 16 bars and lounges, a live comedy club, three restaurants and a mini golf course, there are up to 40 daily activities ranging from trivia and bingo to movie nights, singing in the piano bar and cocktail-making by the pool. Ah! Definitely can't say all that in one breath!
If you need a spacious, chilled-out, adults-only retreat after all that activity, Serenity is for you. There's a pool and Jacuzzi, and best of all, a full service bar for that all-important afternoon cocktail, enjoyed while gazing out to sea...
