Leaving from our own turf, get on board with endless entertainment, non-stop fun, and cruise memories to last a lifetime.
Carnival Cruises Australia

Carnival Cruises Australia is designed and catered towards Australian cruisers, with both ships, the Carnival Spirit and the Carnival Legend, cruising from Sydney and Brisbane. They are designed and refurbished for the Australian cruise market, with benefits such as Australian Currency on board, no required tipping, Australian coffee and beers, and other Australian favorites, like a barbie on the outside deck.

Carnival Cruises Australia offers inter-connecting staterooms, great for families of all sizes, or bigger groups wanting to be close to each other. With diverse activities every day there is something for everyone, including children and youth programmes for ages 2-17.

Hit the pool decks and experience 'Carnival Waterworks' - fun for all ages, 'SplashZone' is great for the younger cruisers, and 'Green Thunder' for the thrill seekers in the family. After the abundance of high energy activities, parents may want to relax on the adults-only 'Serenity Deck'.

Embark on a cruise holiday and experience the Pacific Islands, discover New Zealand or explore your homeland.
