Carnival Pride charms, alright it is a treat for the eyes, the taste buds and of course the fun buds.
Dine refined, from the zen-like simplicity of Bonsai Sushi to the muted hues of the Normandie Restaurant... not to mention the Renaissance-era allure of David's Steakhouse. And of course there's real, delectable substance under all that style. For something a little more casual, try a main course from our main man, Guy Fieri, at Guy's Burger Joint. The Mexican heat's optional at BlueIguana Cantina, but make your next stop Cherry on Top - our candy-and-more store - where the sweet's required.
You'll find yourself with room to move at Beauties Dance Club, and a hard time sitting still at Playlist Productions. All around this cruise ship you'll discover even more ways to stay cool, like an adult-only pool at Serenity, a fun-only midship pool featuring a retractable roof... and Carnival Pride's splashy onboard waterpark, Carnival WaterWorks. Alongside the pool is the big-fun Carnival Seaside Theater, while Seuss at Sea is a good time for those who love a good rhyme. Camp Ocean, Circle "C" and Club O2 prove that we’ve got hotspots for all the cool kids... while at Hasbro, The Game Show, kids and adults join forces in a friendly, larger-than-life game show showdown!
BlueIguana Tequila Bar
BlueIguana Tequila Bar is the onboard spot to chill and enjoy a slushy tequila drink or an ice-cold Mexican cerveza. The menu offers up Mexican favorites, including several brands of tequila and a slew of Mexican brews. There's a lineup of frozen concoctions, cocktails and margaritas served by the glass or by the pitcher, and even a special Mexican beer cocktail (yes, really). Where can you find this little slice of Mexican paradise? Next to the pool, of course. So stay cool and take in the bar's vacation vibe while you kick back on your cruise that's what official bar mascot Blue the Iguana would tell you.
Wanna splish - and splash - the day away? Head on over to WaterWorks, Carnival's onboard waterpark. First up, there's the Twister Waterslide, hundreds of feet of spiraling awesomeness that starts you off high in the air and gets you down low with one of the fastest, wettest rides you'll find anywhere. Select ships have side-by-side racing slides, which make serious competition seriously fun. Wear your speed suit for Speedway Splash, which features hundreds of feet of racing action, plus special lighting effects you'll experience on the road to victory. DrainPipe ends with one major swirl of a finish, while PowerDrencher takes soaking seriously - imagine the biggest bucket of water you've ever seen, raining down on you from above. And this isn't just kids' stuff - the young at heart are encouraged to zoom and splash around too! (WaterWorks configurations vary by ship.)
When was the last time you got up and danced... at the theater? Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and presents them like you've never experienced before - past favorites become full-blown musical productions featuring singers and dancers bringing down the house. Enjoy the spicy sounds of Latin Nights, or the larger-than-life favorites (and personalities) of Divas. Don't forget Motor City - which will have you dancing in your seat - or even The Brits!, a swingin' revue of your across-the-pond favourites. Enter the center of groove with the passionate Heart of Soul. Rounding out the lineup is the anything-but-square Getaway Island, the arena-shaking sounds of Epic Rock, the piano-pounding 88 Keys, the totally bad-meaning-good 80s Pop to the Max, plus the funky, sophisticated... and not at all exclusive Studio VIP, where everyone's welcome to come and get down!
Cherry On Top
A cruise is the perfect time to treat yourself to something sweet, and Cherry On Top happens to be the perfect place. You'll find this well-stocked candy-and-more-store not only great for enjoying some of your confectionery favorites, but the place to pick up food and apparel gifts for that special someone, even if - admit it - that someone happens to be you!
Scream for the cool stuff? Visit the ice cream counter at the Cherry On Top shops aboard Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon for a signature ice cream creation, or build your own with tons of mix-ins and topping options. And if you get the urge to eat ice cream with your hands, we won't judge... we'll just suggest one of our all-new ice cream cookie sandwiches. We'll build you one by hand, and stuff it full of whatever ice cream and toppings you scream for.
Carnival's Seaside Theatre
Night time isn't the only time to see stars on your cruise. Day or night, find a spot on deck and check out the huge poolside screen - it's Carnival Seaside Theater Hit movies, live sporting events, concerts and even cartoons for the kids are just some of what you'll find featured at this large-scale outdoor entertainment zone. Grab a copy of the FunTimes and check the day's listings... then grab a friend or three and get ready to kick back and enjoy.
You don't need to be a mix-master to appreciate Alchemy - you just have to be up for trying something new. We've been stirring up some magic behind the scenes here at Carnival to produce a tasty series of all-new cocktails served at this unique vintage-themed cocktail "pharmacy." Let our cocktail specialists prescribe you something from the bar, with both nonalcoholic and alcoholic elixirs to remedy what ails you. Or, create your own custom concoction from a variety of unique ingredients.

When families cruise Carnival, even the smallest fish in the pond have a big, awesome time. Okay, so it's actually way more than just a pond — it's Camp Ocean. At Camp Ocean, 2–11 year-olds stay busy, keep active and have fun as they enjoy all new ocean-themed activities and entertainment made for kids. We put campers into supervised, age-based groups and give each a cool marine-life label that's sure to raise the sails on camaraderie at sea. The littlest little ones — ages 2 to 5 —join the Penguin colony and engage in activities like Musical Icebergs and Ocean Bingo… even learning a thing or two about buoyancy! The little-biggers, 6 to 8, are the way-cool Stingrays, who might be found enjoying Pirate Game Night, making sea salt art or even designing their own aquarium. The big fish are the Sharks — ages 9 to 11 — who really sink their teeth into playing Marine Life Trivia, creating a giant ocean mural, and scoring big with games and sports competitions. Our counselors, each with education or childcare experience, are there to make sure everyone in these small groups has an amazing time.

Nobody knows Mexican dining like a blue iguana. Well, our blue iguana, at least. That is why it should come as no surprise that the BlueIguana Cantina features freshly made tacos and burritos stuffed specially for your enjoyment. Throw our homemade tortillas and salsa into the mix, and you have a casual dining experience that will make you say "mmmm" (which is actually Iguanese for "more, please").

Choose from chocolate, vanilla or strawberry or make your own mix swirled as high as you can balance it.
